We are pleased to announce we are now able to accept Apple Pay, Google Wallet, and Samsung Pay.
Ink4Autism is an international movement where a portion of the cost of autism-themed tattoos is donated to a local charity of the shop's choice.
INTRODUCING... OUR NEXT BIG EVENT!! \m/
This is a great cause we've been wanting to participate with since we first heard about it a few years ago. Well, we've decided 2016 will be the year!! :D We are proud to announce that this year (finally) we will be participating in the worldwide #ink4autism movement! The final donation we give will be given to a LOCAL charitable organization of our choosing, so if anyone affected by this cause has any recommendations please shoot us over an email with "autism donation suggestion" in the subject line so we can review the local supports and see which local organization could use a little bonus. :) ( firstname.lastname@example.org )
HOW IT WORKS:
Come get an autism-themed OR PUZZLE incorporated tattoo during the month of April, and a portion of the final proceeds will be donated locally.
These will be done in the same manner and with the same restrictions as other tattoo services we provide, so any & all of our regular design and placement restrictions will still apply. These tattoos will not qualify toward your After Forever Badass Card, and cannot be combined with any other deals, promotions, or gift certificates. To avoid interruption of regular business there will also be no rain checks for this event; April only!
HOW TO BOOK:
Bring your ideas in for a consultation, and if you're ready at that point to have a drawing done up we will take a deposit toward your tattoo. Smaller designs can usually just be drawn up on the spot if time allows. Deposits are non-refundable. Once your drawing is done you'll be called in to come approve the design, and once the design is approved we will book you in! Consultations are done in person, and not over the phone or internet. If you're coming from out of town for your consultation you're welcome to call ahead so we have a heads up if you'd like, but any time during business hours is usually fine. Normally we don't book further than 1 week ahead, but if we happen to be filling up we will extend hours and bookings to accommodate if need be (as always). Any booking cancellations require 48 hours notice, or your deposit will be forfeited.
General Info about Ink4Autism, taken from their website:
April is National Autism Awareness Month where we celebrate those in our lives that have autism by permanently showing our support by getting an autism themed tattoo.
Participating tattoo shops donate a portion of the tattoo cost to a local charity that provides autism services. Also, Ink4Autism does not receive any of the funds, rather they are donated to the local autism charity of their choosing. To date, participating shops have raised over $80,000 worldwide.
Last year over 275 tattoo shops participated, and have inked over 800 autism themed tattoos. We have shops participating in Canada, the US, Australia, the United Kingdom, Romania, Norway, South Africa, Germany, Hungary, Sweden and Israel and we hope to do even better. We have been profiled in the March 2013 issue of Skin & Ink Magazine and the April 2013 issue of Inked Magazine.
