Q&A: This is my first tattoo. What's the process?
A common question we get asked at the shop is “This is my first tattoo. What’s the process?” To answer this question, we break it down into a few simple steps.
After you’ve done your research and narrowed down the shop(s) and or artist(s) you’d like to work with. Reach out! This can be done through email, phone or direct message. Be sure to send visual references related to your tattoo concept along with details such as size and placement. That way, the scope of work can be assessed and determine whether a consultation is required.
Consultation and Booking
For projects that require more information, clients are encouraged to book an in-person consultation. Consultations are generally free and a conversation with an artist where they can efficiently determine the scope of work and provide details such as pricing, timing, and availability. Once the artist has collected the information they need, they’ll move forward with booking you in. Once you’re ready to book, you’ll be provided with available dates which require a deposit to secure. Be sure to review shop tips and policies as deposits are generally non-refundable.
