• How much does a tattoo cost?
    Please call the shop for pricing info.  Prices vary depending on complexity of design, inks used, area to be tattooed, and how much custom art is involved.

  • How much does it hurt to get a tattoo?
    While pain levels are subjective to each individual, here are some guidelines for tattoo placement:

    Areas that have large clusters of nerves can be most painful. Areas that are ticklish, or less exposed to sensation, or have previous injuries, will be more sensitive to pain also.
    (Hands, Face, Solar Plexus, Throat, Nipples, Genitals)

    Areas that are less bony and more padded may hurt in a deep, pressured way
    (Stomach, Sides below ribs, Side of Neck, Inner Arms/Armpits, Inner Thighs)

    Areas that have muscle right under the skin may hurt in a  sharp, stingy way
    (Lower back, Top of Shoulders, Front of Arms, Top of Thighs, Calves, Buttocks)

    Areas that are more bony tend to feel pain in a burning way
    (Ankles, Hands, Wrists, Feet, Collarbone, Center of Chest, Shoulder Blades, Spine, Ribs, Kneecaps, Elbows)

  • How should I care for my new tattoo?
    See our page on

  • What if it needs touching up in the future?

  • What if I have a tattoo I want made into something different?
    We often do cover-up tattoos, and can work with you to design something you will be happy with.

  • Where on the body would you recommend a person NOT get a tattoo, and why?
    Hands and feet - particularly the soles and palms, as well as on the fingers.  Tattoos in these areas tend to need a LOT of consistent touch-up work, because the cells regenerate faster in those areas.

  • What piercings do you do and how much does each cost? Is jewelry included?
    We offer most basic and exotic piercings, except for male genital piercing.  See below menu for prices, most do include jewelry.

  • What materials do you offer in your jewelry?
    The jewelry we carry mostly is 316L Steel, with some items in implant-grade Titanium.  Brands we use include Neometal, Industrial Strength, Anatometal, and LeRoi.
