Please provide links in your order notes or call, email, or fax in the information. We are doing our part to keep people safe, to pay respect to hardworking, professional artists and to maintain the integrity of this industry. If we do not receive the required information within one week, your order will be cancelled and refunded.

Please note: Due to large amounts of fraud, if your billing and shipping addresses do not match (as is often the case when the order is being shipped to a professional tattoo shop, which is our policy), it may take additional time for us to verify the order. Any additional information you could provide at check out or via email would be very helpful (EX: ‘I used my moms credit card’ , hence the different names, or ‘I will be traveling and doing a guest spot, hence the different states’).
