Booking Policy

Please download, read, and sign this agreement before attending your appointment. We have included our policies below for your convenience, but you’ll still be required to fill out this form.

Deposit Agreement

All tattoo appointments require a security deposit which will go towards the cost of the tattoo upon completion. If your tattoo requires multiple sessions, the deposit will be held aside until the final session.


In order to cancel/reschedule your appointment, your artist requires a minimum of 7 days notice. This means that your deposit is fully refundable, or transferable to your new appointment. In the case that you do not give enough notice, a percentage of the deposit will be forfeited.

Cancelling or rescheduling within:

  • 24 hours of appointment = forfeit 100% of deposit
  • 3 days of appointment = forfeit 50% of deposit

Once tattooing has commenced, the deposit is strictly non-refundable. If your deposit is forfeited, and you want to continue working with your artist, you will be required to pay another deposit

Design Fee:

Where applicable, the artist may charge a separate design fee, or they may include it in the deposit amount. If the artist has not started work on your design at the time of cancellation, the design fee will be refunded.

However, if the artist has completed/started the design at the time of cancellation, the design fee is non-refundable.

Travelling Clients:

Neither the artist nor the studio will be held responsible or financially liable for any travel expenses, or other costs incurred in case of a cancellation by a client or artist.

Any extenuating circumstances or discrepancies will be handled privately, professionally and personally. The rules of the agreement are concrete, but we welcome you to speak with your artist should any issues arise.

Please fill and sign the linked agreement at the top of the page.

No Phone Policy

Ever since Abstruse Tattoo Studio opened its doors more than 5 years ago, we always had the policy of “No studio phone”. And as of late, more people have been asking after a number.

The reason we don’t have one is because we strive to give the client the best possible experience and the most out of their session. We have no desk/door bitch who handles everything. So if we had a phone, the artists would be constantly interrupted. How much would that suck if it was your turn to get tattooed and the artist kept on starting and stopping?

We pride ourselves on our work and the fact we are an appointment only studio. So if you have a tattoo idea, we would love to hear about it through email or social media. And we’ll get back to you as humanly possible.

We truely love you guys. And remember all of the artists look after their own bookings. So if you want to get in contact with one of them, just shoot the studio a message and we’ll happily give you their email
