WHAT ARE YOUR POLICIES RE: LATENESS
If you are more than 30 mins late for your appointment and you have not attempted to contact your artist or the shop, you will lose your appointment and your deposit will be forfeited. We are very strict about this because if you schedule an appointment with me, We make sure to prepare everything for your tattoo before our session. We might also have another client scheduled after you and we do not want to rush getting the tattoo done.
CAN I BRING FRIENDS/FAMILY DURING MY SESSION?
Of course! Just please limit it to 1 friend / family as we try to minimize foot traffic in the studio during this pandemic. Please don't bring your pets because as much as we want to welcome our furry friends, the building doesn't allow having them around and it would be more sanitary to keep them away while getting your tattoo done.
CAN YOU MAKE A CUSTOM DESIGN FOR ME?
We would love to! Just make sure you provide all the details / references for your design on the form.
We also make the designs by schedule. So please be patient and expect to see your design draft a couple of days before our appointment. If i haven't sent anything yet, don't by shy to ask for an update! We might just be working on designs for clients scheduled before you. :)
DO YOU DO COVER UPS?
We do cover ups on a case to case basis. It depends on what we're covering and what you are willing to cover it with.
HOW MUCH WILL MY TATTOO COST/ HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE?
Small/minimal tattoos usually take about an hour including the stencil prep. We can't give an estimate on big pieces though as sometimes it depends on the pain tolerance of the client. If you have concerns regarding your budget and time, please write it on the additional notes on the form.
HOW SHOULD I PREPARE FOR MY TATTOO SESSION?
• It's best you get a good night's sleep and a full meal before getting a tattoo. We also recommend not getting drunk the night before as it thins out your blood and will make it harder for us to do your tattoo. If you just came back from the beach or have an upcoming beach trip, make sure you're not sunburnt or wont be swimming at least a month after getting the tattoo.
Please wear appropriate clothing or bring something that you can wear that has easy access to the placement of your tattoo!
I ALREADY SUBMITTED THE FORM, HOW WOULD I KNOW IF I GOT THE SLOT?
Please wait for a confirmation email within 24-48 hrs. :) You only need to send a deposit once your request for an appointment has been approved.
