Is it safe to get a tattoo or piercing?
Yes, for most people Tattoos and piercings it’s safe.You can be assured that Freddy Tattoo Studio requires each artist to hold client safety as the first and foremost priority. We have the highest level of sterilization possible and go above and beyond all local health codes and laws. We do have a consent/waiver form which identifies certain instances when it would not be appropriate for an individual to receive tattoo or piercing, but these are rare instances.
Does it hurt?
Yes it hurts. And no it doesn’t. There are lots of people walking around with tattoos and piercings so it’s not unbearable. There are many sensations used to describe it depending on each person and eatch area is being worked on. Some people even like it!
Can I bring my own picture or drawing for my tattoo?
Yes. This tattoo will be on your body permanently so we want to be sure you are totally happy with it. Bring anything you think it may might help to capture exactly what you’re looking for your tattoo to reflect. We also have plenty of reference books available for ideas. No matter whether you know exactly what you want or don’t have a clue, we will always work with you to design a custom piece of art that you will love.
How much will it cost?
That depends on the size of the piece and the detail involved. Some pieces cannot be completed in one sitting. You will be given a quote once you meet with the artist and go over the details of what you want. Remember though, if another studio is willing do your tattoo super cheap BEWARE! Sometimes you get what you pay for and this is going to be on you forever. If you do go for the super cheap shop see “question on fixing a bad tattoo”!
It is our policy to collect a deposit when booking an appointment. We accept deposits via cash or credit card and the amount of the deposit required is decided upon by the individual artist. The deposit you leave will come off the final price of your tattoo. Artists carefully schedule and book their appointments based on blocks of time. If you do not show for your appointment, they often do not have adequate time to fill your vacancy. Deposits serve as a good faith gesture to hold your appointment and to compensate the artist if you fault to show for your appointment time. Most of the times, deposits are not refundable, except if we receive a 24 hours notice.
Are there any special requirements to get tattooed or pierced?
You must be 18 years or older for a tattoo or piercing due to local health rules and regulations. Piercings and Tattoos only may be done on under 18 year olds with a guardian or parent present.
I have a tattoo that's really bad, can it be fixed?
Our artists can usually cover up or fix most tattoos (even really bad ones) so you would never even know they were there. We are always honest though. If we don’t think it can be successfully covered we will let you know and work with you on what options you have. We never do a tattoo just to make a buck. This is a really good group of artists who take tremendous pride in their work and art. Be assured that the artwork on your body and how you feel about it is a reflection on them – meaning your satisfaction is VERY important!
