Typically beginning at $60 (under $300 tattoo), $100 ($350-$600 tattoo), $200 ($650+)
For work requiring multiple sessions, the deposit will be applied to your last session.
all tattoo Deposits are non-refundable.
If you’re unable to make your appointment, please call the studio and speak to one of our front staff directly. Any other form of communication (such as Facebook, Instagram or any other form of Social Media) is not considered a valid form of communication, which will result in a forfeiting of your deposit.
