Because the Summer season is extremely busy and dates book out quickly, deposits are required for MOST tattoo appointments.  Deposits are $25 or 20% of the quoted tattoo cost, whichever is greater (see below for examples).  Appointments are confirmed and drawing will begin once the deposit has been received.  Deposits are non-refundable and applied toward the cost of the tattoo if the appointment is held as scheduled. 

There is no cost or deposit required for a consultation appointment.
Once you have received a price quote and deposit cost, purchase an E-Gift Certificate online using the "custom amount" option (or stop by the shop to pay in person).  Be sure to use the name that you scheduled the appointment under when purchasing your gift certificate.  You do not need to bring the certificate with you to your appointment, as it will be automatically credited toward your appointment.
Tattoo deposit examples:
Tattoos quoted at $125 or less - deposit would be $25
Tattoos quoted at $250 - deposit would be $50
Tattoos quoted at $500 - deposit would be $100
