How old do you need to be to get a tattoo?
Anyone looking to have a tattoo needs to be 18 years old or over and don't be offended if we ask you for ID, you just have good genes.
I'm pregnant / breastfeeding, can I still get my tattoo done?
We're unable to tattoo anyone who is pregnant or breastfeeding.
We have a lot of people asking for cancellations. Unfortunately we’re unable to contact customers individually, if we were to ring each person on a list in order, we could end up ringing 10-20 people before we found someone who was able to make it. So to keep it fair, customers who are already booked in the diary get priority for cancellations and all cancellations are posted on our social media channels. We ask that people who would like the appointments posted, email us directly as it’s the best way for us to keep track of everyone’s appointments (Username123 might not be your real name).
Can you contact me about a cancellation?
I have a medical condition / am on certain medication
If you have any of the following conditions / are on any particular medications, please let us know or contact your health professional before booking your appointment for advice:
Diabetes / Epilepsy / T.B. / Hepatitis / HIV or AIDS / Hemophilia / Latex allergy / Heart condition / Eczema or Psoriasis / Herpes / Prone to fainting / Infections / Asthma / Blood thinners
I want a tattoo but don't really know what I want
It's important to know what you want your tattoo to be before you get tattooed, after all, this is going to be permanently on your skin. We recommend having a good idea and perhaps having a chat to one of our artists before you book, to discuss what it is you're after. You can do this by popping in, emailing or simply giving us a call. We love working in all kinds of styles, or are happy to design something in a style of our own, just let us know what it is you're looking to have.
When will I see my design?
Every artist works differently, but as a rule (simply due to how busy we can get), we tend not to send through final designs until a day or two before your appointment. Another reason for this is, if your appointment is a little while off, we know minds can change. When you come in you could have a clear idea of exactly what you're after, however, after a chat with friends or a quick browse on instagram, you may see something that you prefer. This is all fine and as long as we're given at least 48 hours notice, designs can be changed easily.
I can't make my appointment any more
No problem, we understand that life gets in the way and sometimes we just aren't able to make our appointments. If you're booked in but can no longer make your appointment just let us know within 48 hours of your booking and we can either reschedule or refund your deposit in full. However, any cancellations made after the 48 hour mark, your deposit cannot be returned to you.
I'm really nervous about getting tattooed
We know it can be daunting getting a tattoo, whether it's your first time, second or you're a tattoo veteran, we just want to put you at ease. All our artists have a lot experience in the industry and have tattoo'd many a person, you're in safe hands. If you want to chat to an artist before you book an appointment, feel free to pop in or drop us an email and we'll do our best to calm those pre-appointment nerves.
Does it hurt?
N...Yeah. We can't lie to you, it does hurt a bit. Some people feel it more than others, depending on your pain threshold.
How long will my tattoo take/cost to do?
This will depend entirely on what you're having and where you're having it. Best bet is to get in touch with us, let us know what you're thinking, from there we can tell you roughly how long it will take and cost.
I had a tattoo done by someone else and I don't like it anymore. Can you cover it?
We regularly deal with cover ups. As a general rule we advise people to have some laser removal before coming in for your cover up tattoo. Get in touch with us and either send over some photos or pop in to let us know what it is you're looking to cover up and with what and we can go from there.
I'm going to be late for my appointment, will you wait for me?
Different artists have different rules regarding late appointments. As a general rule, if you are 15 minutes or more, late to your appointment, it will either be time taken off of your appointment (meaning you will finish at the same time and won't be tattooed for as long) OR your appointment could be cancelled entirely and you will lose your deposit. If you find yourself running late for your appointment, please let us know as soon as possible so we can plan accordingly as it affects other customers who may be booked in after you.
How do I confirm my tattoo appointment?
Everyone who books an appointment with one of our artists gets a date, a time and a slot for how many hours they will be tattooed. For your appointment to be booked, we require a deposit, please speak to your artist or our receptionist for your deposit amount to be calculated depending on your booking length.
