Can I bring in a picture or idea of what I'd like? What if I'm not sure?

It's helpful if you have an idea of what you'd like for your tattoo and where you'd like it placed. If you have any references, printouts, etc of subject, style, color, or font please bring those in with you. Be open to suggestions from your artist. We know what makes the best tattooable images, what ages well, and what will work best on your body. We're happy to work together with you to craft your ideas into an awesome piece of body art. 

How long will my tattoo take?

During your consultation, we will give you an idea of how long your tattoo will take to complete. Some small tattoos are less than half an hour. Some large pieces will require several sessions, with healing time in between.

What will my tattoo cost?

We offer competitive prices so you can get a beautiful tattoo without breaking the bank. There is a $100 minimum and most tattoos cost about $150 per hour. Tribal tattoos (solid black and/or color) and tattoos in difficult locations cost $200 per hour. Most of the time, your artist will modify or redraw your image in order to make it work for your tattoo. Ink Jam charges a non-refundable $20 required drawing fee for each drawing.
