Terms & Conditions

The Tattooing of Minors Act 1969 makes it illegal for anyone under the age of 18 to get a tattoo. Parental consent is not accepted. Therefore proof of age is required in the form of any picture ID such as student card or driving licence.


I do not tattoo hands or faces.


I do not cater for children, this is a strictly 'no under 18's' environment, so no children are allowed in the studio.


Please bring a drink and/or sweet snack such as chocolate, especially if it is your first tattoo, or if you are having a long session.


Ladies, please do not bathe in oils for at least a week before your tattoo, as this creates a barrier in the skin and the inks will not transfer properly into the skin.


We reserve the right to refuse to tattoo anyone for any reason.


Deposits: Your deposit will reserve your time slot and is used as part payment for your tattoo. It is non-refundable. The balance is due on the day. No design work will be started until your deposit has been paid. Your deposit covers initial design work, stencil preparation and administration. If you don’t leave a deposit at the time of booking please pay it as soon as possible. If it is not received 10 days before your appointment it will be presumed that you no longer want your slot, which will then be given to someone else. When a deposit has been paid, if you don’t turn up for your appointment, or give less than 48 hours notice (2 working days), then your deposit will be retained, as this will pay for any work already carried out, and also compensate us for not being able to fill that time slot. However, if we are able to fill the cancellation then we can transfer the deposit to your new appointment. If you are able to give 2 working days notice (contact us by mobile or facebook out of hours) then your deposit will be returned, or can be moved to your next appointment slot. If you rebook after a cancellation made within the required 48 hours, a 50% deposit will be required. If you rebook after a No Show you will need to pay for your tattoo slot in advance, ie. 100% deposit. 30% of this is non-refundable and 70% is returnable under the terms above. 

Touchups: Give your tattoo at least 3 weeks to heal before deciding whether your tattoo needs any touch ups. Free touch ups are usually given, however, touch ups are not free if the tattoo has been picked or otherwise damaged during healing, or has not been looked after as suggested. If you have tattoos on your feet, touch ups are not free. You will need to look after your tattoos in these areas more carefully as they are very likely to wear and fade quickly, and this will have been discussed with you during your consultation or at time of booking.
