FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

The first step to getting your one of a kind tattoo is to have some images ready of your tattoo theme/topic. Your next step is to make a consultation with an artist to discuss ideas. After discussing ideas with the artist, they will help you set up an appointment and draw up your piece for you. At Skin City Tattoo Studio, we strive to make every piece one of a kind. We want your tattoo to be something that you will love to have on your skin!

We strive for superior cleanliness at Skin City! Our shop is cleaned every morning before the artists even arrive. All of our needles are single use. They are sterilized and individually sealed when they arrive to us. The needles are disposed of in a sharps container after each use.

You must be 18 years or older in the state of North Carolina to get a tattoo.

We start piercings at the age of 14 with parental consent. The parent or guardian has to be present at the time of the piercing.

Please bring your ID with you to every appointment! If it is a longer appointment you may want to bring a snack and a drink with you as well.

You definitely should! Your body burns a lot of sugar while getting a tattoo due to it being a constant trauma to your skin. Eating beforehand will help keep you from getting lightheaded and dizzy while being tattooed.
