Frequently Asked Questions
APPRENTICESHIPS AND PIERCING
Anthem Tattoo is not offering apprenticeships at the moment.
Also, we do not offer any piercing services.
The artists at Anthem Tattoo do NOT tattoo anyone under the age of 18. In our collective experience, tattooing minors, even with parental consent, causes more problems than it cures.
However, if you'd like to come in and have consultation and prepare for your first tattoo as your 18th birthday approaches, we'd be happy to work with you!
SHOP HOURS AND SCHEDULING
Anthem Tattoo is currently open Tuesday thru Saturdays from noon until 8pm. We are CLOSED Sundays and Mondays. Please call or stop by during business hours to set up a consultation or appointment as needed.
While we do try to offer walk-ins every day, we occasionally get booked up or may need to schedule an appointment for larger pieces that require extra drawing time.
Consultations allow you to have one on one time with your artist to discuss your tattoo in detail and cover all of the essential parts to be sure that you are getting the best possible outcome for your permanent piece of personal art. When possible, we try our best to work with out of town clients through email, but the more in person attention we can give your idea, the better we can execute the design.
DEPOSITS, MINIMUMS and RATES
We require a deposit to make an appointment. This will be discussed with your artist during your consultation. This deposit will be subtracted from the final price or last session of the tattoo.
Anthem tattoo has a shop minimum of $80 and a hourly rate of $150. Most single session tattoos can be priced out by the artist during the consultation.
All deposits are non-refundable and non-transferable
While tipping is NOT required, it is always appreciated!
Should you need to cancel or reschedule a future appointment we ask for a 24 hours notice, otherwise you forfeit your deposit.
