    How Old I Have To Be To Get a Tattoo?

    You must be at least 18 years of age. It is against New York State law (Section 260.21) to tattoo a minor, even with parental consent.

    How Can I Get a Price Quote?

    In order for us to quote your idea, we need to consider the subject, size, placement on the body, detail, etc. Because of covid regulations we cannot do a face-to-face consults nowadays.

    How Should I Prepare for My Tattoo Session?

    We recommend that you eat well before you come in, and remember to stay hydrated. If you start to feel woozy, have a soda. Sugar is your friend in this situation. Walking around NYC all day in the summer, without drinking any water and then coming to get tattooed on an empty stomach is a sure recipe for passing out. It’s best not to party the night before because alcohol can increase bleeding for up to 24 hours. Blood also dilutes our pigments, affecting both the appearance of your tattoo as well as the healing process. Remember to stay calm and cool, you’re in good hands. There’s nothing to stress over—it’s just a tattoo!

    Do I Need To Leave a Deposit To Schedule an Appointment?

    Yes. A $250 deposit is required to make an appointment. Deposits are non-refundable and non-transferable and will be applied to the final price of your tattoo.

    What Forms of Payment are Accepted?

    We accept cash or credit cards (Visa, Mastercard, Discover, American Express). No checks.
