Tattoo Questions & Answers

Tattoo Questions and Answers

How old do you have to be?
You must be 18 years or older with valid state or government issued photo ID.

Shop minimum?
Our minimum is $80. We accept cash or cards, no checks.

Does it hurt?
Yes. Every person has a different pain threshold. It is often compared to a cat scratch or sunburn sensation. Expect some level of discomfort. The more relaxed and calm you are the easier the procedure will be.

Can I get a quote or consultation over the phone, email, or Facebook?
Please call us on the phone to discuss options for consultations.


How do deposits work? We require $80-$150 non-refundable deposit depending on the scope of the work to be done. The deposit will be credited to your final appointment. Deposits are void if you miss your appointment or are more than 15 minutes late.

How far out are your tattoo artist booked, do I need an appointment, or do you take walk-ins?
Openings very greatly, weekends tend to book up faster and farther out. If we are available for walk-ins we will gladly squeeze you in. However, it is always recommended to make an appointment first, especially if you are coming from out of town.

How long does it take for a sleeve or back piece?
Depending on what you want it can take multiple sessions. It is a commitment for both you and the artist. A consultation will allow both you and the artist to discuss the expectations of the tattoo process.

How much do I tip for a tattoo? What is the standard? Unlike most service industries, there is no tipping standard for tattooing. We realize that tattoos can be expensive, so we simply say, “Tips are not expected, but greatly appreciated.”

Can I bring my kids? Yes, we are a family business, so well-behaved children are welcomed. Please realize that we are trying to concentrate on doing permanent art on your body.

Fussy children can be a distraction. There is no censorship of language, and we often have adult conversations. Be forewarned.
