You have to be at least 18 years old to get a tattoo. However if you are below the age of 18, we can tattoo you with your parent’s consent, they have to be present while you are getting tattooed.

Do You Do Piercings?

Sorry, we do not provide piercing services.

Do You Do Temporary Or Henna Tattoos?

No, sorry we only do real ones.

Do You Do White Ink Tattoos?

Yes, however we do not guarantee the quality of white ink tattoos as they have the potential to turn yellow &/or cause the appearance of scarring upon healing.

Do You Do Cover-Ups & Touch-Ups

We will be happy to look at your existing tattoo and give advice on what can be done. Remember, though, that the darker and bolder the existing tattoo, the more difficult it is to cover up. Your new cover-up tattoo will be bigger than the original one. We may advise some tattoos to be lasered & lightened first for best results.

Touch-ups for tattoos done at INKVASION Tattoo Studio will be chargeable at $50 within 6 months. Touch-up for finger and feet tattoos will cost $50-$100.

Most tattoos do not require touch-ups, however every skin absorbs the ink and heals differently. Extremely fine line tattoos and light watercolor tattoos are more likely to require touch-up as compared to bolder tattoos. Certain placements such as, fingers, hands, feet, wrists, palms, ears, back of ear are more likely to fade during the first few weeks of healing and may need touch ups to stay. Each touch up is chargeable so do take note that some tattoos may be higher maintenance.

The touch-up fee will be FORFEITED if the touch-up appointment is cancelled, late for more than 15minutes or if you do not show up. You may reschedule only ONCE with at least 72 HOURS notice before the appointment date.

If you would like to rework/touch-up your tattoo done by another artist, please contact us for a friendly discussion.
