Schedule Your Tattoo
We offer free consultations.
Simply call us at 608.249.7352 or stop by to schedule an appointment with an artist of your choice. Bring in any reference images for your custom art to your consultation appointment. The artist will discuss your ideas and provide a time and price range.
Schedule a Tattoo Appointment
Once the artist has met with you at your consultation appointment, the next step is to book an appointment to get your tattoo. Tattoos are mainly by appointment at Ultimate Arts, a popular exception is every Saturday, which is walk-in only day. All tattoo appointments require a deposit, which will be applied to the price of the tattoo.
Get your tattoo
At your appointment the artist should have art ready for you. After you have agreed to the artwork and the artist has made any last minute changes to the tattoo sketch they will create a stencil of the tattoo. They will place the stencil on the desired tattoo location to ensure the placement and size of the art is perfect before they even start poking. Stencils can be placed several times if needed to get the perfect placement. Some tattoos are drawn directly on the skin making the moving of the art more difficult. Please communicate with your artist, it is never a bother to tell us what you like and don't like. Communication during the entire process is very important. Please don't forget to present your deposit slip when you pay for your tattoo.
Each artist is different and books out differently. Plan ahead is always best.
