Getting Tattooed at Jinks


Interested in getting tattooed at Jinks?


 Do you have tattoo related question?


How does the consultation process work?

Please email through the Book Now button to set up a time for your consultation.  Please bring your ideas and any reference material on the subject matter.  The consultation is free and will take approximately 15-20 minutes.  At the end of your consultation we will book your appointment.  At this time your $50 deposit is required.

Do you do custom drawings?

Yes, we always want to custom draw your tattoo.  We want each client to have a unique and individual piece. We do not copy other peoples tattoos.  During your consultation the artist will have a good idea of how long it will take to draw your artwork. 

How old do you have to be to get tattooed?

You must be 18 to be tattooed. No ifs, and or buts about it!!! We check photo ID.  

 Is it painful?

Yes.  Some areas are more painful than others.  Sternum, ribs, hands, feet, knees, elbows, inner thighs & inner arms are the most painful.  It’s important to prepare yourself for your upcoming tattoo session.  This will make the process more comfortable.  Refrain from partying the night before. Get a good night sleep, stay hydrated and eat a good meal before your appointment.  Alcohol and drugs (marijuana, ibuprofen etc…) are blood thinners. These will make it more painful and uncomfortable during the tattoo session.  

Should I eat before I get tattooed?

Yes, sometimes a tattoo may take a few hours.  You don’t want to be sitting there on an empty stomach which could make you feel restless. Also, food gives you energy which will help you endure the tattoo session, especially if the tattoo is in a painful location. Real food, not fast food!!

Do you have Gift Certificates?

Yes. Gift certificates are available in any denomination.

Do you have a minimum charge?

Yes.  There is a minimum charge of $100 for any tattoo.  This is also the usual cost for a tattoo that takes less than one hour to complete.  However, there may be factors that will increase the cost, such as; custom artwork, placement and colours. The minimum charge does not apply to hands, fingers, face, head or feet. And it only applies to one tattoo. 

How much will my tattoo cost?

We charge $140 per hour plus HST. The total price of your tattoo will depend on the length of time it takes to tattoo, custom artwork, and aftercare.  We cannot quote an exact price for your tattoo, we can only give you a rough idea.   

Is there a deposit fee?

Yes. A deposit of $50-$100 is taken during your consultation, when you make your tattoo appointment. The deposit will be deducted from the final cost of your tattoo.  If your tattoo consists of more then one sitting, the deposit will be deducted at your final sitting. PLEASE NOTE: All deposits are non-refundable. It will be used towards custom artwork or forfeited if tattooing hasn’t begun within six months.
