Can I bring a friend with me?

Answered by: Alley Cat Joe

Of course! We want you to be as comfortable as possible and if that means bringing a friend, by all means, bring them with. Even though state law prohibits friends from being in the tattoo booth with you, at our shop the lounge wraps around the tattoo area which means your friends can be just on the other side of the glass as you're being tattooed.

Do I need an appointment or can I walk in?

Answered by: Alley Cat Joe

It really all depends on your tattoo needs. We have several great artists who have different preferred styles depending on which artist is best for you, you may need to set up an appointment. However, walk-ins are still always welcome.

Do I need to have a design picked out and drawn up?

Answered by: Alley Cat Joe

Of course not, our artists specialize in several different styles. Our receptionist will meet with you and figure out which artist is best for you and then set you a consultation with that artist so you can work out a plan together.

Do I have to stick with the same artist for all my tattoos?

Answered by: Alley Cat Joe

Absolutely not! One of the things that sets our shop apart is we are a big family, some of us are stronger in areas than others. At the end of the day, our main priority is getting you the best tattoo possible so depending on the style and subject matter we will recommend the artist that's best for the piece you were wanting. If you feel comfortable with an artist however you are more than welcome to stick with them for all your pieces as most of our artists are very well-rounded.

No, unfortunately, standard gift certificates cannot be gifted or so they must be used by the person they were purchased for. However, any gift certificates that are won during a contest can be gifted one time.

Can I sign for my underage child to get tattooed?

Answered by: Alley Cat Joe

No. Unfortunately in the state of North Carolina tattooing a minor is illegal and considered a sexual offense. You must be 18 or older to get tattooed no exceptions.
