Evolution Ink LLC Studio Policies

     Evolution Ink LLC, is about evolving the way the community interacts with the tattooing industry by providing an insight to the artistic process of tattooing in a calm, relaxing, salon/spa like environment, for a potentially high stress, high intensity procedure. We take care in understanding that this may be a brand new experience for you at our studio (or in general), and we want to make sure your experience exceeds every expectation you have (and all the ones your friends told you about) when looking for your new exclusive studio. We avoid the typical tattoo “parlor” image, with their loud music, overstimulating decor, and unreliable artists, experiences that have plagued the tattoo industry for decades.

     We pride ourselves on the high standards we set for our artists with professional, courteous, engaging, and qualified artists to create custom tattoo pieces, while also providing an experience of excellence. We also ask that our clients  offer the same respect to our artists.

Please read the following Studio and Booking Policies: **If you have any questions regarding these policies, please ask  for clarification prior to booking!**

  • NO CHILDREN UNDER THE AGE OF 18 YEARS OLD will be a allowed in the studio.

      • At the discretion of each artist, adolescents aged 16-17 years old, may be tattooed with a notarized letter giving parental consent, AND a parent or legal guardian present for the first 30 minutes of actual tattooing time, or for the entire duration of the appointment (preferred).

  • In order to comply with our high standards for hygiene, sterility, and comfort of our artists, we ask that you please arrive to your appointment showered/bathed.  Your body will be undergoing a potentially high stress procedure, and perspiration is normal, however, due to the relative close proximity our artist are working next to your body, we ask that every attempt at personal cleanliness be attempted.

      • Your artist reserves the right to cancel your appointment if the above policy is not met.

      • If you feel your artist does not meet this policy, you have the right to request your appointment be rescheduled with your current artist, or another who is willing to rework your design.

      • As stated above, you cannot reschedule your appointment with less than 24 hours before your appointment without forfeiture of your deposit.

  • Artist rates are hourly and varies depending on artist, the type of tattooing work being done, length of tattoo time, etc..  Artist’s minimum charge is one (1) hour, and their time will be billed in one (1) hour minimums. Partial hours, unless specifically booked, will be rounded up to the next hour.

      • At the completion of your consultation, your artist will instruct you on how many hours you need to book for the specifications they have determined.  You will need to book that exact number of hours, or your artist may not have time to complete your piece and may need to reschedule your appointment, resulting in a forfeiture of your deposit for that appointment.

      • Your guest is there for emotional support and suggestions ONLY IF ASKED. Full Stop. It is your body, and your tattoo. Your opinion is the say all, end all.

      • Your guest must not interfere with the tattooing process, by means of being overly talkative so the artist cannot concentrate, touching or stepping in sterile areas.

  • The safety of our artists is a main priority and will be considered at ALL TIMES during your appointment. Any and all measures will be taken to ensure the safety and wellbeing of our employees.
