Will a tattooist work with me on a design?

Are artist will be happy to help with a design if you want them to. Do not be afraid to voice your ideas. However, you should listen to the artist's suggestions. This is what they do for a living and they should have a good idea of what works and what does not.

How long does a tattoo take?

Anywhere from 30 minutes to hours.

Can you quote me a price over the phone or over email?

It usually is impossible for us to give an accurate quote without speaking to you directly and seeing the design, where you want your tattoo and how much time will be involved. You can send pictures, drawings, or links to images with the size and location of the desired tattoo to the artist for general ideas and quotes. For an accurate quote you still need to come into the shop.

Can I request a custom design?

Absolutely most anything can be done. Please contact one of our artist.

How long can I expect the colors to last?

A long time if done correctly. If you follow our aftercare instructions and protect it from the sun, your tattoo will last a long time.

Yes as long as you go to a reputable artist that is following all recommended safety precautions

Can I drink alcohol before or during my tattoo?

Performing tattooing on anyone impaired by drugs or alcohol is illegal. Drinking alcohol will also thin your blood. Causing you to bleed more during your tattoo, this will affect the quality of the finished tattoo.

How old must I be to receive a tattoo?

In the state of Texas you must be 18 years old to receive a tattoo. It is illegal to tattoo a minor with or without parental consent. Any one tattooing a minor is breaking the law.

How much does a tattoo cost?

The minimum cost is $60.00; this is the cost for us to set up a sterile tattoo environment. The cost of a tattoo differs according to size, location and complexity. It is the decision of each artist to determine the price. For custom work we usually require a nonrefundable drawing deposit as well.

Should I tip my tattoo artist?

To tip an artist shows that you thought the artwork you received was well worth what was charged and you were happy enough to add a little. A tip should be based on how much you can afford. Sometime just a Thank you makes our day!
