Booking Fee/Deposit

The booking fee is non-refundlable.

Deposits cover artists’ time spent preparing your tattoo and it’s a loss of earnings, especially if you cancel or reschedule an appointment too late since they won’t be able to rebook another appointment in time.

The booking fee will only be refunded if the tattoo artist himself has to cancel the period. When booking your tattoo time, carefully consider getting a tattoo.

The booking fee in this store is a bank transfer or cash payment of 100 € (incl. VAT24%). With this payment, you will be able to confirm your time on the appointment calendar and get the sketch visible before your tattoo time. You will receive a tattoo time proposal from the tattoo artist in your email and once a suitable appointment time has been found, you will receive payment instructions from the booking fee. If the booking fee has not been paid within the time stated on the invoice, the booking will be canceled from the calendar. The booking fee is not an additional fee or a hidden cost, but is included in the final price of the tattoo. Payment can also be made in cash, for example in connection with a personal consultation period, but in such case it must be discussed with the tattoo artist. The booking fee is personal and cannot be transferred to another person.

For customers who have booked for more than one time, the booking fee will not be refunded until the last visit, when the ordered project is completed or when the customer decides to take a break and no new times are booked on the calendar.

If the customer does not have to give an aggravating and justified reason for the cancellation (the significance of which was assessed by the tattoo artist himself) and there are still tattoo periods remaining, the booking fee must of course be made again to confirm the remaining times on the appointment calendar.

Tattoo Prices

The price of the tattoo includes one ready-made digital or hand-drawn sketch. Tattoos may be priced upon request when booking a tattoo, but the actual price will be determined by the individual artists based on hours spent on the tattoo and design or priced by piece size. The client can also insert a maximum amount (budget) while filling the booking form. In such cases, it is sought to be taken into account, but it should not hamper the design and execution of the tattoo from a qualitative and technical point of view.

Large projects, such as sleeves, full back pieces, etc. are subjected by a discount in the rate.

Tattoo Care and Warranty

After the tattoo has been booked, the deposit is paid, the booking manager will send you an email with the instructions for the after care for the tattoo. Or the tattoo artist at the end of your tattoo will give you a detailed explanation of how to take care of your freshly made tattoo. By following the care instructions, you will significantly reduce the risks and aesthetic defects associated with getting tattoos.

The tattoo warranty does not cover damage that has caused the tattoo ink to come off the skin due to mechanical actions, excessive sweat secretion, greasing, or rancidity in the post-wrapping (it is not recommended to cover the tattoo again). The warranty also does not cover the normal aging of the tattoo or exposure to UV light, both of which cause the image to spread or fade. Failure to follow the tattoo care instructions is reflected in the tattoos and such tattoos cannot be granted warranty repair but the customer pays for the repair themselves.
It’s racommended not to use cortisone based creams, people using them has found that can couse ink spreading under the skin.

The tattoo artist is not responsible for complications caused by tattoo aftercare, such as inflammation, color allergies, etc., or clothing stained with tattoo ink, nor is he or she obligated to reimburse the costs incurred for these. The tattoo artist is also not responsible for any changes made to the skin, nor is he obliged or liable to reimburse the costs of repairing them.
Tattooing on areas of skin known to have low color retention is not guaranteed at all. (Fingers, palms, ankles down, elbows and knees, in some cases also bends). Warranty repair means a free small so-called ” touch up ” correction, ie a quick finish that brings the image back to the original. If more than 1 hour is spent on the repair, the customer is obliged to pay for the additional repair hours after the first free hour.

If an abnormality, such as an inflammatory reaction, occurs during the healing phase of the tattoo, contact the tattoo artist who performed the tattoo. The tattoo artist will give you additional instructions.
