IS THERE A CASH MACHINE NEARBY?
CAN I GET TATTOOED DURING THE FESTIVAL?
Yes! Check the list of artists
who will be there, and contact the ones you’re interested in directly. Each artists organizes their schedule as they wish and will (or will not) schedule a time for you. Artists receive many requests and sometimes take a bit of time to respond. Be patient, and they’ll get back to you. ;)
DO I NEED TO SET A TIME TO GET TATTOOED?
Yes, it’s the best thing to do! Get in touch with the artists you’re interested in: they’ll reply to you according to your specific request and their availability. Some artists don’t take appointments and prefer to offer flash tattoo designs that you select when you arrive, on a first-come, first-serve basis.
I PLAN TO GET TATTOOED AT THE FESTIVAL. DO I STILL HAVE TO PAY THE ADMISSION FEE?
Yes. No exemptions are given for clients of tattoo artists. Organizers do not take any percentage on their work.
CAN I GET TATTOOED AT THE FESTIVAL WITHOUT AN ADVANCE APPOINTMENT?
Yes! Many artists offer flash tattoo designs to choose from on a walk-in basis at the festival: therefore, it is indeed possible to get tattooed without contacting the artist in advance. In this case, we recommend arriving early with an advance-sale ticket, to avoid waiting in line at the entrance.
I’M UNDERAGE. CAN I GET TATTOOED AT THE FESTIVAL?
By law, tattooing a minor without written consent from at least one parent is strictly prohibited. If you are under 18 years of age and you want to get tattooed at the festival, the presence of at least one of your parents will be absolutely required to sign the consent form.
