Some tattoos may be priced differently on an individual basis and you will be advised of this during your correspondence. The minimum charge for any tattoo, regardless of size is £80.
Deposits are required for all bookings and dates cannot be held until one has been received.
All deposits are non-refundable. This is non-negotiable.
Deposits are £100 for all appointments, or the full price of the tattoo if below £100.
If you need to reschedule your appointment your deposit can be transferred to your new appointment so long as 7 days notice is provided. If less than 7 days notice is given then the full amount of the deposit will be forfeited.
If you choose to cancel your appointment then the full amount of the deposit will be forfeited (If you can no longer attend your appointment, please still get in touch to let me know as soon as you can, just as a courtesy).
If you are late without contacting me I will wait 1 hour before cancelling your appointment, in which case you will forfeit your deposit.
If you cannot provide ID showing you are over 18 you cannot be tattooed, and you will forfeit your deposit.
All deposits must be paid via Bank Transfer. Please contact Chris to receive the necessary bank details.
Due to new guidelines around working during the pandemic Chris cannot accept cash payments for tattoos, and so a Bank Transfer will be required to pay the remaining balance on the day of you tattoo.
If there are any added security measures needed by your bank to make this transfer please ensure you have prepared this in advance.
Card payments can be taken on the day if you are unable to make a bank transfer, but you will be required to pay the 2.5% surcharge.
Commissioned illustrations are priced individually depending on a variety of factors. Please contact Chris to discuss this further.
Depending on whether you are booking your tattoo for South Wales or one of Chris' guest spots, you will be provided with the necessary details about the studio address etc.
Moving forward there are some general guidelines that are now in effect due to the Covid-19 pandemic:
Please arrive to your appointment only at the time that it was booked for as we cannot have people waiting inside the studio. Please do not bring anyone with you to your appointment as we can only grant access to the individuals being tattooed.
You will be required to wear a mask for the duration of your appointment so please bring a mask with you and be wearing it when you enter the premises. You will also have your temperature taken with a contactless thermometer before being allowed to enter the studio.
Food cannot be consumed on the premises so please ensure you have eaten well before your appointment, although you can bring drinks with you into the studio.
After the tattoo comes the most important part; the aftercare!
Your tattoo will be covered in a layer of DermalizePro at the end of your appointment. This should form a second skin across the tattoo and will ideally remain stuck to the area until it is removed in the shower.
Leave the Dermalize on for the first two nights after your tattoo. When you wake up after the second night go into the shower and run the warm water across the Dermalize for around 5 minutes. This will warm the glue and make it easier to remove.
Take a corner of the Dermalize and stretch a small section of the plastic to weaken the adhesive before peeling it back off of your tattoo. Continue this stretch and peel method until you have completely removed it from your tattoo.
Shower (no baths) under warm/hot water for about 10 minutes using Sorry Mom Body Wash, which can be purchased at the studio. Alternatively use an unscented hand wash like carex to thoroughly clean the area of any residue. Only use your hand to wash the area, no sponges etc.
Air dry the tattoo for around 30 minutes if possible, or pat dry with kitchen roll at a push.
Once the area is completely dry apply a thin layer of Sorry Mom Tattoo Balm, which can be purchased at the studio.
It's important not to put too much lotion on the tattoo so only apply a thin layer, ensuring that the lotion is fully absorbed into the skin, allowing the tattoo to breathe and heal.
Repeat the above process morning and evening, with an extra application of Sorry Mom during the day required until fully healed, usually taking around 2 weeks in total. If you are unsure about your aftercare product please feel free to get in touch and ask.
Don't wrap the tattoo in cling film during the day, just wear loose fitting clothing and allow the tattoo to breathe as much as possible.
Please direct all enquiries and booking requests to: firstname.lastname@example.org
IIf enquiring about a tattoo booking please include either South Wales or Edinburgh in the subject, and include as much information as possible about what you're hoping to have done in the message.
This should include an approximate size in inches/cm and a location on the body.
Please also include a photo of the area you would like to be tattooed, ideally straight on while you are stood naturally so the skin isn't twisted, so that I can take skin tone and existing tattoos etc into account when planning the design. If you have any reference images which offer examples of what you'd like or styles your prefer then please also attach these to the email.
