HOW WE WORK
We do custom tattoos by appointment only, including for consultations.
Our artists stay booked out well in advance so we are unable to accommodate walk ins.

ANSWERS TO OUR MOST-ASKED QUESTIONS:
DO YOU ACCEPT WALK-INS?
Everything is done by appointment only, including your initial consultation with an artist. Our artists stay consistently booked anywhere from several weeks to several months in advance, so we schedule everything to minimize interruptions during appointments. We will book as far into the future as you are willing to plan, so feel free to schedule way in advance, especially if you are traveling in from out of town.
We also schedule consultations. Most are done as a phone call, and we can usually have you talking to an artist within a week of you initially contacting us as your schedule accommodates. If you have a specific artist you'd like to work with please note that when you fill out the form. If you don't have a specific artist in mind, that's ok. We're happy to suggest which of our talented artists we think will be a good fit. We do need to gather a bit of info to help determine that, so please fill out our form including as much detail as possible of what you are hoping to get, including size, placement, style, and so on.
We believe good art is worth the wait!
DO YOU DO PIERCINGS?
No, at this time we only offer tattoos.
WILL YOU TATTOO SOMEONE UNDER 18?
Sorry, no, we will not tattoo anyone under the age of 18, whether you have parental consent or not. We do offer a $25 discount off your first tattoo with us if you schedule on or near your 18th birthday. Please mention that in the form when you reach out.
HOW MUCH WILL THE TATTOO COST?
Tattoos are priced based on the amount of time that they will take to complete. Each artist has a different hourly rate. We offer FREE, no obligation consultations in which the artist will go into much more detail for you based on the design, size and placement and be able to give you an accurate price estimate. The absolute minimum price for any tattoo in the shop (even if it's just a dot) is $150.
DO YOU OFFER GIFT CERTIFICATES?
Yes, we do. We can make them up for you in any dollar amount you would like up to $1000. Please fill out the appointment form and in the notes/comments section let us know how much you would like the gift card amount to be, and if you want to pick it up or have it mailed to you (no charge for mailing in USA). If you want it mailed please also provide your address. We will send you a secure link to pay for the certificate online, and once it is paid you can either pick it up in person the next day or we will mail it out to you.
CAN I GET TATTOOED AT THE SAME TIME AS MY FRIEND/HUSBAND/SISTER/GROUP ETC?
The short answer is yes; the longer answer is: it depends on how many are in your group and how far in advance you plan. We always recommend planning as far ahead of time as you can since many of our artists are booked out for weeks or even months in advance. If you're in town just for a day or two and decide to spontaneously to get a tattoo, 99.99999% we will not be able to get you in.
If you are able to be more flexible with your timing we can definitely accommodate a group. In general it is easier for a pair/group to get back-to-back appointments on the same day with one artist than it is to get appointments at the same time with two different artists. To avoid confusion on our end (it happens) we recommend that you designate one person to be the point person for your group, and have that person fill out the online form with their contact info. In the notes please let us know how many people want to get tattooed, if you want the same or different artists, and if you have a date in mind, along with all the other info like what/where/style etc. for each person. We will go from there and help you coordinate consultations for everyone, determine if you can all get your tattoo from the same artists or different artists, and give you options on times.
DO YOU DO FRIDAY THE 13TH OR OTHER SPECIALS?
We never do Friday the 13th specials, due to the fact that by the time a Friday the 13th rolls around all our artists have already booked the slots weeks or months prior.
We do occasionally do special fundraising events for various charities and causes that are important to us. They will always be posted on the webpage well in advance and announced on our social media pages. Follow us on Instagram to stay up to date with any promotions.
OTHER THINGS TO KNOW:
Our new location is 100% smoke free, including the parking areas.
The vast majority of our inks are vegan certified, as well as our stencil products. Some of our artists use tattoo glide that contains beeswax, and the aftercare lotion that we supply also contains beeswax. If you would like everything to be fully vegan please let your artist know during the consultation and we will accommodate you, we do have a vegan option available by request.
We will provide you everything you need to take care of your new tattoo, so please don't go out and buy a bunch of fancy stuff, it's included. Your artist will give you very detailed instructions on the healing process and answer all your questions to be sure you know what to expect.
EXTRA PEOPLE IN THE SHOP
We only allow the person being tattooed in the shop, please do not bring a guest with you as we will have to ask them to wait elsewhere, and especially please don't bring children. Shop is 18+ only.
We love first timers and our artists have a lot of experience prepping people for what to expect. Please take advantage of the consultation to make yourself fully comfortable with the process before you schedule. There is absolutely no cost to talk to an artist and no obligation to book, so please take your time and ask all the questions you need to feel confident in moving forward with the tattoo.
We believe tattoos are for everyone and welcome hearing your ideas, no matter how big or small the tattoo may be or if someone else told you it was silly. Please talk to us and let our artists guide you to make your tattoo the best piece of art it can be, and a good experience from start to finish. We welcome all ages (18 and older - our current record holder for oldest client getting a first tattoo is 86!!)
We don't discriminate against any race, gender, sexual orientation, religious background. We wholeheartedly support members of the LGBTQIA community. We care about you and your ideas, and making your tattoo experience great. If you want a tattoo, please reach out. Let's chat.
WITH THAT SAID, there are a few lines in the sand over which we do not cross, including but not limited to:
- The customer is intoxicated, belligerent, or behaving in an erratic or violent manner or is harassing any shop employee or another guest of the shop.
- Anyone under the age of 18. We know it is technically legal in Utah to get a tattoo with parental permission but we believe getting tattooed at a younger age will lead to regret because you are still growing physically and mentally. Don't get something you'll have to pay to cover up later. Wait and come see us on your 18th birthday and we'll give you a $25 gift certificate toward your tattoo!
- We will not tattoo with anything other than approved commercially distributed tattoo pigments. That means no mixing in of ashes or any other foreign materials.
- We're all for freedom of expression, and a tattoo is a great way to express yourself. But if you ask for a design that promotes hatred, violence, or intolerance toward any individual or group we reserve the right to turn down the work. It's your tattoo, but it's our reputation. We wholeheartedly support the 1st Amendment and your right to express yourself however you like, but we also reserve our right to not have our shop or artists' names associated with those kind of images.
STILL HAVE A QUESTION WE DIDN'T ANSWER?
