FAQ

Hopefully, most of your questions have been answered around the website already but there are always going to be a few things which need clearing up. This list is a ‘work in progress’ so please let us know if you have any other questions.

  • How much does a tattoo cost?
    Obviously, this is a hard one to answer without discussing your ideas further. Our hourly rate is £80 but we can discuss day rates for longer sessions and may have offers available for certain days & times. We can only give you a rough idea of how much a tattoo is going to cost though as there are quite a few factors which may increase the time it takes to apply the tattoo to your skin. Sometimes the skin can be tougher than normal, it may bleed or sweat more than expected or you may find that you cannot sit for very long on that particular day. You will be surprised at how the things you eat and drink, the amount of stress you’re under, how much sleep you’ve had and whether you are ill can actually effect how well your skin takes in the ink and heals afterwards! Also, if you have been given a guide price or an offer but the specifications of the tattoo changes, please understand that this may mean it will cost more. Please listen to your artist and ask questions if you are unsure.
  • I want a sleeve, how long will it take?
    Once again, this is a hard question to answer, do you want black and grey which takes less time than colour, do you want a highly detailed design or will it be mostly background shading with a few focus points? On average, a full sleeve will take around 4 days of 6 hours to complete, it will take at least 2 and could, in-fact, go up to as many as 10 days for certain styles! Skin can only take ink in at a certain speed, just try colouring in your whole arm with a sharpie pen to fully understand how big an area we are talking about!
  • Do you have gift cards?
    Of course we do! They can be made out for any amount and the gift card acts as proof of payment, the tattoo cannot be booked in or carried out without the gift card being present.
  • Are deposits refundable?
    Deposits are non-refundable. You need to take booking a tattoo seriously.
  • I’m not 18 yet, can I have a tattoo?
    We do not tattoo anyone under the age of 18 so please do not ask, this is the law and has been enforced for your own benefit. If you look under 25 you will be required to provide identification to prove your age so if you’re young or are lucky enough to look younger than you are, please remember to bring some in or we will be unable to carry out your tattoo and you will lose your deposit.
  • I printed this design off Google, will you copy it?
    No! We are a custom studio and draw all designs from scratch, exceptions are made for generic logos or symbols.
  • Why do I need to eat sugary things before a tattoo?
    Tattoos come with a certain amount of pain and discomfort, this puts your body in a state of fight or flight. This uses up a lot of energy. Without a good supply of sugar available in your body for this response, you will start to feel faint and shaky… In extreme cases this can lead to passing out, fits and vomiting! So, to be on the safe side, eat and drink as much as you can – it will make you feel 100% better than if you don’t!
  • Can I come in on a Sunday?
    Sunday appointments may be available but you need to discuss this with your artist.
  • Can I come in outside your opening times?
    Out of hour appointments may be available but you need to discuss this with your artist.
