Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need an appointment?

We do cater for walk-ins, however, as we are a busy studio, we cannot guarantee availability. 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 the 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 its 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, while others are remarkably calm throughout the 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.


Do I need an appointment?

Come and visit us in person to make a booking and discuss your tattoo. Alternatively, use our online booking form [Link to booking form].


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 for clients cancelling with less than 14 days’ notice, arriving late to an appointment, or rescheduling less than 48 hours prior to the 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.
