I AM UNDER 18, CAN AN OLDER SIBLING OR OTHER FAMILY MEMBER SIGN FOR ME?
No. By law it MUST be your parent or legal guardian. If your legal guardian is an older sibling or other relative, be prepared to bring the corresponding legal paperwork to prove guardianship. Work done on minors is always at the discretion of the artist, regardless of consent.
WHAT IS REQUIRED WHEN GETTING A TATTOO/PIERCING?
We need a state issued, photo identification for EVERYONE to get tattooed or pierced. EVEN MINORS. For minors, a school ID card will work (The state of Nebraska requires every student to have an ID card), but the parent must have a state issued ID.
WHAT IS YOUR DEPOSIT POLICY?
A $50 deposit is required for all appointments and custom artwork.
A $100 deposit is required for all-day appointments
All deposits are NON-REFUNDABLE and will stay on your account until used on services and/or merchandise. Failure to provide 24 hours notice of cancellation of your appointment WILL result in the loss of your deposit (Sudden illness/inclement weather are exceptions)
SHOULD I EAT BEFORE GETTING A TATTOO/PIERCING?
Yes, you should always eat before getting any work done. Your body deals with the stresses of tattooing/piercing much better when you've eaten. Make sure you have eaten a decent sized meal within an hour or two of getting work done.
WHAT ARE YOUR PRICES FOR TATTOOS?
Tattoo prices are based hourly. $100 - $125 per hour, depending on the artist.
Our weekday minimum is $100 ($125 for Matt Allsman)
Our Walk-in Saturday minimum is $60
Plan ahead. know an approximate size that you want on your body. Words like "small" or "medium" size are relative terms, and aren't very helpful in judging the actual size a piece will be.
Have a reference or rough sketch of your idea. It doesn't matter if you are not artistically gifted, it just helps us understand what you have in mind. It keeps us on the same page.
"Good tattoos aren't cheap and cheap tattoo's aren't good" Don't settle for less than what you want because you don't have the money for it that day. Tattoos can be done in sessions, down payments can be arranged, and we can also put your tattoo on your credit card.
Over-the-phone price estimates are always going to give you a very broad price range. The absolute BEST way to get an accurate estimate is to stop in one of our studios and speak with an artist. No appointment required for that.

Piercing prices vary depending on the piercing and (in some cases) the kind of jewelry you choose. There is a full list in the BODY PIERCINGS section of this website
