How much do tattoos cost?

Cost depends upon size, content, and placement. We reserve the right to quote a total for the whole piece, or an hourly amount, which is $100/hr.

Do you have a shop minimum?

Yes, $60.00 is our minimum.

Do I need an appointment?

Appointments are recommended to ensure you can a get a tattoo from who you want, when you want. We do take walk-ins! Walk-ins are done on a first come, first served basis. Often our days are booked pretty full, so we suggest calling first.

Can I book my appointment over the phone?

Yes, you can call us, email us, send us a FB message-- however you want. Just a heads up: often we are very busy and sometimes it will not be possible to get you in right away. Also, if you have a large piece in mind that needs to be drawn up first, try to give our artists a few days to draw it before scheduling your appointment; consult with them and get an appt. a few days later.

I'm under 18, can my parent/guardian sign for me?

Absolutely Not! 18, no exceptions!

Can you draw something up for me?

Yes, please talk to your artist and be prepared to give some references. Try not to be vague, and try not to cram 10 pounds of shit into a 5 pound bag.

Can I bring my own drawing?

Absolutley! Some drawings may need to be slightly altered in order to be tattooable, and we can do that.

How much do piercings cost?

Price depends upon placement and complexity. We offer a wide range of piercings, and ask you to call ahead or contact us to speak with our piercer about what you want.

Do I need an appointment?

It is recommended you call ahead and schedule a time. Piercings do not take as long as tattoos, but Tried & True's piercer is Erin, the second tattoo artist, and may be in the middle of a tattoo, which she can not stop during. Tried & True does take piercing walk-ins, and walk-ins are done as a first come, first served basis.

Do you do Microdermals?

Yes we do! Erin, our piercer, has been doing microdermals for over 9 years.

I'm under 18, can I be pierced?

You need to bring a parent/legal guardian, with their ID as well (which Tried & True photocopies). Certain piercings can not be done for minors (IE: genitals, nipples, microdermals). As always, everything is the subject of the discretion of the shop. Your best bet would be to have your parent call us (518.283.9000) and ask, if you are underage.

Do you use a piercing gun?

No! And we don't recommend it! All piercings are done with a sterile, single-use needle.
