We are here to assist in your decision to get a tattoo

Please read through our frequently asked questions and if you should have any additional questions or concerns, do not hesitate to call us.


How much can I expect to pay for a tattoo?


Tattoo prices vary between $120.00 to $200.00 (USD) per hour depending on artist.

Do you have a minimum for tattoos?

Yes our minimum is $60.00 (USD) for any tattoos that take less than 20 minutes.

Does it hurt to get a tattoo?


It can. Everyone has a different level of pain tolerance that can range from none to severe. Please keep in mind that the pain varies from person to person as well as the tattoo placement on the body.

Do you accept walk-in clients?


Yes. As long as there is an available artist at the studio and time permits. If the studio is unable to schedule your appointment for the  same day, we will be more than happy to schedule an appointment that is accommodating to your upcoming schedule.

How do I schedule an appointment?


Come to the studio, visit with our artists and select the artist that will best fit your tattoo needs. Schedule your appointment with the deposit included (This will hold your designated appointment time).  

What forms of payment do you accept?


A Thin Line Tattoo accepts debit/credit cards and cash. The studio does not accept personal checks.

Can I drink prior to getting a tattoo?


Absolutely not. 

Is a tattoo permanent?


Yes. Although if you decide in the future you would like your tattoo removed, there are several options that you can explore. Laser tattoo removal is the most common and preferred method. The studio also recommends considering covering up an older, unfavorable tattoo with a new tattoo that better suits you.

If I am under the age of 18, can a parent or guardian sign for me to get a tattoo?


No. The state of Illinois requires a person being tattooed be age 18 or older with a valid, government issued photo I.D. This is the law and A Thin LineTattoo does not make any exceptions.

What should I expect to bring or do when I come to A Thin Line Tattoo for my tattoo?


Please bring your valid, government issued photo I.D. as well as your form of payment.

Can I shower after getting a tattoo?


Yes, you can. 

Can I go swimming after getting a tattoo?


 No. Please refer to our Aftercare page.

Does A Thin Line Tattoo offer black light tattoos?



Does the studio offer white ink, finger or inner lip tattoos?


Yes.  A few of our artists will do them. However, our artists suggest that a client decides on pursuing either of these types of tattoos after a consultation in which a client has been able to make an informed and educated decision.

Does A Thin Line Tattoo offer piercings?


Yes. Feel free to walk-in for a piercing and/or set up an appointment time in our Plainfield location.

If I am not feeling well, should I still come to the studio for my tattoo appointment?


No. Please call us to reschedule your appointment for a time when you are feeling well.

How long can I expect to be at the studio for my tattoo?


Time varies upon many factors. Size and complexity are two factors that can become time consuming for a tattoo. Our studio offers the highest quality of tattoos and our artists want to ensure that the final tattoo meets your standards as well as our studio standards.
