By Appointment Only
Due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, we are operating by appointment only until further notice. New protocols are in place limiting the capacity of the studio and the number of appointments we can handle on a day-to-day basis. Our door will be locked to everyone who does not have an appointment. Please use the contact form to get ahold of us, as we currently have no counter staff to answer the phone.
Everyone who had made appointments prior to the shutdown for June- November, you have been added to a waiting list by order of appointment and will be contacted over the coming months to rebook. All deposits will be honoured, but we ask that inquiries about refunds be held until after the pandemic.
We have a lot to sort through and we are only human, so if you haven't heard from us, don't be afraid to get in touch so we don't leave anyone behind.
Please wash your hands and don't forget your mask!
WE ARE NOT TAKING WALK-INS AT THIS TIME AND THE ABILITY TO TAKE ON NEW PROJECTS IS LIMITED. PLEASE USE OUR CONTACT FORM BELOW TO GET IN TOUCH
You MUST be at least 18 years or older with photo I.D. to be tattooed at our studio.
You may wear your bandage for 2-12 hours and must not re-bandage the area after its removal.*
Wash your tattoo down with a warm soapy water, any soap without exfoliants is fine.
Let the area dry completely, pat dry with clean paper towel.
Do not apply lotion for the first 24-48 hours
Wash normally and let the tattoo dry completely each time. Always let the tattoo dry before applying lotion.
Lotion may be applied 2-3 times daily for 2 weeks, too much lotion will result in a poor healing experience.
We Recommend: Unscented Lubriderm or A+D ointment, both are available at the studio.
DO NOT USE: Lotions with SPF, anti bacterial ointments, diaper rash cream, alcohol, astringent or peroxide.
Sunscreen is NOT safe to apply to a healing tattoo, and direct sunlight should be avoided.
Soak your tattoo or contaminate it with any water other than water used to clean it.
Peel, pick, rub or stress the area in any way.
Tan, burn or expose the area to direct sunlight, heat or humidity.
We guarantee a free touch-up of all new work for 1 year when properly cared for (except on fingers and palms)
Tattoos showing signs of poor aftercare are exempt from this guarantee.
After two weeks when your tattoo is healed you can resume life as normal.
If you have any questions about your healing tattoo, please don't hesitate to reach out to us.
*If you predict you will be in a dirty or dusty environment, cover the area with clean, loose fitting clothing.
Contaminated fluids (grease, mud, oil, blood) that can soak through clothing and reach your tattoo should be avoided.
The shop has a $150+HST minimum for most tattoos that are palm sized and smaller.
On walk-in days the minimum changes to $100+HST
We are always prepared to work within any reasonable budget, just ask!
We guarantee all tattoos for one year, unless the project was a multiple session piece, or healed improperly,
we will touch it up free of charge.
Or stop in for some good old human interaction.
We require a minimum $100 deposit before booking an appointment.
If you are more than 30 minutes late without notice, cancel your appointment without 48 hours notice, or your artist deems you unfit to be tattooed (drunk or hungover, on drugs, sun-burnt or peeling) you will forfeit your deposit.
Deposits cannot be transferred between clients.
Deposits are non refundable.
Please try to arrive on time or a few minutes before your scheduled appointment.
Late arrivals without notice may lose their deposit and time slot.
It is recommended that you eat something1-2 hours before getting tattooed.
Bring water and a snack if you're rushed.
Gift Certificates can be used in place of a cash deposit.
Gift Certificates must be redeemed by the individual they are issued to.
(certain exceptions may apply)
Please trust your artist
Expect to see your final design the day of your appointment.
Due to the volume of clientele our artists work with, conceptual drawings and final designs are most often worked on during the week leading up to the first scheduled appointment.
Occasionally this timeline doesn't meet the needs of some clientele who wish to see a finished design before moving forward with a project.
Unfortunately, this is something we can not budge on, as our time constraints will not allow us the flexibility to do so.
Thank you in advance for your consideration.
