Walk-in tattoo slots are welcome all days of the week but are subject to availability and run on a first-come-first-serve basis.
Appointments are to be made in shop upon paying a deposit to ensure the correct price and time frame for the tattooing can be calculated from viewing the design and it’s area of placement. This is why we cannot take appointments or give quotations by telephone or email.
We take health and safety seriously for the welfare of all our customers, which is why we have a strict ‘single-use’ on all needles, ink, ink cups used per customer.
Written after-care instructions are given to our clients and we stock after-care products such as the Bapanthen.
We are proud of our work, emphasising customer care from original conception through to completed piece and after-care.
