Please do not come into the shop drunk or on drugs, you will be asked to leave.
Please do not come into the shop sick, we will reschedule you.
Please do not bring your children, we are not a daycare, nor is the tattoo shop a place for children to run around.
Please do not haggle, it is insulting and not a good way to start getting a tattoo. We like to get paid what we are worth.
To haggle is to say that you do not respect our industry or our time and effort to bring you a quality tattoo. We often give deals to clients that have developed an excellent client artist relationship.
Be respectful. We have worked hard to get where we are and do what we do, so show respect.
Client is sent home with verbal and written aftercare instructions. Please follow them thoroughly to ensure proper healing of the tattoo.
