Stephanie's Tattoo Guidelines and FAQ : PLEASE READ ALL


For your consultation, please have a clear concept/idea of what you’re looking to get tattooed. Bringing visual references is highly recommended, as is having a solid decision on which part of the body you would like the tattoo to be placed. The consultation is free.


In order to book any tattoo appointment a $50 non-refundable deposit will be required, which will be applied on the final session of your tattoo, if applicable. If you need to reschedule your appointment for any reason, 48 hours’ notice is required, otherwise you will forfeit your $50 and will be asked to leave another deposit. Should you reschedule your appointment more than twice under these circumstances, a larger deposit will be asked of you. 


My hourly rate is $150, with a minimum of one hour. That is to say, should you choose to get a piece that takes me less than one hour, you will still be charged the minimum of $150. 


I schedule either two individual 3 hour sessions per day or one 6 hour session, beginning at 10am and the latest available appointment beginning at 2pm. I do not work Sundays or evenings.


If applicable to your tattoo, I will send you your design one day in advance. At this point you may ask for any changes you’d like, being as specific as possible. Should you want more changes after the second draft, you will be asked for an additional $50 drawing fee, which does not go toward the cost of your tattoo.


Cash is the best form of payment, along with Venmo or Zelle. If you do not have any of these things, I do accept card; however you will be charged an additional fee of 3% of the cost of your tattoo.


To prepare for your tattoo please get adequate rest and drink plenty of water during the week prior to your appointment. DO NOT go out drinking or partying the night before your tattoo. DO NOT show up drunk/high/etc. Please eat a decent meal before arriving to your appointment, and feel welcomed to bring snacks/candy/beverages. We have complimentary water, hot tea, and sugary beverages at the shop, as well. Remember to dress comfortably and appropriately for the area on the body in which you are getting tattooed. Please keep in mind that the tattooing process can be messy; it is recommended that you wear something you won’t mind getting ink stains on, should that occur. Also feel free to bring a pillow, blanket, or whatever you need to keep yourself comfortable during the process. If you are a person who finds themselves needing a jacket wherever they are, it is highly recommended that you bring a blanket with you, just in case.


Please refrain from bringing more than one guest with you for your appointment. Your children are adorable, but please do not bring them with you to the studio.


As always, thanks for your interest and support!
