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 soon as you can. 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?
Bring it in 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.
+ How do I make an appointment?
Appointments are preferred for tattoos that are involved and require a lot of drawing time. The most streamline way of making an appointment is to stop by the studio first as we do not make appointments over the phone. Once you choose an artist by checking out our portfolios, we'll discuss your ideas and offer any advice we can to give you a tattoo that you'll love forever. A $20 cash deposit is required for all appointments, so be sure to have a 20 spot when you stop in.
+ How do you base your prices?
Single session tattoo prices are given as a flat rate, and sessional work is $125/hour. We offer a discount to our men and women in uniform.
+ What if I want to book the entire day with one 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 over an 8 hour period.
+ I have a tattoo I want to cover-up. Help!
Covering an unwanted tattoo has never been easier. Red Lotus offers the latest technology in tattoo removal and tattoo lightening using the KYG laser system. Laser sessions are done by appointment only, so give us a call to set up a consultation. During the consultation, we will examine your tattoo and discuss with you your goals and give you an estimate on how many sessions you will require to achieve those goals.
+ I'm drunk. Can I get something done?
No. If we smell it on you, 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.
+ Do you accept credit cards?
Yep, Visa and Mastercard.
+ Is privacy available?
Totally! Your "intimate area" tattoos will be completely private and professional.
