Frequently Asked Questions

How much does a tattoo cost?

We have a $60 minimum for small tattoos. Larger tattoos are priced by the artist. We cannot quote the price of a tattoo over the phone or email.

How do I make an appointment?

Call or stop by the shop to set up a Consultation with an Artist. After the Consultation you can set a tattoo appointment. A NON-REFUNDABLE $60 deposit is required to hold your spot on the calendar. That $60 goes towards the price of your tattoo. Large tattoos may require a bigger deposit.

What happens at the consultation?

Client and artist discuss the tattoo. The client should bring any pictures or reference material with them and have a clear idea of what they want.

Do you take Walk-ins?

Yes, we usually have time for walk-ins each day that we are open. We operate on a first come first serve basis. Shop Hours: 1 PM-10 PM Mon-Sat
