To book with a guest artist, please contact the artist directly.
How do I change my appointment?
If for whatever reason you need to change your appointment, please contact your artist ASAP. If you ask to change it any sooner than two days before your appointment, you may lose your deposit and need to pay another deposit before you can book a new appointment.
Do you do walk-ins?

WORKING WITH YOUR ARTIST
Will you tattoo my idea / design / picture I found on Google?
Each artist has their own unique style and you should try to work with an artist whose work fits with your concept. Reference images are great for helping your artist design a custom tattoo that suits you, but we can’t directly copy other people’s work.
How do I make changes to the design I’ve approved?
Last minute changes to designs can interrupt the day’s scheduled appointments. If you want to make changes to your design, let your artist know ASAP. Depending on the scope of the changes, additional fees could apply.
What do I do for aftercare?
- Wear your bandage for at least 6 hours.
- Once the bandage is removed, gently hand-wash your tattoo with warm water and antibacterial soap.
- Keep the tattoo clean and dry — don’t soak it in the tub or submerge it in water for two weeks.
- Avoid direct sun for the first two weeks.
- Once the tattoo is healing, you can use an unscented white lotion. We recommend the products in our shop:
