Yes. Deposits are non-refundable.

HOW OLD DO I HAVE TO BE TO GET A TATTOO?

DO YOU DO COVER-UPS?

HOW SHOULD I PREPARE FOR MY TATTOO ON THE DAY?

You must be at least 18 years of age. It is against British law (Tattooing Of Minors Act 1969, Chapter 24) to tattoo a minor, even with parental consent. In accordance with this law we have a strict No Minors policy. Not only must you be 18, you have to prove it with a valid Photo ID. No exceptions. 

We do work with lots of cover-ups but we would need to see you for a consultation to determine if this is the best option for you. 

 

If you are interested in the end result of our clients tattoo cover-ups, check our portfolio.

Good food, good sleep and a long bath. 


Too much alcohol the night before is not a good idea, as this can thin the blood. Please be aware we will not tattoo anyone under the influence of alcohol or drugs.

CAN I BRING FRIEND/PARTNER TO MY APPOINTMENT?

ARE YOU LOOKING FOR NEW ARTISTS?

HOW DO I CARE FOR MY NEW TATTOO?

We politely ask that friends/partners are limited to 1 only during your session.


Our studio is small therefore your friend/partner must take care not to move around the space or lean on the tattoo chairs. This can be distracting for the artists at work.

 

Thank you for your understanding.

We are always looking to expand our team with new artists. If you are interested in working at our studio or in a guest spot visit, please contact us via e-mail bittenbyink@outlook.com or call us on: 01245 351222 (studio) or 07543436381 (Tony).

DO YOU DO PIERCINGS? 

Sorry, we do not do piercings.

You will be given the information after you’ve been tattooed.
