I WANT A TATTOO NOW WHAT DO I DO?
Request a FREE Tattoo Consult (HERE) or give us a call at the shop. Walk-ins are also available.
HOW ARE TATTOOS PRICED?
Each artist has their own hourly rate so the best thing to do is come in and see the artist. If you are out of state, we will work with you on a rough estimate but a firm price cannot be given. *Quotes cannot be given over the phone or email.
AM I SUPPOSED TO TIP?
Yes, you tip a waitress for a job well done, so tip your artist for a job well done.
DO I NEED AN APPOINTMENT?
No, walk-ins are ALWAYS welcome. However,complex custom-work may require preparation, research, and drawing time. For your convenience, our artists offer a flexible appointment schedule so that we are able to best accommodate your needs.
HOW DO I BOOK AN APPOINTMENT?
Review our artists' portfolios either here in the shop or online and make a decision as to with which of our artists you would like to work. Free Consultations are available. One of our helpful counter staff will then find the appropriate time and date to fit your schedule. Once your appointment dates are selected, a non-refundable deposit is collected. If you book more than one appointment for larger pieces of art, a single deposit is held for all the appointments and deducted from the final total of the last appointment at the completion of the tattoo. If your schedule changes and you need to move your appointment, please contact the shop within 48 hours of your appointment or your deposit will be forfeited. (Example: $100 deposit + $300 total balance due = $200 paid.)
WHAT DO I NEED TO BRING IN WITH ME?
Empyrean Tattoo is a custom shop equipped with the highest caliber custom tattoo artists. You do NOT need to bring anything except your imagination. Keep in mind that certain work may need reference material (i.e. portraits, art reproduction, foreign language text, etc.) Any reference that you bring our artist can use to gain incite into your concept and find inspiration. Our collection of experience tattoo artists prefer to create each composition just for you.
WHAT TYPE OF REFERENCE MATERIAL CAN I BRING IN?
Photographic reference is best when printed large and clear. When it comes to photographic reference, the quality of the image will affect the quality of your tattoo. All reference for inspiration is welcome and the more you have the more prepared your artist will be for you.
HOW OLD DO YOU HAVE TO BE TO GET TATTOOED?
It is illegal to tattoo anyone under the age of 18 in the state of Georgia. No, your parents cannot sign a waiver for you. All tattoo clients must be over the age of 18 and have valid state or federal issued photo id.
CAN I GET TATTOOED WHILE PREGNANT OR BREAST- FEEDING?
No. Getting tattooed while pregnant or breast-feeding has the possibility of complicating your health and that of your baby.
CAN I DRINK OR SELF MEDICATE BEFORE A TATTOO?
No, A tattoo requires your strength and concentration. You're strongest when you are fit, sober, and of a sound mind. You would not drink before a marathon; drinking and self medicating are poor substitutes for enjoying one of life's greatest gifts and tend to blur judgment.
ARE THERE ANY MEDICAL CONDITIONS I NEED TO INFORM MY ARTIST OF?
Yes, the more informed an artist is about ANY and ALL medical conditions the safer your procedure will be.
WHAT DOES EMPYREAN MEAN AND WHERE DID IT COME FROM?
Let's define the word empyrean first:
The Empyrean was used as a name for the firmament, and in Christian literature, notably the Divine Comedy and Paradise Lost, for the dwelling-place of God, the blessed, celestial beings so divine they are made of pure light, and the source of light, creativity, and creation.
Mike being a fan of both Dante and Milton, it seemed very simple for his shop to be named after the dwelling where all of creativity is born.
