Tattoo FAQs

How much will a tattoo cost?

That depends on the size, shape, complexity and length of time it will take to complete your tattoo. So it’s best to come in and have a chat with one of our artists. For smaller custom designs, we take a non-refundable drawing deposit of £40. For tattoos we anticipate taking longer than 2 hours, we ask for a £50 deposit. Payment is due in cash only.

What if I need to cancel or postpone a tattoo appointment?

If you choose to cancel an appointment, your deposit will not be refunded. Should you wish to reschedule, please give us at least 24 hours’ notice, otherwise you may lose your deposit.

Will my piercing or tattoo hurt?

You may experience some discomfort. But we think it’s a small price to pay for such a beautiful piece of body jewellery. Just ensure that you have eaten, not consumed alcohol and feel rested before your appointment. Also, give yourself plenty of time to get to your appointment, so that you don’t feel rushed or stressed when you arrive.

How safe is it?

Each of our tattooists and piercers is registered with the Brighton & Hove City Council and are compliant with all the requisite Health and Safety legislation. Our equipment is either disposable or sterilized between customers and we use new needles for all customers. So all you have to worry about is which part of your body you wish to beautify.

Is there a minimum age limit to getting a tattoo or piercing?

For tattoos, the minimum age is 18 (with ID). For most piercings, you need to be at least 16, however for an intimate piercing, you must be 18 or over. If accompanied by a parent or legal guardian, we will pierce under 16s at our discretion.

Do I need to book an appointment?

You don’t need to book an appointment for a piercing, but we recommend one for tattoos. We do welcome walk-ins for tattoos, but we can’t guarantee that an artist will be free to start work immediately.

What should I bring to a tattoo consultation?

Our artists prefer to work on custom designs, so bring along pictures, photographs and any design samples – giving us the inspiration and you the perfect bespoke tattoo.
