What is a tattoo consultation?

Consultations are recommended for tattoos that may involve some extra drawing time, such as a cover-up or large scale tattoos, sleeves, etc. or if you have a specific artist you are working with. A consultation is time to talk one on one with your artist and get the details ironed out so everything is ready and we book the proper amount of time for the appointment. Most all tattoos require drawing time that can range from 20 min to 6 hours of drawing time for larger tattoos or coverups to prepare the design to your individual specifications and size, or if we are working around tattoos, or wrapping around the body in one way or another. Call down to the shop 402-474-5151 and schedule a consultation or you can stop in and set up a consultation. The tattoo appointment is then made in person at the consultation time, once you and your artist get all of the details worked out and has an estimate on drawing time, and tattoo time.  Once your talking with your artist, they can give you a price estimate, time estimate, and answer all your questions.
