We want you to be informed on everything
prior to booking.
To protect our artists time and to make sure that all clients are treated equally, here are our :
A NON-REFUNDABLE booking fee is required to book your appointment (but don't worry, the booking fee is applied to your over all amount due as long as you keep your appointment). If for any reason we feel it is unsafe or we are unable to tattoo a client due to information listed in the policies or preparation, your deposit will not be returned. So why do we require a booking fee on all appointments? Here is the scoop. All of our artists aren't paid hourly, and they book weeks in advance. When you book an appointment, we require this booking fee to make sure that you are as serious about your time slot as your artist is. if for any reason it needs to be canceled or rescheduled, we want to make sure that our artists are compensated for their lost time or missed appointment slot. Happy artists or technicians mean better services, so please, if you have any questions please contact us prior to booking. CLICK HERE to view preparation information page.
Here are our polices that apply to standard booking protocol
Prior to booking, all policies and procedure information MUST be reviewed. When you book, you will be asked if you agree to our terms and conditions and cancellation policy. When you check that, you are agreeing to all these policies, so please make sure you read them in their entirety.
Yearly touch-up appointments must be booked with the artist who did the original work.
If you wish to have another artist do a touch-up, you will book at their new client pricing.
If you have any previous permanent cosmetics, you must contact the shop prior to booking,
as not all previous work can be covered or tattooed over. If you come in with previous work that was not approved and it cannot be touched up or fixed, your booking fee will NOT be returned.
Please keep in mind these are tattoos. Tattooing the skin very frequently will result in poor results, so when booking touch-ups, please wait until you are in dire need. Spacing your appointments out as much as possible will lead to better results.
BOOKING FEES or sometimes referred to as a "deposit", are only valid on the date and time and the service that it is booked.
ALL BOOKING FEES ARE NON-REFUNDABLE AND NON -TRANSFERRABLE
We understand that life happens and that things come up, but please be mindful of these policies.
ALL RESCHEDULING MUST BE DONE THROUGH THE SHOP PHONE
PLEASE NOTE OUR SHOP HOURS, IF THERE IS NO ANSWER, PLEASE LEAVE A VOICEMAIL.
If you are more than 15 minutes late for your appointment, your booking fee will be forfeited, and you will be asked to re-book. Please keep traffic/construction/weather in mind when traveling. We book clients back-to-back, and we have this policy to ensure the rest of our clients run on time.
If you do not show up to your appointment without contacting the shop prior, or reschedule within two weeks of your appointment time, your deposit is forfeited, and you will incur a cancellation fee of an additional $50.
If your 8 week touch-up appointment is included with the cost of your initial appointment, it must be scheduled within 6-12 weeks & will be booked at the time of your initial session.
If you cancel/reschedule your appointment and it falls outside of the allotted time frame, you will be required to book online as an "additional touch-up" with an additional cost, varying in cost depending on the artist. With limited appointment availability, this helps protect the time of each artist.
If consistent rescheduling occurs, you may be asked to pre-pay the full cost of the appointment.
