HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO GET AN APPOINTMENT?

All our tattooers have a bit of a following, but we'll accomodate you to the best of our availability. As a general rule, we consider preparation to be a strong ally of good tattooing. The sooner you book, the faster you'll get tattooed.

DO YOU EVER DO WALK-INS?

Sure. If we have openings and you come well prepared, we'll gladly do walk-in projects that can be sound tattoos. But don't rush something you'll have for life.

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST TO GET A PIECE AT YOUR SHOP?

Our rate is 140$ per hour plus taxes. It applies to the hours of actual tattooing and it covers all preparation, design and consultation. Potential touch ups are free, providing you follow basic aftercare guidelines and come see us within a year of the tattoo being completed. We stand by our work.

Our tattooers are all very experienced, which means that on top of their expertise, you also get technical efficiency. Less time spent to get better tattoos. That's the deal. If you want a serious estimation come see us and book a consultation.

HOW DO I GET A TATTOO AT IMAGO?

Come see us or call the shop to get a consultation with the tattooer of your choice. There you'll be able to talk about your tattoo project, get insight from one of our experienced tattooer and a time /price evaluation. If you and your tattooer see eye to eye and are ready to commit to the project, we'll ask for a 20% deposit of estimated price of the work. That amount is deducted from the price of your tattoo on the final session. It's not an extra charge, but mearly a guarantee of your engagment in the process and a green light for us to proceed with reserving time for tattoo sessions and work on your tattoo design.

HOW SHOULD I PREPARE FOR MY APPOINTMENT?

Rest and eat well before your tattoo session. Make sure you're healthy and clean. Avoid consuming alcohol the night before and the day of your tattoo. Let us know ahead of any health condition that might affect the tattooing or healing process.

HOW DO I CARE FOR MY NEW TATTOO?

Follow the instructions your tattooer gives you. Ignore divergent advice from your entourage. Keep your tattoo clean. Keep it out of the sun. Don't pick at it, don't scratch it don't rub it. Be gentle with it and wash your hands before touching it. Avoid swimming before it's healed. Short showers are fine. Avoid using any products on it, other than the moisturizer recommended by your tattooer. Don't hesitate to call or come in if you have any questions.

ARE YOUR NEEDLES CLEAN?

The short answer is: yes. We obviously use sterile disposible needles.  We respect a rigourous aseptic procedure and all the products used in our tattooing process are new, safe and single-use. Our stainless steel tools are cleaned and sterilized on the premises, as we maintain and operate a small sterilization facility. Our autoclave is registered and tested in a regular professional monitoring program. Feel free to ask your tattooer anything that concerns equipment and procedure. We're glad to give as much info as needed.

 

ARE YOU GUYS EVER ON TV?

 

As little as possible. We're too busy tattooing to hone our acting skills. No seriously, we've done our part to inform the general public and represent tattooing in mainstream media back in the old days. But now it's all entertainment and there's very little reality in TV. So we prefer to leave it to those it may interest. We focus on the craft.
