Our Policies

Our artists take time and care in creating your tattoo for your appointment.  For this reason, we do require a deposit, unless you are a walk-in.  Pricing of tattoos may vary based on size and location of your tattoo.  Please discuss pricing with your specific artist before your appointment.  We understand that life happens and sometimes an appointment needs to be rescheduled.  We require a 48-hour notice to reschedle your appointment.  Failure to show up for your appointment or arriving more than 15 minutes late may result in rescheduling of your appointment and loss of your deposit.  Lastly, the state of NC prohibits artists from tattooing anyone under the age of 18.  Proper photo identification is required at the time of your appointment.
