Services and Policies
Lucky Monkey Tattoo is a custom tattoo shop. We work with you to create the tattoo YOU want and that you'll cherish for a lifetime. The following is important information regarding how to set up an appointment, payment and our policy regarding minors. Please feel free to stop in if you have any additional questions.
Appointments & Walk Ins:
While we make every effort to accommodate Walk Ins, we strongly recommend booking an advance appointment instead. Walk ins are on a first come, first serve basis and typically are for small to medium size tattoos. Please keep in mind if you are looking for a Japanese dragon sleeve, Bettie Page portrait or Celtic chest piece - you'll need to set up an appointment.
To Make an Appointment - please come in for a FREE consultation. We will discuss your tattoo idea, design elements, size, placement and give you a no-obligation price quote. If you decide to book an appointment you'll need to leave a $50 deposit which will go towards the total cost of your tattoo. Deposits are non-refundable. On the day of your appointment you will see your drawing. Any revisions will be made then. We won't start inking you until you are satisfied with your design and placement.
Pricing, Payments & Guarantee
Lucky Monkey Tattoo's prices are in line with all the reputable shops in Michigan. We have a $50 shop minimum. Our prices are roughly $120 - $140 an hour. We tend to price more by piece and will work with you if you have a budget in mind. Please come in for a no-obligation price quote. We do not quote tattoo prices over the phone or via email.
Payment: We accept cash and all major credit cards except American Express. We do not accept checks.
Guarantee: We back all of our work. You are entitled to one complimentary touch up after your tattoo is healed (within six months of original ink).
Lucky Monkey does not tattoo anyone under the age of 18 - even with parental consent. You must be at least 18 with a valid photo ID to get inked at Lucky Monkey. If you are 17 years old - and would like to plan your tattoo for when you turn 18 - feel free to stop in the shop to discuss your tattoo and make an appointment.
Additionally, no one under the age of 16 is allowed in the tattoo shop.
**Our sister shop - Lovely Monkey Tattoo in Whitmore Lake, Michigan will tattoo minors ages 16 and 17 with Parental Consent. Please call 734-333-5067 to arrange.
Most of the ink we use is Vegan including Eternal, Starbrite, Waverly, and Intenze. If you specifically want to get tattooed with Vegan ink - please discuss with your artist during your consultation.
