Appointments & Pricing

How do I make an appointment to get tattooed?

The best way to make an appointment would be to visit our tattoo studio at Desa Sri Hartamas. We are open from Wednesday to Sunday from 11 a.m to 7 p.m.

A non refundable RM 200 deposit will be required to make an appointment. You have 48 hour window to reschedule your appointments if there is a need.

Please bring along your reference/pictures/ideas for a quick consult or email it to us.

For overseas/outstation clients please contact the shop via email. Please include in the email any reference and a description of the tattoo you wish to have.

Once we receive these details, we then can determine how long it would take to tattoo your design. We will then schedule your appointment accordingly and issue you a quotation.

Please understand it is not our wish to take your money for work not done but a last minute cancellation results in a loss of income for our artists.

How long would I have to wait to get a free appointment slot ?

If your tattoo is small, the wait is between a day to a week. For a larger tattoo please inform us on the time-frame you want the tattoo to be completed by . Please note, a full day is required to outline a sleeve or a backpiece.

Is there a way to estimate how much a tattoo might cost?

A brand new tattoo

Tattoos that are larger (sleeves, backpieces etc)require a larger deposit of RM 500 for half a day or RM 1000 for a full day. This is for the initial outlining session which will take a long time. During the filling in process you pay for your sessions according to your budget or agreed cost per session.

Small tattoos come with free aftercare. However for larger tattoos you will have to purchase a tube.

Touch Ups

Touch ups on tattoos done by our artists are free and valid for a period of 5 years. Anything older we will charge a small fee for needles and aftercare .which maybe between RM 50 to RM 100 size dependent.


Cover-ups or rework of tattoos done outside of our studio costs RM 300 plus the price of the tattoo. We do this because tattooing over scarred up skin takes longer and its more difficult to mask over an old tattoo. Please be aware that cover-ups gives us a limited choice in design but we will advise you on the best course of action.

*We reserve the right to refuse to cover up tattoos from certain individuals and tattoo shops that are known not to practice tattoo hygiene.

*Please note, for cover-ups on tattoos done by our artists would just be the price of a new tattoo.
