TATTOO TOUCH UP POLICY

TOUCH UPS ARE FREE ONLY IF SCHEDULED WITH YOUR NEXT PAID FOR TATTOO, MUST MENTION AHEAD TO FIT TIME IN, DUE TO OTHER CLIENT APPOINTMENTS.

TOUCH UPS BY THEMSELVES

CURRENTLY SHOP MINIMUM $100 DUE TO COST OF SUPPLIES AND MEDICAL SETUP AND STERILIZATION COSTS.

Touch ups of other artists work are subject to our regular tattoo pricing.  Our pricing model does not allow for free touch ups scheduled by themselves.  See our FAQs page.

NO GUARANTEES

FOR TATTOOS DONE ON PALMS, FINGERS, OR FOOT TATTOOS.

  The skin on your palms, your fingers and the soles of your feet regenerates ten times faster than anywhere else on your body due to amount of wear and tear these parts of the body receive daily, which can cause these tattoos to fade or not hold. These areas are common to need touch ups - touch ups price on these areas may cost more.  No exceptions!

FURTHER DEPOSIT DISCLOSURE:

  • Goes toward tattoo or piercing recently priced, cannot be transferred to another person or a tattoo.

  • 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.
