FAQ

How do I book an appointment?

*Under the tattoo appointments page you will find an inquiry form to fill out. Once sent, your inquiry will be answered by Nico, Johnny's assistant. If your tattoo is selected, you will be booked an in person consult or directly to a tattoo appointment. If your coming from out of town and need a consult, a zoom call can be arranged. 

are deposits required?

*Absolutely. All tattoo appointments will require $100 non-refundable deposit to secure an appointment. All deposits go toward the final price of your tattoo. For large scale pieces requiring more than one appointment, your deposit will go towards your final sitting. 

How much do your charge?

*We do not give any quotes over email or phone as there are many factors determining the price of a tattoo. I will say I do not charge hourly. I break down my larger projects into daily flat rates. We are all about taking our time to make sure your tattoo is done to the best of our ability.

how far out are you booked?

*On average it will take between 3-5 months to get started on a new piece. Consults are scheduled and booked based on the inquiry fitting certain creative and artistic criteria. 
 

Do you have a wait/cancellation list?

*I do not. 


I've sent an inquiry and haven't heard back?


*We try our best to respond to every email. please give Nico or myself 5-7 days to respond. Unfortunately not every tattoo will be selected. With wanting to focus on certain styles and techniques of tattooing, certain pieces will be selected over others. Please don't take any offense, if your inquiry does not fit our criteria we try our best to refer you to someone better suited. Or you no called no showed one to many times ;)



is the collective 716 a tattoo studio or art gallery?

*Both! When the studio space was shared between Ted Hawkins and Johnny it was primarily tattoo studio. When Ted moved back to California, Johnny converted the space to his own personal gallery and tattoo lounge. The space will be hosting exhibition events, public gallery hours and a number of local events spotlighting different artists. 



What are your hours?

*All tattoos are by appointment only. No walk-ins.
