How old do I have to be in order to get at tattoo? In the state of NY you must be at least 18 years old and have valid government issued ID. We do not accept school ID cards. If you are under the age of 18, there is no way for us to tattoo you. Even if your parents say it’s okay. It will be well worth the wait and we would love to tattoo your once you’ve reached legal age.
Do tattoos hurt? Everyone has their own threshold when it comes to pain. If it really hurt that bad, would you see so many people walking down the street with tattoos? Getting tattooed is more irritating and annoying than painful.
Why is my Tattoo Peeling and Flaking Off? While your tattoo is healing, it is perfectly normal for your tattoo to peel or flake. This is just a part of the healing process. Do not pick or scratch at the tattoo otherwise you might remove more than just what’s going to flake off. As long as you keep the tattoo moisturized throughout the healing process you should be fine.
Can I get tattooed if I’m sick? Getting tattooed while sick isn’t really the best idea. Lowering your immune system anymore than it already is could extend the healing time of your tattoo and in turn take longer for you to get back to full health. Plus you could also get the artist sick.
How much do tattoos cost? The shop minimum is $100.00 and our hourly rate for custom work goes between $200.00 to $250 an hour depending on the artist.

How much should I tip my artist? While tipping your artist is not mandatory, it lets the artist know of a job well done. We’ve seen people tip anywhere from $5 to a few hundred dollars for their tattoo.
