Please note that we didn't set out to be so strict concerning our appointment and deposit rules. They are a reaction to the many people who, over the last 25 years, have showed up late, drunk, high, without ID, etc.
Deposits are not refundable
It cannot be stressed enough that you need to be on time to your appointment. We ask that you arrive fifteen minutes early so we can complete paperwork, have a conversation about the tattoo, etc.
If you are more than ten minutes late to your appointment it will be canceled and you will forfeit your deposit.
Do some research into how long it takes you to travel to the shop and then add several minutes (or an hour)! We want your experience to be a positive one so please don’t begin the process by arriving late.
Tattoos taking less than an hour require a deposit of 40% in order to make an appointment. Tattoos taking longer than two hours and all Saturday appointments require a deposit of 50%. The deposit is not refundable and goes towards the cost of your tattoo.
The balance of the cost of the tattoo is only payable in cash at the shop. We only accept Paypal and Venmo for deposits. There are multiple ATM's uptown.
If multiple people make an appointment each is responsible separately for making the deposit.
If your friend(s) backs out you may not apply their deposit towards your tattoo. They will forfeit their deposit.
You can reschedule you appointment once with a 48 hours notice. If you need to reschedule for a second time you will need to pre-pay for the tattoo before a third appointment will be given. Changing your design within 48 hours of your appointment may result in you being rescheduled and another deposit may be required.
Remember that you aren’t the only person with an appointment. So if you’re sending us messages during business hours they will go unanswered as I am tattooing other people. A message or phone call saying you will be late is not an excuse for being late. Don’t be late.
If you arrive without your ID, drunk, high, smelling of alcohol or marijuana, your appointment will be canceled and your deposit forfeited.
Appointments are made when a deposit is received. If someone gets their money in before you then they get the spot.
Again, we can’t stress enough to be punctual. We didn’t set out to have such stringent rules in writing but, alas, there are too many people who feel as if our time simply isn’t important.
