What is Your Tattoo Design Process Like?

Our first step is to review any photos or images you have that are an inspiration for your tattoo design.  If you have photos or images that illustrate your tattoo design vision, please email them to: teams@ravenstattooshop.com.   

You can also text your photos or images to: 571-451-3566.   Please include the location on your body as well as the size in inches of your desired tattoo design.   Once we receive your information we will be able to consult with you on your design ideas.

What Days Do You Schedule Appointments?

We do our best to schedule your appointments at the times and days that are most convenient for you. When scheduling an appointment, please specify if you prefer weekends or weekdays. 

Is There A Deposit Requirement?

A $50 deposit is required to secure your appointment. The deposit amount is deducted from your total amount due at the completion of your tattoo.

Appointments are not confirmed until we receive your initial deposit.

Which Payment Types Do You Accept?

Deposits and payments can be made via Zelle 571-451-3566 or Venmo (@ravenstattooz) 

What Is Your Cancellation Policy?

We require 24-hour advance notice if you need to cancel or reschedule an appointment.

Deposits are non-refundable for same day cancellations or no shows. In the event you provide less than 24-hour notice or do not attend your scheduled appointment a new deposit will be required for rescheduling.

What Are Your Rates?

We charge $160 per hour.  We charge a minimum fee of $100 for tattoos that take less than 30 minutes from preparation to completion (hands, fingers, face or head tattoos excluded).  

The timer starts as soon as we start preparing you and your tattoo set up until completion. The timer gets paused during breaks.    Larger tattoos may require more than one session. 

What If I Am Not Feeling Well The Day of My Appointment?

IF YOU ARE SICK OR SUSPECT YOU MAY BE SICK PLEASE DO NOT GET TATTOOED   

If your immune system is compromised your tattoos might not heal properly.

We reserve the right to cancel your appointment if we suspect that you might be sick.  You will not lose your deposit if you need to reschedule an appointment due to illness. 

How Do I Prepare For My Tattooing Appointment?

It is important that you be well rested and eat some food before your tattoo appointment.  Wear comfortable loose clothes to your appointment.   

Bring a set of headphones and some music/podcast to keep yourself distracted while we work.  

Avoid drinking alcohol, or taking blood thinners before your tattoo appointment because they can cause excessive bleeding which would repel the ink. 

How Do I Care For My New Tattoo?

It is very important to follow the aftercare instructions below as best as possible to ensure proper healing.   We recommend using a product called Saniderm, which is like a thin membrane that will go over your skin for the first four days. Your tattoo will be isolated and will be producing plasma which will keep your tattoo moisturized for the first four days. This will show us a brown liquid, sometimes black or red underneath the plastic. This is commonly called the ink sac.   

After the 4th day the plastic membrane can be removed by taking a hot shower (but not so hot that it could damage your skin). The warm shower water will make the plastic very soft so that it will slide off easily.   Proceed to wash the tattoo’d area with unscented antibacterial soap and then apply a thin layer of Aquaphor over the tattoo. Repeat every 3 hours or as needed.  

Your tattoo must be kept clean and moisturized. You may experience some scabbing which will make your skin feel very itchy.  Avoid scratching the tattoo because scratching can cause a scar.    

Avoid swimming and tanning while your tattoo is healing. Swimming can potentially cause infections and tanning can cause scarring.   Your tattoo is very sensitive. Please stick to your aftercare procedures until it’s fully healed.
