WHAT TO KNOW AFTER BOOKING A TATTOO:
*All stencil drawing is done BEFORE your session. Our artists draw 1 -2 nights before, and will go through design drafts and options at your appointment time. When our consult forms are filled out correctly, we will have a very clear picture of what you want, if we have questions we will absolutely reach out.
Hand drawn tattoos are done on site, the day-of. You will see and approve all designs before tattooing.
Please communicate any desired concept additions or changes from those listed on your form at least 24 hours BEFORE your appointment by filling out a new consult form with those changes. We use the forms as a guideline at the drawing table. Do not wait until you come in.
If changes are needed and the artist is not notified in advance, for time purposes your appointment may need to be rescheduled in order to make those changes, and an additional drawing fee will be applied based on scale.
**IF you are booking a 3D nipple session, Please check out our mastectomy FACTS page. We do not require consults for mastectomy work or permanent makeup.
Our cancelation policies are in place to give us time to fill your appointment slot if you should need to adjust your schedule. Our artists rely on their set schedules for their professional income. When last minute cancelations or reschedules happen, your artist is not given time to fill your appointment and looses their daily income without notice.
