  • How Do I Make An Appointment At Sandbridge Tattoo?

    Great question. Simply come into the shop, bring a cash/card deposit that will go toward your tattoo, and bring any reference material or ideas ready for our artists.

    The first step is to get a consultation. You simply fill out our consultation form CLICK HERE and we will be in touch in the next 48 hours to discuss your appointment further.


    Next, once you've been contacted by a member of our Sandbridge Tattoo Front Staff, they'll direct you to making a deposit (either in person or online). All deposits ($150-$310 depending on the artist) go toward the last session of the tattoo. To make a deposit online, CLICK HERE. A 48 hour cancellation notice via phone call is needed to keep your deposit and reschedule an appointment. To respect our artists time and appointment schedule, any no shows or late cancellations will lose their deposit. For our full Deposit Policy, CLICK HERE

    If you live out of the area and want to schedule an appointment, please fill out our consultation form (mentioned above) and we will get back to you in 48 hours.

  • What Payment options are accepted?

    While cash is always preferred, at Sandbridge Tattoo we also accept Visa, Mastercard, and Debit Cards for the payment of your tattoo and deposit. Please remember that our artists have spent years at their craft and as you complete your experience, letting them know through a tip is an excellent way to show your appreciation for making your tattoo idea come to life. 

  • What If Someone Isn't 18? Can THey Get Tattooed?

    The short answer is no. 

    The longer answer is that getting a tattoo is an adult, permanent decision. This isn't something to take lightly and shouldn't be something you get at 16 or 17 even with a parent's consent. If you like it at 16 or 17, then just wait until you're 18 and we'd love to bring your tattoo idea to life. But many of the things we liked at 16-17 we cannot stand now, so better to wait and not get a tattoo you will forever regret.

  • Can I bring My Child In For My Tattoo? 

    If you're coming in to ask a question or say hi, by all means the front lobby is waiting for you and if you have your child with you, we understand. That being said, we do not allow children to stay while you're getting tattooed. Please find suitable childcare during your appointment and allow the other clients to get their tattoo in a calm, adult, kid-free atmosphere. Thank you for understanding.
