Do You Do Walk-In Tattoos
Yes! We do walk-in tattoos everyday. Due to Covid, it is best to text the shop the day you want to come in. First Text First Served.
Do you have a shop minimum?
The shop minimum is $60 per tattoo. Tattoos are priced out by the piece, not hourly.
Can I get a quote for my tattoo over email?
Although we would be happy to start talking about your tattoo over email, we don’t give quotes over email because there is a chance for miscommunication. The best thing to do is come in and talk to us in person so we can really understand what you would like to get. Let the artist know if you’re trying to stay in a certain price range, and we’ll do our best to work with your budget.
What is the aftercare for a tattoo?
- Treat your tattoo like a fresh wound, do not expose to the elements.
- In 24 hours remove the bandage.
- Gently clean the tattoo only with your clean hands and liquid hand soap.
- Rinse with water hitting above the tattoo. Dab dry with a clean paper towel.
- Clean 3 times a day until it’s completely healed.
- After cleaning, for the first 2 days, apply a dimes worth of A & D ointment.
- On the 3rd day start applying a white lotion until it’s completely healed.
- Don’t scrub, itch, pick scabs, use lotions/soaps with scents or dyes.
- Don’t soak or swim in water or the sun until it is completely healed.
- If you have any questions, please feel free to call the shop!
