What is a consultation?
A consultation is an appointment where you will meet with the artist to review the details of your design. At this time the artist will go over the nature and possibilities of your request, and will be able to work with you to create the best possible outcome for your tattoo design. Keep in mind that not all ideas and designs are suitable for a tattoo.
There is NO charge for the consultation.
We ask that you bring with you any hardcopy reference materials for your artist to review during the consultation process, in the forms of images, words, drawings etc.. Be prepared to leave these images with your artist.
Do I have to leave a deposit?
Yes, in order to schedule an appointment we require all clients to leave a minimum $50.00 deposit. This deposit then goes towards the price of the tattoo. If the tattoo requires more than one session, you’re deposit will be deducted from the last session.
Tattoo artists are paid on an hourly basis. For example, if your tattoo takes two hours to complete, you will be charged $120 x 2hrs - $240. To be as cost effective as possible you should bring the exact image that you would like tattooed. You can create the design yourself or go online and find the image and bring it with you.
If you need help, our artist Mike Saulnier can create an image for you. He can either fine tune an image you have or he can create an image from several samples of art that you provide. IMPORTANT: Because Mike is paid for his time, you will be charged $120hr whether he is tattooing or drawing an image for you. He will give you an estimate for tattoo and tattoo design in advance so there are no surprises. If you want to avoid design costs, then bring the final image with you to your consultation.
If the appointment needs to be rescheduled, 48 hours notice must be given or the deposit will be forfeited. Mike is fully booked. A last minute cancellation is very costly.
All deposits are non-refundable.
