Consultations are free of charge, and take place at 9:30am Monday – Friday. If you would like to book a consult to discuss any ideas (new or old) please phone the studio on 07 854 9616.


A deposit of $50 per hour booked is required to reserve any appointment made. We would prefer this to be paid in person, though in special circumstances we can arrange an online payment. Do remember that all deposits must be paid in full at time of booking.

If you have arranged to make a deposit online, please include the following information: First name, initial of surname, booking date and artist. In addition you will need to inform us once any payment has been made. (Note bookings are not confirmed until payment has been received).

Your deposit will come off the final transaction on completion of your tattoo. For on-going work your deposit will be rolled over to your next booking, rather than making an additional deposit payment with each booking.

Deposits are there to protect the artists from no-shows and last minute cancellations. All deposits are non-refundable should you choose to cancel. If you wish to reschedule please allow 7 days notice, failure to do so (or more than 3 reschedules) will result in the loss of your deposit.


For small one off pieces a rough estimation of cost will be given at time of booking. For larger pieces we work on an hourly rate of $150. Large pieces are best booked in for a half day session (3 hours) or a full day session (6 hours) and are priced accordingly. Please note currently we are set up to accept CASH ONLY, no eftpos, credit cards, etc.


Initial design work is free of charge, with a design ready to view on the day of your appointment. To make the design process as straightforward as possible for both parties we ask that clients provide us with as much information as possible at time of booking, including: size, location, and any reference images you may have. Each of us here at Skinks Tattoo Studio has their own unique style and specialty and as such any reference supplied will be re-interpreted by your chosen artist.


  • Be on time for your appointment
  • It’s best if you’ve had a good nights rest.
  • Eat something substantial before getting tattooed.
  • Don’t drink for 24 hours before or after your appointment.
  • If you have dry skin in the area we are tattooing it may be worth moisturizing a few days prior to your booking.

If you have any additional questions please feel free to phone the studio on 07 854 9616 or better yet swing by for a chat.

Kind regards

The Skinks Team
