Our time is very valuable. Please note that when we schedule you an appointment, if you cancel at the last minute, it can be difficult for us to fill your appointment time. Please respect your commitment. Scorpion’s Sting Studio requires a deposit on all tattoos that aren't done same day. Please be advised deposits are non-refundable after 24 hours has passed from receiving the deposit.
Deposit amount varies in tattoo size and project scale;
Small tattoos 3x3” we ask for a deposit of 50
Medium tattoos 6x6” require a deposit of 100
Large tattoos 11x11” require a deposit of 250
Larger designs such as full body suits and full sleeve(s) may require significant drawing time and a deposit of 500.
All deposits will be deducted off the overall price of your tattoo.
In order to secure your time, please bring a cash, debit or credit deposit at the time of your consultation. This deposit can also be sent online in advance here.
Please complete our booking made easy system to schedule an appointment ahead of time as Scorpion’s Sting Studio is becoming increasingly booked. If you are getting a tattoo with script or lettering, come prepared by selecting a font in advance. It is important to eat food and drink water before your appointment. Please don’t consume drugs or alcohol. The pain is perfectly tolerable however some clients choose to use an ice pack on the area they are going to have tattooed or take an aspirin before their appointment to ease the pain.
For larger or highly detailed tattoos we urge clients to set consultations prior to being tattooed in order to discuss ideas and placement, go over images, and possibly to begin drawing sketches for your personalized tattoo. These appointments usually take about 30 minutes and if you agree on a drawing or on ideas, we will request that you leave a matching deposit which will come out of the overall price of the tattoo. Your deposit goes towards drawing time and secures the appointment date.
If you choose to cancel or change your appointment time please call or email at least 48 hours in advance before appointment date. If a complete cancellation does occur after that time period please take into account that your deposit is not refundable and the artist may choose to not reschedule you if you've taken their time for granted. Deposits on large tattoos are not refundable at any time. Our schedule can be very tight, so please be courteous to others who have appointments by showing up on time at your allotted time. Please keep in mind that the nature of tattooing is such that it is impossible to accurately project how long each project will take, so please give yourself ample time to have your tattoo done, and that slight appointment time changes may happen.
Touch-ups are free within 6 months of the tattoo appointment. We do not do free touch-ups on hands, fingers and feet. If you require a touch up after 6 months of the tattoo appointment, you will be charged. Touch ups can be done for free on older tattoos, if done at the same time as a new tattoo.
