However, we occasionally have cancellations, so if you’re visiting from out of town, give us a quick call and we’ll do our best to fit you in.
We also advise making an appointment for a quote if you’re planning a really intricate piece, or simply drop into our shop and speak to one of our team.

Our hourly charge is $180 per hour with a minimum $100 charge which covers both setting up and ensuring that your tattoo is delivered in a clean and sterile manner.
Of course, we have all the necessary certification and registrations, and we guarantee that that all our instruments are routinely sterilised and that we use new disposable gloves and new ink containers for each client.
You’ll also be given comprehensive aftercare instructions after each tattoo – after all the reputation of our tattoo artists is based on the quality and longevity of their work.
