frequently asked questions
How do I get an appointment for consultation or tattooing?
If you would like to make an appointment for consultation and/or tattooing, please fill in the tattoo inquiry form here. We will do our best to reply you in an e-mail as soon as possible, and thenwe can discuss your idea as well as give you an estimate for the price and discuss possible dates for an appointment. The consultation appointment is generally free of charge, however, a deposit is required in all cases for tattooing appointments. The deposit can be paid either in cash at the studio, or by PayPal, but you will receive further detailed info through e-mail about this. Once the deposit has been paid, the appointment is secured.
Do I need to do a consultation before tattooing?
Of course there are designs and ideas that do not require a consultation beforehand (small or simple designs), but usually a personal consultation is ideal to discuss the ideas, size, placement and price of bigger pieces. This usually takes around an hour and by the consultatiton some drafts are made on the basis of the information provided in the Appointment inquiry form.
How long is the waiting list?
It generally takes around 2 weeks to book an appointment for tattooing, but from time to time I have empty spots due to cancellation/any other reason, so it is possible that I can book you in faster.
Do I need to pay a deposit?
For consultations, no, for tattooing appointments, yes. The amount of the deposit depends on the length of the appointment, and is between 5 000 -15 000 HUF. The deposit can be paid in cash in the studio or online on my Paypal, and the motive of it is that it secures the appointment both for me and the client, and also compensates the time spent drawing, planning and consulting in the case of a no-show. The deposit is non-refundable, however, if you cancel before 48h of your appointment, it can be rescheduled. In the case of a last-minute cancellation (less than 48h), a new appointment can be only rescheduled with the payment of a new deposit.
When are you usually available? (opening hours)
The studio is open from 10-21 Monday-Sunday, but my free days vary. My hours are quite flexible, so I can usually schedule appointments for weekends and evenings.
What do I need to do before getting tattooed?
It is recommended not to drink alcohol, take any drugs or blood thinners one day before the tattooing session. It is also advised (if possible) to shower and change clothes before the session, since it reduces the risk of infection.
What do I need to do after getting tattooed?
After finishing the session, all the aftercare information will be provided both in oral and written form. The general idea is to keep the tattoo moisturized and away from factors that can cause irritation and/or infection, like soaking it in water for longer periods of time, scratching, exposion to sunlight, tanning beds. The detailed aftercare information is available here.
How much does a tattoo cost?
The final price of a tattoo depends on a number of factors: the size, the design, the level of detail all affect the price. With an approximate size, placement and reference pictures I can give a quote, but the final price can only be set after the final design is completed and agreed on.
Do you charge by the hour or by design?
I charge by design, if we agree on the final design and the price, if it takes more time than calculated will not affect the price of the tattoo. The price is calculated taking in account factors like design and execution time, size, details and amount of material required.
How far in advance should I cancel before my appointment, so a new appointment can be scheduled?
If you cancel the appointment before 48h of the appointment, a new appointment can be scheduled with the same deposit.
What happens to the deposit I paid if I cancel last minute?
If you cancel within 48h to the appoitnment, the deposit will be lost, and a new deposit should be paid in the case of securing a new appointment. In the case of 2 no-shows/last minute cancellations, I cannot give you any more appointments.
