HOW DO I START THE PROCESS?
First step is to set up a consultation by clicking the link above. You can choose to do your consultation via phone or in person. Your tattoo appointment will be made after the consultation. The studio requires a $200-$400 deposit (depending on how much time you want to reserve) for all tattoo appointments. This counts against the cost of your tattoo, and can be payed online through our booking service page.
WHAT DOES A TATTOO COST?
Jackie offers Half Day sessions for $900 or Full Day sessions for $1,800. The time a piece takes depends on a number of factors including but not limited to: size, placement, whether it is color or black and grey, style (i.e. realistic vs non realistic), the design complexity, and how well you as a client sit for the piece. An estimate of the time required to complete your tattoo will be given during your consultation.
HOW LONG WILL I WAIT FOR AN APPOINTMENT?
Saturdays can book more quickly than late morning/early afternoon weekday appointments. If you have a flexible schedule you may not have to wait as long. Book early to lock in your desired day!
WHAT TYPE OF PAYMENT DO YOU ACCEPT?
Cash is preferred. There is a 5% service fee for card transactions. Be sure to bring the half/full day cost of the tattoo to your appointment.
WHEN CAN I SEE MY DRAWN-UP ARTWORK?
Artwork is drawn up for booked clients only, drawn a couple days before the appointment to ensure clients are confident in the design. 2-4 days before your appointment, you will be contacted to ensure approval of the design. An average tattoo design takes between 2-6 hours to draw, and is ready to be tattooed when you arrive for your session at no additional cost for the service.
HOW SHOULD I PREPARE FOR MY APPOINTMENT?
Wear a mask or face covering that covers your mouth and nose.
Drink lots of water starting the day before (be hydrated)
Eat a decent meal 1-2 hrs before your app and bring a drink and snack (low blood sugar is what makes people get nauseous, sick or even pass out during a tattoo)
Get a good nights rest. Tattoos are hard on your body so it's important to rested and refreshed.
Start using lotion on the area of the tattoo a week before... it will soften the skin and make it easier to tattoo (this can actually save you money on larger pieces) And keep moisturizing even after it's healed. Healthy skin means healthy tattoos.
Bring a pillow to sit on (seriously)
Drink alcohol the day/night before or the day of your session. It is illegal in the state of Missouri to preform a procedure on any person that is under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Also, drinking heavily the night before will thin your blood and may also make you dehydrated and tired. Having a hangover will lessen your pain tolerance and you'll have a bad day.
Get a tan or sunburn. Sunburn cannot be tattooed and you will have to reschedule.
Bring a bunch of friends... Tattooing is not a team sport! Only clients are allowed in the procedure area to ensure the best experience all around.
Come too early.... 5 to 10 minutes before the appointment is fine. There's a great coffee shop down the street should you find yourself at a loose end!
