    • We have to see art work and size to give you a quote. It be best to do in person we are open 7 days a week noon till 8pm. Thanks Tattoo 42

    • It depends on size and detail. It would be best to swing in the shop for a price quote we are open 7 days a week noon till 8pm. Thanks

    • We would have to see what you like to do. Could be $60-$150 and that is just a guess. It would be best to come in and talk to one of our artists. We are open 7 days a week.

  1. What is your pricing per hour for tattoos, or are they individually priced? I don’t live super close, so if I could possibly have an estimate without having to come in person first I’d so appreciate it! Thanks so much!

    • We quote out most one day tattoos and go hourly on most multiple session tattoos. It would be best to come in and pick an artists out first. We do not do quotes on line. Each artist quotes for them self’s and there are too many variables to do one online accurately. We are open 7 days a week. If there is a certain artists your interested in I can tell you what days they work.
      Thank You Tattoo 42

    • There is a lot of info. It would be best to call, or stop by so we could answers the questions you have. Tuesday, Fridays, and Saturdays would work best.

  2. Does your shop do cover-up tattoos. If so, I do have a photo of a design in mind that I can bring in to show.

  5. Hi, three of my friends and I are wanting to do a small matching tattoo. I was wondering if for that many people it would be better to schedule an appointment or if a walk in is okay? The tattoo would be of a small arrow with little things added to it.

    • It would be best to come down in person and put down a deposit with one of our artist to hold an appointment time. And make sure we can get you all in. We will also quote you a price at that time. We are open 7 days a week noon till 8pm. Thanks

  6. I am looking for an artist that is great at line work. I looked at zacks Instagram and I like his clean work. I am looking to have either a cover up or incorporating 2 designs. Can you have Zack email me for further info

    • Yes we do. All of our artist do black and grey. I suggest looking at our portfolios to pick the artist that you kine the most.

    • To get an appointment we take deposits in person. You can come down and look at designs, and have a consultation at no cost.

    When would be the best time to have someone look at a large tat that needs some work, it’s 30 years old and needs some love

    • I depends on which artist you pick to do your tattoo. You also are welcome to swing by anytime for someone to check it out. We are open 7 days a week noon till eight.

  9. I got a tattoo done today by Abraham and he was amazing! He listened to what I had to say and gave great advice. I definitely recommend him! I was also very impressed with the shop and the other tattooers as well. Every customer that came in while I was there left extremely happy and you could tell they had a great bond with their tattooer and were repeat customers. Thanks again Abraham for my dog paw print and heart tattoo!

    • That’s awesome!!! Glad to hear you had a great experience at our shop. I’ll pass the kind words down to Abraham.

  10. How much would a tattoo cost that says “I can do all things through him who gives me strength.” I will come in the store for a quote but could you give me a general range of the cost?

    • It would be best to come in and talk to an artist in person to get an accurate price quote. We have to look at the size and font to get an idea.

      Thanks

  11. Wanting to get maybe two face tattoos on friday before 2 one for sure but was just wondering if that would be possible

  12. I wanted to work on doing a back piece. The bottom would be a slight cover up of black and white.. sounds worse than it is but I need someone who could really help. I would truly love a wolf head howling of some sort and maybe in a scene? Not fully sure

    • It would be best to come in and talk to an artist in person to get an accurate price quote. I probably not cost too much at all.

      Thanks
