How much does a tattoo cost?
As every piece is custom made, price varies depending on the artist, sizing, positioning and the final design. We’re always happy to quote customers over the phone or via email or direct message through Facebook and Instagram. For larger pieces, we offer free, face-to-face consultation so our artists can create the perfect piece and determine appropriate pricing.

How do I book?
Do I have to do anything before or after my tattoo?
It is important that you do not drink alcohol the night before getting a tattoo. Alcohol is a blood thinner and will affect the tattoo as well as the healing process.
You need to make sure you take good care of your tattoo, especially during the healing process. We offer an aftercare pack for $10 which includes an antiseptic cream as well as an antibacterial soap.
It is important that you follow your tattoo artist’s care instructions. Each artist is different and recommendations for tattoo care can differ from one artist to another. As such, you should only follow the instructions that have been given to you by your artist or the tattoo shop your artist works in.
