Getting the best experience

We are focused on producing the best custom tattoo work possible for all of our clients. Our artists pride themselves on being able to confidently fulfill any request of any style. Most of our work is done by appointment, but we also accept walk-ins. We cannot guarantee that we will always have time for a walk-in, but if you are planning to stop by it is best to call ahead or come first thing in the day. We do not book appointments over the phone, but we can let you know what the schedule looks like for that day! All walk-ins are first come, first served. We do not tattoo anyone who is under 18, ID is required.

Custom Designs

When planning a custom design, it is best to set an appointment for a consultation with one of our artists. Bring in any reference material you may have to help the artist get a better understanding of what you are looking for. Speak to them about the area you would like it placed and the overall feeling of the design. From there, you will be asked to place a minimum deposit that will be debited from the total of your tattoo and make an appointment.

Between the time of your consultation and the appointment, the artist will draw the design. You can view the design if it is finished, prior to your appointment if you wish. From there, exact positioning will be discussed at your appointment. There is no fee for the initial consultation, but all deposits are non-refundable.

Tattoo Aftercare

After the artist has completed your new tattoo, it is very important to care for it so it will look perfect. Tattoos generally take about 2 weeks to heal, although it may differ depending on each person's immune system and the area the tattoo is placed. Here are Solid Ground Tattoo's instructions for healing:

  • Leave the bandage on for 1-2 hours.
  • When you remove the bandage, ensure that your hands are thoroughly clean. Always wash your hands before touching your tattoo.
  • Use plain, unscented soap and wash tattoo gently but thoroughly with your fingertips. DO NOT use a washcloth, loofah, or paper towel as this will irritate the skin further. Your tattoo will feel slightly gooey. This is plasma and is completely normal. Wash thoroughly with soap until it no longer feels slimey. Do not place another bandage on your tattoo afterward, it needs to breathe!
  • Wash your tattoo 2-3 times daily. Do not over wash! You will dry it out and irritate the skin.
  • Begin applying a very thin layer of artist recommended ointment. Be careful not to apply too much, too often.
  • Your tattoo will get itchy. DO NOT pick or scratch at it. This can cause scarring which will damage the end look of your tattoo.
  • DO NOT take baths, go swimming, or submerge your new tattoo in any kind of water for at least 2 weeks.
  • Make sure to avoid pet hair, wear clean clothes and make sure your sheets are freshly cleaned.
  • Tattoos fade in sunlight. Minimum sun exposure or sun block recommended after two week healing period.
