All tattoo clients at Dusk Till Dawn Ink are entitled to one (1) to three (3) free touch-up on their tattoo within six (6) months of receiving their tattoo. This depends on the placement of the tattoo; your Artist will let you know how many touch-ups you’re entitled to during or after the final sitting of the tattoo.
However, where poor aftercare, accidental damage, picking and scratching, exposure to severe elements, sudden and drastic weight gain or loss are present, you forfeit your right to a free touch-up. Free touch-ups apply to artist errors and or omissions. Remember that your skin type, age, natural pigmentation, skin defects (acne, discolorations, large pores, etc), and overall physical condition will be the greatest determining factor in how close to perfect you tattoo can look.
METHODS OF PAYMENT
We accept Cash, all major Credit Cards. We also have an ATM on site.
All artists have portfolios on our Facebook page (dusktilldawninkcalgary), Website (www.dusktilldawntattoos.ca) as well as hard copies of their portfolios in the shop. At any time, you can look at these portfolios and see if one of our artists appeals to you. If you come into the shop with your reference material or email your reference material to email@example.com, the Dusk Till Dawn Ink reception team and management team can recommend an artist that will best suit the tattoo design you want.
YOUR CHILDREN/CHILD ON SITE
You can bring your child to the shop for your tattoo consult, but unfortunately children are not allowed in the shop during your actual tattoo appointment. Children become distracting to the artists and other clients, so we ask that you please make other arrangements for your child on the day of your appointment. We are a tattoo shop, an innately adult environment where cursing, nudity and innuendoes are the norm.
PLEASE BE PATIENT
While we try to stay on top of drawings and appointments, sometimes a cancellation is needed if the artist is not happy with the artwork or becomes sick. Please remember artists are only one person, can only do so much work and sometimes get run down. We do not want to tattoo if we are not completely happy with the artwork or are not feeling well. Your tattoo is with you for life and should be the best it can possibly be.
Any client that displays abusive, rude, disrespectful or obscene behavior will not be tolerated and will be escorted from the shop immediately; losing all rights to be welcome back to Dusk Till Dawn Ink in the future. We reserve the right to refuse service.
