  1. valid, non-expired I.D. for the legal guardian
  2. valid, non-expired I.D. for the minor
  3. birth certificate of the minor with legal guardian’s name (name must match the I.D.)
  4. verbal and written consent form from the guardian for the minor (we provide the consent form at the time of the body art procedure)

What Should I Bring The Day Of My Tattoo Appointment?

  • Driver’s license
  • Something to drink
  • Something to munch on
  • Well-hydrated body with H2O

Can I bring friends/family/children the day of my tattoo appointment?

Friends and family are welcome, however, space in the salon and parlor is limited and regulated for the health and safety of clients and artists. Visitors will need to stay in the area where the procedure is being done. Children must be supervised.

How Long Should I Leave The Saniderm Wrap On My New Tattoo?

4-7 days

What If My Saniderm Wrap Comes Off On It’s Own Before The Recommended Leave On Time?

That’s ok if it comes off on it’s own!  Everyone’s body is different, our daily activities are different and the way our bodies heal are different.  If the wrap comes off before the 4-7 day mark, switch on over to Aquaphor until fully healed, and then unscented lotion. OR if you are using the Tattoo Goo product line, use the aftercare salve until fully healed and then switch to the aftercare lotion.

Do You Do Coverups?

Yes we do!

Do You Do Touchups On Existing Tattoos?

Yes we do!  If we did the tattoo, then there is only a small fee (unless if it is in your first 6-month free period).  If we did not do the tattoo, then the touchup is at the full price of the technician’s hourly rate.

Do You Do White Ink Tattoos?

Yes, we do white ink tattoos.  Although we use the highest quality tattoo ink, we cannot guarantee that you will be an ideal candidate for white ink.  Not everyone holds white as well as others, so trying a small part on your body first, or highlighting an existing tattoo to see if you are an ideal candidate is a good idea 🙂

Do You Do Blacklight UV Tattoos?

Yes, we do blacklight UV tattoos.  With blacklight, we cannot guarantee that you will be an ideal candidate for them.  Not everyone holds blacklight UV ink well, so trying a small part on your body first, or accenting an existing tattoo to see if you are an ideal candidate is a good idea 🙂

What Makes Blacklight UV Tattoos Glow?

Phosphorus is what makes blacklight UV ink tattoo glow.

Why A Tattoo Appointment Deposit?

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 cancellation or a no-show.  In the event of a less than 72 hour cancellation or no-show, the deposit is kept and non-refundable.

Tattoo Appointment Deposit – $50

What Is Your Cancellation Policy?

We understand that life happens!  If you need to reschedule or cancel your tattoo appointment with us, please do so at least 72 hours in advance.  That way we can still attempt to book another client in your time slot.
