FAQ

FAQ

Do you take walk-ins?

Normally no, unless one of our artists has a last minute cancellation. Just take your chances and call the shop if you’d like to try for a walk-in.

Do I need an appointment?

Yes, due to extremely high demand our artists typically book out several months in advance. It’s best to call the shop to see when the artist of your choice has availability. Periodically we “close” our books so that we don’t book out to far. You may be asked to call back in a month or two to schedule a consultation.

How do I pick an artist?

Look at their portfolio for style and content. If you’re drawn to a specific artist’s work you can call the shop or email the artist to check availability and see if your project fits with that tattooers particular style.

How do I schedule a consultation appointment?

You can either call the shop or fill out the consultation request form here on the website. There is no charge for a consultation.

Do you tattoo anyone under 18?

No, California state law says the minimum age for someone to be tattooed is 18.

Cost?

The cost of your tattoo depends on skin type, size, placement, and color vs. black and gray. For larger pieces we work by the hour. For smaller tattoos we will quote you a price up front. Our minimum charge is $150. We take a deposit to book an appointment. The amount of the deposit depends on the tattoo you’re getting. The deposit is applied to your tattoo time on the last appointment when your tattoo is completed. We take cash, credit and debit but cash is always preferred.

Hours?

All of our artists work by appointment, so our hours may vary slightly. Our general hours are Tues - Friday 12pm - 8pm and Saturdays from 10am - 6pm.
