Depending on workload, we try to check our messages weekly. Due to the large number of requests we receive we can not take on all projects. In addition, due to all of our commitment of creating original and unique work, we may not take on projects that are far too similar to other projects we have completed.

A small drawing fee may be required as well depending on the nature of the tattoo.
A deposit is required for all bookings, which is applied to the cost of the final session of the tattoo. All deposits are non-refundable/non-transferable and are rendered forfeit under the following circumstances; 5 days of notice are not given prior to a cancellation or re-booking, extreme tardiness, the agreed upon idea for the tattoo is altered significantly, the client does not take proper skin care (ie sunburns) prior to tattoo, and/or 2 or more re-scheduled appointments. All re-bookings due to a cancellation have to be rescheduled within 30 days or the deposit is forfeit. If a client does not show for their appointment without giving any prior notice or cancels the same day of their appointment, they will be invoiced for half of their scheduled tattoo time.
Design Fees are non-refundable and are not applied to the final cost of the tattoo. The design fee only covers the first draft of the design with very minor changes (depending on the artist). It should be understood that although a client may have a specific vision, some decisions will be left to the artist, be it for aesthetic or longevity reasons. It is understood that the client has chosen your artist after careful research, and trust in their process.
It is understood that the tattoo process can be complicated and varies from person to person, that skin is an unpredictable variable, or that some projects may take longer or need second passes. Clients should be aware that they should show up prepared for the day of the tattoo, having properly slept and eaten beforehand. Clients are expected to follow aftercare instructions for their tattoo.
Black Label Studios maintains the right to terminate a client/artist relationship for whatever reason it deems necessary including but not limited to; repeated cancellations, inappropriate client behaviour, and/or any no call/no shows. In addition the artists will not tolerate any abuse or harassment of any kind.
