For any cancellations/rescheduling, you must contact your artist directly, and a minimum of 48 hours is required, otherwise it may result in a forfeiture of your deposit. No-shows will result in a forfeiture of your deposit.
Consultations are always complimentary and are drop-in, so there is no need to book in for one, although it never hurts to give us a call before stopping in to make sure the artist you’d like to speak with is available. Please bring any reference material with you and if after your consultation you decide to book an appointment for your tattoo, a deposit will be required to secure your appointment, which will be applied to the total cost of your tattoo.
A non-refundable cash deposit will be required to secure your appointment and will go towards the total cost of your tattoo. The minimum deposit is $100 plus GST, however, for larger pieces, we may require more.
Must come in for a consult, so we can take a look at the piece you’d like covered up in person. From there, our artists can take a look, give recommendations, determine if the piece can be covered up, or if it is more ideal to undergo laser tattoo removal treatments before a new piece can be done over top.
This is a very common question, and honestly, we have no way of accurately quoting you on the cost of a sleeve or any piece until we have a consultation with you first. We charge an hourly rate of $160+GST, so the total cost of your piece will be dependent on several factors, including the size of your piece, the details associated with it, your artist, and your individual pain tolerance. Your artist should be able to give you an estimate on how long it will take them to complete your tattoo at your consultation, so just make sure you ask them at that time.
We definitely take walk ins if we are available! You can always call us at 780-488-8770 to see if we are fully booked for the day, or stop in and chat with us.
Unfortunately, we do not offer piercings at this time.
We will not tattoo anyone under the age of 18, no exceptions. Please feel free to stop in and chat with us about a new tattoo after you turn 18!
This answer will vary and depends on the artist and your individual piece; please ensure you discuss this during your consultation.
New tattoos are always exciting to get, but we also understand that it can be a little nerve wrecking too, especially if it’s your first tattoo. In some cases it’s okay to bring someone with you to keep you calm and give you advice on placement, etc, but try to keep your company limited to one or at the very most, two people and, depending on your artist, they may be asked to wait in the waiting area for some or all of your tattoo. Too many people crowding one space can create a safety concern when dealing with sharp materials and bio hazardous waste, and the safety of our tattoo studio is more important to us than having your friend watch you get tattooed. It’s always best to check with your artist ahead of time so you are clear of what to expect. To be perfectly honest, watching someone get tattooed is actually really boring. It’s nice to have someone with you at the very beginning, but if you’re expected to be with us for awhile, it might be a good idea to have your company go out and grab a bite to eat or have a coffee for the better part of your appointment.
While it varies from person to person, it takes approximately 2 weeks for your tattoo to initially heal. You will know it’s healed when there is no more skin flakes/scabbing present. Please do not shave over your tattoo or put any scented lotions/products on it until it is fully healed.
Aftercare for your tattoo is really quite simple. Keep in mind, less is more! Here are some general guidelines to follow for the weeks following your appointment:
