FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What is required to Able TO GET A TATTOO?

You must be at least 18 years of age. It is against New York State law (Section 260.21) to tattoo any minor, even with parental consent. In accordance with this law, a strict No Minors policy is enforced. You must be 18 years of age, with a valid State or Federal Photo ID as proof. *No exceptions.*


Are "Walk-Ins" accepted?

Yes, walk-ins are presently being accepted.


How can I schedule an appointment?

  • By phone, at (914) 920-9944, or

  • By sending a detailed message via email, or Instagram @skaer_city, with a description of the design and size, any photo reference, and preferred dates to come in for a free consultation. You can expect a reply within five (5) business days of your initial contact.

HOW MUCH DOES A TATTOO COST?

All tattoos start at $100, although the final price is based on time. The size, level of detail, and location of the tattoo on the body, among other things, all affect the time it takes to complete the work.

  • All sessions are decided on and paid for upfront, before any tattooing commences.
  • All Re-Work and Cover-Up work is charged a higher rate.
  • Session rates are visible here.

How can I get an estimate?

The most accurate way to get quotes is by booking a free consultation to meet in person. To quote your tattoo concept, many details need to be considered such as the subject, size, placement on the body, detail, etc. Consultations are generally scheduled seven (7) days a week, between 1PM-7PM, based on availability.


Can you draw something up for me?

Yes! I would love to. Custom artwork starts at $200. This fee is for the time to create the artwork only. It does not count as a deposit, and it does not apply towards the cost of the tattoo. The Artist retains all physical and intellectual property rights of the artwork created. A free consultation is the best way to get custom artwork for your tattoo.


 

Do tattoos hurt?

ALL tattoos hurt to some degree. This varies on each individual's pain threshold and is somewhat relative to where you're receiving the tattoo. That being said, getting tattooed is said to induce a "relaxing, and enjoyable" type of pain.


HOW LONG DOES A TATTOO TAKE TO HEAL?

It takes months for the skin to fully cure, but after roughly two weeks the tattoo is healed to the touch.


How do I take care of my new tattoo?

After your tattoo, you will receive detailed instructions in writing with recommended methods of care.


WHAT FORMS OF PAYMENT ARE ACCEPTED?

Cash or Venmo payments are the current options available.


DO I NEED TO MAKE A DEPOSIT to schedule an appointment?

Yes. Deposits and will be credited to the final session of your tattoo. Appointments may remain flexible ONLY up to 48 hours prior to the tattoo. Deposits are NON-REFUNDABLE and NON-TRANSFERABLE and forfeited in the event of a missed appointment.


HOW SHOULD I PREPARE FOR MY TATTOO?

There are no serious measures to be taken. As a general rule of thumb, it is best to be well-rested and well-fed the day of your tattoo. Hydration is very important on that day, as well as throughout your healing process and thereafter. Any lifestyle habits which affect the skin will indefinitely affect the tattoo as well. Alcohol can cause dehydration and can increase bleeding for up to 24 hours, which can affect the healing process. Excess blood can dilute the pigments used, jeopardizing the appearance and integrity of your tattoo. Patience, Trust, and Discipline are recommended, otherwise simply enjoy your tattoo!
