FAQs

The best way to initiate the process of getting work done is to message us to arrange a consultation. Currently, due to COVID -19, consultations are being done virtually in 15 and 30-minute increments. You will want to provide any references that you might have at this time if you have not done so already. If you decide to schedule an appointment, we do require you to leave a deposit (usually $75 minimum). We accept Zelle for the deposit. The amount of the deposit will depend on the amount of work to be done.  This deposit will then be deducted from the final cost of the session.

Back pieces and sleeves run a minimum of $300 for the initial deposit. Please understand that we will not duplicate someone else's tattoo for you. Rather, we are interested in designing a custom piece for you that reflects your own individuality. Please be advised that there is a significant wait to get on the calendar. There is usually about a 6-month wait between the consultation time and the tattoo appointment. If you are in the process of getting a large piece, your appointments will be scheduled about once a month until the project is complete.

We are available by appointment only. The studio is a private atmosphere with limited space. Please come to your appointment alone, due to the space requirements. We have an extensive travel schedule, and we are especially difficult to reach in the summer months. If you have difficulty reaching us, please try again at a later date. We want to work with you. We may be out of town. If you require more immediate assistance, feel free to email us.

At E² Studios, we charge $150 per hour for all tattoos done on fresh skin.  Cover up tattoos or tattoos over scarring run $175 per hour.  

We charge a minimum of $150 for the first hour of work. Therefore, if you are planning a small tattoo, it is to your benefit to get it in addition to a larger piece. Please be advised that tattoos on certain areas of the body (hands, fingers, face, neck, and groin or genitalia area) will run a minimum of $150, due to the placement alone, regardless of the timeframe that they take to complete.

A government-issued identification card is required for all clients. Examples of this include a state-issued I.D. card, driver's license, or passport. This ID needs to be emailed to e2studioslv@gmail.com prior to your scheduled appointment. It is a requirement, so you will not be able to get work done if we do not receive the information in a timely fashion. If you are a minor, school I.D.s are NOT accepted, as they do not meet the identification guidelines set forth by the SNHD (Southern Nevada Health District).

We do not work on anyone under 16 years of age. If you are a minor between the ages of 16 and 18, you must provide a valid, government issued, photo I.D.  It is required that you are accompanied by your legal guardian, who must also provide a government-issued I.D. The last names on both I.D.s need to match, or else additional documentation (such as a birth certificate) is required to prove the relationship, as per the SNHD.

Please also be advised that according to the SNHD health guidelines, children under 14 year of age are not permitted in the shop. Please arrange for their childcare before your appointment.

If you are unable to make your scheduled appointment, please give us the courtesy of letting us know ASAP, or at least 48 hours ahead of time, if possible. We understand that occasional emergencies do come up; however, if you "no call/no show", your deposit will be forfeited along with any subsequent appointments in future months. In order to reschedule after a "no call/no show" occurs, you will have to leave a minimum deposit of $100 prior to being given new appointment dates. It's easy to avoid this by either sending a text or an email, as it is a common courtesy. Please just let us know in advance that you need to cancel. Thank you.

The best preparation for getting a new tattoo is to eat well before coming into the shop, drink plenty of water, and get as much sleep as possible the night before your appointment. Dress comfortably, wearing loose clothing that is well thought out, so that the area to be tattooed is readily accessible. Bring bottled water with you, along with a fully charged cell phone and headphones so that you can listen to your own music or play on your phone if you find the distraction beneficial. You may also want to bring hard candy if you feel that your blood sugar might drop during the session. Please do not take any aspirin or prescription drugs that you do not take regularly prior to your appointment. We don't want any unwanted or unnecessary side effects during your procedure.

 

We offer one free touch up within two years after the tattoo is originally done as a personal guarantee. However, please realize that we expect the proper aftercare recommendations to be followed while healing. We are able to tell if a touch up is required due to negligent aftercare, and if that is the case, you will be charged for that touch up.

Please understand that we are delaying any touch up until the COVID pandemic has subsided, which we hope will be by the end of 2021.

We always prefer cash, but we also accept Venmo and Zelle.

We do also accept Visa, Mastercard, Discover, and American Express, however, please be advised of the following: 

If you are planning to pay with any of these credit cards, please understand that we charge an additional 5% to cover the processing fees.

Or for the earlobes, the first piercing will run $40, and the second will run $20, for a total of $60 for the set.
