For the purposes of this form, all booking fees are hereinafter referred to as deposits. You will be required to pay a deposit to reserve your tattoo booking with any artist within the Dark Forge. Deposits can be paid directly to your artist via their preferred payment method. The deposit amount will vary, this will all depend on the amount of time allocated for your tattoo and these deposits are NON REFUNDABLE.
Your deposit will be deducted off the total cost of your tattoo on the day of your appointment. If your tattoo requires multiple sittings (such as full sleeves, chest and back pieces), you will be required to keep your deposit on file and roll it over until all of your sessions until the final sitting where it will be deducted off your last tattoo appointment. If you are booking back to back sessions (one day after the other) then you will be required to pay a larger deposit to cover the time you are booking out - Example 2x full days will require a $600 deposit.
We understand that due to unforeseen circumstances you may need to cancel or reschedule your appointment. It is best if you wish to cancel or move an appointment that you do this directly with your artist. At The Dark Forge we have a 72-hour cancellation policy (3 days before your tattoo appointment) where you are able to reschedule to another day. however if you are inside that 72-hour window your deposit will be forfeited to the artist. If you wish to make another appointment you will need to put another deposit down to secure the spot. All deposits at The Dark Forge Tattoo Shop are non refundable even outside of our 72 hour cancellation policy.
AT THE DARK FORGE TO ENSURE YOUR TATTOO RUNS AS SMOOTHLY AS POSSIBLE FOR YOURSELF AND THE ARTIST PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING
Please be prepared and arrive on time. This is very important as running late will cut into your tattooing time!
To ensure you sit comfortably through your tattoo and to avoid any fatigue or unexpected sickness, dizziness or fainting please make sure you eat a hearty filling meal before you arrive at the studio. A coffee is not enough and especially DO NOT come on an empty stomach.
Please also remember that you may be sitting in the tattoo chair for long periods of time so be prepared and grab something to drink and a few snacks as well any sort of entertainment (headphones or a book) to keep you going throughout the day.
Please think about the area you are getting tattooed and make sure you wear appropriate clothing to ensure the artist will have easy access to the area being tattooed.
Girls if you are getting an area such as upper thigh, chest area or ribs you can bring swimwear or a towel as we don’t always have privacy in the studio, if this something that would make you feel more comfortable.
Please make sure you listen to your artist aftercare instructions and follow them correctly.
Remember to always TRUST your artist, they are giving you their time, energy and recommendations from design placement to fully completing the tattoo for you so please be respectful and work with your artist to ensure you have the best tattoo.
Please respect the artists time and effort they put into your tattoo to create something custom for you so PLEASE DO NOT show up for your appointment unwell, under the influence, sunburnt or with any medical or physical concerns that may prevent your artist from tattooing you on the day.

Your deposit WILL NOT be refunded and you will be required to pay another deposit should you wish to make a new date with the artist.
