-Regardless of the area...yes, it will hurt. Just be prepared for that and try to keep it in mind when choosing a location. Everyone's pain tolerance is different.
-Nope. It is against the law to tattoo anyone under 18 years old even if a parent signs off on it. #Sorrynotsorry
-Unfortunately, we do not. Strictly tattoos only.
-Pricing can vary widely. Typically, artists make up their own pricing, either by the hour or flat rate.
Our shop minimum is $100 so regardless of how small the tattoo is, thats where the pricing will start.
For smaller pieces (palm-sized or smaller), I charge a flat rate price. For larger pieces, I charge $150 an hour.
-Yes, however, I`m not as well versed in color as my mentor. I like to stick with watercolor and pops of color rather than fully saturated pieces
-Yes! I work on all skin tones and types. Despite each skin tone having its own unique set of rules and challenges, I have had success with my pale and darker-skinned clients!
-Any time of year where you can keep your tattoo completely covered is the most ideal time to get it. Avoid getting a tattoo in the summer at all costs. Swimming, tanning, and being exposed to the sun will ruin a tattoo quickly.
-I recommend using Aquaphor for the aftercare of my tattoos. It`s great for cracked skin and odorless! After the tattoo has finished peeling, you can switch to an odorless lotion if you`d prefer. During the healing process, you should use a fragrance-free soap like a dial or dove bar. Avoid body washes or shower gels as they can dry out your skin.
-We accept Cash, Card, and Cashapp here.
I prefer cash if you can manage!
Keep in mind Card transactions may be subject to a 3.5% processing fee.
-I naturally gravitate towards illustrative, dot-work, watercolor, etching, and black-work styles. I love to do floral and nature inspired tattoos.
- I do not tattoo any of these locations, especially hands or fingers.
It`s nothing personal but tattoos are a lifelong commitment. Trendy tattoos are exactly that, a trend.
More recently, our shop has collectively decided to no longer do finger tattoos.
-I strongly advise against it. We do not allow children inside the shop at all and we also I.D.
You`ll have to have someone take care of them outside of the shop during your appointment.
-Due to Covid-19, we are not allowing anyone but those getting tattooed to come back during the appointment.
Something to keep in mind is most tattoo artists prefer you to come without a group, unless they are also getting tattooed.
