How much does a tattoo cost?
My minimum is $80, my hourly rate is $160. That said, the price of a tattoo is often dependent on the design/size/placement of the tattoo. You are always welcome to come in and chat with me for a price quote for what you are looking for, as price quotes over the phone are rather hard.
A $40 deposit will be taken for appointments, that goes towards the cost of the tattoo. They secure your appointment and are non-refundable. Please give 24 hours notice to cancel or reschedule.
How far booked out are you?
I never close my books to new appointments and like to meet fairly quickly for a consultation. Depending on your availability and mine I am usually booked out at least 2-3 months. I do have a cancellation list if you are wanting to get in sooner.
What forms of payment do you accept?
Cash, debit, and credit cards
If I'm under 18 can I get a tattoo?
Sorry to say that very strict State laws don't allow us to tattoo anyone under the age of 18, not even with parental consent.
Do you tattoo hands and feet?
Yes, but free touch-ups are not guaranteed. I will not tattoo your heel, in-step, or the bottom of your foot.
What should I wear when I get tattooed?
Comfortable clothing. Think about the location of your tattoo and come prepared with clothing that you'll be comfortable getting tattooed in.
The most important thing in terms of protecting and caring for your new tattoo is to keep it clean and allow it to breathe. After the first night of wearing the bandage on your tattoo, remove the bandage, wash the tattooed area lightly with soap and then keep your tattoo as exposed as possible. If it's on a part of your body that must be clothed wear the lightest clothing there as possible. During the healing process do not soak your tattoo. If you go swimming or take baths just be careful not to submerge your tattoo.
When your tattoo starts to itch and get dry, usually on day three or four, begin regularly and generously applying lotion. DO NOT PICK AT YOUR TATTOO. I recommend hypo-allergenic, non-scented white lotion. Avoid petroleum products or very oily lotions. After a couple weeks your tattoo will most likely be completely healed. For the life of your tattoo apply sunblock. If you have any questions at all, feel free to contact me.
