A lot of people are not aware about the whole process of making a tattoo and piercing reservation. When you think about booking a tattoo and piercing appointment it may seem easy but in reality, the process is no less than chaos.

If it is your first time booking an appointment or if you are not careful, any error at that time can lead to terrible results for you and even for your work.

As booking is not a very easy job, there are a few points that you need to keep in mind while booking a tattoo or piercing appointment.

Ways To Book A Tattoo/Piercing Appointment:

1. Search For a Website

Every tattoo or Piercing shop has a website that comprises of its every detail from what it does to its location and contact number, and everything else you need to make a reservation. To avoid any kind of mishappening or communication, read every instruction carefully that you need to do for the booking.

If your favourite studio does not have a website then you can also for them on any social media platform as this has become one of the main places for artists to promote their work.

2. Call the Studio

If you are not able to find the website or you didn’t find anything useful on it then you can also directly call them, contact numbers are usually mentioned on the internet.

A lot of times many tattoo studios do not consist of reception or an assistant for the bookings, so you may have a hard time getting through the appointment or to the artist, so keep trying.

3. Visit the Studio

To make a reservation you can also go and visit the tattoo/piercing studio, through this way you can also take a look at the studio better and communicate with your artist about the tattoo or piercing you are looking for or you can also share thoughts you have in mind about the work you art you are looking for.

But be careful as some studios do not allow on-the-spot bookings, but you can still go and have a look at the parlour or you can also tell them about the reservation issue that you were facing and then they will most likely make the appointment.

4. Pre - Consultation

Before finalising your appointment make sure to have a little chat with your artist to make sure that you both are on the same page and you are comfortable with your artist. Then you can end the conversation with a consultation plan.

5. Share Your Ideas

The last step of your booking is the consultation. You can share all your desired tattoo ideas and whatever you are looking for, you and your artist can share all kinds of aftercare tips or the artist can recommend any of his/her ideas.

Try to have an open conversation; don’t be afraid to ask anything. Make sure you have discussed which part of your body you want to get a tattoo or piercing on or whether is it safe, the design, size, colour, tools, procedures, health and hygiene and most importantly the cost.

Most likely, all these tips should be able to help you to make your final booking a success with your chosen studio and artist.


Booking a tattoo/piercing appointment is just like making a reservation for any other thing, so it requires the same importance and attention just as any other appointment. Make sure to do the best research and also ask for other people's recommendations about the best studios near you.

As mentioned before look for websites, if not websites then social media and if you do not find anything useful over there as well then try to contact the shop or just visit the studio. Keep some extra money with you in case they ask for an advance. Follow all the instructions given by your artist to get the best work done.
