Why do I need a deposit for my tattoo?

On complicated tattoos, and large scale tattoos the artist may spend countless hours of researching and drawing. So to assure that they do not do all the extra work just for a tattoo that will not be done. We require a $50-$100 cash deposit depending on the size of design, 100% of the deposit is applied to the last tattoo session.The deposit will be applied to the tattoo unless a no call or no show for the tattoo, in that case the full amount of the deposit will be forfeited.

"If I do a job in 30 minutes it's because I spent 10 years learning how to do that in 30 minutes. You owe me for my years not the minutes"    ~ Cory Rogers

  Our shop minimum starts at $60 and hourly rate is $125 per hour.

The cost of your tattoo depends on a number of factors including size, placement, and color vs. black and gray. For smaller tattoos, we will generally quote you a price up-front. For larger tattoos, an hourly rate will be implemented.
