What should I do while getting tattooed?
You can bring a headset to listen to music, or bring a friend to talk to. BY ALL MEANS,
sit STILL and DO NOT carry on a conversation with your artist, this is how mistakes are made.
What are your shop hours?
The shop hours are :
Tues – Sat : 12pm – 6pm
Sun : By appointment only.
Mon : By appointment only.
Later hours available by appointment only.
Where are you located?

No, we only tattoo.
What do I need to get tattooed?
The state of Florida requires that you have a government issued photo ID in order to get tattooed. If you don’t have your ID, we can accept your birth certificate and a school ID. Basically, we need a government document with your birth date, and photo verification that it is you. Driver’s license, passport, military ID, etc. We also have a release form that must be filled out before getting tattooed.
I am under 18, can I get tattooed?
Yes, but we are very strict on what we will tattoo on a minor. No visible tattoos(forearms, necks, hands) and no tattoos in private areas (bikini zone or high up on the ribs.) In order to get tattooed you must have a form notarized THE DAY OF your tattoo. You can print one out at home here or come in to the shop and pick one up. The DAY OF the tattoo, your parent or guardian must accompany you. We will require both your ID as well as your parent or guardian’s. Your parent or guardian must approve of the design as well as the placement of the design before we begin tattooing. We know this is strict, but if you can’t wait to get your tattoo, we want to make sure we are protected.
Do you need an appointment, or can I walk in?
Yes, we take walk-ins all day, but appointments are always preferred. You can make them by calling us at (727) 953-7170. We take walk ins whenever possible, if you prefer that method. However, for custom tattoos, you will possibly need to come in for a consultation and leave a deposit first before the actual tattoo session.
Why leave a deposit?
People often don’t realize the amount of planning that goes into drawing a custom tattoo. Larger tattoos, can take an artist hours to draw before you show up to get it tattooed. For that reason, we require a NON-REFUNDABLE deposit of $50-100 in order to schedule certain appointments. The deposit will come off the price of your tattoo. This ensures that if you don’t show up, the artist will be compensated for his/her time and effort.
How busy are your artists?
It depends. Some artists stay booked out a month or two in advance, some are more easily accessible, and some are able to take same day walk ins.
What if I can’t make my appointment?
Call within 24 of your Appt. and your deposit will be held for 30 days for you to re-schedule. If you call the same day of your Appt. your deposit will be held for 7 days to reschedule. NO EXCEPTIONS
What is your shop minimum?
Our minimum is $50. We absolutely WILL NOT tattoo for anything less than that. If you are working with a budget, let the artist know and we can draw your design accordingly.
Do you only accept cash?
We accept cash as well as credit cards. We also offer gift certificates.
Do you do coverups?
Yes we do. This requires a face to face consultation with an artist to make sure the coverup is possible.
Do you rework old tattoos?
Yes, we do. This also requires as face to face consultation. With old tattoos, sometimes coverup is the way to go. If we can salvage it, we definitely will, but we will also be honest if it can not be saved.
Do you allow children?
We allow children in the lobby, but absolutely no children in the tattooing areas. We spray chemicals, and have sharp instruments that could possibly hurt your child. Also, a screaming child is very distracting when we are trying to tattoo. Please keep them in the lobby and make sure someone is watching them.
Are there any kind of tattoos you won’t do?
We don’t do UV(blacklight) tattoos. We also don’t do all white tattoos. White tattoos can often turn a yellowish color that looks awful. We do not do henna, and we do not do temporary tattoos.
