Been working on my sweet side piece and it's almost done! 6 years of work. Becky is wonderful. If you go somewhere else, you're missing out.

How do I make an appointment?

Easy! We prefer that you stop by the shop. If you are unable to come in at that time, calling is totally acceptable. We will set up an appointment with the artist of your choice. We require a deposit of 50$ cash at the time of making your appointment.

If you can’t make it in to set up your appointment date/deposit, you will need to make arrangements to mail in a money order for your deposit. NO CASH – NO INK.

Can I get someone else’s tattoo if it’s a flash design?

Yes. However, if it is someone’s custom piece of artwork, we will not replicate it. We will use it as inspiration for your piece!

What is flash?

Designs made to be reproduced over and over again. They can be found in tattoo studios and websites that specify that they are flash designs.

What do I do if I have a problem with my new tattoo or piercing?

Feel free to call or stop by the shop. We are more than happy to help provide you with information; even if we didn’t do your tattoo or piercing. Remember, do not believe everything you breathe, read on the internet or what your friend’s sister’s college roommate says about tattoo or piercing maintenance. We are professionals. Trust us.
