To develop custom tattoos, we start with a consultation. During the consultation, we go through any reference materials you might have and discuss the idea for the tattoo with you. The more information you can give the better we’ll understand what you’re looking to get. The consultation also provides an opportunity to discuss size, location and more importantly approximate cost. Please don’t give a reference of some other person’s tattoo and say you want the exact same tattoo. Our artists are artists after all and they respect other tattooists’ work, plus it defeats the purpose of getting a custom tattoo. After the consultation, a sketch is prepared and you are given the opportunity to make any changes before your appointment.
We tend not to book tattoo appointments or estimate tattoo prices over the telephone, although we will try our best to give you a rough estimate. Just remember your tattoo depends on a number of factors (size, complexity, colour, time, etc.). It’s always best if you come in for a consultation.
At the end of your consultation, we would book your appointment. A $100-$200 (See shop policies for more information) deposit is required at this time. This deposit is non-refundable, non-transferrable, but will be put toward the total cost of your tattoo.
Please note 48 hours notice for rescheduling an appointment is required. Please understand that missed appointments mean a loss of income. A lot of work goes into preparing for an appointment and our artists don’t like to work for free.
It’s always best to make an appointment, however if we have space on the day we will take walk ins. If we don’t have space, we will do a consultation and get you an appointment as soon as possible!
