Yes. We require a deposit for every tattoo appointment scheduled; it holds the appointment time for you and ultimately goes toward the cost of the tattoo. This deposit is paid for at the time of booking the appointment and we accept deposits with debit/credit over the phone or cash in person. The amount of the deposit depends on how the length of the appointment you’re scheduling for:
1-2 hours $70 deposit
3-4 hours $150 deposit
5+ hours $300 deposit
Keep in mind when scheduling that ALL deposits are 100% NON-REFUNDABLE. We are always happy to reschedule appointments, free of charge, before 24 hours of your tattoo appointment. However, if you reschedule or cancel less than 24 hours before your appointment or don’t call/don’t show you will forfeit your deposit and we will require a new one to reschedule.
YES! Our artists love to have the opportunity to do custom work! If you’re not sure which artist you’d like to work with we recommend checking out their portfolios [Artists] (link to artist page) to see whose style suits you best. Once you know which artist you’d prefer you’ll want to call the shop and set up a free consultation. Consultations give you an opportunity to meet with your artists and chat with them about your ideas
For 18+: Montana state law requires a valid ID to get tattooed.For Minors: Montana state law requires that all minors getting pierced or tattooed must have a parent/guardian present during the entirety of the tattoo. The parent must sign a waiver of consent for the minor to be pierced or tattooed. Both the parent AND the minor must provide valid photo IDs at the time of the appointment. If the last names on these IDs are different, a birth certificate is required as well. Step-parents are NOT allowed to consent for step-children unless they are able to provide adoption papers proving guardianship. For special guardianship situations please give the shop a call at 406-728-1191 to determine what documentation you will need to bring to your appointment.
