For piercing cost and inquiries please contact


 48 hour advance notice is required to cancel or reschedule an appointment or deposit will be forfeit.


Any client arriving later than 30 minutes to a scheduled appointment, without having given notice to their artist in advance, is at risk of losing their deposit. Arriving unprepared for your appointment (e.g., not having proper identification) and thereby causing a delay in, or resulting in rescheduling of your appointment, may also result in loss of deposit, at the artist's discretion.

Government issued ID is required at the time of your appointment.

No one under 18 years old will be tattooed. While it is legal in the state of Idaho to tattoo minors with parental consent, we have decided as a shop that it is better to wait until one is 18. Many factors have gone in to this decision, and as a whole we feel tattooing minors gives rise to too many potential complications that we would rather reserve for informed adults.

Artful Dodger Tattoo is a custom shop. We want you to have a meaningful and exclusive tattoo; as such we refuse to tattoo copies of other people’s tattoos. Our artists will use ideas based on your references to generate a custom tattoo only for you.

We will not tattoo you while you are pregnant or nursing. Although there is a debate among professionals about whether or not tattooing causes stress to the baby, we would rather not take the risk. There is plenty of time after you give birth to get tattooed, so let’s wait and make sure your baby is healthy.

Artful Dodger will never tattoo symbols of hate or prejudice.

Being under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol runs the risk of you not only being an ass and possibly getting asked to leave, you also run the risk of needing a more significant touch up later on. Person's are required to be of sound mind in order to make the decision to be tattooed, so please stay off the ‘mood enhancers’ – at least until after your tattoo is done.

If you have a heart condition, epilepsy, HIV/AIDS, hepatitis, diabetes, hemophilia, take medicine which thins the blood or any other communicable disease, talk to your doctor first and PLEASE advise your artist before your appointment.


Artful Dodger Tattoo reserves the right to refuse service to anyone for any reason. 

 Each artist makes the decision to tattoo an individual based on their own descretion -- in particular, with regard to hand/finger/face/neck tattoos.

This is a rolling list of policies and we may add or modify a policy at any time.
