We have different tattoo services based on the size and the complexity of the tattoo (more details or more shading). All tattoo services are a flat price and include tax and tip—clear for you, kind for our team.

  • The Subtle Ephemeral ($195) are tiny to small tattoos with minimal to no shading.

No worries if you’re on the fence about your size or product type. You’ll finalize this in the studio during your consultation before the tattooing begins.

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. Standouts sit in the middle taking about 2 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 available in BLACK ink only. Not only is it the most popular tattoo color, it’s preferred by most tattoo artists and allows fine-line work to stand out.

We are developing Ephemeral color ink (hint: 🔴). It’s a delicate process and takes time, but it’s on the horizon. Sign up for our newsletter in the footer to be the first to hear when new Ephemeral colors become available!

You must be 18+ to get an Ephemeral tattoo, regardless of parental consent.

Yes, our ink is vegan—we don’t use any animal-derived ingredients or byproducts.
