Does it hurt?
Yes. Every time. How much? Well, everyone is different so it’s different for everyone. Suffice it so say, if it was really that bad, you wouldn’t see so many people with so many tattoos.
How much does a tattoo cost?
At Hidden Hand Tattoo, we have an $80 minimum and charge $125 - $150 per hour depending on which artist you see.
What forms of payment do you accept?
We gladly accept MasterCard, Visa and of course, cash.
Do I need an appointment?
As we like to say: walk-ins are welcome; appointments are preferred. Often we can accommodate walk-in clients on the spot. If, however, you would like to be sure that you can be accepted at your preferred time, an appointment is recommended. If you would like to have a custom tattoo designed by an artist, it is recommended that you set up a consultation first, and then book your appointment. We require deposits for appointments, so if you wish to book over the phone, a credit or debit card will be necessary.
How long will my tattoo take to heal?
If well cared-for, a tattoo will typically heal within 2 weeks.
How should I care for my tattoo?
Every artist has their own specific after-care instructions that they will give you when your tattoo is done. Generally speaking, if you keep your tattoo clean, leave it alone and don’t over-do it with the lotions, creams and ointments, it will heal just fine. When it reaches the itchy stage, apply minimal amounts of a water-based, fragrance and dye-free lotion. The big no-no’s are direct sunlight, soaking in water and picking.
Do I need to bring in my own design?
No. We have an ever-growing supply of flash and an extensive library of reference books. We also have several creative and talented artists who will be happy to design a tattoo for you based on any images or ideas you may have.
