First of all we want to wish Happy New Year 2018 to all, and thanks to all our lovely clients for the passed year. Last year we’ve bumped into few improvements in our booking- and deposit practices, so we developed our service to make it clearer and unify your visits in our studio:

FAQ booking & designing

After you’ve made a decision to have a tattoo, we wish primarily face to face consultation in our studio. This is how we get the best picture of your wishes, and are able to get in work faster with your tattoo designing. You may get in touch straight to your tattooer, or to studio for booking time for your consultation.

Small tattoos are possible tattoo as walk-in works, when it doesn’t require extra designing. You may come to stop by, or take contact prior that. Small walk-in tattoos minimun charge is 100€.

In connection with consultation we book a tattoo appointment, and charge 100€ for design. This amount is NOT refundable, as it covers one tattoo designing processes e-mails, designing work time and time spent on taking care of other connections, which every tattooer spends besides the basic tattoo work.

Ready design is able to see in the studio, when you arrive to your tattoo appointment, but by request, it may be seen few days advanced. If you wish to have your tattoo design plenty ahead of time, we charge (instead of basic 100€) 200 to 300€, as it goes before other clients’ work in queue. This is urgent to settle when booking your time in consultation, we cannot guarantee changes in schedule afterwards.

We also charge in connection of booking an appointment deposit (100-300€ depending the booking timeframe), which is pre-payment of your tattoo. This will be taken off your final price, and it is no extra charge for you. If you don’t cancel your appointment before 24h of your appointment, or are not able to confirm your illness or any other force-majeure-situation with for example medical certificate, deposit is not refundable, and it’s a compensation for your tattoo artist for work hour loss. We had to take this practice back in our procedures for assure subsistence of our tattooers, and we certainly want to thank most of our clients, who friendly and considerately cancel/postpone their appointments in good timeframe prior the actual date.

Studio’s gift cards are valid for ONEYEAR, and are qualified for any tattooer working in our studio. Please take care to book your appointment well in advanced by keeping in mind there might be queues for tattooers, so you are able to use your voucher when it is still valid. If you don’t take care enough early of your booking dates, we’re not able to guarantee an appointment for you pass the queue line. Gift cards are not changeable for cash in any circumstances.

You are able to pay with cash (we only accept our local currency – euroes €), by commonly used credit/debit cards, invoice with same day due date (only for old customers who’ve paid previously in time) or bank transfer made on the premises. Our card payment device charges using fee connected to your payment amount, as well as our invoiciing system takes additional billing amount. We do not write invoices with longer billing perioids, invoicing arrangements or grant credit: Instead you have to take care your possible credit with third party finance companies before you are having a tattoo.

We wish these practices to ease our co-operation by clearing and fastening the process to all parties. We hope very good upcoming year with quality tattoos! 🙂

………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..

Aivan ensimmäiseksi haluamme toivottaa kaikille hyvää alkanutta vuotta 2018, ja kiitos kaikille ihanille asiakkaillemme kuluneesta vuodesta. Viime vuotena törmäsimme pieniin parannuksiin ajanvaraus- ja maksukäytänteissä, joten kehitimme selvyyden vuoksi palveluamme helpottaaksemme ja yhtenäistääksemme teidän asiakkaiden asioimista meillä:

FAQ ajanvaraus & suunnittelu

Kun olet tehnyt päätöksen ottaa tatuointi, toivomme ensisijaisesti konsultaatiota paikan päällä kasvokkain. Näin saamme parhaimman kuvan toiveistasi, ja pääsemme nopeammin sunnittelemaan sinun toiveitasi vastaavan kuvan. Voit ottaa yhteyttä suoraan tatuoijaan, tai studiolle vastataksesi ajan konsultaatioon.

Pienet kuvat usein onnistuvat walk-in töinä, eikä niitä tarvitse erikseen suunnitella. Voit toki tulla paikan päälle, tai ottaa ensiksi yhteyttä. Pienissä walk-in kuvissa minimiveloitus on 100€.

Konsultaation yhteydessä varaamme tatuointiajan, ja veloitamme 100€ suunnittelumaksun. Tätä summaa EI palauteta, sillä se kattaa yhden mallin suunnitteluun, sähköpostien ja muiden yhteyksien hoitamiseen käytettyn työajan, mikä jokaiselta tatuoijalta kuluu itse tatuoimistyön lisäksi työhön.

Valmis malli on nähtävillä kun saavut tatuointiajallesi, mutta pyynnöstä se on nähtävillä muutamia päiviä etukäteen. Mikäli haluat kuvan runsaasti etuajassa, veloitamme (100 € suunnittelumaksun sijasta) 200-300€ jonon ohi menevistä suunnittelutöistä, ja nämä on sovittava erikseen konsultaation yhteydessä, ei jälkikäteen.

Lisäksi veloitamme ajanvarauksen yhteydessä ennakkomaksun (100-300€ riippuen kuvaan käytettävästä ajasta) joka toimii tatuoinnin ennakkoon suoritettavana osamaksuna. Tämä vähennetään lopullisesta tatuoinnin hinnasta, eli se ei ole ylimääräistä kulua sinulle. Mikäli kuitenkaan ET peru aikaasi 24h ennen tatuointiaikaasi, tai pysty osoittamaan sairastumistasi luotettavasti esim. lääkärintodistuksella, ennakkomaksua ei palauteta. Kyseinen osamaksu toimii korvauksena hävityistä työtunneista tatuoijallesi, sillä yrittäjällä syntyy taloudellista miinusta peruuttamattomista ajoista. Tämän köytännön olemme joutuneet ottamaan takaisin turvataksemme tatuoijien toimeentulon, ja haluamme kiittää suurinta osaa asiakkaistamme, jotka siirtävät/peruvat aikansa hyvissä ajoin huomioiden ystävällisesti kaikki osapuolet.

Studion lahjakortit ovat VUODEN voimassa studion kaikille tatuoijille ostopäivästä, eikä niitä voi käyttää vanhentumisen jälkeen. Pidäthän huolen, että varaat aikasi hyvissä ajoin huomioiden jonot, joita tatuoijillamme on, jotta saat varmasti käytettyä lahjakorttisi sen voimassaolon puitteissa. Mikäli et huolehdi ajoissa ajanvarauksestasi, emme voi taata sinulle aikaa muiden aikojen ohi. Lahjakortteja ei vaihdeta rahaksi missään olosuhteissa.

Maksaa voit käteisellä (vastaanotamme vain paikallista valuuttaa- euroja €), kortilla, saman päivän laskulla (vain vanhat, ajallaan maksaneet asiakkaat) tai paikan päällä tehdyllä tilisiirrolla. Korttimaksupäätteemme veloittaa ostoksesi summaan sidonnaisen korttimaksulisän, samoin laskutuksessamme on laskutuslisä. Emme kirjoita laskuja maksuajalla, maksujörjestelyillä tai luotolla, vaan sinun on hoidettava mahdollinen luottosi niitä myöntävien finanssitahojen kanssa kuntoon ennen tatuoinnin ottoa.

Toivomme näiden käytänteiden helpottavan yhteistyötämme selkeyttäen ja nopeuttaen prosessia kaikille osapuolille. Oikein hyvää tulevaa vuotta kaikille hyvien tatuointien merkeissä! 🙂

After many years working in industry has brought ups and downs as proper, long relationships tend to do. Yet, it is phenomenal to wake up at mornings, drink your coffee with thoughts like how cool stuff I’m ought to draw today, great clients to bond with, nice surroundings to work in, but also, inspirational people to have as a co-workers.

Today we arrived in our studio, and found amazing oil paintings on our office desk: It is a anniversary of our very gifted apprentice Paula. She had painted portraits of us all three tattooers, who had guided her on her way to become a tattooer.


Full respect from our whole studio, congratulations! It’s been quite a year: It has been a lot of long hours, unbuilding coil machines, endless amount of briefing and consulting with designs, cleaning, learning aseptics and hygiene, tattoo history, learning to work with clients, economics and so on. Just to mention few aspects. But it certainly pays the dues to have a bright attitude, good (bad) sense of humor and true to yourself. We’re about to have brand new full time tattooer sooner or later.

All the good things takes time, just like tattooing, and SPECIALLY learning to tattoo. It is like charging the battery: More time you spend loading it, more you gain value in it. Tattooing is not business for us, it is a passion. Fresh energies, pure motives, thinking outside the box and creativity are our values, and together we amplify those powers to move more freely.

We are certainly happy to have you in our collective Paula, as you bring your own impact to our synergy.

Just a quick reminder- for super tiny and small tattoos we are always holding small slots in our schedule. Bigger works always by an appointment.

If you’re in need for tiny tattoo, please e-mail us studio @ lrtattoo.com or give us a call +358 500 420 923, so we can arrange your appointment/walk-in tattoo asap.

High quality hygiene and aseptics have been our priority values as working in professional studio. EU controlled vegan inks, staff knowledge and training about pathogen cross-contamination and right products for keeping our studio tidy and far from any pathogens is very important for us, no matter is you tattoo tiny or huge.

Welcome!
