Tattoo Policies at Suminu Tattoo in Nepal

Last Updated on 23rd May 2022.

Please keep this in mind, we want to tattoo you & we are always looking forward to it. We want to deliver the best experience for all our clients and artists throughout the process.
But if you are not serious about getting tattooed, please just wait until you are sure. We all work very hard, and manage our time accordingly so please respect the following policies of our studio at all times:

1. 18 and Over Policy: You must be at least 18 years old for you to get a tattoo.

2. Minimum Charge Policy:
The minimum charge is the absolute lowest amount that we charge to cover the time and expense of a sanitary setup, cleaning-up of the working station, equipment as well as single-use supplies necessary to provide a clean and safe tattoo by our professionals. This is applied per person getting tattooed, per session.  Even if you get a small tattoo of one simple dot, the cost will be the minimum.  If you and a friend are getting matching simple dot tattoos, the cost for each of you will be the minimum.  If you want multiple small tattoos on your body at the same tattoo session, you will be charged a flat rate or hourly (so if you wish to multiple tiny tattoos, it is more cost-effective for you to get more than one at a time).  Please note that any tattoo that takes more than 30 minutes will not be valid for the minimum charge policy and is calculated accordingly.

3. Advance/ Pre-appointment Deposit Policy: 
Deposits will be deducted from the final cost of your tattoo at your final session unless your deposit is forfeited.
Deposits are forfeited in the following cases:
(a) If you don’t show up for the appointment / cancel with less than 24 hours advance notice unless an emergency case.
(b) If you reschedule more than twice.
(c) If you arrive for an appointment more than 30 minutes late without any prior information.
(d) If you arrive for an appointment intoxicated or otherwise not in the condition to be tattooed.
(e) If you request excessive or last-minute changes to the design or concept that is what was agreed.
(f) If you decide not to get tattooed at all.
If you forfeit a deposit, you may be required to leave a new deposit before booking any new appointment(s). Deposits cannot be transferred to another person.

4. Cancellation Policy:
All appointments require a minimum of 24 hours advance notice for cancellation. In special cases as relevant, with prior notice, your deposit may be applied to a future appointment even if you have to cancel the scheduled appointment.  DEPOSITS ARE NON-REFUNDABLE.

5. Reschedule Policy: 
All appointments require at least 24 hours’ notice to reschedule.  If at least 24 hours’ notice is given, your deposit may be applied to your new appointment.  If an appointment is rescheduled more than twice, your deposit will be forfeited.

6. Late Policy: 
Please let us know if you will be late for an appointment.  If you are 30 minutes or later for an appointment without advance notice, you may forfeit your deposit, lose your appointment, and be required to reschedule and leave a new deposit.

7. Artwork Policy: 
We will not send you a custom design for your review until your appointment is fixed.  Any revisions that stay within the idea as discussed during consultation can be made on the day of your appointment.  If you change your idea, placement, concept, etc, and significant or excessive revisions are required, your deposit will be forfeited and your appointment will need to be rescheduled and a new deposit may also be required.

8. Refund Policy: 
NO REFUNDS for any reason.  In the unlikely event of a mistake, it is our duty as the artist to fix it for no additional cost. Please contact the studio as soon as possible.

9. Guest Policy:  
You may bring only one guest with you to accompany you during your tattoo session.  Your guest must be over the age of 18.  Out of respect for the other clients getting tattooed who need to relax, as well as the artists who need to focus on their work, any excess guests or disruptive guests will be asked to leave.  Children or minors are not allowed in the tattooing area at any time.

10. Pets Policy:  
Any animal or pet in the tattooing area is strictly prohibited.

Thank you for your time in reading and agreeing to the above studio policies. We look forward to welcoming you to your tattoo and having a great experience together.
