Terms and conditions

Please read the below very carefully, as you will agree to these terms and conditions automatically by paying the holding deposit, without signing this document.

A deposit is required for each session you book. Typically, the deposit is £200, but this amount may vary. For larger pieces, you have the option to either book multiple sessions in advance with a deposit for each session or book one session at a time, securing the next session after completing the current one.

Please note that the deposit is non-refundable.

Please book your tattoo appointment on a day when you have no other commitments before or after your session. Allow yourself plenty of time and avoid rushing the artist. If you need to reschedule your appointment, please provide a minimum of 10 days’ notice. Failure to do so will result in the forfeiture of your deposit.

We prioritize a transparent and open environment for all our clients and artists. As such, we do not offer private rooms for any tattoo procedures, regardless of the area of the body being tattooed. All procedures will be conducted in our communal studio space. By scheduling an appointment with us and proceeding with any tattoo service, you acknowledge and agree to this policy. We appreciate your understanding and cooperation in maintaining the communal nature of our studio.

• If you need to cancel your appointment due to illness or recovery from illness, you will have a period (usually 30 days) to reschedule your appointment, with your deposit carried over to the new date. The studio will not notify you of the expiration of this 30-day period.

• If you are ill a second time or give less than 10 days notice prior to your second appointment, the deposit will then become non-refundable and cannot be carried over.

• If you are more than 30 minutes late for your appointment, the missed time will be charged at our hourly rate in addition to the cost of your tattoo. We reserve the right to refuse to tattoo you if insufficient time remains to complete the tattoo.

• You can request custom tattoo designs directly from the artist; however, the artist is not obligated to provide the design before your appointment. There will always be time on the day of your appointment to discuss your design and request changes.

• If you make significant changes to your design or change it completely, we reserve the right to recalculate the number of sessions required for completion or transfer your booking to a different artist with a different session price.

Our staff are expected to treat individuals with courtesy, respect and fairness. Similarly, we expect our staff to be treated in the same way. We have a duty to protect the welfare and safety of staff. When individuals behave unacceptably or unreasonably they put their deposit to risk.

Please note you’re agreeing to the following terms with the successful payment of the deposit either with card/bank transfer or cash payment.

  • I acknowledge that there may be variations in color and design between the tattoo art I have chosen and the actual tattoo once applied to my body. Additionally, I understand that over time, the colors and clarity of my tattoo may fade due to exposure to the sun and natural dispersion of pigment under the skin.
  • I understand that a tattoo is a permanent alteration to my appearance and can only be removed through laser or surgical means, which may be disfiguring and costly, and may not fully restore my skin to its pre-tattoo appearance.
  • I grant permission for any photographs taken of my tattoo (excluding my face) to be reproduced in print or electronic form. If I do not agree to this provision, I will inform the artist not to share any pictures of me and my tattoo. However, after leaving the studio, I cannot revoke the studio’s rights over the pictures and videos taken. If I choose not to release the rights, photos will still be taken for quality assurance purposes.
  • I acknowledge and agree to the Tattoo Studio’s NO REFUND policy on tattoos and/or retail sales, and I will not request a refund for any reason.
  • I agree to reimburse the Tattoo Studio for any attorneys’ fees and costs incurred if I bring legal action against the studio or the artist, and they are the prevailing party. I agree that the courts located in the United Kingdom shall have jurisdiction and venue over me for any disputes arising from or related to this agreement.
  • I understand that it is my responsibility to properly care for my new tattoo and to follow the artist’s aftercare instructions. The studio recommends using aftercare products specifically made for tattoos, and aftercare instructions will be provided. Aftercare cream is also available for purchase in the studio. These are typically sold for £10
  • I understand that the studio or artist is not responsible for investigating my mental health or ensuring I have permission from my relatives.
  • I acknowledge that applying numbing cream to the procedure area without prior confirmation forfeits my entitlement to a free retouch, as the cream can impact the process and potentially affect healing.
  • I understand that a cover-up, especially over heavily inked areas, may not completely conceal the old tattoo, and some of the old ink may still be visible through the new design.
  • I acknowledge that if the artist is unable to complete the tattoo due to my inability to sit through the entire session, I am still obligated to pay the full amount.
  • If you visibly appear to be over 21 years old, we may not request legal identification documents from you, following the Challenge 21 government practice scheme. This decision is entirely at the discretion of our staff members.
  • Applying numbing cream to the area of the procedure you’re losing your entitlement for a free retouch as the cream can be impactful for the entire process and also potentially affecting the healing process. 
By allowing the artist to begin the tattooing process, the client acknowledges and agrees that the stencil applied has been reviewed and approved.

The client is responsible for ensuring that the stencil placement, design, and details are to their satisfaction before the tattooing process begins.

Once the tattooing process has started, any mistakes or issues related to the stencil, including but not limited to design placement, size, and orientation, are not the responsibility of the studio or the artist.

It is the client’s duty to communicate any concerns or desired adjustments before the tattooing begins. 

By proceeding with the tattoo, the client waives the right to hold the studio or the artist liable for any discrepancies or errors that could have been addressed prior to the commencement of the tattoo.

In the event that an artist terminates their contract with our studio before completing a long-term tattoo project, the studio assumes responsibility for addressing the situation.

While we strive to maintain consistent contracts with our artists to ensure continuity and satisfaction for our clients, circumstances may arise where this is not possible.If an artist leaves the studio before finishing a long-term project, we will make every effort to provide suitable alternatives, such as assigning another qualified artist to complete the work. However, we cannot guarantee that the new artist will have the same style or approach as the original artist.

By commencing a long-term tattoo project with our studio, clients acknowledge and accept these potential risks and agree that the studio will not be held liable for any differences in artistic style or approach resulting from a change in artist.

When completing our online forms, you will be required to provide information about any health conditions and medications you are currently taking. Please note that certain conditions, medications, or medical histories may render you ineligible for tattooing services. Failure to disclose this information beforehand will result in the forfeiture of your deposit.

Should any part, whether it be a provision, section, subsection, clause, or phrase of this release, be deemed unenforceable or invalid, it will be removed from the contract. The rest of the contract will be interpreted as if the problematic portion had never been included, ensuring the validity of the remaining terms.

I understand with the transfer of my deposit automatically means the following: ” I hereby declare that I am of legal age and I am competent to aggree to this agreement. “

I HAVE READ THE AGREEMENT, I UNDERSTAND IT, AND I AGREE TO BE BOUND BY IT.
