2.2 - If you wish to cancel your appointment completely you will lose your booking fee (deposit).
2.3 - If you cannot get your tattoo done due to medical reasons e.g: You find out you are pregnant, you are diagnosed with an illness that means you are unable to be tattooed in the immediate future etc we can put your booking fee (deposit) on hold for 12 months ready for when you are able to rebook. (72 hours notice still required)
2.4 - If you change your mind and decide you are unsure about your original design choice we can put your booking fee (deposit) on hold for 6 months to give you time to decide. (72 hours notice still required)

3.2 - Prices are not up for negotiation.
3.3 - Prices quoted are valid for the appointment/appointments booked only.
3.4 - If you get a quote and don't book in at the time the price will not be guaranteed in the future and will be reviewed if you wish to book at a later date.
3.5 - If you are having a sleeve the price will only be valid for the sessions that you book in at the time. If you book more sessions at a later date you will be charged the current day rate at the time of making more bookings.
3.6 - If you are making multiple appointments for a sleeve/large scale work these must be completed within a 12 month period from your first appointment. Any appointments on the same piece after 12 months will be charged at the current day rate.
3.7 - If you book in for a one session piece then decide to extend into a sleeve at a later date you will be charged the current day rate at the time of making the new bookings.
3.8 - Prices are subject to change and are usually reviewed every January.
3.9 - Prices/quotes will be changed if you change the size and/or design.
4.0 - Designing
4.1 - Designs are done for free and the artists will make one small change to the design for free if need be.
4.2 - If you want more changes made you will start to incur varied drawing fees which will be added onto the total price of your tattoo. Please be as clear as possible about your idea when booking to minimise changes and cost.
4.3 - A complete change of the design to something else less than 1 week before your appointment date or major changes to the design sent will result in you losing your booking fee (deposit) and possibly require rebooking of the appointment. Please make sure you are 100% sure on what you want done before booking.
4.4 - Our artists will not copy someone else's tattoo as we are a custom studio and design everything individually for each client where possible. They will try their best to keep as close to your original idea as possible but please understand it will not look exactly the same as the tattoo photo you used as reference so please bare this in mind when booking.
4.5 - Designs are sent to you the night before your appointment for approval. The Artists draw in order of the appointments booked so please be patient, they will not be sent any earlier than this.
5.0 - Aftercare
5.1 - When you leave the studio aftercare is your responsibility. Please follow the aftercare advice given to you properly. Failure to follow the advice carefully could result in a badly healed tattoo and will be exempt from a touch up, costing you more in the long run.
5.2 - Touch ups have a £20 charge to cover supply costs and must be done within 3 months of the original tattoo date.
5.3 - If you applied numbing cream before getting your tattoo and you have lost ink during healing you will be exempt from the touch up charge and be charged according to how much work needs redoing instead as we do not advise applying numbing cream due to the way it can affect the ink going into the skin. Please bare this in mind before applying numbing to yourself as this will be at your own risk and possible extra cost.
5.4 - Touch ups after the 3 month period will be charged depending how much needs doing.
5.5 - Adding to the design/wanting it darker/changed in any way will be classed as a new appointment and does not come under a touch up.
