Frequently Asked Questions

Does it Hurt?

The answer is yes. Having needles pierce your skin hurts. The real question is 'How much does it hurt, and can I handle it?' It's not nearly as bad as what you would imagine. The pain comes from the cluster of needles on the tattooing machine piercing your skin rapidly. This sensation, however, doesn't feel like the pain of an injection - it's more of a constant vibration. You will be amazed at how quickly your body releases endorphins, which dulls the pain significantly. The pain will vary depending where on your body you get tattooed. Skin right above bones tend to be more painful than other areas. In addition, certain types of needles seem to hurt more than others.

How much does it cost?

The shop hourly rate is $125. The shop minimum is $125. Depending on the size and complexity of your tattoo you can expect the price to vary accordingly. The consultation for your tattoo is free. Once we have discussed the general idea, size and location of the tattoo, you will be provided with a rough estimate of time and cost. A deposit will be required to set your apoointment date and time. The deposit amount will be applied to the final cost of your tattoo. Deposits are non-refundable. If you need to reschedule your appointment please notify the shop at least 48 hours in advance or your deposit may be forfeited.

Do you perform tattoo removal?
We do not perform tattoo (lazer) removal here at our shop. We recommend a licensed dermatology, oconcology or plastic sugery clinic. Lazer removal is relatively affordable and very effective for significantly fading existing tattoos if not removing them altogether. We normally recommend lazer removal for clients who's existing tattoo is too dark to be covered by a new tattoo.
