Welcome to the Frequently Asked Questions page. Hopefully you’ll find the answers to all those burning questions you have here. If you can’t find the answer you’re looking for, give us a call at 202-337-5469.


  • Does it hurt?

Of course it does, but it is the type of pain that you can ignore for the most part.  Most people are able to carry on casual conversation during the process.

  • How much does a tattoo cost?

The minimum charge is $60.  Most smaller tattoos are in the $80 – $150 range.  As the designs get larger and more labor-intensive, the prices go up.  Where you decide to put the tattoo can also affect the price.

  • Why do you charge more for different areas of the body?

We charge more if the area is hard to get to (like the chest or hip area) or where it might be more sensitive for the customer.  Both factors slow down the process and create extra work.

  • Do I need an appointment?  Can I make an appointment over the phone?

For tattoos you do not need an appointment, but you are welcome to make one.  If the design you want requires a good bit of preparation, an appointment will be necessary.  Appointments can not be made over the phone.  Saturdays are strictly for walk-ins.  All piercing is done on a walk-in basis. Appointments for laser tattoo removal can be made over the phone.

  • I would like to make a tattoo appointment, what do I need to know?

We require a deposit for all appointments.  These deposits are non-refundable.  For smaller tattoos, the deposit is $50.  For multi-session work, the deposit is pre-payment for two hours ($300 – $350 depending on the artist).  This deposit is applied to the final session of the tattoo. If you are coming in to set up appointments for large work, please call the shop first (202.337.5469)  to schedule a consultation.  This will insure that the artist you want will have time set aside to talk to you about your design, measure the area, answer questions, and estimate the number of appointments necessary.  Please bring any reference with you at that time.

  • What should I bring with me to get tattooed or pierced?

Please bring your photo I.D. (e.g. driver’s license, passport, etc.). If you are showing up for an appointment, make sure that you bring the receipt for your deposit. If you are getting a large tattoo on your torso or leg, it is a good idea to bring a pillow and/or towel that you don’t mind getting stained with ink.

It is a good idea to make sure that you have eaten a decent meal within the last hour or two before having work done. For long tattoo appointments, you are welcome to bring a couple of small snacks and a beverage.

  • Should I eat before I get tattooed?

You need to keep your blood sugar up to deal with the fatigue from being tattooed.  Bring a soda or candy bar along with you just in case.

  • Do you take credit cards?

Yes, Visa and Mastercard.

  • Should I tip the tattooer, piercer, etc. ?

If you feel like they did a good job for you, please feel free to do so.

  • Do you sterilize your needles?

Yes. All needles are sealed in sterile packages and used only once. They are then disposed of and never used again.

All ink used for the tattoo is dispensed into disposable ink caps and thrown away after each tattoo. Jinx Proof uses a Ritter M7 Speedclave brand autoclave, which we spore test bi-monthly. All tattooing and piercing equipment is sterilized on the premises.

All areas and equipment used during the process are covered in a protective plastic film.

  • Can I get a disease from a tattoo?

Not from us! See above statement.

There has never been one reported case of AIDS from a tattoo. Hepatitis is a different story and is just as deadly. However, if all needles are single use (they are) and all surfaces are protected from cross contamination (they are), the risk of you contracting anything is non-existent.

The greatest risk of any infection comes during the healing process. You must be aware that your healing tattoo is an open wound. Great care should be taken to ensure that you do not touch the tattoo with unclean hands, or expose the tattoo to unclean areas (gym equipment, seats on the metro, etc.). A little common sense and diligence will make sure that your healing goes smoothly.

We take the greatest care to ensure your personal safety, please do the same for yourself.

  • How do I take care of my tattoo?

Each tattooer will give you a business card with their name on it, with full care instructions on the back. If you don’t have this card, just follow these simple instructions:

Leave the bandage on for 3 – 12 hours.

2. Once the bandage is off, make sure that your hands are clean and gently wash the tattoo with a mild soap and water. Take care to wash the tattoo until all of the old ointment is off. Be gentle but thorough, do not scrub. Next, apply a thin coat of antibacterial ointment (e.g. Neosporin, Bacitracin, or Vitamin A & D). Repeat this process two or three times per day.

3. In a few days you will notice the tattoo peeling or getting a slight scab. Do not pick at it! That means its healing fine. Switch from the ointment to a fragrance free hand lotion like Lubriderm or Curel to keep it moist.

4. Keep it out of direct sunlight and do not soak it under water for at least 2 weeks or until completely healed.

Why do I have irritation around my tattoo?

If you have just gotten tattooed, it is normal to have some degree of redness and swelling for 12 – 48 hours. If you have some sort of rash, there are a few possible reasons. You may be sensitive to the soap or ointment that you are using, or you may be using too much ointment. If you have any concerns, please call us or come by.

  • Where are you located?

See the directions tab on the menu bar.

  • How much are your piercings?

See the piercings tab on the menu bar.

  • Can I get tattooed, etc. if I’m under 18?


  • Even if I have my parents sign for me?

Under no circumstances will we tattoo a minor. Under no circumstances will laser tattoo removal be performed for a minor. Some piercings are available to minors who are at least sixteen and have parental consent. Please call the shop for details.

  • Should I bring friends with me?

If you bring a friend or friends with you, they will have to remain in the lobby while you are getting tattooed or pierced.  Due to limited space in the work area, we can make no exceptions.

  • Can I get drunk before I get tattooed/pierced?

If you appear to be intoxicated in any way, we will refuse service.

We hope this helps. We want your experience with us to be a good one, because happy customers are our best advertisement!
