How much does a tattoo cost?

We have a $200 hourly rate for multi-session pieces (back pieces, sleeves, etc.). Smaller one-session tattoos, we can quote a price. It’s hard for us to quote the price of a tattoo by phone, but we’re more than happy to do so by email. Shoot us an email and let us know what you’re thinking about getting done! Of course, you can always just come by shop as well.

What happens at the consultation?

Client and artist will discuss the tattoo. The client should bring any pictures or reference material with them and have a clear idea of what they want.

How do I make an appointment?

Call, email, or stop by the shop to set up a consultation with an artist. After the consultation, you and the artist can set a tattoo appointment for a date that works best for you both.

Do you do Cover-ups?

Yes, we fix bad tattoos.

Do you take Walk-ins?

Yes, we usually have time for walk-ins each day that we are open. We operate on a first come first serve basis. Shop Hours: 11-ish to 7-ish, 7 days a week.

Do the artists have portfolios that I can see?

Yes! Feel free to look through all of the Electric Cobra artist’s portfolios online or in the shop. We need a clear idea of what you want so we can give you the best tattoo possible. Or just pick something off the wall from our large selection of flash.

How long does a tattoo take to heal?

In about 2 – 3 weeks, however, everyone will have different healing experiences. If you have any questions or concerns please call the shop; we are more than happy to answer your questions. Please also refer to our after-care instructions.
