FAQs

Where are you located?

83 Brunswick Street, Fortitude Valley. We are only 450m from the Fortitude Valley Train Station and the Brunswick Street at Water Street Bus Stop 6 is right outside the shop door.  There is also metered street parking just around the corner on Water and Warry Streets.

How much do you charge?

It really depends on the time required to complete the tattoo, the size, style, placement and detail involved.

The minimum price is $100.

Do I need an appointment?

We work by appointment but walk-ins are more than welcome, consider calling ahead to check we can fit you first.

How do I book in?

Either call us on 3854 1735, email us at traditiontattoo@outlook.com or stop by the shop to check availability and pay a deposit. Larger tattoos require a consultation with the artist prior to making an appointment and a deposit to secure the appointment.

How can I pay the deposit?

We accept cash, EFTPOS, credit card in person or over the phone and Paypal deposits.

If I cancel my appointment can I get my deposit back?

Deposits are non-refundable. We need at least 48 hours notice to cancel an appointment or you will forfeit the deposit. Your deposit will be taken off the total cost of the tattoo.

How old do I have to be to get a tattoo?

You must be at least 18 years of age. Valid ID (license, passport etc) is required to get tattooed.

How do I look after my tattoo?

Leave the bandage on for a minimum of 2 hours. In a clean environment, remove the bandage and wash the tattoo well with plain soap and water. Gently pat the area dry with a clean towel and allow to air for approximately 1 hour before applying cream. Massage a small amount of the suggested cream into the tattoo, use sparingly. Repeat this routine twice daily.

  • Do not re-cover or re-bandage the tattoo.
  • Keep the area clean and free from dirt and lint.
  • Do not soak the tattoo until healed (no swimming, no saunas, no baths, no surfing etc)
  • Do not pick, scratch or irritate the flaking skin
  • Pat the area gently to relieve any sensation of itchiness

Allow 7-14 days for your tattoo to heal (please note that healing time will vary between clients). Once healed, we recommend that you use an SPF30+ sunscreen to help prevent fading and ageing of your tattoo.
