Frequently Asked Questions
How much for a sleeve?
There is no simple answer to this question. As a shop, we charge by the hour. There are many factors that go into determining the final price of a tattoo. The artist, the size of the area you are wanting tattooed, the intricacy of the patterns, your skin type, etc. Each of these things will play a role in deciding the final price. The best thing to do is to schedule a consultation to come in and speak to an artist directly so they can give you an estimated time frame of how long it will take to complete the piece you are wanting to get. You can call the shop directly to schedule a consultation.
Can you design a piece for me to get tattooed by another artist?
Unfortunately, we do not create pieces for other artists to tattoo on you. We do, however, have trusted affiliates around the world. Send us an email to inquire about contacting them.
I found this tattoo online, can you do the same thing?
We are happy to take inspiration from anything you bring in but we will not copy anything exactly. Tribal tattoos are sacred and usually specific to the person that receives it. If you copy a tribal tattoo, you may be wearing someone else’s life’s story on you. With that being said, PLEASE do not copy any of the artwork you see on our page! Each piece is uniquely designed for each client based off their life and ancestral background.
Why shouldn't I go to the cheapest tattooist I can find?
We say it all the time “Good tattoos aren’t cheap; Cheap tattoos aren’t good”. If you feel our prices are outside of your comfort zone, I assure you, you’ll end up paying more, in the long run, to cover up a bad tattoo or even get it removed. We pride ourselves on the quality of our work.
How can I get a Filipino Tattoo?
There are 2 options for getting a traditional Filipino tattoo with us… General Filipino Patterns, which are the most commonly found patterns around the Philippines. This requires no research, you could call the shop directly to schedule a consultation or tattoo appointment. Or get a Custom Chart of Patterns created, these are patterns specifically tailored to your story.
To get a custom chart of patterns, fill out the questionnaire under the 'Mark of the Four Waves' tab.
Getting a custom chart does require a research fee based on the area you are wanting to get tattooed. Send us an email to SJTAT2@HOTMAIL.COM to inquire.
