We are all for moral support! Feel free to bring your best friend, parent, or significant other to keep you company and provide moral support! For Tattoo appointments, we respectfully ask that you limit your visitors in the tattoo area to 2 guests. For Piercing appointments, we ask that no more than one guest accompany you to the piercing room.
Consultations are not required, but highly recommended. A consultation with an artist is free and generally will take between 15 & 30 min. During that time you will discuss your ideas with your artist and decide on placement, size, color vs grey-scale, etc. Upon the completion of your consult, you will work with your artist to determine the best day/time for your appointment and place a deposit with your artist to reserve that time and allow your artist to begin working on your drawing.
Deposits are required for all scheduled appointments and are generally placed upon completion of your consultation. The amount of the deposit will depend on the estimated length of the session:
0-1 Hour = $40
2 Hours = $80
3-5 Hours = $120
6+ Hours = Half Session Cost
If you need to change or cancel your appointment, you must do so at least 48 hours in advance. Changes/Cancellation within 48 hours of appointment will result in forfeiture of your deposit.
Appointments are not required, but highly recommended to ensure you are able to get in. Piercing consultations are only required for minor piercings under 13y/o. During a minor consultation, your piercer will review the process with the minor and ensure they fully understand and are aware of what they will experience. We ensure proper consent has been given and will also discuss the importance of aftercare etc. Custom curated piercings are also a great opportunity to schedule a consult with your piercer.

Our artists charge by the hour and the hourly rate is between $120 - $150 per hour (Hourly rate varies by artist). If you're tattoo takes less than 1 hour, our shop minimum will apply. The standard shop minimum is $80.
What if I want a very small Tattoo?
For all tattoos that take your artist less than 1 hour to complete, you will be charged the shop minimum of $80. As an extra benefit to our clients, our artists offer you the ability to receive more than one small tattoo during your session and still only be charged the shop minimum if the duration of getting the pieces remain under 1 hour.
Why do I have to leave a deposit?
