Larger, or more detailed pieces  will require a consultation before your first tattooing session. This can be arranged when making your enquiry.

Deposits & Cancellations

All deposits must be paid in full prior to your appointment. This will then be deducted from the final cost of your completed work.
If you need to cancel or move your appointment, this must be done 7 days before. Deposits are transferable but non refundable.


Tattoos are charged by the hour, so a rough estimate on how long the piece will take can be given. However as the complexity and size of the tattoo can always change during the appointment these are estimates.

If you would like an estimate before hand please ask. A full day session from 11.00-5.30 is charged at £300.

Viewing design

Please understand we do not send designs ahead of your tattoo as they will be created the week of the appointment, some times with the client during the appointment or before ahead of the appointment. If there are any changes you wish you make to your design can be made at the start of your appointment.


All relevant information will be provided throughout the tattooing process but if you wish to purchase any products prior to your appointment we recommend 'Bepanthen Nappy Ointment' for immediate care and 'Palmers Coco Butter' for long term care.

Appointment preperation

Please make sure you are hydrated and have eaten at least 2 hours before you arrive for your appointment. It is also recommended that you avoid alcohol up to 24hrs ahead your tattoo.
Please remove any make-up or fake tan from the area you'll be tattooed.


It is your responsibility to let the studio know if you are running late. If you arrive more than 30 minutes late without notifying the shop ahead of time, you will be considered a no show and you will loose your appointment.


Walk ins are available but to avoid disappointment we always recommend booking in first.

Consent form

A consent form must be completed at the start of your session, and a form of ID must be presented. We advise that you read through it here, ahead of your appointment.

Payment method

All payments can be made with cash or through bank transfer.
