Tattoo Info:

 

-We are so excited you have decided to get a tattoo, we want to help make sure it’s a smooth and comfortable process for you! Please feel free to discuss with us ways we can accommodate you. We ask that you read the following to help prepare for your big day. 

 

-If you are a minor, please let us know right away. There are different requirements for minors that will determine how we proceed with scheduling for you. We do not tattoo anyone under 16.

 

-We suggest you look through our portfolios to see our artist's work and the style of tattoos each artist focuses on. You can see all of our artist's work as well as their contact info on our website and social media. Choosing your tattoo artist should be based on your interest and trust in that persons work and that artist's chosen style of tattooing. Harmony happens when an artist's style and a client's ideas align.

 

-You can contact Marigold or your artist of choice directly. If you don’t have an artist preference, Marigold will help set you up with an artist well suited for your ideas. Our minimum is $80 and we charge approximately $120-$150 an hour, your artist can give you a ballpark quote for your desired tattoo. 

 

-After contacting us to inquire about getting a tattoo your artist will proceed with the planning phase via email/phone or they may ask for an in person consultation. During this time you will be asked how big you want your tattoo in inches, where on your body it's going, and reference materials such as drawings, photos, or ideas you have for your tattoo. You may also look through your artist's portfolio to find examples of their work you like to include as reference. This is your time to go over all details regarding your tattoo so please be as thorough as possible. Please be advised that our artists have a full schedule of tattoos they draw for and we organize our schedules methodically. We do not have the ability to draw for clients out of order, or to draw and re-draw multiple times, or to draw up multiple versions of your ideas. It is important to have a clear starting point when consulting with your artist. 

 

-Your artist may ask for a $50-$100 deposit which will go towards the final price of your tattoo. Your deposit is transferrable, but non-refundable and will be forfeited if you cancel without advanced notice. If your tattoo requires multiple sessions the deposit will come off the final session of your tattoo, you may not use it early.

 

-The time at which your artist begins drawing for you will be based on where you fall in their schedule. Prior to your tattoo your artist will give you an opportunity to review your design. That may be in the days leading up to your tattoo or the day you arrive for your tattoo. That will be the designated time to make any changes to your design, please review things thoughtfully as we will not be able to redraw your tattoo multiple times. If there are large last minute changes you may be required to reschedule your appointment and leave a new deposit. 

 

-If multiple people are scheduled in a group, multiple deposits are required. If one or more can’t make it let us know as soon as possible. If you can’t fill that appointment with additional tattoo work to make up for lost time, part or all of that deposit will be forfeited.

 

-Leading up to your appointment lotion the part of the body being worked on and keep the skin healthy. Do not get sunburned or damage the area we will be working on. If there are any concerns with the area of the body being worked on it may result in not being able to be tattooed.

 

-The day of your appointment you MUST have your government issued photo ID with you. No exceptions.  Acceptable forms are drivers license or passport. As much as we love children, do not bring children with you to your appointment. They pose a risk to themselves as well as our staff who need to focus on their work. We welcome approximately one adult in the tattoo room with you, please check with your artist on what they are ok with (due to Covid-19, at this time you must come alone to your appointment). Come well rested and sober. Please be on time or a few minutes early, give us a call if you are running late. Eat a decent meal (not too big) before you get tattooed. Bring water and a light snack in case you get hungry. You may bring headphones to listen to music or watch a show on your device. Please wear comfortable loose fitting clothing that can be easily moved away from the area being tattooed and that you would be ok getting ink on. Please don’t record or photograph your procedure or your artist without your artist's permission.

 

-Let us know if you have any questions, we look forward to working with you!
