If you're wondering how much a tattoo will cost you, please read through or guide to pricing found here:
How much do tattoos cost?

Please understand that there are a number of variables that come into play when pricing out a tattoo and it always best to stop into to see the artist you want to work with to discuss getting a final price estimate.

Please bring valid photo ID if you are 18 or older.  Our insurance allows us to pierce 16 and 17 years.  Pennsylvania state law requires parental consent for procedures on minors.  We require valid ID from both the minor and the parent/legal guardian.  If last names do not match on the ID, we requires proof of guardianship.  We do not make exceptions.  We reserve the right to refuse service to any minor based on our best professional opinion.  We will not tattoo minor's hands, necks, faces, or genitals etc.  We will not pierce minor female nipples or genitals.

An additional piece of advice -
We checked with four different insurance companies for coverage.  NONE of them allowed procedures on minors under 16.  If you find a studio who will pierce or tattoo your minor under the age of 16, we will advise you to ask for proof of liability insurance covering procedures at such a young age.  There is a chance these types of studios are either not insured, or breaking their insurance company's rules in order to make a buck.

Yes.  While it is a question we do get tired of hearing, it is certainly one most first timers  ask.  Piercings hurt.  Some areas of the body hurt more the others.  Everyone has a different threshold for pain.  We cannot predict your pain response.  If you are unable to sit steadily for your piercing, it will be hard for us to complete your piercing successfully.  It is important to mentally prepare for your piercing.  We have found that clients who bring friends along to watch them get pierced usually appear and act more uncomfortable than those who do not.  So if you are worried about the pain, do not bring a friend...it does not seem to help the pain go away!

Micropigmentation varies depending on your individual body chemistry, lifestyle and ethnic background. Every client heals differently. This is why each new service includes two sessions in the price. It is essential to assess color retention and shape. Permanent cosmetics is not an exact science but an art form. Some clients may not need their secondary session at all while other may need to come in for additional touch up sessions. The cost for this is $75.00 within 90 days from the last session.

Generally, for piercings, making an appointment isn't necessary. However, it is always best to call ahead just to make sure the piercers are available.  We have piercers on schedule 7 days a week at all locations, but occasionally they are out sick or on a lunch break.

Some of our tattoo artists are free for walk ins, others are booked out as far as six months.  We prefer a consultation if possible for tattoos, although smaller, simpler ones may not require one.  Occasionally our artists will be able to fit in a small tattoo in between their regular appointments.  We try to update our Facebook page with these availabilities when we can.

The best approach is to call or stop into the location your preferred artist works at.  Our tattooer schedules are on our tattoo artist page.  Then, set-up a consultation. From there, your chosen artist will either be able to get you in right away, or they will set-up an appointment for you at your earliest convenience. At this time, you will be expected to put down a deposit in order to reserve the spot.  We require a minimum of $50 for tattoo appointments, which is applied to the final cost of your tattoo.  Large pieces or session work may require a larger deposit at the artist's discretion
