“If you prick us, do we not bleed? If you tickle us, do we not laugh? If you poison us, do we not die?” -WS

We are welcoming walk-ins when artists are available! 
The club is open 11am-5pm Wednesday-Saturday.
Our hours however depend on when an artist is present doing a tattoo, so please call the shop at
253-355-8472 before stopping by.

Yes, a nonrefundable deposit is required before making your appointment.

Meg charges $100 per piece.


No.


On a case by case basis, but typically, no. Please set up a consultation to see if it's something the artist is willing to take on.


Do not expect to see your design until the day of your appointment. 


Unfortunately, a tattoo shop is not the safest place for the little ones. 


Preferably not, as bringing someone can be a distraction for you and the artist. If you do bring someone, they will not be allowed in the artist station and will be seated in a separate waiting area.


If you're a drinker, the night before the tattoo is not the best time to overdo it. 

Start hydrating the night before, make sure you get plenty of rest the morning of. 

Have a nice square meal at least a couple hours prior to the appointment.

Bring snacks and water.

Please make sure your hygiene is in order considering your closeness to the artist for an extended period of time.


Leave the bandage on for at least a couple of hours. Once you take it off, gently wash the tattoo with warm water and an antimicrobial or antibacterial soap. When clean, keep it dry for the rest of that night.

After a couple days of keeping it clean and dry, start using a moisturizer. We recommend Aveeno lotion non-additive. If you want to use a medicated ointment use Aquaphor (a little goes a long way and you should only use that for a couple days then switch to a good non-additive lotion for the duration of the healing process).

Stay out of the sun and do not submerge your tattoo in any water for at least 2 weeks.

If you have animals, protect the tattoo from being accidentally scratched or licked.


YOU'RE GONNA DIE! 

Just kidding, this is totally normal and part of the healing process. The outer layer of the skin is renewing and healing itself, thus peeling the old layer away. Itching can also happen during healing.

Do not assist in the peeling!

Do not itch your tattoo!

Itching could cause serious damage, an infection, or even ruin a fresh tattoo. 


Life happens, we ask that you please give the artist at least 24 hour notice.
