FAQ



HOW DO I BOOK AN APPOINTMENT?

In order to book your ink at Unikat, you should fill this form.
Please understand that we do not take appointment over our Facebook page.

If you need advice or would like to meet your artist first, you can write them an email to ask for a free consultation appointment.

When we know what you want to have we give you a quote. If you are happy with it, you can book a tattoo-appointment by paying a 50 euros deposit.
This amount will be deducted from your final tattoo price on your tattoo day.

Pay attention that your deposit is non-refundable. If you cannot make it to your appointment, you should let us know minimum 24H in advance and we will offer you to reschedule it.
If you fail to show up or to reschedule, your deposit is lost.
Deposit is also non-transferable, it is meant for your artist to block time and prepare the design for you.

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?

Minimum-rate at Unikat is 100,00 Euros, no matter how small the tattoo is. Then, it depends on the design, its size, its level of detail and where on the body you want to have it done. Therefore, we can give you a precise quote once we know what you want. Note that tattoos on the rip-cage are generally more expensive because the skin stretches up to the double, which makes it quite challenging for your artist to tattoo you.

WHICH ARTIST IS THE RIGHT ONE FOR ME?

We have 5 resident artists working at Unikat and regularly invite guests.
You should first go through the portfolios and check out our blog to know who’s visiting us.
You can either pick up from the artist designs or request a costumed design.

HOW CAN I GET READY FOR MY TATTOO?

3 days before my tattoo-appointment you should cream the area where you are going to get tattooed. This is for your skin to react best to the inking.
On your appointment day, you should have some food and be well rested before coming.
Do not take alcohol nor drugs before the appointment.

I HAVE A BAD TATTOO, CAN YOU FIX IT?

We have to meet you and have a look at the tattoo. Please send us an email to organize a consultation appointment. Attach photos of your tattoo with its measurements and precise your idea with examples of tattoos you like.
Please note that we can only work on healed tattoos, in other words, your tattoo has to be 2 month old for us to be able to work on it.

IS IT POSSIBLE TO TATTOO ON TOP OF SCARS?

It depends on the scar, its quality. The scar has to be minimum 2 years old. Please send us an email to organize a consultation appointment .

DO YOU DO COVER UP?

You must know that in order to make a cover over your tattoo it has first to be completely healed. Then, it is most likely that it will be transformed into a bigger, darker tattoo. There is no way we can make it lighter.
You should first select your artist and contact him/her directly per email with your details.

DO YOU TATTOO FINGERS?

Some of us do. What you need to be aware of though, is that tattoos on fingers are very likely to fade. Hence, you might need a retouch, at your own cost.

I WOULD LIKE TO GET A WHITE TATTOO, DO YOU DO THAT?

You must know though that there is no such thing as real white tattoo. White ink will take a different tone depending on your skin and the healing. Most of the time it becomes beige. Madame Unikat does white tattoos.

DO YOU DO COLOURED TATTOOS?

No, at UNIKAT we do not work with colours.

CAN YOU TATTOO MY OWN DESIGN?

It depends. If it is your own drawing it can be that we have to slightly redesign it for it to be tattooed. If it is a drawing or a tattoo that you took from the internet, we won’t be able to do it as we do not steal nor copy the artworks of others unless you have a written agreement of the artist.

DO YOU TAKE WALK-INS?

You can give us a call at 03055224142 to check if we have time for you, but do know that we usually tattoo on appointment only. Therefore it is best for you to organize ahead.
Every First Saturday of the month, we host a Flash Day. It’s the occasion to pop in and get inked!

CAN I GET THE SAME TATTOO AS I HAVE SEEN ONLINE?

As a general rule we do not make a single design twice. However you can ask us to draw again a new unique version for you – inspired by a tattoo you liked.

I AM UNDER 18, CAN I STILL GET TATTOOED?

You can, if you are in your 18th year – with a written and signed authorization of, at least one of your parents / who is legally responsible for you as well as a copy of their passport. However we won`t tattoo you on the finger, on the hand, neck, or any body part you won’t be able to hide in the future.

DO YOU ALSO DO TEMPORARY TATTOOS?

No we don`t, all our tattoos are permanent.

I HAVE A TATTOO APPOINTMENT: WHEN DO I GET TO SEE MY DRAWING?

It depends on your artist. Some of us will send you a drawing a day before so you can give your feedback. Others will wait that you come for your appointment to discuss with you the design they have prepared.
In any case, there will always be time and the possibility for you to readjust the design with your artist until you are happy with it.

I CANNOT COME TO MY APPOINTMENT, CAN I GET MY DEPOSIT BACK?

If you cannot come to your appointment, let us know at least 24 hours before. We will offer you to reschedule the appointment. We do not refund deposits.
