Appointments are almost always required as we perform only custom designs. We usually ask for inspiration photos/designs from our clients and work to create an original piece that can be loved for a lifetime. We also offer tattoo cover ups and work to take a “mistake” and turn it into a work of art that the owner can proudly wear. We are also happy to refresh a well-loved and worn piece.
What to expect
When you first arrive, you will be greeted by a friendly member of our staff. You will be asked to complete your Consent and Aftercare forms (if you didn’t get the chance to do them online). We will ask you for your i.d. if it’s your first visit to the shop. Your artist will go over your design with you to be sure it is just right. The artist will wash his/her hands and put on gloves. The area where your tattoo will be applied will be thoroughly cleaned and prepped for your new tattoo. And then, let the fun begin!
Once your tattoo is complete, your artist will thoroughly clean the area, apply aftercare ointment, apply a bandage, and remind you of your aftercare instructions.

It is the law in Maine that you must either be 18 or must be accompanied by a custodial parent to receive a piercing.
