FAQ

Once you’ve decided you want your tattoo carried out at Taiga Ink (thank-you!), you can either call us on (insert number), book a consultation online using our website here, email us at bookings@taiagink.com or stop by our shop in downtown Helsinki and we can have a chat.

P.S We only book appointments a maximum of three months in advance.

The minimum legal age for getting a tattoo without parental consent in Finland is 18. We won’t tattoo anyone without a valid form of documentation (passport, drivers license, official ID card).

Of course! However, we can’t guarantee someone will be available to tattoo you right there and then. We will do our utmost to get you an appointment as soon as possible.

First of all, don’t worry! We’re going to take good care of you :). Try to eat before your appointment and keep yourself hydrated. We wouldn’t recommend partying too hard the night before because 1: you’re not gonna feel great and 2: alcohol thins your blood which can cause additional bleeding. Just in-case you start to feel woozy, bring some sugar – this can really help (plus it tastes good)!

Wellll, yeah, it’s gonna hurt a bit. But don’t worry, it’s nothing serious and your body will release endorphins after a little while making it hurt less. Our bodies are clever little things!

Yes, totally :). At Taiga Ink we pride ourselves in being serious about our cleanliness and sterilization procedures. We use sterile one-time use tubes and needles and if you have concerns, our artists will be happy to discuss this with you. You’re safety and peace of mind is very important to us.

During your consultation with one of our artists, you’ll receive a quote for the tattoo piece you want to be created. Once agreed, we ask for a non-refundable, non-transferable 25% deposit of the total tattoo cost (minimum of 50 Euros) to confirm your first session. The deposit is put towards the final cost of the tattoo. Our artist will then start designing your tattoo, ready for your first session – yay!

The total cost will vary depending on the size and complexity of the tattoo and the artist, however, as a general guide, we charge around about 120 Euros an hour (VAT is included in the price). The tattoo artist will give you a fixed price quote for the tattoo piece during your consultation and we apply heavy discounts for longer sessions.
