Consultations are a necessary factor as a face to face to face meeting is the most effective way to bring your art to fruition. In order to set the appointment during the consultation a deposit is required.
The purpose of the deposit is to ensure that your appointment is set for the date and time specified. The amount of the deposit is to be determined by the tattoo artist during the consultation; it is non-refundable, and is subtracted from the total amount of the tattoo price. The deposit does not guarantee that your image will be drawn before your appointment, it guarantees your appointment date and time. If for some reason the artist is not able to make the appointment, you have the option of refunding the deposit or transferring it to another appointment date.
The deposit is only transferable to set another appointment if the tattoo artist has been given a notice 24 hours prior to the original appointment date.
Get ready for your tattoo by eating a decent meal at least 2 hours before your tattoo appointment. If you are 20 minutes late for your appointment, your deposit will be forfeited and you will need to reschedule with your artist.
Wash your tattoo 3 or 4 times a day, use vitamin A&D ointment for the first four days of after care, then switch to unscented antibacterial lotion.
