Frequently asked questions

HOW DO I BOOK AN APPOINTMENT FOR A TATTOO?

To book an appointment, please click the “BOOK AN APPOINTMENT” tab at the top of the page and follow the instructions to schedule your tatoo. I do NOT book tattoo appointments or answer tattoo questions via Phone, Twitter, Instagram, ect. All appointments are made through this site only! email consultations are free but a non-refundable deposit is required when making an appointment that will be applied towards the cost of your tattoo. If you need to cancel/reschedule, please email within 2 weeks of your appointment or there will be a fee per hour/loss of deposit. thank you

DO YOU TRAVEL TO DO TATTOOS?

Romeo is currently based in Los Angeles and does NOT do Tattoo Coneventions, periodically our artists do travel and tattoo in different cities. Please follow our social media for the quickest and easiest way to find out when an artist will be somewhere near you.

HOW DO I TAKE CARE OF MY TATTOO?

An aftercare sheet will be provided for you after your tattoo as well as verbal instructions by the artist.

CAN I COME TO THE SHOP AND SAY HI?

Although we do appreciate the love and support, it is unfair to our clients and other costumers in the shop to be interrupted during their service. Artists wont be able to stop in the middle of a tattoo to chat, with that in mind please refrain from visiting the tattoo shop to meet artists. Thank you!

WHAT IS YOUR HOURLY RATE/MINIMUM?

The hourly rate depends on different artists at the shop. Most artist at The California Dream charge around $200 / hour with a $150 shop minimum. While Romeo’s rate is currently around $500/h with a minimum of $400 for smaller tattoos that take less than an hour (no matter how small the tattoo is). We try to work with everyones budget, so don’t be intimidated by the hourly rate, its an estimate, We will give you a price range for your tattoo that will be stayed in. (If your budget is limited we will try and match you with an artist within your budget that fits your style)

HOW CAN I PAY?

Cash is preferred, but credit is doable if cash is not possible. There is a 10% transaction fee for all credit card sales (credit card fee + tax) #1

SHOULD I TIP?

Tips are always welcomed but never expected.

CAN I BRING FRIENDS WITH ME?

Although we do understand that getting a tattoo is an exciting and sometimes scary experience, We do ask that every client limits themselves to 1 guest if necessary. Please keep in mind that there are other artists working and other customers getting tattooed so it’s polite to keep the noise to a minimum, and not distract the artists.
