FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Answers to Your Questions
DO YOU SELL ALL THE AFTERCARE PRODUCTS I’LL NEED?
Yes, we sell Butterluxe Butter and soap for tattoo aftercare.
Your artist will go through the aftercare with you once your tattoo is finished, so pick your aftercare up before leaving. Prices start from just £3.
I WANT A TATTOO BUT I’M ON A LIMITED BUDGET. HOW DO YOU DETERMINE PRICING?
The price of a tattoo is determined by the size of the design, the position on your body and how long the tattoo is going to take to complete.
Check out the Pricing & Aftercare page for more information on our pricing.
If you have a specific budget that you are looking to stick to, let us know when enquiring so we can work with you on ideas to achieve the tattoo you want. We do offer free consultations (by appointment only) so we can also discuss in person.
DO I HAVE TO PAY A DEPOSIT TO CONFIRM MY APPOINTMENT?
Yes. A 50% deposit is required to secure your appointment for tattoos.
All deposits are non-refundable.
If you are unable to make it to your appointment, 48 hours notice is required for us to reschedule without loss of deposit.
DO YOU DO WALK INS OR DO I HAVE TO MAKE AN APPOINTMENT?
We work on an appointment only basis, no walk ins.
Get in touch via our Contact Us page to discuss and book an appointment.
HOW MUCH IS A SLEEVE AND CAN I DO IT IN SESSIONS?
We work on an hourly rate for tattoos so we are not able to provide a price for a "sleeve" as there are a number of factors that would contribute to the cost. Such as whether it's a half sleeve on an arm or leg, full sleeve, colour or black and grey etc.
We can do sleeve work in sessions, to work to a budget or how long you want/are able to sit for.
If you are looking to have a sleeve started, get in touch to book a consultation.
DO TATTOOS HURT?
Yes. The amount of pain you will experience depends on your personal pain threshold and the part of your body you are having a tattoo on.
CAN I BRING SOMEONE WITH ME?
No. When attending your appointment you must come alone.
Noone under the age of 18 is permitted in the studio.
CAN I USE NUMBING CREAM?
Yes, you can use numbing cream. If you are planning on using it, please speak to us when booking to discuss the best options and process in order to get the most out of it.
WHEN I BOOK MY APPOINTMENT, DO I GET TO CHOSE MY PREFERRED ARTIST?
Yes. However, this will depend on availability. If your preferred artist is not available on the day you would like your appointment, we will offer you another artist or let you know the next available appointment date and time.
I CAN'T FIND ANYTHING I LIKE BUT HAVE LOTS OF IDEAS FOR A TATTOO. CAN YOU DESIGN SOMETHING FOR ME?
Yes. We can design tattoos for you based on ideas you have but haven't found any reference images that are similar to what you are looking for.
We take a £50 drawing payment, to do this and will include one change of the design. If you go ahead with the design, the £50 payment is deducted from the final cost of your tattoo. If you don't, the payment covers the artists time.
DO YOU SELL GIFT VOUCHERS?
Yes. We have gift vouchers available to purchase in the studio or we can post out for an additional fee.
CAN I HAVE A BATH OR SHOWER AFTER HAVING A TATTOO?
Yes. You can shower and bath as normal, however, after having a tattoo done we do not advise you to soak the area so whilst healing it's best to shower, if possible.
