What You Need to Know

How do I care for my new tattoo?

Every shop has their own recommended care methods. You will be given an instruction card after you’ve been tattooed.

How long will it take for my tattoo to heal?

It takes two (2) weeks to “heal,” but it takes months for the skin to fully regenerate

How old do I have to be to get a Tattoo?

You must be at least 18 years of age. It is against Texas State law (Section 146.012) to tattoo a minor, even with parental consent. Not only must you be 18, but you also have to provide proof in the form of a valid State or Federal Photo ID. No exceptions.

How much does a tattoo cost?

It depends on the artist, our minimum is $80. The final price is dependent on size, detail of the design, and the location on the body where it will be placed.

How can I receive a price quote?

The best way to get an accurate price range is by booking a (free!) in-person consultation with the artist. If an in-person consult is not possible prior to the scheduled work, a thorough and detailed email regarding your requests may suf ice. In order for us to quote your idea, we need to consider the subject, size, placement on the body, detail, etc. You are also welcome to come into the shop and talk to one of our artists, if they’re available. We’re always more than happy to help you

Does it hurt?

Yes! But in in a good way. Your brain releases endorphins when you go through pain and your body loves endorphins, so yes, it hurts, but you’ll kinda like it.

what forms of payment are accepted?

We accept cash or credit cards (Visa, Mastercard, Discover, American Express). No checks.

Do I need to leave a deposit if I decide to schedule an appointment?

Yes. A 25% deposit is required to make an appointment. Deposits are non-refundable, non-transferable, and will be applied to the final price of your tattoo.

How should I prepare for my new tattoo?

We recommend that you eat well before you come in, and remember to stay hydrated. If you start to feel woozy, have a soda. Sugar is your friend in this situation. It’s best not to party the night before because alcohol can increase bleeding for up to 24 hours. Blood also dilutes our pigments,
af ecting both the appearance of your tattoo as well as the healing process. Remember to stay calm and cool, you’re in good hands.
