QUESTIONS & ANSWERS
IM NEW TO THIS, HOW DO I GET STARTED?
Whether this will be your one and only or just the beginning of your life long journey of collecting tattoos, we welcome you. Check out our artists work online or come on down to the shop and take a look at our portfolios and let us know about your ideas. Depending on the complexity of your ideas you might need a consultation. For your convenience you can now book a consultation directly from our website. If you feel your ideas won’t require a consultation, please contact us and let us know. This way we can book your appointment directly. However, please keep in mind that we require a cash deposit when booking an appointment; we suggest coming down to the shop to get on the books. Once we know where to begin, we can pair you with the artist who will best suit the style and scope of your tattoo. No matter what the tattoo is we treat each one respectfully and just as important as the last. .
DO I NEED A CONSULTATION, WHAT SHOULD I BRING?
No tattoo is the same and not all tattoos require a preliminary consultation. We don’t require consultations for walk ins or for smaller, more simple designs. There is no universal way to determine whether or not you need one so if you aren’t sure, give us a call before booking yours. We always appreciate you collecting any relevant photo reference prior to your consultation as that and any other pertinent information will always expedite the creative process of making your tattoo.
Consultations are free, however we do require a $100 non refundable cash deposit to book tattoo time. Typically tattoo appointments are booked the same day of your consultation. Deposits are transferable with a 48 hour notice to reschedule .
DO YOU TAKE WALK-INS?
Yes, absolutely! We recommend making an appointment if there is a specific time you were hoping for, otherwise we accept walk-ins on a first come first serve basis.
DO YOU TATTOO MINORS?
We are an 18yr and older establishment however state law allows for minors 16 years old and older with parental/guardian permission. We work with minors on a strictly discretionary basis. Both parents must prove content when applicable.
"Body Artists. Colo. Rev. Stat. § 25-4-2101 to 2103
Tattooing and Body Piercing. Prohibits anyone from performing a body art procedure on a minor unless the artist has received express consent from the minor's parent or guardian."
HOW MUCH WILL MY TATTOO COST?
Tattoos come in every shape and size imaginable and none are the same as the next, nor do they cost the same. We understand tattoos can be expensive and strive to meet the budget needs of all our clients. Our shop minimum is $100, and a fairly wide spectrum of smaller designs can fall under this category. Often times we will agree on a flat rate with our clients when the tattoo is something we can finish in a single session. We have a shop rate of $150 per hour which provides a general idea for those planning on those larger pieces. These larger bodies of work are based on how involved they are as far as size, placement, complexity and detail. Full sleeves, torsos, legs and back pieces have become more and more popular these days and can take multiple sessions to finish.
WHAT IS YOUR PREFERRED METHOD OF PAYMENT?
We are a cash only establishment, however some individual artist accept alternative methods of payment such as credit card, Venmo etc. Please speak with
HOW CAN I PREPARE FOR MY APPOINTMENT?
Your time with us is important, to maximize this time its necessary that we both show up fresh and ready. Our aim is your comfort and focus, and our ability to work as efficiently as possible. Please make sure you have a good nights rest the night before. Please refrain from drinking alcohol the night before, as it tends to thin your blood and impair our ability to work effectively. Eat a healthy breakfast or snack before hand or bring something along with you. You’re welcome to bring in some headphones or reading material or anything that will help you focus and relax. You can invite a friend for emotional support but please limit guests to one person. We would appreciate it if you could arrive 5-10 minutes beforehand to allow time to sign in and get settled.
