With Tattoos by Chris. You’ll find a talented tattoo artist,
with years of experience, since 1982. Who will create the finest quality
tattoos. Whether you want traditional, custom, new school, color or gray, we can
bring your ideas to life, and design a tattoo that you will be proud to have
chosen for your body. To Me I believe our goals are the same: To find and give
you the perfect tattoo. I am committed to making your experience a positive one.
With a little etiquette, from everyone, it’s not hard to do. Here are some
helpful hints on etiquette and expectations when you come see me are no
different than having dinner out at a good restaurant. You are the customer /
client and I aim to please. In fact, there are guidelines for patronizing which
assists you in knowing your rights as a Tattoo/ Piercing client when visiting
Me. Remember it goes both ways --we too have the right to expect your conduct to
be civil, polite and respectful. (And
Never Ask Me
To Tattoo Hatred of Any Kind). I Will under No Circumstances be involved or Invoked in That.
So if you’re Smart you won’t even bring it up! (Take That Somewhere Else)...
•DO try to have some kind of idea what you’re
looking for before you come to See Me- impulse buying isn’t, usually, a very
good way to find a tattoo that you’ll be able to live with for the rest of
your life. Of course, I am willing to help you explore ideas; but you should
have some kind of idea that led you to the decision to get tattooed in the first
•DO get comfortable. You want the best tattoo you
can get so allow me to work in a relaxed setting, if breaks are needed say so!
Don’t squirm and wiggle to get my attention so you can tell me that you are in
need of a break. Just tell me and I will appreciate it and accommodate your
natural needs. But don’t expect a break every ten minutes. I have a schedule
DO tell me immediately about:
• Any medical issues you have ( i.e. pregnancy, Allergies, diseases, HIV,
MRSA Hepatitis, medications Of Any Kind). Don't Fool Around It Is Not A Joke. Let Me
• Any concerns you might have about getting tattooed. I Am there to work with you and make your experience As Pleasant and as easy as it can be. So please speak up.
‘green’ or ‘funny.’ Tell me right away
(don’t try to tough it out) so that he/she can deal with it- I Am prepared for
it and knows how to handle it. :
(If Any Procedure I Perform Looks Funny Or Not Up
To My Standards Or Yours For That Matter Let Me Know Immediately I Want To Know
Immediately. The Last Thing I Want Is For You To Be Unhappy Or Unsure About Any
Little Thing Anything At Any Time. it's not a little thing if it bothers
you (gee I am not sure doe's that look right Did He
Touch Something With his hands while gloved Up things like that I take very
seriously and I want to know right then so I can correct my procedures
speak up and SAY SOMETHING I Want To Know Immediately!!!!! )
I Want You To Have A Tattoo To Be Proud Of And Be Happy With. And
Be Proud To Show in Any Company.
•DO NOT try to bargain with your tattoo artist like
you’re at a garage sale or flee market. You wouldn’t try to bargain for a
lower price with your dentist or store clerk. If all you have is a certain
amount of money available ask me and see if I can assist you with that budget or
save up until you have the full amount. Bargaining in a tattoo shop is an
exercise in bad taste; and the quickest way to tick
you artist off. The last thing you want is your tattoo artist mad at you
when he starts tattooing you. Bargaining is offensive. If you’re going to get
something that you’re going to wear forever, do you want to go into this
experience with a “flee market” expectation or the top of the line” mind
set. (If You Are Looking For Quick And Or Cheap
Please See Another Artist.).
•DO NOT ask your artist to draw something just to
see if he can. There are people who come into the studio and ask for one thing
to be drawn after another without every getting a tattoo. (This
is why I require a deposit on drawings. I Do Not Draw For Free).
•DO NOT (bring a “cheering section” With you).
Many shops will not let ANYONE accompany you into the tattoo area and it is
prohibited by many state laws. You’re free to ask about bringing a friend but,
not many artists want 3 to 5 of your friends crowding around and disturbing the
•DO NOT bring children With You without
asking first- call ahead if you have to. Your tattoo artist will really
appreciate it if you can find a ‘sitter’ for the kids so that you can come
to the studio alone. There are hazards! And Other Things that children can be
exposed to, (Grabbing At Equipment, Crazy People,
And Possible Nudity. Things A Child Should Not See.) And you will not be able to appropriately
supervise your child while getting a tattoo or piercing. (This is your time to
relax). Children can be very distracting to everyone in the Area.
•DO NOT Come To See Me if you’ve been drinking or
if you’re under the influence of drugs. Come sober nobody likes dealing with
This may all seem
to be common sense but the reality is that tattoo artists deal with breaches of
this etiquette all day, every day. A little common courtesy and etiquette can go
a long way towards making your entire tattoo experience much more rewarding and
pleasant. It’s a small price to pay for a big reward.
