WHAT TO KNOW AFTER BOOKING A TATTOO:
*All design drawing is done BEFORE your session. Our artists draw 1 -2 nights BEFORE YOUR SESSION. THey will show you the design and go over any design options at your appointment time. We do this so we can discuss the drawing with you and so we get your own genuine feedback and opinions. If we have questions during the drawing process, we will absolutely reach out for clarity.
Hand drawn tattoos are done on-site, the day-of. This does take extra time, however is a time-honored tradition and an amazing process that works better for some tattoos.
Regardless of stenciling technique, you will see and approve all designs before tattooing.
Please communicate any major desired concept additions or changes from those listed on your informational form at least 24 hours BEFORE your appointment by updating your information form via email. You were sent a copy of that when you submitted your form. 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.
Our cancelation policies are in place to give us time to fill your appointment slot if you should need to change your appointment. 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 loses their planned daily income, without notice.
Bluebird Ink holds a strict 48-hour cancelation policy for all tattoo & permanent makeup services.
**Use the link in your confirmation email or text to make changes in advance.
Cancelations made after the 48-hour window, or No Call/No-shows, may have up to the full-service cost charged to the card on file. WE DO NOT OFFER RETURNS.
Please text the shop 502.324.3371 in case of a last-minute emergency.
