Q: Do you take walk-ins for tattoos or piercings?
A: All piercings are on a walk-in basis. Walk-ins for tattoos are based on availability that day. Come by or give us a call and we can check for you. To guarantee a time that works best for you, please book an appointment.
Q: How much are piercings?
A: Pricing for piercings vary, give us a call and we can give you the latest price. We occasionally have piercing specials, ask us about them.
Q: How much are tattoos?
A: Quotes for all tattoos differ. Pricing depends on the size, details, location and how long it will take. It is very hard to gauge the price of a tattoo without having a consultation with an Artist first. We charge hourly or by the session. Half Day and Full Day Rates are a better deal for larger pieces. Quotes we give are competitive market prices based on Quality Work. If you have a budget, talk with your Artist and see what options are available. If your design is simple give us a call or email and we can give you our best ballpark estimate. A final quote will then be given when you come in and talk to an Artist. Our shop minimum is $100. **Finger Tattoo pricing exceeds shop minimum pricing because this location requires multiple touch-ups**
Q: What is a Tattoo Consultation?
A: Tattoo Consultations are FREE, fairly quick and important if you have a specific design or idea. Consultations are with an Artist and will go over the details of your design, size, location and placement, this will also help determine the overall price. Our studio manager will help find you the best artist available for your design. If there is an artist you already have in mind, you can come in or give us a call to make sure that the artist you request is working that day. If the artist is tattooing when you come in, there will be a small wait for the artist to take a break and talk to you from 10-20 minutes. After the consultation you can book your appointment. If you live far away, give us a call or email us and we can figure out your options.
Q: Will my design or idea work for a tattoo
A: We welcome all ideas but not all designs and ideas will work as a tattoo. Some designs may look good on paper or on your screen but not for skin. The goal of our artist is to make sure that you're happy and that your design will look great once it is done and healed several years later. Some other shops may agree with you, take your money and might pull it off, but in a few years after your skin has aged and stretched it will not be recognizable or distorted. Our expert artists know the limitations of the skin and what it will look like several years later. We would rather give you our expert advice and recommendation then just take your money. We take pride in every tattoo we produce and we want to make sure you are happy not just when you leave but for many years. Your consultation will go over all your options in detail.
Q: How do I book an appointment?
A: Booking an appointment requires a deposit that will guarantee a time slot with your Artist. To book an appointment come to Inkies and get a consultation first. If you have already spoken to an Artist, come in and drop a deposit to secure your time and date. If you live far away, give us a call or email and we can figure out your options.
Q: How much are deposits?
A: Deposits range from $50-$200 based on the quote of your tattoo. Your deposit will go towards the price of your tattoo. If your deposit is $100 and your tattoo cost $300, you will only pay $200 upon completion. If your tattoo is not finished, your deposit will roll over to your next appointment and the price for that day will be due. To reschedule your appointment you must give us 72-hour notice or your deposit may be forfeited. All Deposits are final and Non-Refundable. The deposit system is used throughout the tattoo industry to ensure business and appointments are taken seriously for both the Artist and the Clients.
Q: Do you accept credit cards?
A: We are a CASH ONLY studio but you can use your Credit Card online by purchasing a Gift Certificate prior to your appointment. There is an ATM inside Inkies for your convenience. Also Wells Fargo and Chase are less then a block away.
