At Miller Ink Tattoo Studio, to make an appointment with an artist, we require an $50.00 non-refundable deposit. The deposit reserves the time with an Artist and is applied to the cost of your tattoo if one sitting and on the final appointment if multiple sittings are required. It holds your appointment time. Deposits are non-refundable and non-transferable.
Before Your Appointment
Make sure you eat a good meal before your appointment, bring snacks or drinks you need. Wear non-restrictive clothing that is comfortable for you and that gives the Artist access to the to the area being tattooed.
Bring your ID every time. It's a Michigan state requirement, even if you haven't been to the shop before.
Our space is small and we all have big personalities. We welcome and love your friends to come for moral support, if needed. We prefer you limit it to one or two people.
Designing the tattoo is a collaborate process. The Artist will spend considerable time with you to create the design. As your Artist designs your tattoo, your approval is required for each step through completion.
What if you don't like the drawing?
This is very, very rare as each stage of the design process required your approval from the beginning through completion.
Changing/Resizing the Design
If the artist draws a design for you that was agreed upon during the consultation and you decide to completely change the design of the tattoo, an additional $25.00 Drawing Fee is required to draw a different design. If additional charges are required for the new tattoo because of the design and size, the Artist will inform you of the cost before any action is taken on the new design.
In the event that you need to reschedule, you must contact the Artist within 48 hours of your scheduled appointment by phone or email to reschedule. Your appointment will be rescheduled to an agreed time between you and the Artist. Your deposit will move with your rescheduled appointment. An appoint can be rescheduled up to two times before it is forfeited.
If you missed your appointment and you didn't reschedule, then you forfeit your deposit. A new $80.00 non-refundable deposit is required to schedule a new appointment.
Cancellations automatically forfeit the $80.00 non-refundable deposit with no exceptions.
If you cancel your appointment on the day of your appointment, it is considered an automatic cancellation and you automatically forfeit the $80.00 non-refundable deposit with no exceptions.
No Show Appointments
If you don't show up for your scheduled appointment, it is considered an automatic cancellation and you automatically forfeit the $80.00 non-refundable deposit with no exceptions.
We give you a 15-minute grace time to arrive on time for your scheduled appointment. If on the 16th minute, and you have not arrived, it is considered an automatic cancellation and you automatically forfeit the $80.00 non-refundable deposit with no exceptions.
As a courtesy, PLEASE call the Artist if you are going to be late and to let us know you are on your way.
Under Michigan law, we can't tattoo you as we need your full and sober consent. Please do not show up intoxicated.
We love children, but a tattoo studio is not a child-friendly environment. We can't have unattended children running free in the Studio because you will not be to attend to them while you're getting the tattoo.
If You Are Sick
We keep a very clean Studio and need to be attentive to germs and infection risk. If you are sick in any way please call us to cancel your appointment and we will discuss the deposit at that time. You can read all about getting tattooed when you're sick by reading on our blog post about it here.
