Frequently Asked Questions
How much does a tattoo cost?
This is a difficult question to answer as it depends on the size, complexity, and placement of the tattoo since you can’t use metric and imperial units to measure out the perfect piece. Our artists here in Melbourne Florida charge an hourly rate, with most tattoos falling in the $100-$250 per hour range. Prices can always range based on the tattoo shop you visit. Visit our Florida tattoo shop on W. New Haven Ave. today!
What should I expect after my tattoo?
Whether this is your first tattoo, or you’re looking to do a bigger project, here what to expect. After your tattoo is finished, your artist will clean the area and apply a thin layer of saniderm and/or hustle butter (some tattoo shops use petroleum jelly, but we do not), and then cover the area with saran wrap. You will then be given aftercare instructions, which you will need to follow in order to ensure proper healing. Depending on the size and location of your tattoo, it can take approximately 6 weeks or more to heal completely. For more information about tattoo aftercare, read our guide on Saniderm application, removal, and reapplication.
Do you accept walk-ins?
We are absolutely ok with people walking into our tattoo parlour, but we recommend making an appointment to ensure that you’ll be able to get tattooed by your artist of choice. You can usually come into the shop as soon as a day prior to make an appointment.
