Your design will be ready on the day and at the time of your scheduled appointment unless arrangements are made, and agreed upon, with your artist BEFORE BOOKING your appointment. We schedule your appointment with plenty of time to check out the design and make any minor changes before having the tattoo done.
Email us with the following information:
-Include “tattoo appointment” in the subject line of your email.
-Reference pictures of your design/ideas. Please include pictures as attachments to the email.
-How big would you like the tattoo done? Please estimate in inches (using a ruler or tape measure). “not too big”, “not too small”, or “medium size” is not an accurate estimate.
-Where exactly on your body would you like the design placed. Examples: “left cheek” or “top of head” or “outside of left bicep” or “inside of left calf”.
-Color or black and grey?
-If there is any text in your design, what type of font would you like it done in?
-Any other important details about the design you’d like the artist to know.
Please include all information as plain text in the body of the email and attach any picture references to the email. Include all questions you may have in the same email too. Separate emails with multiple questions, explanations, or thoughts will make the process take longer and we would like to cut down on any unnecessary back-and-forth to get you booked as quickly as possible.
Once we receive your email, an artist will get back to you within 1-4 business days (days that we are open) with a price estimate and instructions on how to book an appointment.
Please be patient as we are very busy tattooing full time, drawing designs for customers with appointments, as well as spending hours responding to email inquiries.
Absolutely. We use brand new single use needles for each tattoo or piercing and then dispose of them properly. All of our tools, equipment and jewelry are packaged sealed and sterilized to avoid cross contamination. We have our Autoclave in the shop and it is spore tested monthly to ensure that it is working properly. We take pride in our clean, safe and comfortable tattoo and piercing spaces.
Currently due to the COVID-19 pandemic restrictions in Pennsylvania we are not permitted to perform any walk-in services. All services we offer must be done by appointment. This includes purchasing jewelry, consultations, and check-ups.

It all depends on size, detail and placement of your tattoo design. Our shop minimum is $60 and our hourly rate is $120.
Piercing prices depend on the jewelry that is chosen for the initial piercing. Prices range from $50-$65 each. These prices include your choice of basic jewelry.
To receive a tattoo or piercing you must be 18 years or older and have proper identification. We do not tattoo anyone under the age of 18 even with parental consent. We do pierce clients under 18 (usually no younger than 12 depending on piercing) with parental consent, proper I.D. and paperwork. We need an affidavit signed and notarized (email us for the printable affidavit) we need a photo I.D. AND original birth certificate (we do not accept copies) for the minor and a valid photo I.D. for the parent.
What is acceptable identification?
For adults 18 and older they are one of the following:
- A valid state issued I.D. card
- A valid state issued drivers license (no out of country drivers licenses)
- A valid passport
- A valid military I.D.
- A recent photo I.D. (like a school ID card) AND your original birth certificate.
Minors with parental consent must have all of the following:
- Parent must be present with Photo I.D.
- Minor must have photo ID (recent school ID, state issued ID card or drivers license) AND their original birth certificate.
- You must have a signed and notarized affidavit (available via email)
All documents must be originals we do not accept copies. All forms of ID must be valid and not expired. We will not accept expired ID’s.
No, we do not allow children in the tattoo shop under any circumstances.
We want to protect everyone involved as piercing a minor is a pretty big deal. No one but a parent or legal guardian can sign and give consent for a minor. They are the only adult that, by Pennsylvania state law, can make a decision for a minor that will change his or her body. These steps and paperwork help to ensure that no one but you can make a decision for your child.
Yes you can! We accept Visa and MasterCard. We also accept cold hard cash. We do not take checks, trades, IOU’s or payment plans. Payment in full is expected when services are complete that day.
We use only high quality implant grade steel, titanium, 14kt or 18kt gold to pierce with. We also only use high quality internally threaded or treadless jewelry for initial piercings. We carry jewelry from the best manufacturers like Anatometal, NeoMetal, LeRoi, Tether, and Body Gems to be used in initial or healed piercings. Please notify your artist of any known allergy to metals or latex so we can take the steps to protect you.
No, we can only use the jewelry we have to make sure it is the right size and material and to make sure it is sterile.
