DO YOU TAKE WALK-INS?
We have a piercer on staff every day taking walk-ins from noon until 11pm. You do not need to schedule an appointment for a piercing.
We also take tattoo walk-ins from noon to 11pm, but we can never guarantee availability. We will do everything we can to get you in that day, including checking availability at our other location, but we can only take people on a first come/first serve basis (and we can get super busy at any time!). Our best advice is to get to the studio at noon when we open. If we absolutely aren’t able to get you in, you can consult with an artist and/or schedule an appointment.

HOW DO I MAKE AN APPOINTMENT?
Come by the studio and talk to one of our artists!
It’s always best to bring any references or images that will help explain the idea for your tattoo.
CAN I MAKE AN APPOINTMENT OVER THE PHONE?
Unfortunately, we can’t make appointments over the phone.
There are many factors that need to be discussed before your tattoo can be started, and speaking to an artist in person is the best way to communicate your ideas.
Once you’ve been tattooed and are working with one of the artists regularly, they are more likely to set up future sessions without the need to discuss things in person. So please stop by and see us!
I TOOK OUT MY PIERCING AND NOW I CAN’T GET IT BACK IN. WHAT SHOULD I DO?
Come in to the shop and one of our piercers will sterilize and insert your jewelry for free! We have the know-how & tools available to us to make this an easier process than on your own and are glad to help.
HOW MANY PIERCINGS IS IT POSSIBLE TO GET AT ONE TIME?
We usually say that 2 is quite safe. If you have been pierced before and are very comfortable with the piercing process as well as the healing process, we will sometimes even do 4.
HOW LONG SHOULD I WAIT IN BETWEEN STRETCHING A PIERCING?
The minimum time you should wait in between stretches is one month but two months is preferred! If there has been any excessive irritation, it will take longer in between stretches as well. The main thing is patience and paying attention to your body.
DO YOU TATTOO/PIERCE MINORS? WHAT DO I NEED TO BRING?
Yes. We pierce and tattoo minors on a case by case basis. Each artist has their own policy regarding clients under 18 years old. Please call or stop by either of our studios for more information.
A PARENT OR LEGAL GUARDIAN MUST BE PRESENT DURING THE TATTOO OR PIERCING.
MINORS MUST HAVE:
State ID, Driver’s License, Student ID (with photo) or Passport
AND a Birth Certificate. (Absolutely required)
PARENTS/LEGAL GUARDIANS MUST HAVE:
State ID, Driver’s License, or Passport
If there has been a name change (ie, child’s name does not match parent’s), you must provide documentation of the name change.
HOW LONG DO I NEED TO WAIT TO GO SWIMMING AFTER A PIERCING/TATTOO?
We recommend waiting at least a month after a new piercing or tattoo before you get back in the pool or hit the beach. Chemicals, bacteria, and sand could all be a threat to your new piercing/tattoo. If you can’t avoid the water, we suggest using a water proof patch to cover your new piercing/tattoo.
I WANT TO GET A TATTOO. HOW MUCH DO THEY COST?
There is no set price for any type of tattoo. Many factors, including, size, placement, and detail go into the pricing of a tattoo. If you come in and speak to one of our tattoo artists they will be happy to discuss your tattoo ideas and be able to give you a pricing quote!
I JUST GOT A TATTOO A FEW DAYS AGO AND NOW MY TATTOO LOOKS SCABBY AND IS FLAKING. IS THIS NORMAL?
Yes, scabbing is a natural part of the healing process and it’s best to let the scabs fall off on their own, so don’t pick or scratch and you’ll be just fine!
HOW LONG AFTER GETTING A TATTOO DO I NEED TO WAIT TO START TANNING AGAIN?
We recommend waiting at least one to two months, depending on how well your tattoo is healing! One option is to cover your tattoo completely with a white bandage while you are tanning so it’s protected from those harmful rays. Tanning can fade your tattoo very quickly so we suggest using a high SPF sunblock when out in the sun to keep your tattoos looking bright and fresh!
DO YOU DO/OFFER BRANDING AND SCARIFICATION?
These are not services we offer to our customers and we suggest if seeking these or other more extreme body modifications that you talk to a doctor regarding the risks of these procedures. If you stop by our piercing studio, we have artists available to help answer questions regarding these types of modification!
