FAQs

Do I need an appointment?

For tattoos, appointments are generally preferred, but we will take walk-ins when the scheduling allows so or we have a cancellation. A non-refundable deposit (unless 48 hour notice is given for cancellations or reschedule) is required for all tattoo appointments. This deposit secures your time and is deducted from the final cost of the tattoo. We take piercings on a walk-in basis, from 1 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., 7 days a week.

How much will my tattoo cost me?

Our shop minimum is $80. For tattoos that can be finished in a sitting, an artist will provide you with a flat rate quote. Larger pieces requiring multiple sessions go at a rate of $120-150 per hour on average, depending on artist. Because of the different variables that go into how much a tattoo will cost (size, placement, etc.), any quote given by somebody other than the artist that will be doing your tattoo is not firm and is only meant as a general idea of what the tattoo will cost.

How much are piercings?

This can vary so much depending on which piercing it is, what style of jewelry is used, and what options are chosen. All piercing prices that are quoted include implant grade titanium jewelry, piercing and aftercare. Because of the huge selection of different options we have for any given piercing, it usually best to give us a call and discuss with a piercer what it is you’re wanting and looking for.

Why do the piercings cost more here than other places?

We value our customers and their health and safety more than anything else, so using absolutely nothing but the best quality available makes sense. All piercings are performed here at Dandyland are done by professionally trained piercers with years of knowledge under their belts that will fit your jewelry for your new piercing appropriately. Jewelry that is used for initial piercings is internally threaded titanium or gold that meets ASTM standards for implantation (this means the jewelry is actually designated to be used in the body) or it meets the Association of Professional Piercers guidelines for initial jewelry (www.safepiercing.org/piercing/jewelry-for-initial-piercings).

I’m a minor, can I get tattooed or pierced at your studio?

In the state of Texas, you MUST be 18 years of age or older to get tattooed, meaning that there is no such thing as parental consent and it is actually illegal to get tattooed if you are under the age of 18.

We do perform piercings on minors and have age restrictions on certain piercings, please contact us regarding which piercing you are interested in.

For minors, parent/ guardian must be present with government issued ID and provide evidence of the minor’s identity and guardianship status, via government issued ID (State ID or driver’s license, military dependent card, passport) with matching last names and address.

Children’s ear lobe piercings are offered on an appointment basis, Tuesday through Thursday, and a consultation appointment at least 24 hours in advance is required to set an appointment. Child must be 5 years of age or older and verbally express consent to the piercer that they would like their earlobes pierced. Birth certificate for child and government issued ID for parent are necessary to perform the piercings.
