Info / FAQ

HOW DO I GO ABOUT GETTING TATTOOED?
You can get in touch directly with Karan or Ben to discuss your project. If you would like to book with one of our guest artists, you can get in touch with them directly or send us an e-mail with your idea, size and placement and we’ll put you in contact with your artist.
We work by appointment only, also for information. So please make an appointment before coming to the shop for info, because not all artists are in the shop at all times.

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.

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 a last minute cancellation. We always post last minute openings on our Facebook page.

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 one week 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. In short it’s necessary to keep your tattoo clean, and make sure it has no contact with water or sunlight for a few weeks. We recommend 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 in advance 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.
