What are your hours?
All of our artists work by appointment only, so it's best to call or email to schedule a time with them before coming by the shop. We make weekday, weekend, and evening appointment times. If you have availability Mon-Fri days or nights we can ususally get you in sooner than if you need a weekend appointment, as those tend to get booked up the soonest.

If you are the only person being tattooed at the time of your appointment we can allow one person to accompany you during your sitting, otherwise friends will be required to wait in our lobby while you are being tattooed.

We use several brands of ink, all of which are from well-know
companies with great reputations. One of these brands is Eternal
Ink, which is one of the few companies which uses only vegan ingredients
to create their pigment, they state that "Eternal Ink is
100% Vegan safe as we put no animal by-products in any of our
colours." Let us know at time of booking if you prefer this

state of Washington, have Bloodborne Pathogen Certification, and
adhere to a strict procedure in following a sterile chain of events
(Universal Precautions) for evey tattoo. A certified medical grade
autoclave is on site for sterilization. All needles are new and
single use for each client and are disposed of immediately after
use. If you need any additional information concerning our procedures,
policies, licenses or certification please don't hesitate to ask.
Can I take something for
We won't tattoo you if you're under the influence of illegal drugs
or alcohol. Alcohol thins your blood and makes you a pain in the
ass to tattoo. Don't take aspirin or other drugs that thin the
blood before your tattoo, but Ibuprofen, Acetaminophen, or Aleve
are not a bad idea to take the edge off. But... it is common knowledge
that if you take something to null the pain there will be no magic
added to your tattoo... nuff said.
If you have any other questions
please email us or give a call, we're more than happy to help
answer any questions you might have.
