Frequently Asked Questions

Answers to Your Questions

Do I need an appointment?

Yes! Fire Flower is an appointment only studio.

How much does it cost?

Pricing is based on size, location, and amount of detail. Shop minimum is $100, and we run an hourly rate of $150. For a more specific price, please reach out to an artist.

What should I do to prepare for getting the tattoo?

To give yourself the best chance at having an amazing tattoo session:

  • Lotion the area you are getting tattooed every day for a week leading up to the appointment.

  • Eat a hardy meal before coming in. Tattoos are very stressful to the body, we want to keep your sugars up!

  • Stay hydrated! It is important you keep hydrated before, during, and after your tattoo. You will quickly feel faint otherwise. 

  • No alcohol within 24 hours of your tattoo. Alcohol is a blood thinner, and will interfere with your body's natural clotting abilities. We know you may be nervous, but please avoid alcohol the day leading up to your appointment date.

Does it hurt and is it safe?

The pain from getting a tattoo is unpleasant, but by no means unbearable. We work in a safe, clean and sterile environment and use disposable materials.

Do you do coverups.

Yes, but because of the unique nature of a well designed coverup we need to see your tattoo first. You will have to discuss this with your artist.

Does your shop take card?

Yes, We also accept cash and card as well as PayPal transaction.

Do you sell all the aftercare products I’ll need?
