Popping into the shop for a chat is always going to be the easiest way to book in with us. Depending on the type of tattoo you want we may be able to book you in there and then, while other tattoos may require a more in-depth discussion with one of our artists. In this situation, we would book you in for a free consultation with a particular artist and they can help you refine your ideas.
If you are travelling a long way and find coming in for a consultation difficult, please let us know and we’ll do our best to accommodate your query online but discussing your idea is always easier in person.
To make your actual booking, we require a non-refundable booking fee. This is usually around 20% of the tattoo and will be deducted from the final cost. We also have a 48-hour cancellation policy.
We have a £40 minimum (£50 for hands) and generally quote on size and detail. For larger more detailed pieces we work on an £80 an hour rate.
We are often able to give an indication of price over email, but for larger work, your artist will give you a quote during your consultation.
Waiting lists vary from artist to artist. As this is changing on a weekly basis we ask you to contact the shop for up-to-date waiting times. We always welcome walk-ins but this is completely dependent on artist availability on the day.
We politely ask that friends/partners are limited to 1 only during your session.
Our studio is small therefore your friend/partner must take care not to move around the space or lean on the tattoo chairs. This can be distracting for the artists at work. A member of the team will show them where to sit. There won’t always be room for that person to come into the tattoo area as certain tattoo placements mean space is even more limited.
Under 18’s, babies, dogs and bicycles are not permitted in the studio.
We do not recommend using numbing cream. This can make the skin more difficult to tattoo and can sometimes affect how it heals. There is often a greater level of pain experienced once it has worn off.
This all depends on the type of tattoo you are getting, how much time the artist has had to prepare and which artist you are booked in with. Most of the time we aren’t able to offer this service but if you are having a custom piece and request to see something in advance we will do our best depending on the circumstances.
We occasionally do cover-ups. However, we would need to see you for a consultation to determine if this is the best option for you.
Yes, they are! We use Dynamic, Intenze, Eternal, Fusion and Dermaglo which are all vegan-friendly.
Absolutely! We are a custom studio and our artists love to work with you to design a unique piece of artwork. This is the main purpose of a consultation. Once you know who you want to get tattooed by or what you want to get done, get in touch!
Your artist will explain how they would like you to look after your tattoo as this can vary piece by piece.
Generally, we recommend doing the following:
• Remove your dressing after 2-3 hours.
• Wash your tattoo with clean hands, using warm soapy water.
• Rinse the area with cold water and pat dry using a clean towel or kitchen roll.
• Normal showering is fine just do not soak your tattoo or rub with a towel.
• Apply a thin layer of cocoa butter or a tattoo-specific cream 2-3 times a day until your tattoo is healed.
• Do not allow your tattoo to dry out.
• Your tattoo will scab whilst it is healing, do not pick it or scratch it.
• No swimming or baths for at least two weeks, or once all the scabs have gone.
• Apply a high SPF sunblock for the life of your tattoo to prevent fading.
