The minimun charge at Empire for a tattoo that falls under an hour is $105.
The shop rate is $160/hr. When booking a tattoo we ask for a $100 deposit, this comes off of the total amount of your tattoo at the end of your tattoo session. For tattoos requiring multiple sessions, it will be deducted from your final sit.
Deposits are non-refundable, however they are transferable as long as you abide by the shops deposit policy.
Our deposit policy is that we require a minimum of 48hrs notice for all cancellations. If 48 hours notice is not given, you will forfeit your deposit and be required to submit a second deposit upon rescheduling the appointment. The 48hr policy is in place to ensure that the artists have time to find another client to fill that appointment slot, as they operate as independant contractors.
If for whatever reson you need to cancel, we can carry your deposit forward into booking a new appointment in the future as long as it falls within the year.
Please show up to your appointment practicing good hygiene, well rested, fed and not under the influence of any drugs or alcohol.
Please avoid consuming alcohol the night prior to your tattoo, as it thins the blood.
Also, as a covid protocol we please ask that you don a mask to your appointment. Please bring drinks or food in a closed, secure container. Please meet up with friends and family after your appointment, so that we may limit the amount of bodies in the shop and respect the physical distance guildlines set by health board Canada.
Thank you so much for your support and cooperation, we are so excited to work with you!
