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?

A £50 – £100 deposit is required for all bookings, this can be paid by card, cash, bank transfer or PayPal. Deposits are NON-REFUNDABLE, and go towards the price of the tattoo on the day of the booked appointment. If multiple sessions are required the deposit is deducted from the final session. If more than one person is booking in, a deposit must be left for each person. Deposits cannot be transferred from one person to another.


What if I want to cancel my appointment?

We understand that sometimes you may need to cancel or reschedule your appointment but as our artists put time into artwork prior to your appointment, we kindly request that you provide at least 72 hours notice. Failure to provide sufficient notice will forfeit your non-refundable deposit. With a 72 hour notice, we will gladly transfer your tattoo deposit to secure your next appointment.
