FAQS

How old do I have to be to get a tattoo?

It is an offence to tattoo anyone under the age of 18. 

Do I need an appointment?

Yes. We very rarely have walk-in space, so an appointment is required. On a rare occasion where we can facilitate walk in's, it will be announced on our social media pages.

How do I book an appointment?

You can make enquiries for bookings via our Facebook Page, Instagram, email or by giving us a call on 01827 902113.

Do I need to book a consultation?

You're more than welcome to pop into the studio at any time to talk to the studio manager. However we do recommend booking a consultation. That way the artist can take time discussing ideas with you. We do understand that it may be difficult to get to the studio if you're far away so we will do our best to accommodate you via other means of communication.

How much will my tattoo cost?

We always try to give an accurate price at the time of booking but if having larger pieces, for example, a sleeve, this can be impossible to price and will require multiple sessions.

Do you do cover ups?

Yes we do! Four of our artists are accomplished in cover ups. We also do reworks, so if you'd like to breathe some life into an old tattoo, please contact us.

Do you require a deposit?

Yes. A £100 deposit is required for all day sittings, £50 for a 4 hour session or £30 for 1-3 hours. The deposit is required to hold your appointment and shows a commitment from yourself. Once a deposit has been paid and a booking has been made, your artist can start working on your design. It is then deducted from the total on the day of your appointment.

Does having a tattoo hurt?

Yes. Anyone that says it doesn't is telling fibs but it is tolerable which is why people always come back for more :)

What are your rates?

Hourly rates vary between artists and are dependant on experience. Junior Artist rates are £40 per hour and £200 a day. Seniors artists are £60-£65 per hour and £300-£330 for a day sitting. The minimum studio charge is £30.

Can I bring a friend?

Feel free to bring a friend. We do say a maximum of one due to space.

Will I see my design before?

Yes. Artists work in order of who's booked in. They aim to show you your design a few days before appointment. You can make any changes you to at this time.

What should I do before my tattoo appointment?

Have a good nights rest, have a good meal and refrain from drinking alcohol.

Should I bring anything?

Your artists will be all ready for you so just bring yourself. Tea and coffee is provided but feel free to bring your own drinks. Bringing some snacks is a good idea to keep up your energy levels. Some people like to download games to play on their phone to pass the time. If fortunate to look under 25, bring I.D. as it will be requested.

How can I pay?

We accept cash in the studio. Deposits can be made via paypal, bank transfer or in store.
