Policies

No one under the age of 18 will be tattooed in our establishment.  Photo ID is required, NO EXCEPTIONS.  Acceptable forms of ID include a passport, driver’s license, or state issued ID card.  Please call with additional questions regarding acceptable forms of ID.

Deposits are required for all appointments. Deposits are generally $100 cash and come off the final cost of the tattoo upon completion.  If your tattoo requires multiple sittings, the deposit will carry over to the final appointment.  The deposit is not to purchase the artwork itself; it is a down payment on the total cost of the tattoo, as well as assurance that the time your artist puts into your artwork is time well spent.  Deposits are nonrefundable and nontransferable.  

If you must cancel an appointment, contact us at least 48 business-hours before your appointment in order to avoid forfeiture of your deposit.  If you need to cancel an appointment and you provide us with at least 48 hours notice, you will not lose your deposit.  However, subsequent cancellations will result in the loss of your deposit.

The following circumstances result in the forfeiture of your deposit:

- no-call/no-show for an appointment

- cancellation without at least 48 hours notice

- excessive cancellations (at our discretion)
- more than 20 minutes late for an appointment without notification

If you do forfeit your deposit, the next appointment must be prepaid in full, or any/all future appointments will be given away.  A deadline for your prepayment will be set and agreed upon with you and your artist; if this date passes, unfortunately we will have to give away any/all appointments under your name. However, if you leave your new deposit, it will follow the same rules as the initial deposit, meaning if you have multiple tattoo appointments scheduled, the deposit will carry over until the very last sitting. To make this abundantly clear, if you are required to leave a three-hour deposit, which will range from $375 - $450, you may only use this deposit at your next appointment if you DO NOT have any other appointments scheduled. If you do have additional appointments, your deposit must remain, in full, in our safe keeping until the very last appointment for your tattoo. Do your best to keep us in the loop of your scheduling dilemmas, so we never have to have the awkward conversation of a lost deposit. In addition, our artists reserve the right to discontinue services in the event they feel their time is not being respected.

Regarding lateness for tattoo appointments: Clients are charged for the duration of the tattoo appointment scheduled with us, regardless of tattoo hours worked. For example, if an appointment is scheduled from 5-8pm, but you do not arrive until 6pm, you will be charged for the full three hours originally booked. For this reason, it is important to notify us in advance if you need to change appointment times or shorten the duration of your appointment. We'd much rather tattoo you for the full length of your appointment, but if you are late by more than 20 minutes without notice, this policy will be enforced.

We understand that unforeseen circumstances can occur last-minute.  Special circumstances will be handled on a case-by-case basis. Please understand that tattooing is not just a hobby of ours. This is a business and our livelihood. Our policies are put in place to ensure that the time we invest in you is reciprocated. We appreciate your cooperation, and as always, if you have any questions regarding our policies, ask!
