02. IN THE STUDIO
On the day of your appointment, artists will adjust designs, try out placements, and finalize price. Then it’s time to stencil and tattoo!
“Let’s try some size options to find the right one for you.”
03. HEALING & AFTERCARE
No need to buy aftercare supplies -- we'll provide a goodie bag with everything you need.
“Message your studio if you have any questions, we are here for you!"
04. ENJOY YOUR FADE
Your tattoo will start getting lighter and lighter over time. Ephemeral ink is Made-to-Fade, your tattoo timeline will differ from others.
“I wanted to test the design before deciding if I wanted to commit to a traditional tattoo that will be around forever.”

The exact price of your tattoo will be decided with the artist in the studio once you've reviewed and confirmed your design.
The Subtle Ephemeral, small and simple tattoo designs, are $195 - $245.
The Statement Ephemeral, more complex and intricate tattoos with shading, are $350- $550.
Our prices reflect our philosophy of providing artists with guaranteed income, include up to 20% tips for all artists, include aftercare products for all clients and fund continous improvements in our experience.
Appointments range from 1-4 hours depending on the complexity, size, and placement of your tattoo.
Most of our Subtle tattoos (smaller, simple) will take about 1-2 hours while Statement tattoos (larger, more shading, and intricate designs) can take up to 4 hours. These time estimates include your artist consultation and your aftercare experience.
Made-to-Fade tattoos are administered with a tattoo machine, just like a permanent tattoo. So, yes, they can hurt!
However, the pain may be different than you think. People often describe the sensation as a vibration ranging from a light scratch (fleshy areas) to a sharper buzz (in more bony regions). Some people even like the feeling!
Here are some quick tips to get through the (temporary) pain:
1) Make sure to eat a hearty meal before your appointment.
2) Don’t come intoxicated. It’s against our policy and makes it hurt more!
3) Stay hydrated (we’ve got drinks and snacks at the studio) and take deep breaths throughout the tattooing process.
4) Ask your artist to take breaks to help ease the sensation.
5) And remember—the pain isn’t forever (just like our tattoos)!
All Ephemeral tattoos are currently done in black ink since it’s the most popular color, is preferred by most tattoo artists, and looks great with fine line work.
You must be 18+ to get an Ephemeral tattoo, regardless of parental consent.
