American Skin Graphics, Tattoos, Valparaiso, IN
Family-Friendly, Limited Services for Minors
Piercings Walk-in Services, Tattoo Services Walk-in Welcome, Appointments Suggested
We are excited that you are interested in having a new tattoo done by our #asginkcrew !!!!!
 You are welcome to book a free, no commitment, consultation with an artist in the studio 
by calling our staff, 7 days weekly, at 219-286-3257.

Our artists do not offer estimates by messenger, email, phone, text or social media. Pricing is done only with discussion of the 
design ideas/details & in the studio only, there are too many variables & factors that must be considered 
concerning any design, whether it is small, smallest, big or biggest.

Walk-in clients will always be welcome; however, time may be limited with any artist depending on the
 many variables at the time of the actual walk-in. Unless you are calling to book a consult, 
which is guaranteed up to 30-minutes with an artist to go over details, 
 the staff will not be able to tell you over the phone that there is guaranteed time for walk-in tattoo services, again, 
this can only be determined at the time you actually walk through our door.  

 It is always suggested that you call the studio desk to schedule an appointment to hammer out all the details of      the tattoo design, this way the artist can take notes, apply references, review placement, provide options & 
estimate/cost the concept for you. For extenuating circumstances, considerations may be applied 
by the discretion of the artist and/or staff. 

 After the consultation, the artists will apply the drawing or design process only with a deposit when booking 
out a tattoo service appointment. No drawings will be done & no tattoo service appointments will be made without a deposit. 
The deposit, usually minimum of $50 or up to half of the estimated total cost, usually covers some drawing time invested by the artist to develop the ideas discussed &/or is good faith to agreed terms, outlined in the binding form required to complete. You will have the opportunity to review the draft & discuss any changes or options with the artist. Usually, minor revisions can be done relatively quickly.  
Once approved, the tattoo service would proceed as planned, whether directly after consult or booked out, & the deposit amount to be applied toward the total cost. [For example: Tattoo is $120-Deposit $50=$60 Balance due the day of service]

The drawings can only be viewed in the studio, nothing will be sent via mail, email, messaging or otherwise, 
    due to liability reasons. Significant changes to the design or change in concept entirely may delay the tattoo service & may require         additional costs/fees. There is no commitment should you decide not to proceed with the tattoo after the design has been drafted, however there isn't a refund for the deposit, nor will you receive the drawing as the 
deposit becomes payment for the artist's time invested & not for the drawing. 
 The design itself, without the tattoo service, may still be available for purchase by the artist 
for cost/commissioned fee, however the deposit would not be applicable.

    Once you have looked at your schedule, 
call the studio to talk with our crew to find an available time to get in to talk with any 
of our talented artists about your ideas! 
Please contact us with anything further, we always look forward to hearing from you
