I am ready to get a tattoo in your studio and
want to schedule an appointment. What's next?

Before you contact me, please check my past work and decide if I am a good fit for your tattoo idea. I specialize mostly in Tibetan art and dot work tattoos now but the subject matter can be anything. Best way is to fill out the contact form on the website and schedule your consultation. During your consultation, you can talk about your idea, bring references/photos, drawings, and inspiration for your tattoo. You can also describe your idea in words too. If you want to book after the consultation, you will leave a deposit ($50-100) to secure your appointment day and plan according to it.

What are your hours?

I mostly work Monday to Saturday 11am-8pm, but you can also come in on Sunday if necessary.

How much does it cost?

It depends on placement, size, style, and how much work is required. General hourly rate is $150-$175. My minimum is $100.

What forms of Payment do you take?

Cash is always preferred. I also take credit cards and other payment options.

Do you accept walk-ins?

Sorry, no walk-ins. Appointment only.

Do I tip?

Tips are always appreciated but not required. If you would like to tip me, some clients like to tip in cash and others like to bring us homemade goodies/gifts! I love and appreciate all of it.

Can I bring a friend?

You are able to bring one friend if possible. No kids.

How do I care for my new tattoo?

Please follow the aftercare instruction sheet. No swimming pool/beach for 2 weeks and avoid working out the tattooed area for 48 hours. I always tell people to consider your tattoo as a wound and care for it that way to avoid getting infection and heal the right way. Contact me for any questions.

What should I bring to my appointment and what should I wear?  

Eat before you come, wear loose, comfortable clothing, keeping in mind you’ll have to remove the garment covering the area you’ll be getting tattooed. Bring a state or Federal issued ID, your method of payment, and anything you want to be comfortable during your tattoo.

Are tattoos safe?

Made in Tibet Tattoo Studio is a fully disposable shop. This means that all items that come into contact with bodily fluids are disposed of and replaced with brand new materials for each and every client. This includes new single-use needles, disposable grips, disposable ink holders, disposable razors, and disposable barriers covering everything that is used during the tattoo procedure. I simply prefer disposable materials as it is the most effective and efficient way to keep everything safe and sanitary.

Does getting a tattoo hurt?

Pain is different for everyone, and it depends on the size, placement, and style of tattoo being performed. I will do everything I can to make you as comfortable as possible during your appointment.

Will my tattoo fade?

All tattoos will fade to a degree over time. You can slow the effects of aging by moisturizing, using sunscreen spf 30+, and avoiding uv exposure when possible.

I also offer one time free touch up within a 12 month time period for all tattoos I’ve done from its initial appointment day.

Can you cover up an old tattoo with a new design?

Yes and no. I have to see the old tattoo in person to determine if it’s possible. This can be discussed during your consultation.

What if I need to cancel my appointment?

With cancellation, you forfeit your deposit. If you want to reschedule, please contact me 48 hours before your appointment day or you forfeit your deposit.
