So, thinking about your next tattoo?
That’s great! And thanks for checking out our website. Welcome to Immortal Images Custom Tattoo Studio! We want you to have a final product that is better than what you were expecting or hoping for. Your satisfaction is absolutely the most important thing that matters. We do things the way we do here to make the shop run as smoothly as possible. We start with having one of the cleanest studios anywhere. We try to make this place as clean or cleaner than any doctor’s office. Safe and sterile are the only ways to start... and finish. Secondly, quality artwork is obviously a must. We try hard to make sure that we are the shop that takes that “extra step”. We realize that this artwork is going to be with you permanently. So taking those few extra minutes to prepare and make sure everything is just right before we start, as we go, and afterwards is crucial.

How do I set up an appointment?
For tattoo consultations, you are welcome to just come by anytime during business hours and we can talk with you about what you'd like to have done. We may be tattooing or not, but can still chat with you either way. If you feel you'd rather have a more private, one-on-one discussion, you can call or email and let us know you're more comfortable with private consultation and would prefer to schedule a time. We'll just need your name and phone number to schedule.
At the consultation, bring anything with you that can help us see and understand exactly what you want to have done (as far as reference material, photos, etc). Consultations are free, so this is the good time to ask questions and work out some of the details.
For tattoo appointments, we need you to come into the shop and talk with us about what you want to do first. This will give us a chance to make sure that your tattoo will come out as good as possible by giving us an idea of what, where, how big, colors, etc and giving us some time to draw it up before your appointment time, as well as give you some suggestions to think about dealing with the size, placement, and pricing, so you can be ready and make the right decisions.
Plus, with tattoo appointments, we do ask for a minimum of a $100 deposit for tattoos booked for under 4 hours and a minimum of $200 deposit for 4 or more hour appointments to hold your appointment time. If you live a long distance from Charlotte and the artist already has all the information he needs, you can place your deposit here on our website. Your deposit is NOT an extra charge, it does go towards the price of the tattoo. It's just to secure your spot and not have our artists waiting around for someone who may not show up.
Does it hurt?
The amount of pain depends on several factors, i.e. size and location of the tattoo, state of mind (if you dwell on the pain, it will hurt). If you relax and stay calm, your body can adjust the pain to only an annoyance. There are many variances in the feeling all over the body. The "bony parts" are not always more painful than the "fatty parts." My advice, don't decide on the location based on pain, after it's all over with you'll see it probably wasn't that bad, and you'll only regret not putting the tattoo where you originally wanted.
What about safety and sterility?
Every needle is ALWAYS brand new, sterilized, and individually sealed for the best possible protection. The supplies used (such as razors, cups, and ink caps) are disposable. Any remaining items are wrapped in disposable plastic. Everything we do for sterility is for your protection as well as ours, so we don't take chances. All artists are each inspected by the Mecklenburg County Health Department annually and our autoclave is tested every month to confirm sterility.
