Q: How much will my tattoo cost?
A: The price depends on the size, area of the body, intricacy or detail, and amount of shading or color involved. Since all of our tattoos are drawn individually for the client, we aren't able to estimate prices before a design is drawn out. Our shop minimum is $60, and our standard rate is $100/ hr. Generally we prefer to quote a price for the entire tattoo or by session rather than price it hourly.
Q: I was at this other shop and the guy said he would do it cheaper. Why is the price different?
A: As every artist is different, no two artists will do the tattoo in exactly the same way. Another artist might be planning a much more simplified version of the tattoo. If you are looking for the cheapest price, there are other tattoo shops that will cut corners and give you a cheaper price than we may, but if you are looking to get the best possible tattoo, then we would love to work with you. As the saying goes "Cheap work is Not Good, and Good work is Not Cheap.”
Q: How is the equipment sterilized or kept clean?
A: Equipment for Tattooing & Piercing is sterilized through the use of an Autoclave which uses heat, steam and pressure to sterilize. Our Autoclaves are spore tested and monitored. All needles are single use.
