If you’re 16-18 years old and want a tattoo, you can get one with your parent’s or guardian’s supervision.

They’ll need to fill out a waiver form, and we’ll take a photo of both your IDs. We’ve got you covered!

To keep everyone in the studio safe, we kindly ask you to limit the number of people who accompany you to your appointment.

Please do not bring children under 16 years old, as their presence may compromise the safety of everyone.

We kindly request that clients do not bring children to the studio. A tattoo studio can be an unsafe environment for kids, and we prioritize the safety of all our visitors.

We understand the challenges of arranging childcare, so if you’re unable to find someone to look after your child during your appointment, please contact us to reschedule for a more suitable time.

In short, yes. However, we do not recommend and cannot guarantee them.

Or you can follow our guidelines based on your tattoo artist selected method of healing:

For optimal tattoo healing and maintenance, we recommend the following products:

  • Moisturizing Cream: We highly recommend Hustle Butter, which is the same cream our artists use during tattoo sessions. This ensures a low likelihood of allergic reactions. You can purchase one in the studio. Other alternatives are Curel, CeraVe, and Lubriderm.
  • Soap: We recommend using PurSan, which is also available for purchase at our studio. Alternatively, Ivory or Dove bar soaps are good options. Please make sure any soap used is unscented.
  • Sunscreen: To protect your tattoo from sun damage, we suggest using Balm Tattoo sunscreen or any sunscreen with an SPF of 50-100.

Please remember, proper aftercare is crucial for the longevity and vibrancy of your tattoo.

Generally, a tattoo takes about 4โ€“8 weeks to heal. This timeline can vary depending on the size of the tattoo and your individual health conditions. Always remember, everyone’s body heals at a different pace, and it’s important to follow all aftercare instructions to ensure your tattoo heals properly.

We do offer touch-up services. The cost for a touch-up ranges from $40 to $100+HST, and it depends on the size of the tattoo and the reasons for the loss of ink, which is at the discretion of the tattoo artist.

Please note that touch-ups should be scheduled within a reasonable timeframe after your tattoo has fully healed, typically around six weeks. If a significant amount of time has passed since your last session โ€” three (3), six (6), or twelve (12) months depending on the size of the tattoo โ€” it may be classified as a new tattoo rather than a touch-up.

We strongly advise against getting a tattoo during pregnancy or while nursing. The process of getting a tattoo can place stress on your body, which could potentially impact both you and your baby. It’s also possible that this stress could affect the quality of breast milk. Your wellbeing and the health of your little one are paramount. Consult with your healthcare provider for personalized advice.

Yes, you can. We want to assure you that all the equipment we use in our studio, including gloves, is latex-free.

However, we rely on the information provided by our suppliers and manufacturers regarding the latex content in their products. While we take every possible measure to ensure that our equipment is latex-free, we encourage our clients to share any allergy concerns with us prior to their appointment.

We can then discuss any additional precautions that may need to be taken. This collaborative approach helps us to provide a safe and comfortable tattooing experience for everyone.

Generally, no. While a person in a wheelchair can enter the studio and use the washrooms, we do not have accessible handles or buttons for emergency help.

This is something we plan to address in the future.
