FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What You Need to Know

I WOULD LIKE TO GET TATTOOED, HOW DO I GET BOOKED IN?

The best option is to email us at info@thegrasshopper.co.uk to discuss details of the tattoo you would like and how the process works. We can also book you in for an in-person consultation – this is a 15 minute chat with one of our artists to discuss your tattoo. 


You can then book in for the tattoo there and then or go away and have some time to think about it. If you decide to book in, we’ll give you available dates and take a deposit to secure the appointment. 

DO YOU REQUIRE A BOOKING FEE?

Yes, this secures the appointment and is non-refundable. Once you have paid a deposit to secure your appointment an artist can start working on your design.

HOW SHOULD I PREPARE FOR MY TATTOO APPOINTMENT?

Please make sure you are hydrated and have eaten at least 2 hours before your tattoo appointment.
Drinking the night before is not recommended and we reserve the right to refuse any treatment if you arrive at your appointment under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
In addition, avoid tanning or applying any fake tan on the area to be tattooed prior your appointment.

 

I WANT A TATTOO BUT I’M ON A LIMITED BUDGET. HOW DO YOU DETERMINE PRICING?

We can design a tattoo that suits your budget. The size and detail are the main factors that determine the price of your tattoo. 


The minimum charge for a tattoo is £55. We offer a 4 hour session at £350 and a day session starting from £550. This is for large tattoos and does not include script.

ARE THEIR ANY HEALTH CONDITIONS WHICH MEAN I CAN NOT GET TATTOOED?

There are certain conditions and circumstances which mean that you will be unable to get tattooed, these include:

Pregnancy / Breast Feeding

If you suffer/have suffered from Hepatitis or you are HIV positive, you are obliged to inform us of it as stated in our consent form. We work under high levels of infection control so it is possible to be tattooed, however due to the nature of the procedure and personal risk involved, it’s at the artist’s discretion if he/she will proceed with the appointment.

If you have any serious medical conditions we recommend that you call the studio on 02084279559 so we can advise you on if this will be affected by the tattooing process.

IF I AM UNDER 18 CAN I GET A TATTOO?

No, not under any circumstances. This is against the law even with parental consent.

IS GETTING A TATTOO SAFE?

Hygiene is of the utmost importance to us all. We go above and beyond sanitation regulations to ensure your safety and ours throughout the tattoo procedure. We work on a strictly one-use system, meaning all equipment used during your tattoo will be disposable to prevent cross-contamination.
