      Thanks for the complement 😉

      Do you have an appointment with an artist? We are very busy this month and if you drop in as a walk-in there is a high chance you could not get Tattooed due to our artists already being booked for the weekend.

      Get back to me and I can help ya out further,

    1. Good Evening Austin,

      We would love to help you out with this.
      We have 4 Artists. All 4 of our artists have COMPLETELY different tattoo styles. I’d advise you to take a look at our artist’s work via our Instagram @luckyhandtattoos (I keep our Instagram super up-to-date) Once you’ve decided which artist you’re interested in working with, I’d be happy to give you their contact info so that you can contact them and schedule a face to face consult to discuss this desired piece. (All of our artists are solely in charge of their own individual scheduling and pricing)

      Let me know when you’ve made your decision 😉

    1. Good Morning Hadynn,

      I can help you with this 🙂 Just shoot Artist Chris a Text Message going over what you just told me and he can take a look at his schedule and make you an appointment to come in and speak with him about this piece. But keep in mind, Artist Chris is off every Tuesday & Wednesday. Our shop is open 7 days a week, however we give each artist 2 days off. Artist Chris’ days off are Tuesday & Wednesday 🙂 He has 3 small kiddos so he enjoys those days with his family.
