Does it hurt?
Pain is relative. Everyone has a different tolerance to pain. I’m not going to kid you, though – it does hurt. Just not that much. Some have compared it to a “hot, scratching feeling”. People would not return again and again for tattoo after tattoo if it hurt that bad! Most of us are not into pain, but the beauty of the tattoo and the pride associated with wearing it far outweighs a little pin-stick here and there.
What is the best time of year to get a tattoo?
Although you can get a tattoo any time of the year, your skin gets a lot more abuse during the summer with swimming, tanning and just being exposed to the elements more. Winter time is really the best season to get a tattoo.
How much does it cost?
Tattoo prices vary according to the size and tattoo design. Of course, a larger and more complex design will cost more than a smaller, simpler one – that stands to reason. To give you an idea, relatively simple tattoo designs that are quite small (about the size of a silver dollar) will usually cost around $50 or $60. Prices vary though so the best thing to do is ask. Bring in your design – or just describe it – and we will be able to quote you a price right then and there.
How old do I have to be to get tattooed?
You must be 18 or older and able to provide picture ID on the day of your tattoo. I will not be tattooing anyone under the age of 18. It is state law.
