  • How long should I expect to be at the shop?
    Its almost impossible to guess this, every tattoo and every body are so vastly different. When you book your appointment your artist will give you a rough guess of how long they think your tattoo will take. We suggest not having any hard plans after your tattoo because the time you leave can vary drastically. You can take as many breaks as you need, we prioritize your comfort and safety, and we'll work with you to make sure that your tattoo experience is as positive as possible.
  • When will I see my tattoo design?
    We understand that getting a tattoo is a big decision, and we want to ensure that you are completely satisfied with the design before we begin the tattooing process. We strongly suggest looking through artist portfolios and making sure your ideas align with the artist style. We do schedule enough time in each tattoo appointment to allot for small changes in the design. If you are making a big change in your design please let us know at minimum 48 hours before your appointment. Large changes in the design will effect the artist day and your appointment day/time might need to be moved. If you show up to your appointment with large changes you will absolutely be rescheduled. If you have any questions about the design process or would like to schedule a consultation, please don't hesitate to reach out to us. We look forward to working with you to create a one-of-a-kind tattoo that you will cherish for years to come.

  • How do I prepare for my tattoo appointment?
    We want to make sure you have the best tattoo experience possible, so it’s important to come prepared. Here are a few tips to help you get ready for your appointment: 1. Get a good night’s sleep: A well-rested body and mind can help you better handle any discomfort during the tattooing process. 2. Stay hydrated: Drinking plenty of water before your appointment can help keep your skin hydrated, making it easier for the ink to penetrate the skin. 3. Dress appropriately: Wear comfortable, loose-fitting clothing that allows easy access to the area you want tattooed. 4. Eat beforehand: Make sure to eat a good meal before your appointment to help maintain your energy levels. 5. Avoid alcohol and drugs: Alcohol and drugs can thin your blood and make it harder for your body to heal, so it’s best to avoid them before your appointment. By following these tips, you can help ensure a successful and comfortable tattoo experience. If you have any further questions or concerns, don’t hesitate to reach out to us

  • Can minors get tattoos with parental consent?
    While we understand that some parents may be willing to give their consent for their underage children to get tattoos, we are not able to tattoo anyone under the age of 18, even with parental consent. There are several reasons for this policy. First and foremost, tattooing is a permanent procedure that requires careful consideration and a mature decision-making process. We believe that individuals under the age of 18 may not be fully capable of making such a decision. Our goal is to provide a safe and comfortable environment for our clients, and we believe that this policy is in the best interest of everyone involved. If you have any questions or concerns about our policy regarding tattooing minors, please don't hesitate to contact us.
  • Can I use numbing cream?
    Yes, we allow the use of numbing cream for our clients. However, we recommend discussing this option with your tattoo artist prior to your appointment to ensure that it is safe and effective for your specific tattoo. It is important to note that numbing cream can affect the quality of your tattoo, so it is important to follow our instructions and use the cream only as directed. Additionally, we do not provide or sell numbing cream in our shop, so you will need to purchase it on your own ahead of time. If you have any questions on where to purchase numbing cream, or the creams we recommend please don't hesitate to reach out to us.
  • Can I bring a friend?
    Absolutely! We understand that getting a tattoo can be a nerve-wracking experience and having a friend with you can help ease your nerves. However, we ask that you limit the number of guests you bring with you to one person. We want to make sure our studio remains a peaceful and professional environment for our clients and our artists. Additionally, please make sure your friend is respectful of our policies and follows any instructions given by our staff during the appointment.
  • Do you use vegan products?
    Yes, at Black Amethyst Akron, we are committed to using only vegan products for all of our tattooing services. We understand that many of our clients have ethical and environmental concerns and we strive to accommodate those needs. Our tattoo ink, aftercare products, and all other supplies are completely vegan and cruelty-free.
