Tattoo Booking Info

Thank You!


We’ll start off by saying thank you for booking with us at Fox & Moon! 

If your booking is for cosmetic tattooing, please click this link for more information.

We require that you read this booking information so you know what to expect on the day of your tattoo.

You will sign a consent form at your booking and provide photographic ID. Signing this form assumes you have read and agree to this booking information and have followed instructions clearly and had opportunity to ask any and all questions. 

We cannot legally tattoo you, regardless of your age, without providing original photographic ID. NO EXCEPTIONS. If you arrive at your appointment with no photographic ID your deposit will not be refunded and your booking will be cancelled.

We accept valid original 18+ cards, your drivers licence or passport.

If you forget your ID we will not except a digital photograph/photocopy.

Your appointment will be rescheduled and you will forfeit your deposit if you do not provide your ID. 

 

Before Your Tattoo


Your artist will endeavour to get your drawing/sketch for your tattoo no more than 48 hours before your booking due to the high volume of drawings each artist needs to complete for  a large client base, if you would like your drawing sooner please let us know as our artists are very busy and prioritising your drawing before another client will require a small drawing fee.

  • An email reminder 2 days before your booking will be sent to you, if you need to reschedule or cancel please let us know when you get your reminder, this will be your last chance to change or cancel your booking, any bookings cancelled 48 hours before your appointment will result in loss of any deposit (legitimate emergencies will be honoured).

  • As we are moving into flu season please let us know as soon as any flu symptoms present and we can reschedule your appointment before our 48 hour cancellation policy applies. We reserve the right to reschedule your appointment if you arrive with flulike symptoms as being unwell can dramatically affect the healing process and could potentially affect the health and well-being of our artists and staff. 
  • Any minor changes to your design can be made before the booking but any major changes with short notice may require rescheduling your booking depending on your artists schedule for the day.

  • Please arrive 10 mins earlier than your booking so you have time to fill out our consent form, ask any questions if you need to and our artists can keep on schedule with other bookings they may have that day.

  • You can bring one friend only with you and they must be 18 years and older to be allowed in the tattoo area. Children are not permitted to be in the tattoo area and we reserve the right to reschedule your booking and you will forfeit your deposit if you do not have the appropriate supervision for your child.

  • Make sure you bring photographic ID, We cannot tattoo you if you do not have ID and will forfeit your deposit and have to reschedule your booking.

  • Do not consume any drugs or alcohol 24 hours before your booking. This can affect the tattoo process, resulting in excessive bleeding and make the tattoo much more painful. Your tattoo artist may not be able to continue the tattoo and may have to reschedule your appointment.

  • Make sure you have eaten within 3 hours before your appointment, that you  are hydrated and well rested. Low blood sugar from not eating and dehydration can cause lightheadedness while you are being tattooed. We offer free cold filtered alkaline water.

  • Ensure you are one hundred percent happy with your tattoo design and placement of your tattoo, Your artist can move the stencil before the tattoo is started but not after. We will not be held responsible if you change your mind during or after your tattoo.

 

During Your Tattoo


Once you are happy with the placement of the stencil and design, your artist will begin the tattoo process.

  • Prepare yourself mentally and stay hydrated, tattoos can hurt so you want to ensure you can sit through it.

  • If you are struggling with pain let your artist know, they will do their best to make you as comfortable as possible.

  • With the integrity of your new tattoo in mind, please make sure that you are consciously sitting as still as possible while your artist is working. Although we do allow one (only one) person to accompany you during the tattoo, be aware that they can be a distraction both to you and your artist and that at the end of the day the most important part your appointment is getting the best tattoo possible.

  • If you need a break, to get up and stretch or go to the toilet please let your artist know.

  • When your tattoo is finished, your artist will wipe the tattoo over and apply film over the tattoo to protect it.

  • Your artist will usually take a photo of the tattoo which they (your artist) and we (Fox & Moon) may use for social media promotion. If you do not wish for us to use your tattoo in our marketing please advise us while you fill out your consent form.
