WHAT ARE YOUR OPENING HOURS?
We are open 7 days a week from 11am – 6pm. You are welcome to visit us anytime during working hours to discuss your design ideas – there’s always someone at reception to help. If we feel an additional consultation is required with a specific artist, we’ll arrange that.
Please try and be here by 5.30pm if you wish to discuss your design and make all required arrangements.
Our studio is closed only 5 days a year: 24-26 December, 31 December – 1 January.
DO YOU DO PIERCING?
No! Please see our friends at Cold Steel.
DO YOU TAKE WALK-INS?
Yes, depending on availability. Please call ahead…
DO YOU TAKE CREDIT CARDS?
No, cash only.
DO YOU SELL GIFT VOUCHERS?
Yes! We can post it to you if you live outside London.
WHAT ARE YOUR RATES?
The shop minimum is £60. Hourly rates for session work is £120 per hour. Single sitting tattoos are quoted by the piece based on size, detail, location on the body and colour of the design.
HOW OLD MUST I BE TO GET TATTOOED?
You must be 18 or over to get tattooed. Upon booking an appointment you may need to present a PHOTO I.D. It is illegal to tattoo anyone under the age of 18, EVEN WITH PARENTAL CONSENT.
CAN I DRINK ALCOHOL BEFORE MY APPOINTMENT?
Absolutely not! We will not work on you if we suspect you are under the influence of alcohol or drugs. You will lose your deposit if you arrive to your appointment smelling of booze. Save it for after the work gets done.
HOW DO I BOOK AN APPOINTMENT?
We prefer to book appointments in person as we would like to discuss your design first and require a cash deposit (approx. half of the estimated price) to secure your appointment and to begin the drawing process. However, if you live outside London we’ll be able to conduct a consultation and booking via email, with deposit paid via PayPal (please note that payment via PayPal has a small fee). Deposits are left for a reason. We consider it a confirmation from you that you are committed to your appointment, the design and our time. DEPOSITS ARE NON-REFUNDABLE, so please be 100% sure about your booking and design.
If you email us for a quote, please give us as much information as possible regarding your idea. Please be sure to include size, where on your body, colour or black and gray etc. If you should have reference material, feel free to show us photos, drawings, sketches – pretty much anything that can help our artists visualise your idea. Once we know what you’d like to get we’ll be able to provide you with a rough quote, time estimate and appointment availability.
Please note we will only tattoo hands and sides of neck/throat if you are already heavily tattooed…
CAN I BRING A FRIEND - FAMILY MEMBER TO MY APPOINTMENT?
We kindly ask that you don’t. Not because we are anti-social, but only because space is limited in the work rooms. Only the person getting tattooed gets to go upstairs. Please leave the kids at home!
WHAT TO DO BEFORE MY APPOINTMENT?
If you have a morning appointment make sure you get a good night’s rest and please do not over do it the night before. Getting tattooed if you’re worn out or hung over does not make the expeience any better for either you or the artist. Make sure you have a good meal at least three hours before coming in and we suggest bring a cold sugary drink with you (lucazaid, coke, juice etc.) just to keep your energy level and blood sugar up.
