Frequently Asked Questions

+ Do you do walk-ins?

Sure do! Walk-ins are done on a first come, first serve basis, which means if you wake up with the itch to get something done, it's best to come in as early in the day as possible. If you'd like to know a specific artist's availability, give a yell on the phone during studio hours.

+ What if I have my own design?

Send it to our gmail redlotustattooco@gmail.com and let us check it out. We love to collaborate with our clients to give you a design that is uniquely your own. Any reference material you can find will help in this process, whether it be from the web, hand drawn, or photo. We have TONS of reference and eye candy at the studio to really get the creative ideas flowing as well.

+ What type of ID do you expect?

For starters, you must be 18 years old to have a procedure done, and you're gonna have to prove it. Your driver's license or state issued identification card are the most common methods to prove your age, but we also will accept passports and military identification cards.

+ I'm under 18. Can I still get work done?

Absolutely. Being under 18 means you are a minor, and your parent or legal guardian MUST be present and the both of you must have identification. If you are under 18 and do not have the necessary identification, a school I.D. card WITH a birth certificate will do (17 years old only, no younger).

+ How do I make an appointment?

Appointments are preferred for tattoos that are involved and require drawing drawing time. Booking inquiries start with emailing your reference pics, a clear photo of the area you want to get tattooed, a detailed description of your concept, and an approximate budget so we can size accordingly. We strive for quality over quantity and handle booking inquiries in the order we receive them, one at a time. This way we ensure total focus is dedicated to your piece. Once your information has been looked over, we'll respond with any questions or suggestions and booking availability. If a consultation is needed, we will book a 20 minute slot to have you come in and map out your piece and discuss details. Consultations do not require a deposit however ALL TATTOO APPOINTMENT SESSIONS require a minimum $50.00 non-refundable deposit, with any sessions priced $250.00 or higher requiring a $100.00 non-refundable deposit. Please note it may take a bit to respond to your inquiry depending on how many inquiries are ahead of you. We kindly ask for your patience and will most certainly respond to your inquiry when you're next up. Remember, tattoos are permanent and we do not rush the process. It's a tried and true formula for a great tattoo!

+ How do you base your prices?

Single session tattoo prices are given as a flat rate, and sessional work is $125/hour. We also offer a discount to men and women in uniform.

+ What if I want to book the entire day with an artist?

We offer a 'Tap-Out' session for $625. That will get you one artist for as long as you can last. The artist will work for you ahead of time on a design and tattoo you as long as you can take it.

+ I'm drunk. Can I get something done?

No. If you're visibly intoxicated, it ain't happening, sorry.

+ Does it hurt?

Kinda, sorta, maybe, not really... you'll just have to see for yourself! Everybody's tolerance is different, so the only person that can decide that for you is YOU. The more dedicated you are to your procedure, the better you'll do.

+ What forms of payment do you accept?

Cash is always king, and we also accept Venmo @redlotustattooco and PayPal redlotustattooco@gmail.com. Credit card companies hammer ya with transaction fees so we decided to do away with accepting them.

+ Is privacy available?

Totally! Your "intimate area" tattoos will be completely private and professional.
