First Time Getting Tattooed?
There’s a first time for everyone. Check out our First Time Getting a Tattoo? page to familiarize yourself with the process of tattooing and our shop’s operation.
Meet and Greet
We recommend coming by the shop to make a tattoo appointment with the artist of your choice. Otherwise, you’re welcome to call us at 630-393-2770 and leave your contact information so they can get back to you when they are available.
Appointments & Walk-Ins
All appointments require an $80.00, non-refundable deposit, though larger pieces may be more. The deposit is subtracted from the total cost of the tattoo.
If you’re looking to get a small tattoo that may not need the prep work of a larger, more intricate one, we recommend just walking in on a Friday or Saturday since we have artists working on a first-come-first-served basis. Chances are, you can walk in at your leisure and get a tattoo right then and there depending on their availability.
The shop minimum is $80. Tattoos that can be completed in one session are priced by the piece. Multi-session tattoos are possibly priced by the hour depending on the artists time and resources involved.
Not all pricing can be quantified by the elapsed tattooing time: the intricacy of the design, the placement on the body, and the length of your sessions also factor into the price of your tattoo. Please see the Tattoo Pricing & Design page for more details.
How Soon Can I Get Tattooed?
It all depends on how our schedules sync up with your availability. Once we have a clear idea of what you'd like to get tattooed, it doesn't take very long to get a design drawn up. We’re usually booked on a day's notice but sometimes we have weird gaps in our schedules so it never hurts to ask! The sooner, the better!
You must be at least 18 years old to be tattooed. According to Illinois body art code, any person who tattoos or offers to tattoo anyone under the age of 18 years is guilty of a misdemeanor. Regardless of parental consent.
Note: Children (under 18) are not allowed in the studio. Please find alternative care arrangements when receiving your tattoo or attending a consultation session.
