Currently due to COVID, we are setting appointments over the phone and by email when possible. Please email us at email@example.com with your phone number, reference photos and desired size and placement for your tattoo OR call our shop and let us know which artist you’d like to work with and we will guide you through the booking process.
In-person consultations are also available by request and we will definitely need one for larger work (sleeves, backs, etc.) and for any type of cover-up.
We always require a deposit to set an appointment. That is $100 or $200 depending on the project/artist and paid in cash at your in-person consultation or through Venmo/Paypal if we are setting you up over the phone or by email. Your deposit goes towards the cost of your tattoo but once it’s paid and your appointment is set, it is non-refundable.
Our shop minimum is $100 per person. Our hourly rate for most artists is $200/hr. Larger works are charged by the hour, smaller pieces are priced per project depending on the level of detail, size and placement. Tattoos on sensitive areas like hands, necks, torsos, etc. can run a bit more because they’re difficult areas to tattoo.
For an estimate on your tattoo, please call us at the shop or email us with reference photos and your desired size and placement. Larger works may need an in-person consultation to get an estimate.
Currently we are not accepting walk-ins. Please call the shop before coming in. We leave some time each Friday to accommodate same-week appointment requests. We hope to have our walk-in days back up and running once COVID has calmed down a bit more. Stay tuned!
If you need to reschedule an appointment, we require at least 24 hours advance notice. You MUST call us at the shop and leave a message if it’s outside of business hours. Reschedule requests made through e-mail or Instagram DM may not be seen by your artist and will not count as proper notice. Failure to give 24 hour notice will result in you losing your deposit, meaning it won’t go towards the cost of your tattoo and you’ll need to put down another one to get back on the calendar. You may only reschedule an appointment twice. Additional reschedules will result in the loss of your deposit.
If you contact us at least 24 hours before your appointment, we will happily reschedule you (again, only twice!). Please note that if an artist is booked out quite far in advance, you will be scheduled for their next availability which could be several months out. For that reason, the more notice you give for a reschedule, the sooner we can get you back on the calendar. We will hold on to your deposit for up to six months. If you don’t attempt to reschedule within that time frame, you’ll lose your deposit. For an outright cancellation with no reschedule, your deposit will not be refunded to you. We always seek to respect your time and efforts and ask that you do the same for us!
You’ll receive text and email notifications from our calendar system 7 days before your appointment. If you don’t confirm through the link sent to you and we can’t reach you by phone to confirm you, you risk losing your appointment and having the space given to another client. For that reason, please save our number in your phone when you make an appointment and make sure that your voicemail is activated and that the mailbox isn’t full.
Currently we don’t allow any visitors. We have no waiting/lounge area for guests.
If you and a friend or family member are coming in for matching tattoos, we can schedule you for back-to-back appointments on the same day but will need whoever isn’t currently being tattooed to wait outside. There are a ton of great neighboring small businesses to check out on 30th Street.
Children are not allowed in the tattoo area at any time but if they need to accompany you for your consultation (*not* your actual tattoo appointment!), that’s okay. Pets/companion animals are not allowed inside of the shop for sanitary reasons. Service dogs and psychiatric service dogs are welcome as required by California Law.
Parking is street-parking only. We don’t have a parking lot and the lot behind our building belongs to a nearby restaurant that will tow you if you park there so please don’t! Metered spaces are available across the street but you’re better off finding any gray, unmarked curb on the surrounding side streets so that you don’t have to keep taking breaks to feed the meter. Obey all street signs to avoid a ticket! You may have to walk a block or two. If you’re running late, please give us a call to let us know.
Yes! You can come pick one up at the shop (cash only) or we can arrange a digital gift card for you (paid by Paypal) to send to the recipient. If you’re coming into the shop to purchase one with cash, please call us and give us a heads up!
Guest artists book their own appointments by email. Their emails are listed on our “Guest Artist” page and on their Instagrams. Please put “Full Circle Tattoo” somewhere in the subject line of your email.
