Traditions Tattoo Company -- Shop Policies
Thank you for your interest in wanting to get a tattoo from us. We appreciate all of our clients. Your artist will do everything they can to make sure that they are ready for your appointment, and able to give you the best tattoo they possibly can. Here though is a brief list of what we expect from you as a client, that will help make sure that together we keep things safe, clean, and professional here at the shop.
We do not tattoo under the age of 18, even with parental consent.
We do not pierce here. We just tattoo.
All appointments require a deposit.
Please remember that all deposits are non-refundable -- this includes canceled appointments.
Asking to reschedule your appointment with less than a weeks notice will result in a lost deposit.
The shop minimum for a tattoo is dependant to the artist.
Each artist has their own hourly rate.
Your appointment date/time is only for the agreed upon tattoo at the time the appointment was set. Any changes to the design, size, or location will be a different price, it may need a new appointment date, or it may result in you losing the original date and deposit entirely (considered a cancelation) if it was done with short notice.
We can't show artwork before the appointment. Demanding your artist to break this policy can result in losing your appointment/deposit.
"Touch-Ups" are done for free if scheduled within a month of the tattoo's completion.
Any changes, additions or alterations to a tattoo that were not in the original design are not a "touch-up" and will require payment. Re-doing a tattoo due to aging, sun exposure, or improper care is not a "touch-up" and will require payment.
You should not bring a guest with you unless given permission in advance, and minors may not enter the shop. If you were given permission to bring a guest they need stay in front, and out of our work areas. Pets are also not permitted in the shop.
You are expected to arrive no more than 10 mins early and no more than 10 mins late. If you are running late contact your artist to make sure they know your situation. Depending on how late you are running, and the work-load of the day, they may have to reschedule you, and you may lose your deposit. Being over 10 mins late can result in you being considered a no-show and losing your deposit, especially if late without notifying us.
You are expected to arrive sober from any drugs or alcohol, wearing clean clothing, and with a clean body to help with our aseptic procedures.
All cell-phones must be silenced when in the shop, and all calls must be taken outside. We suggest you bring headphones if needed. If you have been allowed a guest this applies to them as well.
