**PLEASE NOTE: If you are deemed unfit by our staff to be present in the studio for any length of time due to lack of personal hygiene, you will be asked to reschedule at your own cost and deposit becomes Void.
We thank you for your adherence to our shop rules! Your understanding of our policies only enables us to serve you better.
We reserve the right to deny service to anyone based on no show, inappropriate behaviour or any individual circumstance the staff feels is unacceptable. WE HAVE A ZERO TOLERANCE POLICY RELATING TO THREATS, VIOLENCE OR ABUSE OF OUR STAFF.
A Deposit is required to book your tattoo appointment.
This ensures your artist can commit the necessary time solely for your tattoo design. The minimum deposit required is $50 which comes off your tattoo total the day of your appointment. A greater amount is required upfront on large scale pieces; sleeve work, back pieces and hourly commissioned work.
If circumstances outside of the shop's control occur the day of appointment that prevents the client from having services rendered (namely abuse of staff, when children are brought to appointment, poor client hygiene, illness etc.) or where designs have been drafted and confirmed and last minute change occurs; results in deposit being retained by the shop and new deposit required to re-book.
Deposits are non-refundable.
We require 72 hours notice of inability to make your appointment.
Failure to provide adequate notice may result in our staff discontinuing working relationship with our studio going forward.
New deposit is required to re-book should you become unable to attend your appointment. These policies are in place to ensure quality work is provided to our clients with mutual respect of artist and client time and efforts.
It becomes extremely difficult to fill appointment dates when last minute cancellation or no show occurs, causing scheduling chaos and instability for the artist. Policy is in place to ensure the client has committed to their appointment date and has made appropriate arrangements with their work, childcare etc.
** Appointments that cannot be satisfied due to abusive behaviour by client are billable for service hours scheduled and can be enforced via Collections.
In the event circumstance has rendered deposit void and No Tattoo services have been provided; the design/ artwork/ other elements created by our staff for the purpose of your tattoo, become property of Flesh Tattoos. In entirety, as intellectual and tangible property of the artist. Not to be used by another artist for purpose of Tattooing.
We guarantee our work!
You have the opportunity to get one free touch up within 3 months from the date of your tattoo, provided you applied appropriate aftercare as directed by your artist.
You are healed enough to receive re-touching after 3 weeks post tattoo application.
The client is responsible for booking their touch-up in a timely manner. Our artists do get booked up quickly and it is up to the client to ensure their touch-up is booked with enough time to plan ahead. Flesh Tattoos will not be held responsible in circumstances where we are too booked up to accommodate a touch-up appointment due to poor planning on clients end or where client has forgotten and the 3 month time period has past.
Damage to the tattoo due to negligence, vacations, swimming, picking etc is evident to your artist and will result in touch ups being done at the clients own cost.
PLEASE NOTE: We do not book touch-up appointments for Saturdays.
** Hand & Finger Tattoos are not guaranteed due to unpredictable healed outcomes. All retouching needed for hand & finger tattoos is done at the clients own cost.
All tattoo Gift Certificates are valid for one year from the date of purchase. Once the one year expiry date passes, the tattoo amount purchased is void and retained by Flesh Tattoos.
It is the clients responsibility to be in touch to schedule tattoo appointment and give enough notice as we have a wait time for appointments. Flesh Tattoos will not be held responsible if we are too booked up and busy with existing bookings to be able to accommodate tattoo appointment where client has left booking too last minute causing certificate to expire.
**Please Note: if you have a specific artist you would like to purchase for, you must make that known at the time of purchase. Otherwise your artist for appointment will be whomever filled out and authorized certificate at the time of purchase.
** No deposit can be taken on pre-paid gift certificate tattoo appointments to reserve spot as is our traditional policy. As such, the date scheduled for appointment cannot be changed, cancelled or rescheduled. To do so results in all, or a portion of value (for larger amounts) becoming VOID and being retained by the studio. Please keep this in mind when booking your appointment to ensure you are available for the date/time scheduled.
Policy Update Marijuana Legalization
Marijuana is now legal in Canada for recreational use and we have updated our studio policy accordingly to reflect our service requirements. Please note, on our waiver clients are to agree that they are free from use of Drugs or Alcohol. Our staff has the right to refuse service to anyone we believe to be under the influence. Our studio is smoke free (including cigarettes). And those who wish to use Marijuana outside, will be asked to step away from our doors so as to not have the smoke affect our inner premises. While minors are not permitted on-site for Tattooing services; we do occasionally have young ones attend for piercing. Please be respectful of our policies and artists to ensure you receive a smooth and effective experience. This policy is in place to ensure the health and safety of our clients and staff.
We have validated this policy is legal and enforceable with our York Region Public Health regulatory body.
We Do Not Tattoo Minors
YOU MUST BE AT LEAST 18 YEARS OLD TO BE TATTOOED.
Canadian contract law dictates one of the 6 elements to create a legally binding contract is capacity. By law a minor (under the age of 18 for Ontario) cannot legally enter into a binding and enforceable contract as a minor. For the purpose of tattooing whereby a consent waiver (contract) must be signed prior to receiving tattoo services, a minor (person under the age of 18) cannot legally provide consent with acceptance and full capacity to the extent that it be legally binding. As such tattoo services cannot be legally rendered. A minor as dictated under the Age of Majority and Accountability Act, R.S.O. 1990, c. A.7
** We do NOT accept parental signature to consent for Minor to be tattooed.
All clients MUST be 18+ with government issued I.D. This is a no contest, without exception policy.
Please Note: FLESH TATTOOS IS NOT A NUT FREE FACILITY!
Occasionally our artists come in contact with nut food products by way of consumption. There is no risk of cross contamination on-site but for those with severe allergy where smell can trigger reaction; being in close proximity to an artist for the purpose of receiving tattoo services could pose potential risk to the client.
PLEASE ADVISE YOUR ARTIST AHEAD OF TIME TO ANY ALLERGIES, FOOD BASED OR OTHER!!
