HOW DO I BOOK AN APPOINTMENT/GET A QUOTE?
Bookings and quotes can be made by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, directly emailing the artists emails or by completing the booking form found on the website. Remember to provide a description of the design, reference photos, size, placement, preferred dates and artist. This enables us to process your request quicker.
HOW OLD DO I NEED TO BE?
You must be 18 years of age. A valid drivers license must be present on the day. No exceptions.
HOW MUCH DOES A TATTOO COST?
Cholo will have a minimum of $250 while the other artists will start at $150. The final price will be dependent on detail of the design, location on the body, size and artist chosen.
WHAT FORMS OF PAYMENT ARE ACCEPTED?
Cash please. However there are ATM’s in walking distance from the studio for you to withdraw cash.
WHAT IF I CAN’T MAKE THE APPOINTMENT?
If you’re unable to make your appointment or need to reschedule, please let us know at least 48 hours in advance. We’ll happily change accordingly. However if you cancel less than 48 hours before your appointment or no-show, your initial deposit will be forfeited and a new deposit will be required to confirm a new booking.
DOES IT HURT?
Yes! A little! But we promise to take good care of you.
HOW SHOULD I PREPARE FOR MY TATTOO?
We recommend that you have a bite to eat beforehand and stay hydrated. It’s ideal not to consume alcohol prior to or the night before your appointment as alcohol can increase bleeding.
Having the tattoo area ‘hair-free’ before the appointment would be appreciated.
DO YOU SELL GIFT VOUCHERS?
Yes! Currently you can only purchase gift vouchers in store, so come and pop in. We are in the process of making them available through the website as well.
HOW LONG DOES A TATTOO TAKE TO HEAL?
It takes up to two weeks for the tattoo to 'heal'. However it takes months for the skin to completely recover.
HOW DO I CARE FOR MY TATTOO?
Every studio has their own recommended care methods. Ours are:
Remove covering bandage when you get home from your appointment
Wash the tattoo with warm soapy water
Apply a layer of Bepanthen or Tattoo care cream
Do not cover - let the tattoo heal in the natural air (unless you are going to be outdoors)
Continue to wash and moisturise your tattoo 2-3 times or as required daily for approx two weeks
If your tattoo becomes itchy or scabby - do not itch! This is a normal part of the healing process
Avoid the sun, chlorine, salt water and soaking the tattoo for at least two weeks
