    HOW OLD DO I HAVE TO BE TO GET A TATTOO?

    You need to be at least 18 years old to get tattooed. NO exceptions...even with parental approval. A valid form of ID will be required.

    CAN I BOOK AN APPOINTMENT OVER THE PHONE OR BY EMAIL?

    The answer is no. You must come into the shop during regular business hours to book all appointments. Please bring any reference material you have. This could be an image from the internet, a photo, drawing or even a favourite t-shirt. Our artists will work with you to create a piece of art. Please print all images on paper to bring them in. No smart phone or ipad images.

    DO I NEED TO LEAVE A DEPOSIT?

    Yes. All appointments require a deposit of $100+ gst. This deposit is a booking fee and will be kept to hold your appointment. The deposit amount will come off the price of the tattoo during your last hour of tattoo time when the project is completed.
    *Please note that all deposits are NON-REFUNDABLE. Should you need to reschedule your appointment, you may do so with 72 HOURS notice. Failure to give us sufficient notice will result in forfeiting your deposit and new one will be required for any future bookings.

    WHAT IF I LIVE OUT OF TOWN?

    We do allow those who live outside the city to book appointments without coming into the shop. A combination of email correspondence, phone calls and a deposit in the form of a money order or e-transfer (sorry, no cheques) , will allow you to book an appointment. Should you have any questions about this process, please call our shop manager, George @ 403-282-8181.

    DO YOU SELL GIFT CERTIFICATES?

    Yes. Gift certificates are available at the reception desk anytime during regular business hours.

    -Each autoclave load is tested with comply strips to ensure proper sterilization conditions have been met.
