Frequently asked questions


How do I make an appointment?

Check out the artists portfolios and contact the artist. To schedule an apointment we require an $80 deposit which comes off of the last session of your tattoo and holds the time and date of your appointments.

How much for a tattoo?

Depends on what you want to get tattooed. We have an $80 minimum on the arm and leg and it goes up from there. Smaller tattoos are charged by design, size, and placement. Larger tattoos are charged hourly at $150hr.

How do I take care of my new tattoo?

1. Remove bandage in a clean bathroom after 2-3 hours. Bandage may be left on overnight if it feels comfortable and secure. If the bandage is removed on the first night, the tattoo may stick to or stain bed sheets. Maintain clean bedding throughout the healing process (about 2 weeks). 2. After removing bandage, wash the tattoo immediately with warm water and soap. We recommend plain Dial soap out of pump bottle. No soap with fragrance moisture beads or scrubs. PROCESS FOR WASHING A FRESH TATTOO: *Carefully remove bandage and tape *Make a lather in your hand with soap and warm water *Gently clean tattoousing a circular motion, until all ointment, blood, and lymphatic fluid are removed *Rinse the tattoo and wash once again, gently, until the skin is clean *A clean paper towel may also be used to dab the tattoo dry 3. Only use CLEAN HANDS to wash your tattoo. NO washcloths, bath sponges, loofahs on a fresh tattoo. 4. Once the tattoo is dry apply AQUAPHOR healing ointment, made by Eucerin. Apply a thin layer and rub it in, then dab excess off with a clean paper towel. Use the Aquaphor for the first 2-3 days then switch to a regular FRAGRANCE FREE lotion such as Lubriderm, or any other fragrance free brand. 5. Fresh tattoos sometimes "weep" during the first couple of days, meaning that plasma and ink form a thin moist coating on the skin. This can DABBED with a clean paper towel. Press the paper towel to the skin and remove. Do not wipe the tattoo or be rough with it. Do not panic when you see the colors of the tattoo on the paper towel or on your hands as you clean it. This is simply excess ink being sloughed from the surface or the skin. 6. Once a day, in the shower, is usually enough cleaning for any new tattoo. Consult your artist if you plan to do any strenuous activity within the first ten days of having your tattoo. Lotion may be applied to the tattoo as it dries out, however, if your skin is extremly sensitive, lotion may cause an acne like breakout. This can be taken care of by reducing the number of lotion applications per day. 7. Wear loose, preferably cotton, clothing over the fresh tattoo. The tattoo need not be rebandaged except in certain, rare instances. A bra strap, tight waistband, sweaty gym shoe, or itchy cotton sweater can potentially create healing problems. Consult with your artist for advice on what clothing to wear and avoid. If you choose to re-bandage your tattoo after washing be sure that only sterile bandages are used. 8. After a few days, the tattoo will begin to form flaky scabs that will fall off on their own. DO NOT PICK OR SCRATCH AT YOUR TATTOO. It normally takes 2-4 weeks for a tattoo to completely heal. If you have ANY questions about your healing, please contact on of our artists C/S Tattoo. PLEASE do not consult your friends about healing issues as everyone'e experience is unique. Our artists are more than happy to help with any concerns you might have.
