Consultation and Design Process

To set up a consultation with one of our tattooers, visit our artist pages using the site menu.  When you come to the studio for your consultation, bring your deposit as well as any reference photos you would like to show and discuss. DEPOSITS ARE NON-REFUNDABLE.

You will be given 1–3 tattoo appointments the day you come to the studio to pay your deposit and discuss your ideas, reference materials, etc. Multiple appointments ensures all clients with large pieces will not have to wait months between sessions.

Any changes to the tattoo design may result in a change to the agreed price. Design preparation takes time, and changes to your design should be avoided after your appointment has been set.

In the 24 hours leading up to your scheduled 1st appointment we will finalize your design. You will get to see your tattoo the day of your appointment. Sometimes, the artist may need to finalize details with you in person, so expect that there could be some drawing time on the day of your 1st appointment if your artist has any questions. If you approve the design we will get started tattooing at your 1st appointment.

If you are unsatisfied with the design, changes can be made. However, if they take longer than 30–45 minutes, your 1st appointment will become a collaborative drawing day and you will not start your tattoo until your 2nd scheduled appointment.

The design is considered property of the artist. We will not do any design approval via text message or email. If you are unhappy with the design, we will work with you to make the needed changes and make sure you love it.
