Do you do walk-ins?

We do occasionally have availability for walk-ins – we highly encourage you to call the shop at (773)486-8888 if you’re looking to get something same-day! Sometimes our artists will have last minute cancellations or no-shows unexpectedly, in which case they may post last-minute availability on their social media as well.

What is the shop minimum and hourly rate?

Our minimum price for tattoos is $100. Our hourly rate is $150 – $200 per hour for extensive work. For more difficult areas of the body, (torso, ribs, stomach, lower back, etc.) we may charge up to $250 per hour. Please inquire with individual artists for their rates.

Do you do cover-up tattoos?

We will do cover up tattoos within reason. Cover up tattoos will usually require a face to face consultation to see the existing tattoo and discuss options for your project.
