What is the tip etiquette when getting a tattoo?
Tips are kind of the same as they are with hairdressing. They’re not required, but more of an act of gratitude and appreciation for the extra effort or pleasant experience. There is no set percentage or amount. We all appreciate any amount and the gesture.
Can I see my design ahead of time?
We draw our designs either of the day of, or a couple of days before the appointment. I like to have the design fresh in my mind up until the time of your appointment. We will review the design upon your arrival and make sure its exactly what you're wanting before we start the tattoo. If you're not satisfied with the design worked up any changes needed will be made on the spot the day of your appointment.
