Frequently asked questions
How do I book a consultation/tattoo appointment?
There are many ways, BUT, preferably, we recommend you dont be shy and give us a call at the shop, and speak directly to the artist you're hoping to see!
You can email us, firstname.lastname@example.org! We do try to be as responsive as possible on social media such as Facebook and Instagram but being spread over so many outlets we try to encourage phoning in or emailing to ensure we get to back to you promptly.
Is it safe to get tattooed? Are you health board approved?
YES! AND, Anthem Tattoo Co. (ATC) is 100% fully disposable! That means we do not reuse ANY piece of tattoo equipment or materials that have been used in a previous set up.
ATC and it's artists are all Certified under the Health Educators and have in depth bloodborne pathogen and cross contamination prevention training and have the certificates to prove it. We work hard to meet and exceed Alberta Health Board regulations and standards and take pride in our ability to say we offer you a clean and safe environment for everyone to get tattooed!
Do I tip my artist?
Although they are not expected, Tips, of course, are always appreciated. Cash is always a go to, but dont be shy, get to know your artist, and maybe spoil them with a gift of something cool and unique to put on display and make everyone jealous!
