After you place your reservation, you'll recieve a design survey where you can share your inspiration and ideas. Once you book, our artists review your submissions and prepare a few drawings for your appointment.

On the day of your appointment, the artist will show you what they designed and you’ll have time to tweak/modify until it’s perfect. Please know that we want our clients to have zero regrets about their tattoo so we rarely have clients leave because they disliked the design.

After you make a reservation, you'll get a Design Survey that will tell you if your design falls into our Subtle or Statement category.

The final price of your Ephemeral depends on the exact design you want and is determined in-studio with your tattoo artist during your appointment and before you get tattooed. No surprises!

No need to tip. It's included! Our artists aren't paid on commision and are paid a salary—that's why our tip is included in all our prices.

Our prices reflect our philosophy of providing artists with financial security and to fund continous improvements in our experience.
