How much will my tattoo cost?
Due to the variety and complexity of design ideas each tattoo is priced individually. The tattoo price depends on its size, complexity and the dificulty level. We provide a very rough guide to our pricing (here)
How long will I have to wait for an appointment?
We are usually booked out 1 to 2 months in advance. If you are looking to schedule something soonish, you can always call the shop to see if anyone has availability that day. In tattooing, sometimes people have to cancel last minute for various reasons, keep an eye on our social media for announcements about last minute, random day of openings or WALK-IN days. We try to announce them as soon as we know.
How do I schedule an appointment?
We always recommend coming into the studio to make a booking so our helpful sta can assist you throughout the process. If you live in the Szczecin area, come in and see us. We will provide you with a FREE consultation (Mon.-Fri. 10 AM- 6 PM, Sat. 11 AM - 4 PM)
We do have a lot of international and out-of-town visitors who would like a tattoo, however. In this instance we may be able to book via email. We’ll need the exact image, the body placement and the sizing to do this.
The more information you can give about the tattoo you want, subject matter, reference pictures, placement, size and your availability, the easier it will be for us to help you. Always send reference pictures and ideas so the artist gets an idea of the “style” you are interested in and what you like. We will take it from there and make you a consultation appointment if needed as well as a tattoo appointment.
For all appointments we require a 20% deposit. The deposit secures your appointment and will go towards the nal cost of the tattoo. We cannot hold an appointment without a deposit, but we do accept cash, debit or credit to make it easier. All deposits are NON-REFUNDABLE. One week notice is required to reschedule an appointment. Failure to do so will result in loss of deposit. Failure to show for an appointment will result in loss of deposit.
How should I prepare for a tattoo appointment?
Both the client and Artist should come prepared on the day of the tattoo. We will provide a nice, comfortable, relaxing and clean atmosphere for your tattoo experience. You should be well rested and have a large, healthy meal prior to your tattoo appointment so your body has plenty of energy for the experience. Tattoos hurt in various degrees, so the better you look after yourself prior to the tattoo, the more comfortable you’ll be. Wear practical clothing that you don’t mind getting wrecked if ink should get on them. Shower beforehand, and bring a drink and snacks for longer sessions. No children are allowed in the tattoo procedure area, make sure you have a babysitter.

Tattoo care. What happens if I don't care about the tattoo?
An neglected tattoo tattoo will heal much longer and some scabs may appear, with which the tattoo may partially come off.
How does the tattoo heal? What does the correct healing process look like?
The visible part of your tattoo will gradually heal over four to six weeks. However, the deeper layers of skin will continue to heal at a slower rate over the next couple of months. This timeline will vary depending on the type of ink you get, including style and size.
The more careful you are with following aftercare instructions during the early days, the quicker your tattoo will heal; allowing you to resume regular daily activities faster, without causing further damage to the area.
