How much does it cost to have your tragus pierced? Also where does the cost of the jewlery start?
Anonymous

It’s $35 plus the cost of jewelry, jewelry starts at $30 and goes up from there.

When I get my industrial piercing, do you guys do it where the needle goes in once and you're done or where you put the needle through, then you put the bar through?

Once you’ve been pierced you’ll still have to have the jewelry inserted.

Hi, how do you guys charge. I cannot access your website on my computers for some reason.

For tattoos we charge $120-150 hourly depending on the artist you’re looking to work with.

Does the deposit go towards the overall cost of the tattoo?

Absolutely! Depending on the artist it will either come off at each session you book or at the end of the project. 

@kellifury in our #stcloud shop got this amazing half sleeve started on Monday. We cannot wait to see more! #wingnuttattoo #mn #tattoo

Are there any serious consequences that can happen if you get your nape pierced and it gets infected?
Anonymous

There are risks in getting any piercing. And depending on what occurs after getting said piercing a range of consequences, one of which is infection. When you get pierced we go over aftercare and general knowledge for the piercing that you get, if you have specific questions or concerns let us know then and we’ll be more than happy to answer any and all of your questions.

Is the nape piercing dermals or a bar like your belly button?
Anonymous

If you’re referencing a recent ask we were quoting for a surface bar, which is actually neither. A navel takes a curved barbell and that would be too much pressure and the nape is one spot we don’t recommend micro-dermals. The surface jewelry we use is flat and has two proper angles at each end.

This back piece is from Gabe in our #anoka shop. We love seeing people’s dreams come into fruition. You nailed it Gabe! #wingnuttattoo #mn #tattoo

I would like to get a tattoo late October. Are there any artists in Anoka that aren't booked out for months that I could get tattooed by then? Thanks!
Anonymous

The best way to see the soonest availability for schedules is to swing into the shop and chat with us about what you want to do. Please bring with any reference material you have when you come. 
As far as getting in before October it’s definitely feasible! Gabe is our only artist in Anoka that has frozen books until that time frame.

Do you do back of the neck piercing and if so, how much does it cost?
Anonymous

We do indeed pierce the nape of the neck. It’s $45 for the piercing plus the cost of the jewelry that you pick out. Jewelry starts at $35 and goes up from there. No appointment is necessary, just swing in when it works for you!

We recently updated Gabe’s portfolio and this amazing tattoo was a part of that. Head to www.wingnutmods.com to check it out or see it on our Facebook. Friendly reminder, his booking freeze is lifted September 30th. #wingnuttattoo #mn #anoka #tattoo

If my income changes between when I set up an appointment and the day of the appointment, is it rude to cancel? I feel like it's a little insulting to the artist. Is it okay to say you'll reschedule after your finances stabilize?
Anonymous

This is kind of a difficult question to answer, but here’s our best advice:

If life happens and you have to reschedule, do so ASAP. It’s not like we don’t understand that the universe throws stuff at you. Now if you call the day of and say “Oh, I’m out of state…” it seems like you don’t care. Knowing a date that you can reschedule to when you call to cancel is also really helpful, especially in the cases of artist who are booked out a ways. Also, please be understanding when there will be times where you forfeit your deposit.
