HOW DO I GET STARTED?
I accept walk-ins on a “first come, first serve” basis. Larger pieces may require some time to put together, and I suggest contacting ahead of time in order to iron out any details before your visit. Feel free to contact me directly with questions regarding appointments.
HOW OLD DO YOU HAVE TO BE, AND CAN I GET PERMISSION?
Tattoos: The state of North Carolina requires an individual be at least 18 years of age to get a tattoo, no exceptions.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
There is a $60 minimum, $70 for below the wrist, below the ankles, above the neck, ribs, and stomach. Without seeing what exactly it is that we’re doing, it’s difficult to guess at a price, but a good rule of thumb is that the cost of the tattoo is decided by how much work it will be to do, so things like size, location, detail, color, etc all factor into what we charge.
Session rates are available at $60 per 30 minutes rounded up.
DOES IT HURT?
Yes, but obviously if it were unbearable we would not be in business. Think about all the people you see around you with tattoos on a regular basis; it is annoying, but once your done you’ll have something that you can enjoy for the rest of your life!
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO HEAL?
Tattoos generally take about two weeks to heal, during which time its on you to care for it properly. Piercings vary depending on what youre having done, but just contact us and one of our piercers would be happy to let you know.
HOW DO I PAY FOR THIS?
I accept cash or credit (visa or mastercard). Additionally fees may apply to credit card usage.
HOW DO I PREPARE?
I recommend that you eat well and are well hydrated when you come in to get work done. Generally speaking, passing out or getting sick is a result of your sugar levels dropping, so keeping that up is key. Additionally, although a drink may be ok, its best not to have any alcohol beforehand, as this will not only cause you to bleed more, but will also make our jobs more difficult. The only other recommendation is to stay calm. Everyone gets the butterflies before having work done, but try and remember that we’ve been working on people every day for decades; you’ll make it through this just fine, and working yourself up will only make something that should be exciting for you a frightening experience.
