What is a tattoo consultation?

Consultations allow the artist to assist you in planning your design through understanding the expectations you have for the final outcome of your tattoo. We can do our best to conveniently via phone or email, but many times a face to face consultation may be recommended prior to scheduling a tattoo appointment. Consultations are FREE and allow you to work directly with an artist. 

When can I see the design?

If there is anything specific that you would like to incorporate into your design please discuss this with the artist during your consultation or prior to reserving your appointment date. Your design will be ready for you to view on the day of your appointment unless an earlier review date is set. If there are any small changes you would like to make to the design these can be made on the day of your appointment.  Artists spend a lot of time drawing and working with the design for each tattoo, if lack of communication or information from the client causes the need to redraw or create a new design completely a re-design fee will be incurred.



How do I prepare for a tattoo?

  • Do NOT consume alcoholic beverages for a minimum of 24 hours prior to receiving a tattoo.
  • Wear comfortable clothing that allows easy access to the area to be tattooed (tattoo ink may stain clothing, please wear clothing that you do not mind getting ruined). 
  • Eat a meal beforehand (the tattoo process can deplete the your body's energy quickly eating before will allow for a more comfortable experience). 
  • Arrive well rested and on time.​
  • If a long session is planned bring a small snack


Are Tattoos Safe?
The tattoo procedure is much like a medical procedure, it involves close contact of blood or bodily fluid. In which case there are always risks of blood borne pathogens that can be transmitted through contaminated equipment. Our team has undergone blood borne pathogens certification training annually through an OSHA compliant course to properly limit risks and prevent exposure. 
We use ONLY pre-packaged, pre-sterilized, single use needles and single use tubes. 
New needles, tattoo tubes and new ink caps are used during every tattoo procedure and are properly disposed of immediately after never ever recycled or reused. Tattoo stations are disinfected after each client with EPA registered (OSHA compliant) liquid sterilization method. Even with all of the precautionary measures taken, you are still at risk for infection please make sure to follow proper 
Tattoo Aftercare Instructions.
