Frequently Asked Questions
Does it hurt?
Most people say it’s more irritating than painful. Then again, some people wail like cats in heat.
How do you sterilize your equipment?
We sterilize our equipment with an autoclave which is monitored weekly by an independent lab. All equipment is individually bagged prior to sterilization and opened immediately prior to the tattoo. All ink is placed in single service caps and disposed of after each tattoo.
Can you fix this or cover it up?
I don’t know, can you hold it closer to the screen? We will be happy to consult with you at our shop. We cannot do consultations over the phone.
Who is going to do my tattoo?
You are more than welcome to check out everyone’s portfolio and request a specific artist, or we will set you up with one of our talented staff.
Can I bring a friend?
Absolutely, as long as they do not impede the process necessary for you to get a safe and good tattoo.
Can I get it smaller?
Maybe – however, due to the nature of tattooing, designs have a tendency to spread out over time. Exposure to excessive sun and the area of the body can accelerate this process.
What are your hours?
We are typically open from 12 noon to 12 midnight, Monday through Saturday, and 1 to 10pm on Sunday. We sometimes change these hours due to scheduling difficulties, special events, or artist’s whims.
Do you tattoo feet?
Yes, though we discourage it due to the fact that tattoos age terribly on feet, usually hurt more, and are more prone to infection due to feet typically being in a damp moist environment, like your shoes.
Do you tattoo Minors?
Absolutely not. We also actually look at the picture on your ID as well, so don’t bring your grandma’s old driver’s license.
