Working out what you want
It is best to come into the studio with a good idea of what you are interested in getting done. If you have a preferred tattoo design bring this along to the studio. If you need some inspiration you are welcome to browse through the many designs available at the studio.
For custom designs, it is best to bring in as much reference material as possible for the tattooist to work with in drawing up your design. This may include sketches, photos and pictures sourced from magazines or the Internet.
To make an appointment for a free consultation please call the studio or just drop by.
Consultation with the Tattoo Artist
At the consultation, the tattoo artist will discuss your ideas and designs and ask a series of questions related to the style, size and positioning of the tattoo.
Based on this information, the artist will draw up the design for your approval. A $50 drawing fee will apply to large or complex designs.
