Frequently asked questions
1. Where is the Studio located?
We are located in the heart of Cardiff City centre. you can find us easily with the postcode CF10 1AE, just a few minutes walk from the train station or St.Davids 2 parking area.
2. What are your opening hours?
We are open 10am-6pm daily Monday – Saturday (closed Sundays).
3. Do I really need an appointment?
Not always, we do sometimes have walk in space for smaller designs with your chosen artist. I would recommend contacting us beforehand on 029 222 111 64 just to make sure we can fit you in. Larger designs require an appointment. We would recommend booking a consultation; popping in for a chat with your selected artist and taking it forward from there. This way we can ensure you’re getting the right tattoo from the right person and that we are on the same wavelength regarding design.
4. How do I make an appointment?
First take a look at our portfolios, we all do very different work so not all of us my be right for your specific job. Decide who youd like to get tattooed by and contact us. The easiest way is by phone (029 222 111 64) this way we can set you up with a consultation with the artist you have chosen. This is 10 minutes (or so) of your (and their) time to ensure we know exactly what you’re looking for and can create the perfect tattoo for you. Once you come in for your consultation, bring as much reference information as you have, preferably printed off, on a disc or memory stick. this gives us a stronger idea of what your tattoo goals are. From there it is up to us, we will craft the perfect tattoo just for you; for us to do this we will take a tracing of the area if necessary along with a non-refundable deposit (min £20). This deposit covers the drawing time involved and comes off the final price of your tattoo. If you are running over half an hour late and don’t call you will forfeit your deposit (this also stands if you do not show up at all). You will also forfeit your deposit if you change your design completely; E.G if in your consultation you want a realism rose, our artist has spent multiple hours drawing this for you and you then decide that instead of a rose you would like a bird; it becomes a wasted drawing and the time is covered by your deposit; small changes are fine and can be amended without the loss of deposit.
5. How much will it cost?
Shop minimum is £40; no matter how small or simple. this covers our set up costs and time along with labour. Aside form this we charge hourly at £60p/h. Some tattoos we are able to give you a flat rate (size/time dependant) this is something you can discuss with your chosen artist in your consultation. Tattoo placement can be a factor in pricing.
6. Do Tattoos Hurt?
Yes. some mild some wild. placement is key. If you want the tattoo; you will be fine.
7. Are Tattoos safe?
All our equipment is either disposable/sterilisable or covered with a barrier. We take the utmost pride in making sure that our work and studio is at peak cleanliness for bot you the client and us the artist.
All tubes/needles are single use and disposed of after every tattoo, the same goes for out ink caps, razors and barriers ensuring there can be no cross-contamination.
We are licensed by our local authority and work closely with them to ensure peak safety and cleanliness standards, adhering to a strict routine to ensure there can be no cross contamination or risk of any complications.
We hang our licences in our reception area, they are names and signed for each artist and for the studio. If you would like to see the artist un-package the tube/needle, thats not a problem as this will be done in front of you just before your tattoo.
8. Do you guys do Piercing?
Not at the moment although we will do in the near future.
