WHAT ARE YOUR OPENING HOURS?
We are an appointment only studio. This means that whilst we are generally open Tuesday to Saturday, we are only open whilst we are conducting appointments.
CAN I GET TATTOOED UNDER THE AGE OF 18 WITH PARENTAL CONSENT?
No, there is no such thing as tattooing with parental consent. This falls under the tattooing of minors act: http://www.legislation.gov.uk/ukpga/1969/24
WHAT I.D. DO I NEED TO BRING?
A passport, driving licence or citizen card are the only acceptable forms of identification.
WHAT IS YOUR CANCELLATION POLICY?
A 50% non-refundable booking fee is required for all bookings. A minimum of 7 days' notice is required to cancel or change an appointment. Failure to give sufficient notice will result in a loss of booking fee. Should you be more than 10 mins late to an appointment, the appointment will need to be rearranged and this will also result in the loss of your booking fee. This is due to the artist being unable to fill the time slot at short notice. All booking fees are non-refundable and non-transferable, without exception. All our artists are self-employed and are entirely responsible for their own workloads, schedules, tattoo designs and pricing.
WHAT IS YOUR MINIMUM CHARGE?
Our studio minimum is £80.
HOW DO I GET A QUOTE AND BOOK AN APPOINTMENT?
We understand that with everyday commitments, it isn’t always possible to pop into the studio. Therefore we have created a booking form for you to complete online. Simply visit www.nomoralstattoos.com/book-now. Please note that on occasion a in person consultation may be required to discuss further detail and enable us to quote you accurately.
DO I NEED TO LEAVE A DEPOSIT?
Yes, We require a 50% non-refundable booking fee to secure an appointment, with the remainder payable at the end of the session We understand that some clients prefer to pay for their appointments up front, we can certainly accommodate this and will always provide a receipt and appointment card for any deposits left with us. Payment methods vary dependant on the artist.
DO YOU COVER ALL STYLES?
All styles are welcome. However, if we do not think our style of tattooing is best suited to your design idea, we will make recommendations to other artists. Throughout the year we have guest artists who cover varying styles and would be more than happy to look at your ideas. Please check the website and follow us on social media for regular updates.
DO YOU ACCEPT DEBIT AND CREDIT CARDS?
No, sorry, our artists currently accept cash or bank transfer only. There is a cash machine a couple of minutes up the road should you need to use one.
DO YOU OFFEER CONSULTATIONS?
Yes! Sometimes for more complex designs we recommend a consultation at a mutually convenient time to run through all your ideas, answer all your questions and get a thorough understanding of your design.
DO YOU DESIGN TATTOOS?
Of course! Our artists prefer to sit with the client and go through ideas and the more reference they have to work with the better. Reference doesn't always have to come from pictures of other tattoos! We encourage all forms of reference to help us build a picture of your ideal design.
DOES IT HURT?
All tattoos have some degree of discomfort, but it is all dependant on the person and location of the tattoo. Some areas of the body are known to hurt more than others and it is important to remember that everyone’s pain threshold is different.
CAN I USE NUMBING CREAM?
We do not recommend the use of numbing cream as it can affect the final finish of the tattoo. Problems can include fading, complications with healing and irritation. However, we understand that some people prefer to use it and we respect this. All we ask is that you notify us that you are intending to use the cream and that you perform a skin test to ensure you are not allergic to the product.
DO YOU TATTOO HANDS OR NECKS?
We do, but this is completely at the artists discretion.
HOW MUCH IS A SLEEVE?
There is not a ‘one size fits all’ answer as the number of hours you will need to complete a sleeve is entirely dependant on the style, design and complexity; the amount of time required to complete the project will dictate the final cost. We will always give an approximation of time for each piece undertaken once we have a thorough understanding of the work required.
DO YOU USE VEGAN INK?
Yes! Our inks are all Vegan friendly and so is our recommended aftercare product.
IS EVERYTHING YOU USE STERILE?
Absolutely. We only use the best single-use sterile equipment, and this is purchased gas-sealed and sterilised from a licensed retailer. This means that after each client the equipment is clinically disposed of by our specialist clinical waste company.
WHAT AFTERCARE ADVICE DO YOU GIVE?
Your artist will explain all the aftercare advice in detail and give you the opportunity to ask any questions you may have. We will ask you questions about your job, any hobbies you may have or holidays coming up. This allows us to tailor your aftercare to ensure it is suitable for your circumstances. We follow up with you during the healing process to ensure your aftercare is progressing as we would expect and encourage you get in touch if you have any questions.
