FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What time do you close?
Monday - Thursdays, we close at 10:00pm but we stop taking clients at 9:30p. On Fridays and Saturdays, we close at midnight and stop taking clients at 11:30p. Depending on how busy we are, we may cut off our sign in book to one or more services earlier at our discretion.
How do I go about booking an appointment for a tattoo?
We do not book generic appointments meaning that you call the shop and book a time without first speaking to an artist. You must first decide on and speak with your artist of choice and arrange a consultation which can be booked directly with your artist through their linked website.
At your consultation, your artist will go over the details of your tattoo including the size, level of detail, composition, and placement of the piece. These all factor into the final price. At that time, your artist will quote you the cost of your tattoo. In order to book an appointment, you will have to pay a deposit of a minimum of $50 or up to 50% of the cost of your tattoo. You will then be scheduled a specific date and time that both you and your artist agree on.
If for any reason you can't make it to your appointment, you must give notice no less than 24 hours prior to your appointment if you want a refund. Cancellations less than 24 hours prior to your appointment can be rescheduled and the prepaid deposit will be reapplied.
If you miss your appointment without notifying your artist or if you show up and change your mind at the last minute, your deposit will not be refunded and you will be required to pay a new deposit to book a new appointment.
Can I book an appointment for a body piercing?
No. Due to the amount of traffic we have for body piercings, we don't accept appointments. Body piercings are walk in only, first come first serve.
Please call ahead to make sure a piercer is available to see you.
Can I change my design if I've already booked my appointment?
That would be at the discretion of your artist. Your deposit only covers the time spent putting together the original design you've discussed with your artist. Last minute design changes can lead to you being charged a new deposit for the new design.
What time do you open?
We open at 12:00pm Monday through Saturday. We are closed on Sundays (starting June 2020).
How do I go about getting a quote for a tattoo?
The best way to get a quote is to come and speak to an artist in person.
If you do not live in Atlanta and are looking to get a quote ahead of a visit, we will do our best to accommodate you through email, however, you must be able to provide us with very detailed information about your idea including exact size measurements and any sample pictures you may have. Even still, your quote may not be final until you come to speak with your artist in person.
We do not give price quotes over the phone.
