Frequently Asked Questions

I would like to get tattooed at NR Studios, how do I get booked in?

The best option is to ring us on 01242 578892 (Cheltenham) or 01392668952 (Exeter) to discuss details of the tattoo you would like and how the process works, our aim is to match you with one of our artists that meet your requirements.

Call or email us with tattoo details

We’ll book you in for a consultation – this is a 15 minute chat with the tattoo artist we think will create the best tattoo for you

The tattoo artist will develop your idea and let you know how long it will take and give you a price

You can then book in for the tattoo there and then or go away and have some time to think about it

If you decide to book in, we’ll give you available dates and take a deposit to secure the tattoo

Here are a few questions that we will answer in full when you ring us:

Do you require a booking fee? Yes, this secures the appointment and is non refundable.

Is there a waiting list or can I just walk in? Most artists have a waiting list but it always worth a call to see if we have any space.

I have some ideas but am not very artistic, can you help me design my tattoo? Absolutely, its what we do so don’t worry about design and placement, that’s what your tattoo artist is for.

How much will a tattoo cost? This is dependent on the artist, size and complexity of the design.

Can you copy an image exactly? As a custom studio we create unique artwork and will not copy other designs. To ensure the flow is correct and that you walk away with a tattoo unique to you, we can design a tattoo that takes influence from reference images.

Will we start and finish exactly on time? Not always as preparation work is critical to the final result and our artists will work until there is a natural break point.

Will I be shown the design before the day? Designs can be viewed on the day of the appointment. We always allow enough time to make any changes to the design on the day.

Are you able to do cover ups? While it is possible to cover some tattoos all cover-ups require extra attention. We will need to see the tattoo you want covering first (ideally in person).

Can I bring someone with me when I get tattooed? If we have room in the studios, no worries at all.

What inks do you use? Vegan friendly, every colour you can imagine is available.

Are children allowed in the studio? Under 18’s are only permitted in the waiting area at the front of the shop if supervised.

Do you do piercing? Our Cheltenham studio is home to FÖR Piercing, ran by Ash, arguably one of the best piercers in the UK – we recommend booking an appointment to avoid disappointment. Give us a call on 01242 578892 to check availability or email FÖR Piercing at hello@forpiercing.co.uk

How will the tattoo be priced?
Each tattoo will be priced per piece and therefore be a fixed cost. This will be agreed with the tattoo artist following the consultation.

We are also able to offer finance for a fixed number of sessions e.g. 4 sessions. This then gives you flexibility on the work that you want. If additional sessions are required you can book them in to meet your requirements.

Additional work can of course be carried out through another Finance agreement or alternative payment methods.

What APR will I be charged?
The APR is shown clearly on the credit summary throughout the credit application process. It is also shown clearly on the credit agreement itself.

Can a 3rd party compete the finance on behalf of someone else e.g. Father for a sons tattoo?
The person taking out the finance/applying for the finance will be responsible for making the re-payments, so for example, if the Father is applying for finance and accepted, it is the Father who is responsible for making the re-payments.
