Do you take walk-in's?
We do same day appointments. It is always best to call ahead and schedule an appointment.
How do I schedule an appointment?
Call the shop or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to talk to an artist about your tattoo idea! To make any appointment, we require a minimum of $100 left as a deposit.
What forms of payment do you take?
We accept cash, credit and debit (Visa, MasterCard, Discover). We do not accept checks.
What is your deposit policy?
Your deposit holds your appointment time open and acts as collateral for the time reserved for you. Once a deposit is left, the artist may begin drawing for your appointment. The deposit is NOT a fee, and does come off the final price of your tattoo. Deposits are non-refundable. A deposit may be transferred to another date 48 hours prior to your appointment. Your deposit will be lost if you fail to show up to your appointment, fail to reschedule within 48 hours of your appointment, show up to your appointment without proper identification, arrive significantly late to your appointment, decide you want an entirely different tattoo than what was agreed upon, decide not to get tattooed at all, or fail to inform your artist about certain skin and health conditions that would interfere with your tattoo and healing. Deposits cannot be transferred to another person.
What health or medical conditions should I be aware of before scheduling an appointment?
Your health, and the health of your tattoo are of the utmost importance to us. If you have any concerns, please discuss them with your artist, or a doctor before scheduling an appointment. This includes conditions such as diabetes, epilepsy, hepatitis, hemophilia, HIV-AIDS or any other communicable disease, heart condition, or if you are taking medicine which thins the blood. Further, any skin conditions (such as, but not limited to: acne, scarring (keloid), eczema, psoriasis, freckles, moles, or sunburn) that may interfere with your tattoo. These conditions do not mean you cannot get tattooed, but you will want to consult with either an artist or a doctor about the application, care, and healing of your tattoo; and you.
How do I decide what I want?
We have 1000's of pre-selected images to choose from here in our shop. Or, you can bring in ideas and create a custom piece of art with your tattooist. Any reference material you find online can be developed into something personal and unique.
Do you have gift certificates?
Yes, we sell gift certificates year round, available in any amount.
How old do I have to be to get a tattoo?
You must be 18, with proper identification, to get tattooed in Minnesota.
What do I wear for my appointment?
Masks are mandatory. Wear what is comfortable for you, and what allows the area you are getting tattooed to be accessible. We have privacy screens available for use during your tattoo.
Do you do cover-ups?
Yes, we do! Set up a consultation appointment with one of our artists. Come in with a broad range of ideas on what you'd ultimately like to cover your tattoo with, but keep in mind that your artist will need some degree of artistic freedom to successfully cover your old tattoo.
How do I care for my tattoo?
Check out our aftercare instructions here, and consult your artist or a physician with any questions or concerns.
How much will my tattoo cost?
Our shop minimum charge is $100. Your tattoo is a permanent piece of art, and you will get what you pay for. Pricing will depend on details, size, location, and time. It is difficult to give an estimate without having the tattoo drawn up by your artist.
Is this establishment licensed? Is everything sterile?
This establishment and all artists at this establishment are licensed by the Department of Health for the State of Minnesota. You can view our licenses in the shop, or online. All staff and artists also maintain yearly bloodborne pathogen education and certification.
Your safety and the life of your tattoo are of the utmost importance to us. This is dependent on our shop being safe and clean. This establishment uses needles that are sterile single-use, and are disposed of in proper sharps containers after your procedure. Any equipment is cleaned and sterilized before each client, and is monitored by monthly spore testing. Any equipment that can't be sterilized is covered with a disposable barrier, and changed for every client.
