Questions

Aftercare Instructions

How do I get an appointment

Use the Booking button or go to our Contact page to fill out the inquiry form. Please note that submitting an inquiry allows us to get a better idea of your concept, but does not guarantee that we will be able to accommodate the request. If we are able to take on your project you will be contacted within seven days to set up a free phone consultation.

Do you take walk-ins

We are primarily an appointment based shop. We want to make sure we have enough time and preparation for your project. However, if your tattoo is simple enough, we should be able to accommodate you as walk-in.

What is the wait time for an appointment

It can be a couple of days or up to six months. It just depends on the artist you are working with and the size of your project.

Do you do small tattoos

Yes, we can accommodate small and large scale tattoos. The shop minimum is $80.

8

How much do you charge

The price varies greatly depending on the artist, as well as the size and concept of the project. The standard hourly rate in Atlanta is $150 an hour. We have artists at this rate and higher. We also run specials from time to time. 

9

Are touch-ups free

In most cases. However, there are a few specific areas of the body as well as style requests that are not guaranteed, and therefore subject to full price. Another situation that would void a free touch up is if proper aftercare was not followed.

10

Does your shop do white ink only tattoos

Yes. However, this type of tattoo will not stand the test of time. Therefore, they are not guaranteed and touch-ups will be at full price. 

11

Does your shop do glow-in-the-dark tattoos

No.

13

Does your shop use numbing cream

We typically do not recommend the use of numbing agents, as it may affect the quality of the tattoo. However, it is acceptable in certain cases. Please discuss numbing agents with your artist before your appointment date. If you are cleared to use a numbing agent, please inform your artist that you have applied it before they begin your session. 

14

Does your shop pierce

Not at this time.

15

Can minors get tattooed at your shop

Absolutely not. By Georgia law, it is illegal to tattoo anyone under the age of 18 regardless of parental consent.
