Frequently Asked Questions
Q: How much will my tattoo cost?
A: This obviously being the most common question and one of the hardest to answer without you actually being in person to discuss. Size, detail, and placement all play a key factor into the price. Also it's hard to go over the fine details of a tattoo over the phone or Internet. Best thing to do is to call the shop (863-937-9777), speak with one of our artists and set up a consultation.
Q: Does it hurt?
A: Everyone has a different pain tolerance. The more painful parts on the human body would be the ribs, chest, feet, neck, and hip. We always tell our customers to try and not let the "pain" be a deciding factor and that they should ultimately get the tattoo where they want it.
Q: How do I care for my new tattoo?
A: We have detailed instructions available at the shop and online for your convenience. Please follow those instructions and you'll heal up just fine. We also sell aftercare at the shop called Redemption. We HIGHLY recommend using it. Not only do we use it ourselves, we tattoo with it as well.
Q: Is it safe?
A: Yes! Not only do we meet and succeed any and all Health Department regulations, our setup is completely disposable. Once were done with the tattoo, everything hits the trash and bio bag! Not only that but collectively we have over 35 years of experience! You are definitely safe with us. We guarantee every tattoo and piercing that walks out of our shop.
Q: Why do you post mostly traditional style tattoos?
A: We tend to take pictures and post tattoos in the style we prefer to do. While most of us at the shop believe that "traditional tattoos" will last and hold up the best in the skin, you are definitely not limited to just that. All of us at the shop excel in a wide verity of tattooing.
Q: Do you accept walk-ins?
A: Yes! Although it's best to give us a call before you come to insure we have time to get you in.
Q: What is your shop minimum?
A: Our shop minimum is $60. Most tattoos are charged by the piece but larger tattoos requiring multiple session would be charged by the hour. Keep in mind we're all relatively fast and only use the best products the industry has to offer.
Q: I'm under 18, can I get tattooed?
A: Yes. As long as you're at least 16, have an ID that has your picture and birthdate, copy of your birth certificate, our Minor Consent forms filled out and signed by a notary, and your parents with you when you come in. We have our Minor Consent form available online for your convenience. Print it, fill it out, take it to a local notary and then bring it in.
As important as it is for us to do our job and provide a quality tattoo, once it leaves the building it is up to you to take proper care of it. This is a crucial and very important part of the process. We can do an amazing tattoo but without the proper care it will not matter. Below is our highly recommended steps to care for your new tattoo.
-Keep tattoo wrapped for at least one hour, unless instructed otherwise
-Wash with warm water and liquid Dial antibacterial soap, pat dry and wait 5-10 min before moving to the next step...
-Apply a very thin layer of Redemption to your tattoo. Gently rub in like
you would hand lotion. There should not be any globs on your tattoo, just a light shine. (a color and scent free moisturizing hand lotion can be used in place of redemption)
-repeat this process 2-3 times daily untill the tattoo is healed
**Only do this step if instructed by the artist**
For the first 3 nights before bed, wash your tattoo and apply Redemtion/(or lotion). After that, wrap your tattoo in saran wrap. In the morning, Remove wrap and continue with the normal aftercare instructions above.
We do guarantee our work. If any touch ups are needed we will do them free of charge. Just please allow the tattooo to heal for at least one month.
Do not submerge in water for two weeks. Showers are fine.
Keep out of direct sunlight as much as possible for two weeks
Do not pick or scratch your tattoo
If you need to cover your tattoo for work while it is healing we recommend a light layer of redemption (or lotion) and then wrap it in Saran Wrap or covered with a sandwhich bag.
Most importantly... Please do not let anyone else tell you how to care for your new tattoo.
