Yes! Our shop minimum is $60-100, this is to ensure that the cost of setup, supplies and time for each session is always accounted for and fair.
Not always. We do ask for deposits when a tattoo involves a preliminary sketch/design. Designing tattoos can take awhile, and deposits help protect our artists from people taking advantage of our time. Rest assured, however, that 100% of any deposit paid go toward the total cost of the tattoo.
Respectfully, we ask you to be mindful when quotes are given. Haggling prices is not something we negotiate with, simply because we understand our value and the time the tattoo or piercing will take. Remember, you get what you pay for. Exceptions are sometimes made, but this is not a common occurrence. Thank you for understanding!
It's fairly common for clients to bring a friend, but we politely ask that you refrain from bringing any more than one or two. Groups can be very distracting and loud- and even cause anxiety for our artists/piercers. Most often times, they end up bored anyway. We'll never turn people away, we just ask that you be considerate.
We always strongly recommend that you only take inspiration from a piece that you like- but still get a unique, custom piece that's your own and nobody else's. Originality is important to us.
