What is the minimum price for a tattoo?

The shop minimum is $150. Everything starts there and goes up depending on size, style, location and detail.


i'm 17 years old, can i get a tattoo with my parents consent?

No. It is against the law to tattoo anybody under the age of 18 years in Victoria. Current photo identification will be required.


Do you need to make an appointment to get tattooed?

We work by appointment but gladly accept walk-ins if our schedule allows. If you don’t have an appointment we do recommend calling ahead to check availability. If you are seeking larger work, we always start with an initial consultation prior to the date of the tattoo in order to fully establish design requirements, location, restrictions etc.


How do I make an appointment?

Appointments for custom tattoos are made after the initial consultation where we take a $100 non-refundable cash deposit.  For interstate or overseas customers please contact the store on (03)96022555 or melbournetattoocompany@gmail.com and we can arrange an appointment time and provide details on how to pay via our website. 


If I cancel my appointment or change my mind, can I get my deposit back? 

No. deposits are non-refundable. If you can’t make your appointment we require at least 48 hours notice by phone or in person, or you will forfeit the deposit. If you don’t show up for your appointment, you forfeit the deposit. If you cancel with more than 48 hours notice, we can roll the deposit over to a new appointment time. Please give us as much notice as possible if you need to cancel. Please note that we do not accept cancellations by Facebook, email, or via messages left on our service outside of hours.


Will you tattoo my hands and my neck?

As a general rule, we won’t tattoo your hands or neck unless you are VERY heavily tattooed already. We respect your right to have any part of your body tattooed with whatever you want tattooed, and ask that you respect our right to choose what we tattoo and where.


will you tattoo the inside of my finger?

No. We aim to only do tattoos that will hold up well over time. Some areas of the body like the inside of fingers, the bottom of feet and the inside of your lip simply won’t allow that, and for that reason we choose not to tattoo them.


Does it hurt?

Yes, although some parts of the body will be more painful than others. First timers often find the experience less painful than they expected.
