Tattoo Policy and General Info

There is no federal legal age for piercing or tattooing in Canada. Some areas have local by-laws. Vancouver does not. Our minimum age requirement is 16 years old with valid government issued ID, at our artists discretion.

We operate a Zero Tolerance policy for drug and alcohol impaired customers.

There are no refunds for tattoos.

Shop Rates are as follows:

Minimum Charge $75. Hourly Rate: $150.

Just remember a cheap tattoo ain’t good and a good tattoo ain’t cheap! It’s with you for life…

If you are after some form of text/script – please ensure it’s spelled correctly! This goes doubly for foreign languages and/or symbols. We are not responsible for incorrectly worded or badly translated text. If in doubt, check it out.

All tattoo bookings can be made either in the shop or over the phone using a valid credit card – a $40 per hour booked non-refundable deposit is required for all appointments and this is taken off the final cost of the tattoo. The deposit is not refundable for any reason. If you do not show up on time for your appointment you will lose your deposit. We can reschedule your appointment as long as you give us a minimum of 48 hours of notice. Please understand and respect that our artists’ time is money.

Remember – ALL of our artists are equally skilled in rendering text/script, Kanji and flowers! If, however, you’re after something a little more unique and custom such as a full-color half-sleeve, old-school design or a realistic portrait then please feel free to browse though their galleries to find an artist best suited to your vision. You’ll need to arrange a consultation (which is free) to discuss your ideas and come up with a workable solution. Any custom drawings that need to be made to visualize the end process will have an additional charge of between $20 – $40 depending on the artist’s time to prepare and execute them.
