First things first: We are cash only. To book an appointment you will need to pay a deposit which will vary on the estimated final cost of your tattoo. So we prefer that you come in first to discuss your ideas. We do cater to those coming to the shop from out of town and can arrange a deposit through paypal if need be.  The deposit is non-refundable. It will go towards the cost of the tattoo when you get it, but covers the cost of the drawing if you are a flake or a no-show. We are a custom traditional tattoo shop so it take us time to work on your drawings. Bookings with deposits can be moved, but we require 24 hours notice, otherwise your deposit will be lost. No exceptions.

We always give a rough estimate for the final cost of your piece and we are usually spot on, but the cost will be reliant on the time that it takes to complete the tattoo; from the time the artist begins work on you, to the time it is completed. For smaller pieces we will charge by the piece. For anything that is larger than 8 hours, you will be given the hourly rate of $150. When it comes to tattoos always remember: Good work ain’t cheap and cheap work ain’t good!

Keep in mind, we are a custom tattoo shop. If you can think it, we can do it. Unless it’s a bad idea for a tattoo, in which case we will guide you towards a more appropriate idea or design. Don’t be afraid to ask questions or bring in references. We love that you put thought and energy into your tattoo idea. Remember, we do this all day and while we love to collaborate with our clients, sometimes what works on your paper, doesn’t work on your skin. We want your tattoo to be cool and classic forever, so trust us! And NO, we don’t do piercings.

Walk-In’s are welcome, but not always possible since we are usually booked. It’s best to call first to find out.
