For tattooing, bring your Valid ID proving that you are 18 or older. Remember: You MUST be 18 years or older with a Valid ID in order to get a tattoo from Think Ink Tattoos. No exceptions! We do not do "Parental Consent" tattoos. We do not tattoo anyone, for any reason, under the age of 18.
For piercing adults 18 and over bring your Valid ID. For piercing minors under the age of 18 you MUST have Parental Consent, with the following qualifications: A Parent must be present. Both Minor and Parent must each have Valid ID with the same last name. If last names are different, a Birth Certificate is required.
A "Valid ID" is any legal, current document that has both your photo and birth date; such as Drivers License, Military ID, Passport or Residency Card.
Bathe or take a shower before you come in because you want the area of your body being tattooed or pierced to be clean. Besides, don't you want to smell nice for us? However, don't use any heavy lotions, oils or perfumes on the area being tattooed or pierced.
Eat at least 1 to 4 hours before your appointment.
Drink a lot of water or non-alcoholic, non-caffeinated beverages. Keep yourself hydrated.
Wear comfortable clothes. Think reasonably when getting dressed for your appointment, if you are having a forearm tattooed, wear short sleeves. Calf or leg, wear shorts, etc.
No aspirin, ibuprofen or alcoholic beverages for a minimum of 24 hours before your appointment/coming in. All of these are blood thinners and may cause excessive bleeding if taken before your tattoo or piercing.
No alcohol or drugs on the day of your service. Not only will the alcohol thin your blood, the drugs and alcohol will actually intensify pain and make you unsuitable for tattooing or piercing. If we suspect that you are under the influence of drugs or alcohol we will refuse service.
ARTWORK, DESIGNS AND LETTERING
Please don't show us your design on your phone, iPad, tablet or other mobile device - print it out before you come in on full letter-size paper and bring that in for your artist. This saves valuable tattoo and ink time!
If your tattoo will have lettering, such as a quote or phrase, please visit www.1001fonts.com or www.dafont.com and print out the font sample you want for your lettering and bring that in - this too will save valuable tattoo and ink time!
