Tattoo appointments cannot be switched for a piercing appointment and vise versa.
Tattoos are forever, we understand that occasions arise where you may want to change your tattoo design. Last minute changes or changes after scheduling an appointment are FROWNED UPON as it can affect our other clients appointment times and costs us extra time in preparing new stencils/drawings in between our daily appointments. This is why we highly recommend a consultation appointment before the tattoo appointment if you are indecisive.
Minor alterations to a design are okay at our discretion, and must be approved by us well before an appointment - with a likely need to reschedule.

A NOTE ON NUMBING FOR TATTOOS
WE DO NOT OFFER NUMBING BEFORE STARTING A TATTOO
PLEASE BE ADVISED:
Due to time constraints: numbing NOT OFFERED beforehand for tattoos. Topical numbing must be applied 45 minutes to 1 hour before your planned tattoo on your own time if you choose to use. TIP: Take a hot shower to help open pores, use skin exfoliant product. Then after applying numbing product, wrap in suran wrap. This will trap body heat under the wrap, allowing your pores to open and absorb numbing more efficiently.
For larger tattoos with lots of color or shading, we do offer an optional 5% Lidocaine spray that can only be used after doing the initial linework (must be applied to 'broken' skin to absorb.
RISKS NUMBING TATTOOS:
The risk is small, but you should consider the following when looking into using numbing product for purpose of inking.
All topical numbing products have a"vasoconstrictor," side effect - essentially slowing the blood flow of tiny blood vessels (capillaries) temporarily to skin surface.
This side effect makes skin have less elasticity, therefore it can take longer to tattoo because the artist cannot 'stretch' the skin as efficiently to apply ink.
This increases chance for needing touch up at cost, because ink does not always cooperate going into the skin as well when the skin is numbed.
With skincare services there are no issues, this is a factor to consider only when putting ink into skin.

REGARDING YOUNG CHILDREN:
