How much is a tattoo?

At Method Tattoo, the cost of a tattoo will be determined on which artist will be doing your piece, the nature/complexity of the design, and work involved. It is best to book a consultation with an artist to discuss your tattoo needs, so they may give you a better estimate for your tattoo. To request a consultation, please send an email to dave@methodtattoo.com or larissa@methodtattoo.com

Do I need an appointment?

Yes. We are now a by-appointment-only shop. If our schedule permits, appointments can be made day of.

Is there a shop minimum?

The shop minimum is $150. Meaning if your tattoo takes less than 60 minutes we would consider it minimum charge.

How old do I have to be to get a tattoo?

You must be a minimum of 18 year of age to get a tattoo. No parental consent accepted for anyone under 18 years of age. Method Tattoo requires all clients to produce proper identification upon request to get a tattoo.

How do I prepare for my tattoo?

- Get a good rest the night before and show up clean and on time. No hangovers. Drugs and alcohol thin the blood and promote excess bleeding which lengthens the healing process. - Have a good healthy breakfast/lunch before your appointment. - Bring a bottle of water to stay hydrated. A small snack can be beneficial for longer sittings with periodic breaks. - Wear something loose fitting and comfortable to allow your artist better access to the area being tattooed. - Trust your artist. Sit back, and allow your artist to work without too much distraction.

Healing & Aftercare

Your new tattoo will take 3 weeks to fully heal if proper aftercare instructions are followed. At the end of your appointment your artist will go over aftercare instructions and products with you to be sure you understand how to properly care for your tattoo. Aftercare is just as important as the tattoo application process itself. Scabbing, flaking, peeling and dryness are all normal parts of the healing process. If you are concerned at any point during your healing process please come in and consult with your artist.

Do you do cover-ups?

Yes, we do! It is recommended to come in and consult with an artist so they can see your original design and assess what they can do.

Can I still suntan?

Sun-tanning of any kind (bed, or direct sunlight) WILL damage and fade a tattoo. If prolonged direct sunlight is unavoidable please use sunscreen. It is not recomended to tan at any point during the healing process.
