A deposit is required in many tattoo parlors to schedule and hold your appointment. The deposit is applied to the cost of the tattoo on the day that it is completed unless there is a less than 72 hour reschedule or a no-show.

Once available appointment dates are sent, they will be held for 24 hours before offering to other clients looking to book.

The deposit can be paid here or in the shop. In the event of a less than 72 hour reschedule or no-show, the deposit is kept and non-refundable.
