Like many shops, we have taken walk-ins for years. However, due to concerns about the number of people in the shop at one time, we started working on an appointment-only basis in June of 2021.
However, sometimes we can still fit people in for same-day tattoo sessions, so while you can’t just walk into the shop for a tattoo, it is possible to get in for a tattoo with little notice, particularly if it’s a simple tattoo and we have an opening in our schedule for that day. Just call the shop – 541-485-5520 – to see what we have available.
While much of our work is custom, needing an hour or more of drawing time, and considering the pandemic-era accomodations we’re making, we fit walk-in tattoos in where we can. But what qualifies as a walk-in?
When we have the time it takes to actually do the tattoo, plus a short time to prep the artwork – say 20 minutes or less – we’ll be able to fit you in or get you an appointment a little later in the day. During our slow season (late fall and early winter) sometimes we can take walk-ins that require more preparation, but it always depends on the schedule for that day, how much time it will take to get your design ready, and the time to actually do the tattoo.
The best way to get a walk-in appointment is to come in for something small and simple, or to choose from the designs we already have in the shop. Many people avoid “flash” art in shops, thinking it’s all been done before, but then come in with pictures off Google, Pinterest or Instagram that tons of people have seen and perhaps used. We have thousands of great designs in the shop that have never been tattooed, and lots of artwork that can be quickly tailored to your specs.
We do welcome walk-ins, when we can fit you in. And if your project is too big to fit in quickly, we can at least get the conversation rolling about how to get a great custom design started for you.
