Frequently Asked Questions

How much does a tattoo cost?

A common question. This is how is works at Full Circle:

Each of our artists charge different hourly rates, which vary according to experience and speed among other factors. For larger work that may take a few sessions, it may be best to meet with us first so that we can give you a better estimate of pricing, time and availability. We can work with your budget but our main goal is to give you a great tattoo for a decent price.

How do I make an appointment?

Appointments must be made in person at the shop, at which time we will need you to leave a non-refundable $100 CASH deposit to hold your appointment. If you have a special circumstance such as coming from out of town, other arrangements can be made for you, such as mailing a check or money order. All deposits are subtracted from the total cost of your tattoo, or off your last session if multiple sessions are required.

What if I have to cancel or reschedule my appointment?

We require 24 hours notice for all cancellations or reschedules. We are willing to work with you, however if you miss your appointment without giving prior notice you will forfeit your $100 deposit. All deposits not picked up after six months will be considered abandoned and erased from our records.

Are children allowed?

Children are allowed, but not in the tattoo area. You may be here at the shop for some time so maybe its best to leave the kiddos at home.

Is there parking?

There is usually ample parking, though you may have to walk a block or two.

How long does a tattoo take?

Your tattoo time depends on a few factors, such as how big it is, how much detail, color vs. black/grey, etc. Once we speak with you we can usually estimate a general time frame.

Do you offer gift certificates?

Yes we do! Gift certificates can be taken care of with one of the front persons and are available to purchase for any resident artist with CASH ONLY.

How can I set up an appointment with a guest artist?

Guest artist appointments are set up the same way you would set up an appointment with one of our resident artists. We will usually have all of their contact information available online so that you can get in touch with them directly for any questions you may have, and we can set up appointments at the shop with a $100 CASH deposit. Additionally, if the guest artist you would like to work with is already in town we can also set up a consultation for you. All guest artists are payable in CASH ONLY.

Tattoo Aftercare

Things To Do:

– Keep bandage on for 30 minutes to 2 hours after leaving tattoo shop.

– Once you have taken the bandage off, gently wash the tattooed area by hand with luke warm water and antibacterial liquid soap. DO NOT USE BAR SOAP.

– Once you are thoroughly finished washing the tattoo, allow it to air dry. DO NOT REBANDAGE.

– Repeat and wash the tattoo several times a day. Be mindful of what your tattoo touches or the type of clothing it is in contact with. Try to wear something loose fitting. Try not to come into contact with animal hair or fur.

– Apply a paper-thin layer of fragrance-free sensitive skin lotion, such as Lubriderm, a few times daily. Less is better. DO NOT OVERSATURATE with lotion.

– Continue this for up to two weeks, and please remember to NOT PICK AT THE SCABS.

Things Not To Do:

– Do not submerge the tattoo in water (for example Jacuzzis, baths, swimming pools and oceans are prohibited. You should take showers though)

– Keep away from direct sunlight.

– Do not put your tattoo in contact with animal hair or fur.

– Do not pick the scabs or scratch the tattoo (it may get itchy at times).
