Frequently Asked Questions
What is the best way to schedule a consultation & tattoo?
What to expect during a consultation?
Your consultation will last approximately 30 minutes. During this time, you will meet your artist to discuss the concept for your tattoo and discuss the location for your tattoo. Feel free to bring artwork or photographs that will help the artist visualize the tattoo that you want to receive.
After the consultation, you will schedule your tattoo and pay a $150 deposit to reserve your tattoo appointment time. This will go towards the final cost of your tattoo.
How quickly can I get scheduled?
Naomi Shanti is often booked out months in advance. She will resume consultations in October 2021 for the booking of 2022. Jessie Peek is currently accepting new clients.
How much do you charge?
Naomi Shanti has a current rate of $160 per hour. Beginning January 1, 2022, she will only be booking half and full-day appointments, which are at the rate of $500 and $1000. A half-day appointment will be for tattoos under three hours, while full-day appointments are for three to six hours of tattooing. Other artists, including residents and guests, are independent and establish their own rates. You may visit their independent pages for information.
What is the deposit and why?
There is a $100 deposit for a consultation. If you decide to schedule a tattoo appointment, this deposit will go towards your tattoo. If you do not, your deposit will be refunded. If you cancel or reschedule your consultation within 72 hours of the appointment time, you will forfeit your deposit and it will not be refunded.
For full deposit, rate, and scheduling policies for Naomi Shanti, visit our policy page.
Is there an additional design/drawing fee for a custom tattoo?
There is no design or drawing fee for custom tattoos. Each artist took into account the time it takes to complete your design and drawing when determining the rate for their work.
Can I see my drawing before my appointment date?
No. When you arrive for your tattoo appointment, your drawing will be ready and waiting for you. It will be sized to the placement on your body at this time and any minor changes can be made. It is important to us that you love your design, so we account for the extra time it takes to ensure this when scheduling your appointment.
How old do I have to be to get a tattoo?
You must be 18 years of age with a valid ID to be tattooed. We do not tattoo minors.
Can I bring my children to the studio?
Please DO NOT bring your children to the studio. Please make arrangements for childcare during your tattoo sessions.
