Although you can get a tattoo any time of the year, your skin gets a lot more abuse during the summer with swimming, tanning and just being exposed to the elements more. Winter time is really the best season to get a tattoo.
Yes, while making appointments is encouraged to guarantee your spot, we do accept walk-Ins if someone is available. It is on a first come , first serve basis.
Getting a tattoo when your immune system isn't at 100% isn't a good idea. You're going to need your strength and your white blood cells to heal your tattoo, something your body won't be able to do if it's already doing battle against virus and bacteria. Not to mention the fact that it's very inconsiderate to bring your illness into the tattoo studio and risk passing the germs onto thers, particularly your artist.
This is all a matter of personal taste. You can get whatever you want, and whatever your artist is willing to do. You can choose a picture off the wall, or you can have them create a custom piece just for you. Your only limit is your own imagination. As far as where you should get it goes, just keep in mind what you do for work and the type of social circles you are in.
No. Im sorry we only accept cash. We are sorry for the inconvenience.
It is the NY state law, you must be 18 yrs old to get a tattoo . A parent can NOT sign for a minor. You must bring your NY state photo id with you, as we cannot tattoo you without proof.
For ear lobes their is no age. For all other piercings, it is NY state law, that any under person under the age of 18 must get a notarized form signed by their legal guardian. It must be notarized on our own Tormented Souls form, that you can pick up or download.
Piercings are done solely on a walk-in basis. Tattoos you must come to our shop to make an appointment. We do not take appointments over the phone. We require a 100$ non refundable deposit. The deposit will get deducted from your tattoo at the end of your final sitting.
It is impossible to quote a price without seeing a design. Many factors are involved in pricing out a tattoo, as far as detail and placement. Custom tattooing costs according to the time involved.
It is possible to be allergic to anything, however allergies to the colors is very rare. If you do have allergies, you might want to consult your doctor, for the proper tests and for an explanation.
The answer to this question is personal to the individual. There's a lot to consider including the scar's age and type, as well as ink pigment, so it's wise to book a consultation with one of our artists beforehand. If your artist doesnt think youll get the result youre looking for by tattooing over your scar, hell likely be able to come up with an amazing design that can incorporate the scar into the tattoo, disguising it instead.
Yes, tips are welcome and appreciated. Tips range anywhere from 15%-100%. A tip is nothing more than a compliment on a job well done.
Of course it's going to hurt a little bit, but it's not bad and it's always worth it.Everyones experience with getting a tattoo will be different.Different areas of the body will feel different to get worked on, with meatier parts of the body like thighs or calves tend to be more irritating than painful, according to many of our clients. The closer the skin sits to the bone, the more sensitive that area will be to get a tattoo. Long story short, the experience varies from person to person.
We use the same equipment (autoclave) that a hospital uses to sterilize our equipment. We also use disposable setups for each tattoo. Visit your tattoo artist to insure the instruments are individually wrapped and sterilized.
As long as you call the shop AT LEAST 48 hours in advance of your appointment, your deposit will remain until you decide to reschedule. If you give
the shop notice within 24 hours of your appointment or don't show up, you will loose your deposit.
Yes, we encourage you to bring in your own artwork or references and ideas to use, to draw you a custom tattoo! The more the better. We may need to rework personal drawings based on the drawing's "tattoo-ability".Some styles of artwork do not work well as a tattoo, but we use our years of experience to guide you with the selection of the artwork and style.
Eat a good meal within 2 hours of your tattoo appt. No alcohol 8 hours before your tattoo. Avoid caffeine and energy drinks the day of your tattoo. Happy, healthy people heal better. Getting tattooed when you are sick, post or pre-surgery or extraordinarily stressed out is not ideal. Furthermore, people with compromised immune systems (e.g. diabetes, Hepatitis, HIV) typically take longer to heal, and I require a doctor's authorization.
A consult is typically required to determine what imagery is necessary to adequately cover the old work. Be prepared to go at least 70-100% larger than the tattoo you want to cover. We can give tattoos new life, without covering it up.
Yes. One free touch-up is included within 3 months of the tattoo appt.
If you'd like an artist to go ahead and start working on a drawing for you, you first need to leave a $100 non-refundable deposit. (keep in mind the deposit comes off the price of the tattoo) None of the artists here draw for free, but the artist can adjust the drawing as many times as you want until you think it's perfect. We cannot e mail you the drawing and you may not take any pictures of your drawing until after the tattoo is complete.
Infections or allergic reactions are VERY RARE. More often than not, what you perceive as an infection, is actually an irritation. If you think there is an issue, please come speak to us. If there is an actual infection, you may have to speak with your physician.
we will not tattoo hate-based, blatantly obscene tattoos or genitals, and will only do limited work on feet and hands. We reserve the right to refuse service to anyone, for any reason.
No, unless it is a piece of jewelry purchased from us. If we don't know where the
jewelry came from, we cannot guarantee its quality.
The majority of our jewelry is hypoallergenic implant-grade stainless steel,although we do have a small stock of both yellow and white gold jewelry.
For stretched piercings, we stock plugs and eyelets in both Pyrex and stainless steel. We also carry a selection of organics, with materials such as wood,
stone, bone, and horn.
If you are looking for a particular piece of jewelry that we don't carry, we can
always special order it for you at no extra cost
No. We only accept government issued photo IDs as forms of identification.
There are no exceptions to this rule, and we cannot pierce or tattoo you if you
don't have proper identification. Passports, state ID cards, military ideas, and
driver's licenses are all acceptable forms of identification.
No. It is illegal and ill-advised to get tattooed while you are under the influence. It will not make your experience any better. It actually makes the process more difficult for you and the artist and raises the risk of complications.
Check out the portfolios on our website, or stop by the shop to look at the
portfolios here, which offer more extensive examples of artists' work. When
looking through portfolios, don't just pay attention to the subject matter of the
tattoos, but look at the way in which they execute the design. Each artist has his
or her own style, which comes through in their tattoos.
