I HAVE AN IDEA OF A TATTOO I'M WANTING, WHAT DO I DO TO START THE PROCESS?
We encourage you to look at all the artists' portfolio's and choose the artist that best suites your style. After you have choosen an artist you can talk with them and discuss your idea.
do i need to bring in a picture?
The artist will draw your tattoo but they always appreciate as much reference as you can bring. This helps them understand exactly what you are (or are not) looking for.
how do i schedule an appointment?
You must come into Sykotic Ink and talk to your artist to schedule an appointment. This allows them to estimate the amount of time needed to complete your new tattoo and to give an accurate estimate of the total cost. Please make sure you have a valid State Issued I.D. We require a $60. deposit, which will be applied to your tattoo the day of your appoinment.
what if a touch up is needed?
Sykotic Ink artist's take pride in and guarantee their work. If your tattoo needs any touch up after it's completely healed please call your artist and they will schedule a time, free of charge. Please allow 4 weeks before scheduling.
how long does a sleeve or back piece take?
Larger pieces of that nature are usually done in sessions. Depending on your piece, your artist will let you know how many sessions are required and how long each session will be.
We can also break down sessions to fit your budget. A minimum 3 hour session is required.
should i tip, and if so, how much?
Tipping is always appreciated. You should tip whatever you feel is appropriate for your new beautiful piece of artwork.
