Studio Info

How do I make an appointment?

       By contacting your preferred artist directly.  Some prefer DMs/ emails, some prefer consultations. The consultation usually takes 15-30 minutes. During the consultation we'll go over your references and discuss your tattoo in detail, and we'll be able to give you a rough estimate for cost & time the tattoo will take to complete. If you'd like to book an appointment, there is a $60 -100 cash booking fee required which will go toward the cost of your tattoo.  

 If you are contacting an artist via DM / email: send your reference images, a picture (3-4 feet away and close up photo) of the body part you wish to have tattooed, size (in inches), preferred style, and any other info that will be helpful to your artist. We handle multiple requests per day, this will streamline the process for you, and the next person behind you.  Also, please be patient. We are humans with lives outside of work. Do not contact your artist on multiple platforms or contact multiple artists for your project. 

Do you take walk-ins?

     At the current time, no we do not take walk ins and work strictly by appointment only.

Can I bring my children with me while I'm being tattooed?

     In order to allow us and the other artists to fully concentrate on giving you our best work, please do not bring children with you to your appointment or consultation.
