Estimates are general estimates
Exact prices are determined once the tattoo is complete. Adjustments made to the final art, skin type and client breaks needed all factor into the total price.
If you have gotten a sunburn anytime in the 2 weeks prior to your appointment, you will need to reschedule.
We accept cash or credit/debt cards (cards will incur a convenience fee).
Cover-ups require 2-3 times more work by the artist and will take more time and be more expensive than a normal tattoo.
