That depends on the size of the piece, the detail involved, location on the body where it will be placed, and finally which artist you’ve chosen. Artists rates vary and each shop has a minimum for any tattoo. You can email us with a description AND photo and we can give you a rough estimate.
Some pieces cannot be completed in one sitting. Your artist will provide a quote once you meet and go over the details and design of what you want. Keep in mind though, if another studio is willing to do your tattoo super cheap, you get what you pay for and this is going to be on you forever. If you do go for the super cheap shop see question on fixing a bad tattoo!
Our artists can usually cover up or fix most tattoos-even really bad ones so you would never even know they were there. We are always honest though. If we don’t think it can be successfully covered we will let you know and work with you on what options you do have so you will ultimately be happy. We never do a tattoo just to make a buck. This is a really good group of artists who take tremendous pride in their work and art. Be assured that the artwork on your body and how you feel about it is a reflection on them – meaning your satisfaction is VERY important!
Tattoo deposits work as a way of you financially committing to your upcoming tattoo appointment. Without this monetary protection, artists and shops could lose a significant amount of money due to clients backing out. Deposits are needed in order to cover the artist’s time, researching process and drawing your stencil out.
The deposit currently ranges from $50-$100 NON-REFUNDABLE deposit at the time your appointment is made or to have your artist commit to drawing up a tattoo design for you prior to your appointment.
The deposit is applied to the final cost of the tattoo on the day of your next appointment.
The deposit amount varies from artist to artist because their hourly rates vary.
ALL DEPOSITS ARE NON REFUNDABLE & NONTRANSFERABLE from one artist to another. Upon leaving a deposit with 7 Souls Tattoo & Piercing, you agree that the entire deposit will be forfeited if your appointment is cancelled entirely.
You may transfer a deposit to a new appointment date IF you reschedule a full 24 hours prior to the original appointment.
Should the appointment or tattoo design be changed under the required 24 HR MINIMUM, a new deposit for a new appointment is required! Providing us with a minimum of 24 hrs notice will guarantee that your deposit will carry over to the new appointment date.
For multi-session tattoos, the deposit will be transferred over to each session and will be held as payment towards the last session of the tattoo.
Your deposit will be forfeited if:
If we did the tattoo within a 2 (two) month period, usually. Unless it’s clear that you did not follow the artist’s instructions; therefore, making it your fault your tattoo did not heal properly in which case you must pay for it to be fixed.
Feet and hands are not usually touched up for free. Also, tattoos on the hands, fingers, inner lip, white ink tattoos or other areas that your artist warned you prior to the procedure may require touch ups and thus is your choice knowing that certain areas do not hold ink well and you will be responsible for paying for a touch up.
We do not make appointments for touch ups, walk-ins only. Also, touch ups can only be done Monday-Thursday. Contact the shop for availability the day you want to come in. If you’re looking to get a coverup of a tattoo, please keep in mind that many coverup tattoos can take more than one session to cover up your original tattoo. These multiple sessions, if necessary, are at the customer’s expense.
