T&Cs and FAQs

Terms and conditions may change, and we will try to give notice where possible.

If you have any questions, don't hesitate to contact us.

These FAQs may answer some of your questions, but we hope they also encourage you to really think about what you want and why you want it.

Some of you may know nothing about tattoos, so you should always feel free to ask, no matter how silly it may seem.

Will it hurt?

Yes. Some places more than others, and depending on the size and detail of your design. It's rarely ever as painful as you think it's going to be.


If I write my 16 year old a letter of consent, can they have a tattoo?

No chance. You have to be 18 years old to have a tattoo in this country, and in most others. No ifs, ands, or buts.


Can you numb my skin first?

No, we can't, But there are anaethestic creams available, namely Emla, which you can purchase from most chemists, and will need to be applied at least a few hours before your appointment for it to work. read the instructions carefully, or pop in for a chat about it before hand.


How much for a skull?

We can't give you quotes for imaginary designs. Prices are dependant on size, detail, colour or black and grey, etc.

We are more than happy to draw something up, and then give you a quote, but don't be surprised if we give you a VERY rough quote based on a rough idea of what you want.
