18 and over Policy: We do not offer tattoo services to anyone below the age of 18, even with parental or guardian consent. You must be at least 18 years old to get tattooed at Crooked Soul and you must provide a valid government issued photo ID in order to get tattooed.
Minimum Charge Policy: Our shop minimum covers the time and expense of a sanitary set up and clean up of the equipment and procedure area as well as single use supplies necessary to provide a clean and safe tattoo applied by an experienced professional. Our minimum is the absolute lowest amount we will charge for any tattoo. This applies per person getting tattooed, per session. If you are getting a tattoo of one tiny dot, the cost will be the minimum. If you and a friend are getting matching tiny dot tattoos, the cost for each of you will be the minimum each. If you want multiple tiny tattoos on your body at the same tattoo session, you will be charged a flat rate or hourly (so if you want multiple tiny tattoos, it is more cost effective for you to get more than one at a time). Please note that any tattoo that takes more than 30 minutes will automatically cost more than the minimum.
Cancellation Policy: All appointments require a minimum of 72 hours notice for cancellation. If cancelled with over 72 hours notice, your deposit may be applied to a future appointment. DEPOSITS ARE NON-REFUNDABLE.
Reschedule Policy: All appointments require at least 72 hours notice to reschedule. If at least 72 hours notice is given, your deposit may be applied to your new appointment. If an appointment is rescheduled more than twice, your deposit will be forfeited.
Late Policy: Please let us know if you are running late for an appointment. If you are 30 minutes or more late for an appointment without advance notice, you may forfeit your deposit, lose your appointment and be required to reschedule and leave a new deposit.
Deposit Policy: DEPOSITS ARE NON-REFUNDABLE. Deposits will be applied towards the final cost of your tattoo at your final session. Deposits are forfeited if you no-show for an appointment, cancel with less than 72 hours advance notice, reschedule more than twice, arrive for an appointment more than 30 minutes late, arrive for an appointment without proper ID or arrive intoxicated or otherwise unable to be tattooed, request excessive or last minute changes to the design or concept, do not complete your tattoo within two years, or decide not to get tattooed at all. If you forfeit a deposit, you may be required to leave a new deposit before booking any new appointment(s). Deposits may not be transferred to another person or for use with a different tattooer.
Artwork Policy: We will not email, text, or preview a custom design for your review until your scheduled appointment. Any revisions that stay within the idea discussed at the consultation can be made on the day of your appointment. If you change your idea, placement, concept, etc and major or excessive revisions are required, your deposit will be forfeited and your appointment will need to be rescheduled and a new deposit will be required.
Touch Up Policy: Courtesy touch ups are at the discretion of the tattoo artist. Necessary touch ups related to the technical application and healing of a tattoo are typically free if done within 6 months of the tattoo and by the original artist who did the tattoo (unless the tattoo is on a non-guaranteed body part). Touch ups cannot be done until the tattoo is fully healed. Touch ups due to client failure or negligence to follow our aftercare procedures are not free and will be charged the same rate as a new tattoo. Changes to the original agreed upon tattoo are not considered a touch up and will be charged as a new tattoo. HEALING RESULTS OF TATTOOS ON THE HEAD, FACE, GENITALS, FEET, OR HANDS (INCLUDING FINGERS) CANNOT BE GUARANTEED AND MAY NOT BE ELIGIBLE FOR FREE TOUCH UPS. These are considered non-guaranteed body parts and will more than likely need multiple touch ups and may be charged as a new tattoo each time.
Refund Policy: All deposits are nonrefundable, NO EXCEPTIONS. If you are unable to make your scheduled appointment, you must reschedule 72 hours before your appointment. You must contact the shop directly by phone. Not by email, as emails are not checked daily. Your Artist reserves the right to cancel all appointments and not rebook if continuous rescheduling occurs.
Guest Policy: You may bring only one guest with you to accompany you while you get tattooed. Your guest must be over the age of 18. Out of respect for the other clients getting tattooed who need to relax as well as the artists who need to focus on their tattooing work, any excess guests or disruptive guests will be asked to leave. Children or minors are not permitted in the tattooing area at any time. Be aware that tattoo shops are intended for a adults only and even an accompanied minor in the lobby area may see some nudity or hear adult language.
Pets Policy: The health department prohibits any animal or pet in the tattooing area. Service animals are permitted in the lobby area and must not be left unattended at any time.
