Q: " How do I reschedule or cancel my appointment?"
A: To reschedule/cancel your appointment, please call the tattoo shop. This must be done at least three days prior to your appointment. If it is within the three days, your deposit will be pulled and to reschedule you'll have to put down another deposit. We try to be understanding and know some unexpected things happen in life so we do make exceptions so if there is a good reason why you have to cancel/reschedule your appointment within three days of your appointment, please let us know.
Q: "What happens to my deposit if I do not call ahead of time to reschedule or cancel my appointment?"
A: Your deposit will be pulled. Meaning it will be deducted from your account and to schedule an another appointment you will need to pay another deposit.
Q: "This is my first tattoo, I am a little anxious, should I bring anything and what should I expect?"
A: No need to worry, we will try our best to make this an enjoyable moment in your life. Getting a good night's rest and eating a meal prior to the tattoo session will help your body cope with the pain. And typically, you'll feel the tattoo as it is for the first 10 minutes, then your body will acclimate to the pain and it will get lesser for the next few hours. Usually after 5 or 6 hours, the pain will go back up. And feel free to bring in snacks, drinks, entertainment, and headphones (whatever you think may help distract you). And of course, our artist enjoys conversation so feel free to enjoy a conversation.
Q: "How do I schedule a touch-up session?"
A: You may call the tattoo shop or contact your artist directly.
Q: "May I see the design prior to the tattoo appointment?"
A: Yes, of course. We welcome and desire to get your tattoo vision a reality. So depending on the design we will contact you prior to your appointment with a draft where you and the artist may go back and forth with how you are liking the design and any changes to it. Also, this way the artist will be able to give his professional opinion to your tattoo ideas and what will be best for you.
Q: Do you charge by the hour or by the piece?
A: Typically, we will charge by the hour and for exceptions we will charge by the piece.
Q: How do I know if I need to book an all day session or an hourly session?
A: You will know once the artist has responded to your consulatation form fill out. It also depends on how long you can sit for while being tattooed. Sometimes it is better to bang out your tattoo out in long sessions and sometimes it is better to have shorter sessions because your pain threshold isn't as high.
Q: Does the artist ever cancel on me as the client?
A: Yes, it happens. We try not to, but because of unexpected circumstances, unfortunately they do happen. And once the artist knows he is not able to tattoo you that day, you will know so you can adjust your schedule. And your deposit will be carried on to a rescheduled appointment.
