Tattooing for the well informed
18. No exceptions. It is against California State Law to tattoo a minor even with parental consent. Not only do you need to be 18, but you need to prove it. Please remember to bring a valid state or federal id.
Once you’ve selected your preferred artist you can make an appointment by stopping in the shop, calling us directly or filling out the contact form with the details of your tattoo along with reference photos and preferred dates.
We have a shop minimum of $100. From there tattoo prices vary depending on artist, detail, size and placement. For a quote please submit a contact form or schedule a consultation (they’re free!).
We offer complimentary touch-ups up to 3 months after your initial tattoo appointment. Hand tattoos and foot tattoos do not apply. If your hand or foot tattoo needs a touch-up there will be a charge.
Sometimes! Certain areas on the body are more sensitive than others. The larger the tattoo the more likely it is to be uncomfortable. Smaller tattoos are usually pretty quick and easy. Keep in mind everyone has a different tolerance for pain. It’s more like a bittersweet burn, you can handle it..
Each tattoo is treated a little differently and your artist will go through the proper after care directions with you during your session. We recommend 3 products only: antibacterial unscented Dial soap, Aquaphor, and unscented Lubriderm lotion. They are all available for purchase at the shop. For the most part – keep it clean and don’t pick at it. No pools, jacuzzi’s, baths or ocean for 2 weeks after you get tattooed. Plan accordingly!
Yes. Every appointment made requires a non-refundable and non-transferable deposit. The amount of the deposit is based on the length of your appointment and the artist. It will then be deducted from the amount of your final session.
