Cancellations/Deposit Policies

Here at Black Market Tattoo Co we have a few simple policies in order. We want to create a streamlined professional experience in our tattoo studio for everyone involved.

Please read below why there is NO REFUND on cancellations (no exceptions):

Our Gold Coast tattoo artists base their entire day around you. This means when you do not show up the tattooist doesn’t just miss out on work. They put a hold on the appointment and therefore other clients miss out on the chance to have the spot.

The deposit also includes the time spent in deriving the booking e.g. Facebook inboxes, text messaging, email correspondence, price quoting, designing artwork, stencilling, etc.
This all takes up your tattooists time and they’re happy to do this for you, but when you cancel it puts all effort to waste.
So your deposit adds to this cost as well, if your appointment is cancelled.

Some studios may have set up all needles, tubes, machine/s, seating, benches, wrapping, etc prior to you arriving. Time spent and product used to ensure an unrushed, yet efficient tattoo procedure is all wasted if you do not show. This also adds to the cost of the deposit.

Our tattoo artists are looking forward to giving you their best. So please put yourself in the tattooist gloves and realise why there is no refund offered on cancellations.

We require a deposit for all appointments. This is credited to the cost of your tattoo and holds your appointment time.

All deposits are non-refundable, though may be used as credit for future appointments. Refunded deposits are made only under shops discretion.
