FAQs

Q?

How much do tattoos cost?

This is a question we get the most and it’s not a cut and dry answer. Our artists work at an hourly rate and price each piece accordingly. Meeting with an artist in person for a consult and discussing your tattoo ideas is the best plan of action.

Depending on your tattoo design and location, the amount of discomfort can vary to some degree.

Some things you might want to bring along with you are bottled water and/or a sugar based drink. A small snack such as a granola bar or easy to eat fruit or vegetables are both good options.
