Info / FAQ

HOW DO I GO ABOUT GETTING TATTOOED?
You can get in touch with us via e-mail or using the contact form on the contact page. Send us some short information about your idea, placement and size. If you have a specific artist in mind you can add this in your mail, otherwise we will advise the right artist for your project. We will then put you in further contact with your artist.
You are most welcome to discuss your idea in person in the shop, but all artists work flexible hours and might not be in the shop at the moment you visit, so we advise to get in touch first.

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST TO GET TATTOOED?
This depends greatly on the artist, size, detail and placement of your tattoo. Once you have discussed your idea with your artist, they will quote an estimate on your project.

IS THERE A SHOP MINIMUM?
Yes, our minimum is €100, except for tattoos by our apprentice which start at €75.

HOW OLD DO I HAVE TO BE TO GET TATTOOED?
You must be 18 to get tattooed at Old Rules. We require a government issued photo ID.

DO I NEED AN APPOINTMENT TO GET A TATTOO?
Yes, unless we have specific walk-in days.

DO I NEED TO PAY A DEPOSIT FOR A TATTOO?
Yes, we require a deposit on all tattoo appointments. Deposits are non-refundable and if you need to cancel your appointment, please do so 48h in advance by calling the shop or contacting your artist, otherwise your deposit will be lost.

HOW DO I TAKE CARE OF MY TATTOO?
We give you all the information needed after your tattoo appointment. If you would like to know how to do this beforehand drop us a line at info@oldrules.be and we’ll get back to you with all the necessary information.
We advise and sell Hustle Butter for the aftercare of your tattoo. It's an all natural, vegan and cruelty free ointment.

CAN I BRING A FRIEND?
We usually only allow the person that will be tattooed into the tattooing area of the shop. Our artists choose to work in a comfortable and private environment. If however you really need someone there with you we allow maximum 1 person along as long as you ask your artist beforehand and assure that this person will conduct themselves in a respectable manner. We reserve the right to refuse anyone into our tattooing stations.

ARE CHILDREN ALLOWED TO COME ALONG?
No, please leave your children at home when you have your appointment. A tattoo shop is not a place for kids and they are distracting to our artists.

WHAT DO I NEED TO DO BEFORE GETTING TATTOOED?
Get a good nights sleep and have a full meal before your procedure.

OTHER THINGS I SHOULD KNOW?
Arrive on time for your appointment, be respectable, listen to your artist's advice and don’t drink or do drugs before your procedure. We accept cash only.
