Deposit Terms and Conditions
Please read before leaving a deposit.
Most of our tattoo appointments are pre-booked to allow our artists time to draw your design to our high shop standards. Walk-ins are possible if the design is easy enough and one of our artists still has time left in the day. To see if a walk in is possible, please call the shop at 403-228-6767 on the day you are looking at coming down.
All pre-booked tattoo appointments require a deposit to hold the appointment time and allow the artist to start the drawing process. All tattoo deposits are non-refundable to cover time spent/lost by the artists.
All deposits come off the total price of your tattoo. Deposits are carried over to each subsequent session until the piece is finished to reduce the amount of no-shows.
Please research which artist you would like to get tattoo work from by looking at the portfolios on our site. If you match the tattoo ideas you like on our site with the artist your tattoo will turn out as you planned. Each artist has a certain style to their work which is going to be relayed in the design you get from them.
Some artists have a longer waiting period than others due to higher demands for their work. Please realize that each artist is only one person and can only do a certain amount of work in one day. Some artists may be unavailable for new appointments from time to time depending on their workload.
Some artists are unavailable to do smaller designs. These artists are booked each day with either one or two large pieces. Some of the artists are at the shop 12-16 hours a day preparing and tattooing their large scale work. This obviously leaves no time for smaller pieces to be "squeezed in". These artists also are quite selective in the pieces they do as to always be pushing themselves artistically and remain on the cutting edge of the tattoo scene in Canada and everywhere else. Please do not be offended if an artist you selected cannot fit your piece into their schedule as another artist at the shop will be recommended to you who can do an equally great piece. Artists currently doing large scale custom pieces are Steve, Jimmy and Johnny. That being said, if you are interested in an amazing cutting edge custom piece, feel free to contact one of these artists through their email on the contact page.
-Please eat well before your tattoo appointment. Those that don't eat beforehand run the chance of running out of energy and increasing their chance of not feeling well or passing out.
-Only the person getting tattooed is allowed back in the procedure area. This is for health reasons as well as safety as we can have 12 artists and 12 clients in on busy days. There is just no room left for 12 visitors. Visitors can distract the artist which can affect the outcome of your work.
-Please shower before coming in to get tattooed. This can distract your artist who may rush just to get you on your way a little faster.
-Please call if you need to rebook or cancel. A heads up is appreciated as we can book in someone else or work on artwork if we know you can't make your appointment. We require 72 hours notice on rebooking or cancellations or your deposit will be forfeited.
-Please don't wear your favorite piece of clothing to your appointment. Even though we try our best to protect clothing, contamination can happen and tattoo ink does not come out of clothing very easily.
-Please be patient. While we try to stay on top of drawings and appointments, sometimes a cancellation is needed if the artist is not happy with the artwork or becomes sick. Please remember artists are only one person and can only do so much work and sometimes get run down. We do not want to tattoo you if we are not completely happy with the artwork or are not feeling well. Your tattoo is with you for life and should be the best it can possibly be.
-Please ensure an open schedule around your tattoo appointment. Artists sometimes fall behind and things sometimes take longer than expected. Also please try to avoid getting tattooed right before a vacation where you will be in the sun or water. You will need at least six weeks healing time before you can expose your tattoo to the elements.
-We do not copy tattoos. We are a full custom tattoo studio and will draw up a design for you based on your ideas. We can use pictures of other peoples tattoos you bring in for a starting point but will not do it exactly as it is in the picture you give us. We would prefer you had a great original piece that is all your own rather than copying someone elses hard work.
PLEASE NOTE BEFORE LEAVING A DEPOSIT MAKE SURE TO CALL THE SHOP FIRST TO MAKE SURE WE ARE ABLE TO TATTOO WHAT IT IS THAT YOU WOULD LIKE AS WELL AS THE TIME YOU WERE LOOKING FOR
