HOW MUCH WILL IT COST?
Each artist sets their own pricing and this must be discussed with them directly.
HOW LONG WILL THE TATTOO TAKE?
As with the cost of the tattoo, each tattoo artist tattoos as difference speeds. Please speak with your artist directly to determine expected length of the appointment.
WILL IT HURT? / WHAT IS THE LEAST PAINFUL PLACE TO GET MY TATTOO?
All tattoos are uncomfortable... That's just the way it is. Each person has different tolerances and varying areas on the body that are more or less painful than others.
Generally speaking, areas that are 'soft' or 'bony', where there is not a lot of muscle (top of the foot, ribs, inside of the arm, top of thigh, armpit, etc.) are the most tender places to be tattooed.
It's also very important to be open and honest with your artist during your tattoo. If you need a break, just ask! We are more than happy to pause and take a stretch break.
ARE APPOINTMENTS REQUIRED OR DO YOU ACCEPT WALK-IN CLIENTS?
At this time, we are an appointment only shop. If you would like to schedule an appointment and don't have a specific artist in mind, email our shop at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please include your name, email address, description of the tattoo you are wanting, size and budget. We will review your request and choose an artist to contact you back that best fits your needs.
ARE YOU STILL A TATTOO SCHOOL?
We are no longer a Tattoo School.
CAN I STILL GET TATTOOS AT STUDENT PRICES?
Nope. Our students have all graduated and are licensed artists. Each artist sets their own pricing, please contact them directly for rates.

We specialize in a wide range of tattoo styles. Please take a look at our artists pages for a sample portfolio of the work we each specialize in. If you have a specific style in mind and don't know who would be best for it, email us at email@example.com.
WHAT DO I DO AFTER I GET MY TATTOO? / HOW DO I HEAL MY TATTOO?

WHAT SHOULD I BRING TO MY APPOINTMENT? / HOW SHOULD I PREPARE FOR MY APPOINTMENT?
It's always good to wear comfy clothing, or bring a change of clothes that will easily expose the area you will be tattooed in. Bring a book, magazine, headphones/music, snacks, jacket.
Please also read through the Preservice information under the Preservice & Aftercare tab above.
HOW DO I BOOK AN APPOINTMENT?
It is best to contact the artist directly. At the bottom of each artists page will be a Contact Form that is sent to them directly. You can use that form, email them, or most artists accept messages through social media.
AM I SUPPOSED TO TIP MY ARTIST? IF SO, HOW MUCH?
Tipping is never required but is always very kind.
As for how much, it depends on what you want to give! If you're unsure, it's generally good to go with the same as you would tip at a restaurant, 20%. But anything extra given is always appreciated.
WHAT FORMS OF PAYMENT ARE ACCEPTED?
Cash is always best but most artists accept debit/credit cards, venmo, or sometimes paypal.
Please confirm with your artist prior to your appointment for their preferred payment method.
