As a walk-in tattoo studio, we understand that the very nature of our daily routine must change in response to the pandemic for the safety of our clients and crew. So bear with us as we fine tune some new processes!
We fully intend to return our company to its previous mode of operations at the proper and responsible time. In the meantime, we're calling this "Phase 1". Basically, rather than lining up outside, your spot in our "line" will be done via *EMAIL. No lines will be allowed during Phase 1
Please keep in mind that you must wear a mask that covers your nose and mouth the entire time you are in the shop. Also, due to capacity restrictions, you will not be allowed to bring a guest.

Absolutely. All needles, pigments, gloves, barrier films, etc. are discarded after use. Machines and clipcords are bagged while tubes are cleaned and autoclaved after every use. If you have any questions about the sterilization process, we would be happy to answer them. Our goal is to make sure that you are completely comfortable with the process.
Make sure you've had something to eat and be well rested. Other than that, we will just need a valid state issued photo ID and try to wear clothing that is comfortable and you don't mind getting ink on. DO NOT drink alcohol or take non-prescription drugs before getting tattooed. Avoid sun exposure, especially in the summer. We DO NOT tattoo sun burnt skin or skin that has had too much sun.
Being as we are a single session studio, we charge by piece. Factors include color, detail, size, etc. We only price in person.
