How much will my tattoo cost me?  

This will depend on several factors, including size, location on the body, detail and colour or black/grey.  It is best for you to let me know up front if you have a budget you are working with.

How long will my tattoo take?  

Similar to cost, this will also depend on a variety of factors. The time can also depend on how comfortable you are during your session. Check out the “What to bring” tab of my page!

How much do you charge?   

My hourly rate is $150 per hour. This rate only applies to work that takes longer than 3-4 hours. Anything outside of this timeframe will be charged at my discretion. I always do my best to quote you the price and time when booking a single session tattoo, however this is ALWAYS an estimate only. 

What is your minimum charge? 

My minimum charge is $150.

Can I discuss my tattoo ideas with you at the shop?  

Certainly, I am more than happy to sit down with you and help plan your next tattoo. I usually book my consultations in the morning. Please fill out the contact form or email me to book a free consultation.

Do I need to leave a deposit? 

Yes, all bookings require a deposit. I require $150 for single session tattoos and $250 for all large scale work. All deposits are NON-REFUNDABLE for any reason.

Does my deposit go towards the cost of my tattoo? 

Yes, your deposit will be deducted from the cost of your tattoo. For tattoos that require several sessions, your deposit will only be deducted from the final session.

If I need to reschedule, will I lose my deposit?  

This will depend on the circumstances of the situation. If you cancel within 48 hours of your appointment, you will lose your deposit and need to pay another deposit to reschedule.

How can I pay for my tattoo?  

We only accept cash payments at Shinko Tattoo
