Policies

Please read through our policies thoroughly and contact us if you have any questions.

    • Consultations  We require a consultation to determine candidacy for ALL new PMU / SMP procedures. Consultation fees apply regardless of candidacy. For tattoo removal, please send photos of the tattoo to: dermagrafix.info@gmail.com for consideration. Price quotes that are older than six months old may not be honored and may require a new consultation and/or price quote. 
    • Prior Tattooing If you have a prior cosmetic tattoo you must email dermagrafix.info@gmail.com  with a picture before booking. We do not offer touch-ups on other artists' work.  Touch-up pricing is  for our previous clients only. If you are a new client to us you must book for a new procedure.
    • Booking Fees In order to book a service with Dermagrafix, a non-refundable, non-transferable booking fee must be paid upfront, in order to secure your appointment.  This fee is not tied to a particular artist, but all efforts will be made to keep your service with the artist that provided you the quote. This fee is tied to the quoted service and cannot be transferred to another service or another client. 
    • Cancellations & Reschedules We have a seven (7) day cancellation policy.  If you need to cancel or reschedule an appointment within the 7-day window, you will forfeit your booking fee, and will have to put down a new booking fee to get scheduled. Health and safety are paramount to us, and due to pre-treatment compliance, we are unable to fill canceled appointment spots at the last minute.  Phone messages are NOT a valid form of cancellation.  Please inform us via email dermagrafix.info@gmail.com OR speak to a live person at 267.454.7464. **Consultations require a 4hr notice of cancellation. Virtual consultation fees are nonrefundable for no-shows.**
    • Tardiness If you arrive ten+ minutes late for your scheduled appointment time, you will need to rebook, and will have to put down an additional booking fee to get scheduled.. If there is extra time (on this same day) and we can simply move your appointment time we are happy to do so at no charge.
  • Health & Safety  If you are feeling ill, please notify us as soon as possible to reschedule.  At Dermagrafix, we have always prioritized health & safety of our employees & staff.  If you are feeling ill, please notify us as soon as possible to reschedule. We follow all safety & sanitizing precautions set forth by OSHA 
  • Online Booking -You are able to send a booking request through our website.  Dermagrafix will confirm the appointment, assuming that the correct procedure and timeframe are selected.
  • Extra Service = Extra Fees  Dermagrafix does not offer all-inclusive tattooing or free touch-ups. Additional tattoo hours equate to additional fees. Dermagrafix’s fees are for services performed, not results received.
  • Pre-Existing Health Conditions Anyone with a health concern should inquire with their health care provider prior to receiving a cosmetic tattoo. Doctor clearance does not eliminate Dermagrafix’s right to adhere to our safety practices. If the artist feels it is unsafe to perform your session, we reserve the right decline service. Please disclose relevant information in the Health Questionnaire and during Consultation. Failure to comply with pre-treatment compliances may result in forfeiting of your scheduled appointment and ultimately, your non-refundable deposit.
  • Appointment Length Procedure times are estimated and will begin as soon as the previous session is completed and the room and equipment are properly sanitized. We recommend booking your procedure when you can allow for a cushion of time to find parking and deal with traffic. It is possible that your session can begin on-time and still run late, and this is something to consider when booking. We do our best but, in the end, we only want you and all our amazing clients to leave here looking good and having a proper session.
  • Guests & Children We are not able to accommodate guests (including children – under 18 years of age) of our clients at this time.  According to state law, children are not permitted in the studio at any time, even if accompanied with an adult. A tattoo shop is not a safe environment for a child regardless of the parent or guardians’ awareness of that fact.
  • Parental Consent We are unable to perform tattoo services on minors under the age of 18 without parental and doctor’s consent. A valid photo ID and birth certificate is required for parent / guardian verification.

Allergies Dermagrafix is unable to perform allergy testing. If allergy testing is requested, this can only be performed by a medical professional and the client assumes all associated costs with having had an allergy test. Furthermore, Dermagrafix is not responsible for allergies to pigments, anesthetics, aftercare

Online Booking, Shopping, e-Forms, curbside pick-up and online payment is
encouraged.

  1. Temperature taking will take place upon entry. Each morning staff will be checked in order to perform services. Patrons who are ill or present with any fever (100.4 F) will be rescheduled. A fee may apply if you arrive ill vs. calling ahead to reschedule. We hope this serves as incentive to respect the health of others.
  2. Sanitize- You are required to sanitize your hands upon entry.
  3. Masks must be worn upon entry and throughout the duration of your session. If you are unable or unwilling to wear a mask you can post-pone your appointment until restrictions are lifted. Deposits will NOT be refunded for non-compliance at the door.
  4. Please leave excess belongings in your car. Only essential items may enter. No food or beverages are allowed in the studio. As usual: The application of cosmetics, contact lenses and piercing is not allowed within our facility and shoes must be worn at all times.
  5. Once in our facility we ask you keep a 6’ distance from others and follow directional guides for traveling within our facility.
  6. Guests will not be permitted unless they are to accompany a minor or person with a physical disability.
  7. Forms that have been sent to you must be completed before your service. If you have been asked to complete new forms since your last visit these also must be completed prior to entry. This will help us eliminate delayed appointments and a pile up of people waiting. Our forms will now include questions regarding your health and whereabouts.
  8. We will now be adding PPE fee of $10 to each session to cover the increased cost due to the pandemic.
  9. Dermagrafix will remain an appointment-only facility.
  10. COVID-19 VACCINE.  It is important that we let your body focus on building immunity during the vaccination series, while also important that your body has an optimal setting to heal after your permanent makeup procedure.  An overlap of these two things would make it difficult to isolate the cause of any adverse responses. Based on this, there are a couple of things to be aware of timing-wise when scheduling your cosmetic tattoo and vaccinations:We will want you to complete your PERMANENT MAKEUP PROCEDURE before you get your VACCINE – you will want to wait 4 weeks after your last permanent makeup procedure to get vaccinated.

    OR

    We will want you to be complete your VACCINATION series before you start your PERMANENT MAKEUP PROCEDURE – you will want to wait 2 weeks after your final dose to start your first permanent makeup session.
