FAQ's

Do I need an appointment?

We do cater for walk-ins, however as we are a busy studio we cannot guarantee availability so please feel free to make a booking

How much will my tattoo cost?

Until we have spoken with you about your ideas it isn’t possible to provide a price.

How old do I need to be to get a tattoo?

You must be 18 to be tattooed at Parlour. We do not tattoo anyone under 18 regardless of parental consent. Every client will be required to provide a valid form of ID (Passport or Driving License).

Do I need to book a consultation?

You can pop into the studio at any time for an informal chat with the shop manager or any available artist, however we recommend booking a consultation. A consultation is free, we only require a deposit once your tattoo is booked and before we begin drawing your design.

Do you cover up old tattoos?

Yes, our artists can do cover-ups. Please come in and talk to us about your options as each cover-up presents it’s own challenges. We will work with you to find a design that works for you but also functions effectively as a cover-up.

Does getting tattooed hurt?

Everyone’s pain threshold is different, some people find it uncomfortable, others are remarkably zen throughout the whole experience. Most people say it isn’t as bad as they imagine and many liken the sensation to ‘kitten scratches’.
Many people find the outline more uncomfortable than the shading.

Will you send me the design before my appointment?

Designs will be provided in person once you’re at the studio at which point any changes can be made.

Do you accept credit/debit cards?

Yes we do accept card payments.

Do you require a deposit?

We require a 50% deposit for all bookings, which is redeemable against the total cost. Your deposit holds the date of your appointment for you.
We will not advertise this time to anyone else, and as a result, deposits are non-refundable to client’s cancelling with less than 14 days notice, arriving late to an appointment or re-scheduling less than 48 hours prior to appointment.

Deposits go towards covering artists time spent preparing for your tattoo and to loss of earnings if they are unable to rebook an appointment.
