CAN I CALL TO BOOK AN APPOINTMENT?

We don't take appointments over the phone for tattoos as a cash deposit is required for the booking but we can arrange a consultation for you, where you discuss a prospective tattoo and then make a booking with a deposit when you come in.  Consultations are free of charge. 

For piercings no deposit is required to make a booking so we can take bookings over the phone.

 

AT THE CONSULTATION HOW SHOULD I PREPARE?

At your tattoo consultation it should take no more than 15 minutes.  Bring all references/images/ideas with you so your chosen artist can discuss them with you.  You may also send them inadvance to fudoshintattoos@hotmail.com so that the artist can prepare and have more ideas for you.  Please note the artists do not draw up a design for you for your consultation.  Designs are only done once a deposit is put down and an appointment booked.

Piercing consultations vary especially when discussing jewellery.
