HOW DO I GET TATTOOED by an artist?

please visit our shop to book a consultation in person or you may submit an online consultation request on our book now page. Please be very thorough when describing your ideas, body placement, and size. The artist will then review the requests received and determine based upon your email or consult request which project your artist is interested in taking on first. A consultation is not a tattoo appointment. Scheduling a tattoo appointment before consulting with you artist may result in cancellation and loss of deposit. only after you consult with your artist and place a deposit for your tattoo will you begin the tattoo process.

can I see my drawing?

our artists withhold the right to refuse viewing any project due to content, timing, style, or any other reason, as main concern is first and foremost creating the best possible piece of art for every appointment. 


our artists do not do drawings for clients that will not be getting tattooed by the artist. If you admire the work, please be respectful enough to ask your artist to tattoo you- their drawing is not for a drawing for you to take elsewhere.

All drawings will be done for the day of the appointment or drawn directly on the skin and will not be available for viewing before your scheduled appointment date unless previously discussed with your artist.



Pricing varies depending on the artist and project.  Smaller appointments will be given an estimated quote. there is a minimum hourly rate  of $150/HR and will vary from $150/hr to $200/hr. on larger scale projects, you must be able to travel to Fort Collins and have at least a 4-5 hr appointment once each month unless otherwise discussed with your artist. Appointments booked after a lapse in monthly visits may also result in a raise in daily rate and/or deposit. Exemptions may apply in times of serious illness, injury or pregnancy.


This policy is to ensure the best quality of your tattoo, Our artists need to be able to work on their projects in a consistent and timely manner while the vision is still there. Our artists will not take on Large projects if you are not as committed as the artist is. 

Do you accept card?
