Is it standard to tip your tattooer? How much should I tip?
100% yes. We work incredibly hard (generally 7 days a week), to run, maintain, and work out of our studio. Tips help keep our lights on, and let us know you enjoyed your experience. Standard tip amount is 20-30%, however ultimately it is whatever you feel comfortable contributing.

Yes, please! We make a copy of your ID to submit with your consent form. We adhere with all NYC health requirements.

How do I care for my tattoo?
You will receive a "Second Skin" or a classic bandage. Your artist will go in depth of how to remove bandages, clean, and care for your new tattoo. Always use high SPF sunscreen after it is healed!
