You can call the shop at (289) 556-6026 or visit the shop in person at 10-12 John Street N. to book an appointment and pay your deposit with cash or by credit/debit.
In order to make an appointment with any of our artists, nail techs, and aestheticians, we must first collect a non-refundable deposit. The deposit will be $50 per hour of work scheduled. Online booking will require a 50% deposit. No deposit = no work will be done. You can pay the deposit in person at the shop or through Interact etransfer (firstname.lastname@example.org) The deposit is applied to the cost of the tattoo on the day that it is completed, unless there is a less than 24-hour reschedule, a cancellation (at any time), a no-show, or if you are more than 15 minutes late to your appointment. In those cases, the deposit will be forfeit to pay for the artist/nail tech/aesthetician's time.
Since deposits are non-refundable they are not refunded at any point regardless of when an appointment is canceled. We’ll need a new deposit to reschedule your appointment. PLEASE ACCOUNT FOR TRAFFIC AND PARKING WHEN PLANNING YOUR DRIVE TIME. Traffic can be an issue in Hamilton and parking is always challenging. We don’t have a parking lot, but there is a pay to park lot behind Lulu's Shawarma and another behind Greek Palace.
Our staff book up pretty solid each week in advance. While normally it’s usually very rare that someone doesn’t show up for an appointment, has to cancel at the last minute, or is more than 15 minutes late, it does happen. That’s when we have to take the non-refundable $50 deposit to cover our time and this is why:
You deposit will be forfeited in full in the case of:
If, for some reason, you didn’t put down a deposit with your artist/nail tech/aesthetician, (perhaps you earned their trust as a reliable client or caught them at a moment when they forgot to ask for the deposit), a cancellation/rescheduling will require a Rescheduling Fee of $50.
Reasons for a Rescheduling Fee include:
· You don’t show up to your appointment.
· You cancel your appointment (at any time).
· You don’t give us at least 24 hours notice to reschedule an appointment.
· You are more than 15 minutes late for your appointment (again, PLEASE call even if you are going to be one minute late to let us know you are on your way)
· You show up, but you have decided to get a different tattoo/nail style/hair service than what was previously discussed.
We would all love to be able to create our art for free, but we are all full-time tattoo artists/nail techs/aestheticians and depend on this income to support ourselves and our families. We want to offer you an awesome service and also a great experience getting it. Frustration over missed appointments can tarnish a great experience for all of us.
*There is one important note. We keep a very clean studio and need to be attentive to germs and infection risk. If you are sick or contagious in any way (especially during this Covid-19 pandemic) please call us to cancel your appointment and we will discuss the deposit at that time.
You will be billed at the artist's current hourly rate, starting at your scheduled appointment time, for all tattooing and tattoo-related services, Including, but not limited to:
Due to a massive influx of No Call, No Shows recently, we are requiring ALL appointments made online to have a deposit put down before any work is done.
No deposit, no appointment.
