Frequently Asked Questions for TATTOO
Once you’ve selected your preferred artist(s) or if you do not have a preference, you can either stop by the shop or send a detailed email with a description of the design, reference photos, what colors you like, and your preferred dates to schedule (the more flexible you are, the quicker we can schedule you in). This will enable us to process your request quickly and efficiently. We schedule appointments a maximum of three months in advance. Give us 1-3 days to reply your email, please do not send us multiple requests.
Note: Our artists are located in three locations, some do not travel between the three studios.
You must be at least 18 years of age. It is against California Law to tattoo a minor, even with parental consent. In accordance with this law we have a strict NO MINORS POLICY. Not only must you be 18, you have to prove it with a valid State or Federal Photo ID. No exceptions.
It depends on the artist, our minimum charge is $80 per person. Final price is dependent on size, detail of the design, colors and which artist you’ve chosen.
The best way to get an accurate price range is by booking a (free!) consultation with the artist — if not in person, then through a brief detailed email which we prefer the most. In order for us to quote your idea, we need to consider the subject, size, placement on the body, detail, colors, etc.
You are also welcome to come into the shop and talk to one of our managers or artists, if they’re available. We’re always more than happy to help get you the information you need.
Your tattoo artist will prepare the design 1-3 days prior to your appointment date or will work with you on the design at your appointment before tattooing. If necessary, the artist will edit the design for you, until you are satisfied.

Yes, if you do not have a prefer artist, you are very welcome to do a walk-in section. Some of our artist are not accepting walk-ins and they are usually booked a few weeks in advance. We will always do our best to accommodate all your request.
To be honest, yes, but it is totally bearable! Each person has a different pain tolerance, and different body placement feels differently. Speaking from experience, most of our clients scare themselves too much before coming in, and they always go “Oh, this is not that bad” afterwards. Just stay calm and relax!
It usually takes two weeks to “heal,” although it takes longer for the skin to fully regenerate. It is not advisable to do sports, sunbath or swim after tattooing. Natural tattooed skin healing process usually takes 7-28 days. Even in the case where the visual look of the tattoo looks healed, the natural protective skin barrier recovery period continues for another three to four weeks.
Every shop has its own recommended care methods. You will be given an instruction note after. Please do not hesitate to ask if you have any question. One who follows tattooed skin aftercare instructions poorly, sooner or later will not be happy about it. During the healing progress, it happened that the color of the tattoo partially faded away to the extent that some areas of the skin may even get damaged. Very subtle lines thereby could become wider than before. For others, the entire tattoo could fade away prematurely. The skincare really plays a very, very important role in the final result. Also, you should never forget that you and your artist have invested a lot of effort and time in order to provide you the best possible result, so please follow the instructions! In addition, we do offer one time FREE touch-up for our clients within three months if necessary.

We recommend that you eat and rest well before you come in, and remember to stay hydrated. If you start to feel woozy, have something sweet. Sugar is the key in this situation. It’s best not to party the night before because alcohol can increase bleeding for up to 24 hours. Blood also dilutes our pigments, affecting both the appearance of your tattoo as well as the healing process.
Frequently Asked Questions for PIERCING
We only use needle to pierce our clients. We use single-use, disposable piercing needles and aseptic technique—the same as your dentist. Jewelry is sterilized prior to insertion, and any other implements used (forceps, etc.) are sterilized as well.
The initial jewelry should be left in for the duration of the healing period, but you can change your jewelry as soon as it is healed. For earlobes, this means six to eight weeks; for cartilage, six to twelve months, minimum.
Having a full meal and stay hydrated before getting pierced is a good idea because it will help keep your blood sugar steady, according to Secret Ink. Low blood sugar could lead you to feel dizzy or even faint during the piercing, which is not ideal.
Piercing guns cannot be effectively sterilized, and there are documented cases of disease transmission from piercing guns. Getting your ear cartilage pierced with a gun can be especially dangerous and carry a risk of permanent damage.
We offer earlobe piercings ONLY for children age 9-14 years old. 14 years and up offers most of the piercing services.
