DEPOSIT AND APPOINTMENT AGREEMENT
 
  • To schedule a tattoo appointment all clients are required to stop in the shop for an in person consultation with an artist.
  • Based on the amount of work involved a deposit of $60 to $500 is taken to hold all tattoo appointments. THIS DEPOSIT IS 100% NON REFUNDABLE and will come off the price of your finished tattoo. If your tattoo requires multiple sessions and appointments, the deposit will carry forward and be taken off the final session. Deposits are taken to cover the tattoo artists time if you do not show up for your scheduled appointment.
  • Our computer system will email you a confirmation of your tattoo appointment.  Please reconfirm by replying to the message.
  • You MUST be 18 years of age to be tattooed in the State of Illinois and all clients must provide a Government issued photo ID with a birthday such as Drivers License, State ID, Illinois Gun Card or Passport.  Absolutely no traffic tickets, birth certificates or school ID's will be accepted.
  • Some artists have a longer waiting period than others due to higher demands for their work.  Please realize that each artist is only one person and can only do a certain amount of work in one day.  Some artists may be unavailable for new appointments from time to time depending on their workload.
  • Please be on time, clean and sober. 
  • Do not consume alcohol at least 8 hours before your appointment time as it thins your blood.
  • Hangovers decrease energy and increase sensitivity during the tattoo procedure.
  • Please eat something substantial in the 4 hours before your tattoo appointment. This will give you more energy and prevent fainting. You can bring snacks and drinks to your appointment.
  • All cell phones must be turned off during your appointment to prevent distractions and lessen the chance of you moving and causing mistakes.
  • Moisturize the area that is going to be tattooed for up to 2 weeks prior. This will make the area easier to tattoo and produces better work.
  • Anyone who is pregnant or nursing will not be tattooed.
  • Each client is allowed one person in the tattoo room with them at a time.  This is not a spectator sport.  It is minor surgery that requires quiet, calmness and concentration in order to give you the best quality artwork possible.
  • Please note there can be circumstances where your artist may be running behind. We will do our best to let you know before you arrive.
  •  Your appointment will be canceled and your deposit will be FORFEITED if the above conditions are not met/agreed to or for any of the following reasons:
  • If you are more than 15 minutes late for your appointment without notifying us by phone. 
  • If you do not provide us with at LEAST 3 DAY/72 HOURS CANCELLATION OR REBOOKING NOTICE
  • If you do not have sufficient government issued photo ID to prove you are over 18 years of age, even if it is not requested at the time of booking your appointment.
  • If you miss your scheduled appointment time or show up on a different date or wrong time.
  •  Again, DEPOSITS ARE 100% NON REFUNDABLE from the time of booking. The deposit will come off the final price of your tattoo but will be kept to cover the tattoo artists time/work if you choose not to get tattooed.
