Yes, but there are many factors that go in to it such as:
The shop minimum is $80. The cost of a tattoo depends on size, detail, and placement of the tattoo. We charge flat rate for most smaller designs and do hourly for larger tattoos. Keep in mind even small highly detailed designs can cost the same as a larger simple design. In that case, your best bet would be to come in and talk to one of our artist.
Deposits are non-refundable funds placed at the time of booking as a "good faith" commitment that you promise to show for all scheduled appointments. IT IS NOT AN EXTRA COST, rather, your deposit is included in the overall cost of your tattoo. Deposits are made in case you are unable to follow through with your committment, covering the artists time, product and lost wage. If you can't keep your scheduled appointment, please call within 48 hours to avoid needing a new deposit for your tattoo.
As stated above, please call within 48 hours of your scheduled appointment to avoid losing your deposit, this allows your artist time to fill that slot with another client who is also eager to get worked on. WE WILL HOLD YOUR DEPOSIT ON RESCHEDULING TWICE, upon the third rescheduling we will require a new deposit*.
*At artists discretion.
Deposits stand in as compensation for the artists lost time and wages as that slot could have been used for another client. This is an industry wide standard which may seem stern, but places high value on our time as freelance artists who (in an effort to be completely transparent) only earn wages when they are actually performing procedures. Missed appointments can adversely affect the lives of the artist, their families and children, especially if they have multiple “no-shows” in succession.
For the sake of simplification for multi-session works, a portion of your deposit remains until your LAST session. Your deposit will be divided into approximately even portions and applied to each session until your very last session, divided at the artists discretion.
When your deposit has been spent down to the last $50 it will no longer apply to your appointment but continue to hold your slot until your very last session.
Getting a tattoo is a very personal decision. This is a permanent piece of artwork on your body so, make sure that it is something that truly means something to you.
We love and appreciate when our clients come for walk ins! Your artist will work hard to design your tattoo just the way you want it, but due to the nature of this typically spontaneous interaction, to protect our artists time, payment is due up front. Our artists don't need practice, so, if you change your mind, the equivalent of a deposit will be held to cover the artists time, skill and products used. You will receive the designs drawn for you and we hope to see you again when you are ready!
Your total cost is determined by style, placement, size and detail. Overall cost of hourly sessions can be affected by how well you sit, by cooperating with your artist you can save some cash. We price tattoos accordingly and as closely to the actual cost as possible.
Please be aware that the total cost of your tattoo may be adjusted at the artists discretion if your tattoo ends up costing more or less than the estimated amount. We will always strive to do what is fair for everyone involved.
