The parent/legal guardian must have a government issued ID and the signed and dated *notarized consent form*. This form can be printed out on our website.

  • Tattoo Maven will not tattoo or pierce anyone under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol. We reserve the right to refuse service to anyone!
  • Due to the possible risks involved, Tattoo Maven will not pierce or tattoo women who are pregnant or nursing.
  • We cannot give you price quotes for tattoos over the phone or Internet. You must come by the shop for a more accurate price estimate.
  • Children are not allowed to stay for a tattoo procedure. If you have an appointment, please make sure you arrange for childcare ahead of time.
  • No pets allowed. However, service dogs specifically trained to aid a person with a disability are welcomed in the lobby area only.
  • Our gift certificates expire one year from the date of purchase. They are non-transferable and may not be redeemed for cash. Lost or stolen gift certificates will not be re-issued. 
  • Out of respect for our artists, please arrive on time for your tattoo appointment. If you are more than 30 minutes late, you forfeit your deposit.
  • All deposits are non-refundable and non-transferable, no exceptions.


  • At Tattoo Maven, we require a deposit for all appointments. All deposits are applied to the cost of the tattoo and it also confirms your appointment time on our calendar.
  • For multi-sessions tattoos, the deposit will be held as payment towards the last session of the tattoo.
  • A cash deposit is preferred, but we do accept credit cards (5% processing fee for all credit/debit cards).
  • Deposits range from $50-$150 depending on the size of the tattoo and artist preference.
  • In the event that you need to reschedule, we require at least 24 hours notice via call or email. We will move your deposit with your appointment up to two times before it is forfeited. You must speak to someone over the phone or through email before considering your appointment “cancelled.”
  • Please be aware that some of our artists are booked out months in advance. If you reschedule, your new appointment may occur then or later depending on artist availability.
  • Cancellations with less than 24 hours notice will automatically be forfeited.
  • No call, no shows will also forfeit their entire deposit.


  • Eat a good meal. If you don’t have time, you are welcomed to bring snacks and drinks with you.
  • Wear or bring comfortable clothing so the artist can easily access the area being tattooed.
  • Make sure you bring your government-issued ID with you to fill out our consent form.
  • You can bring a friend for moral support, but please limit it to just one!
