Frequently Asked Questions
How much for a tattoo?
Our shop minimum is $100 and our hourly rate is $150 (Our rates are fairly standard, if not more affordable than most tattoo shops in Portland OR). That being said, the price of a tattoo is often dependent on the design/size/color/placement of the tattoo. Deposits will be taken for tattoos, which goes towards the price of your tattoo. Deposits are non-refundable. Please read our Deposits and Billing Policy here.
What forms of payment do you accept?
Cash is king. But if that doesn't work for you, some of our artists independently have card readers to take major debit and credit cards. A small service fee of 3% applies to the reader. Some artist use payment apps such as: Venmo, Paypal, Cash app, ect. Ask before hand what form of payment works best for your artist.
Do I need to make an appointment to get tattooed?
Normally no, appointments are not required. We welcome walk-in and gladly take them if artists are available for tattooing. But we do recommend making appointments. You can call first thing when the shop opens to see what sort of availability there is for the day.
If I’m under 18, can I get a tattoo?
No, not even with parental consent. It is illegal in the state of Oregon to tattoo minors.
What should I wear when I get tattooed?
Comfortable clothing. Think about the location of your tattoo and come prepared with clothing that you’ll be comfortable getting tattooed in and will allow easy access to the location of your body being tattooed.
Can I bring my friend/boyfriend/mom/kids?
Any guests brought with you to your appointment must stay in the lobby. They may not enter the tattoo area at any point during your tattoo session. We also have a capacity limit in the lobby of five (5) people. If there is more than that inside, we will ask those who are not receiving services to leave. We do not allow children in the shop. Please do not bring them with you.
Is there anything I should do before I come in for my tattoo?
We just suggest you eat something before you come in. Keep that blood sugar level high. And if you’re getting tattooed on/in an intimate location on your body, maybe shower and wash that area for us? Remember your artist’s face will be fairly close to you.
