ARE YOU A STERILE ENVIRONMENT?
All of us here at Abaddon Studio are trained and use the highest of standards to ensure a clean, safe, & sterile tattoo and body piercing. All of our tattoo artists use single-use, disposable tubes; as opposed to re-usable steel tubes that need to be cleaned and autoclaved. This eliminates any risk of cross contamination due to improperly cleaned and sterilized metal tubes. All tattoo needles, tubes, ink, ointment, and other supplies set up at the time of your tattoo are all single-use only. They are all properly disposed of after your tattoo, and nothing is re-used for another client.
All jewelry is new, packaged, and sterilized in an autoclave prior to sale or piercing. All piercing tools and equipment are properly cleaned, packaged, and sterilized in an autoclave before use. Every tool and piece of jewelry is properly packaged with a biological indicator for sterilization, and our autoclave is regularly maintained and spore tested. All equipment and surfaces are thoroughly cleaned, sanitized, disinfected, and/or sterilized before and after every tattoo and piercing.
DO YOU ACCEPT WALK-INS?
We do welcome walk-ins but cannot always guarantee that we'll be available to tattoo you that day. Walk-ins are handled on a first come, first served basis when our artists have time available. It's always best to contact us to see if we have time available.
HOW DO I BOOK AN APPOINTMENT
A non-refundable deposit of $40 is required for all appointments except full day appointments.
Full day appointments require a non-refundable $100 deposit.
The amount of the deposit is applied to the cost of the tattoo. For multi-session tattoos, the deposit will be subtracted from the final sitting.
WHAT IF I NEED TO CANCEL OR RESCHEDULE MY APPOINTMENT?
We understand that life happens and sometimes you may need to cancel or reschedule. We require 24 hours notice to reschedule your appointment, otherwise you forfeit your deposit and will be required to leave a new deposit in order to reschedule. Deposits are non-refundable, so outright cancellations are not in your best interest.
WHAT METHODS OF PAYMENT DO YOU ACCEPT?
Cash is preferred, but we also accept Venmo, PayPal, and credit cards. A 5% fee is added to all credit card payments. If using PayPal, please send payment using the Friends/Family option otherwise you pay the fee.
HOW DO I CARE FOR MY NEW TATTOO?
Each artist has his/her own method for healing. Please adhere to the instructions provided at the time of your tattoo. If you don't remember, or still have questions, feel free to contact your artist directly or contact the shop.
