No pets allowed inside the building. This is a zero tolerance policy. There is too much of an increased risk of cross contamination with animals inside the building.

What do you recommend for tattoo aftercare?
We offer View Guard for smaller tattoos.
"Dynarex View Guard Sterile Transparent Dressings provide a breathable barrier for wounds, letting air in while keeping moisture vapors and fluid out." (Dynarex Website)
This is kept on for 3 days then washed with warm, soapy water. Otherwise we recommend 2min hot water 2min cold on a fresh tattoo for the first day or two. Keep your healing tattoo lightly moisturized. Use a light layer of Aquaphor or unscented lotion.
Can you do cover-up tattoos?
Scar/Stretch Mark cover-ups?
We will have to sit down together to discuss these questions. Generally, we can work together on these projects; but it completely depends on the type of cover-up, how big it is, and where it is located. You will need to book a consultation with your artist in order to determine any cover-up work. To cover or beautify scar tissue, we will also need to take a look at the area in question.
Do you have tattoo flash or walk-in tattoo times?
We do not *usually* do walk-ins. Most of the time our artists create and tattoo custom pieces. This means, an artist might have a ready-to-tattoo design; however, they will not re-use a design. Your tattoo will be completely unique and tailored to you. We typically require one consultation session before any tattooing takes place. You can come in with a design you want but we will still sit down and work through the design in our own way. We can often tattoo same-day.
How do you determine pricing?
Each artist can determine their own pricing. Generally speaking, you will get a price for the whole piece or you will pay by the hour. Smaller pieces are easier to price out ahead of time. Larger pieces and ongoing work tend to be paid for by the hour. If you are worried about pricing, please mention it to your artist. We value the work we do and we hope you will as well.
Do you accept Debit/Credit cards?
We do not accept Debit or Credit cards at the moment. We do prefer cash payment and can direct you to a nearby ATM on the avenue. We also accept payments via Zelle, Cashapp, and Venmo. It is recommended to double check with your artist first as some of us prefer one method over another occasionally.
