We hope to facilitate a safe space for transformation in our community.
Where our clients leave here imbued with the energy of their tattoo as well as an amazing piece of body art.
We are giving the community a space to become more of their true selves.
Tattooing can be a method of carving away to reveal the truth underneath and like Charon the ferryman, we help people to step into the unknown and liminal space while navigating their own personal evolution.
How do I book an appointment?
Please use the contact form on the website, or send an email to email@example.com
Can I bring my friends and family?
Due to COVID there will only be one artist and one client allowed in the tattoo area. If you have others with you, they will be allowed to visit the gallery space or in the small waiting area.
How long should I expect to be there?
Generally there is about 30 min of prep before starting. Things such as filling out paperwork, finalizing or adjusting designs, making a stencil, setting up the tattoo area etc. This will most likely be longer due to COVID!
How do consultations work?
Consultations are about 20 to 40 minutes and are free!
comfort, or to meet the artist. This is time for the client to express what
they would like, and impart any important information to your artist about
comfort, meaning, and specific needs or thoughts. Leah offers Reiki, guided meditation, and space for spiritual practice if the client is interested, and is happy to discuss this practice during the consultation.
A consultation usually includes conversation about availability, images and
references and deposit.
What if I get Covid?
I will hold your deposit and we can reschedule for the future after you are safely through the illness. Please let me know as far in advance as possible.
Should I tip?
Yes, it's customary to tip your artist if you're happy with your tattoo, or felt you got extra attention. A good tip is 15-20% of the total cost of your tattoo including deposit, similar to what you might leave in a restaurant, but any token of gratitude is appreciated so feel free to get creative!
How do deposits work?
Deposits work as a placeholder to guarantee your appointment date and are required to secure your appointment. All appointments require deposits.
Deposit may be forfeited for the following reasons:
• No call/No show.
• Showing up more than 1 hour late with no communication
• Canceling within 48 hours of your appointment (case by case basis)
• Deciding not to get tattooed after making an appointment
• Showing signs of intoxication
• Disruptive or rude behavior
The deposit covers a fraction of the time and emotional labor spent consulting, drawing and preparing as well as the time reserved in the schedule that was declined to others. It is still non-refundable if the client decides not to go through with the tattoo.

Other Tattoo FAQ
Can I get tattooed if I am under the age of 18?
Does getting tattooed hurt?
Yes. However, it varies greatly between different people and locations on the body. Every individual is different and there is no way to predict how getting a certain tattoo will feel to you. Being well rested and well fed, as well as going into the tattoo with a calm, positive state of mind can be very helpful. I will make the process as comfortable as possible, but for those who know they are extra sensitive, ask about booking multiple short sessions to complete the tattoo rather than one or two long ones. I can also advise on specialized numbing products if this is something you are interested in trying.
Do you use latex?
Are your products vegan?
The brands of tattoo ink used all state on their websites that they ARE vegan.

“To the ancients aesthetics art was not only the science of beauty, but that discipline whereby each individual in his quest for truth might elevate his own level of functioning so as to become luminous with the reflected light of Universal Beauty, and ultimately identical therewith…”
