Black Orchid is a custom tattoo studio established in 2004.
We operate our shop with traditional tattoo ethics.
Our artists are experienced, professional and specialize in all styles of tattooing.


While walk-ins are welcome, appointments are preferred. A majority of our tattoos are by appointment to allow your artist to custom draw your design, however if you are planning to walk in we recommend calling ahead to assure availability.

To schedule an appointment, call the studio or stop by. All appointments require a $50 deposit per hour reserved. Deposits can be made with cash, Master, Visa, AMEX or Discover. This guarantees your time and will be deducted from the final price of your tattoo. Our artists do not begin any drawings without a deposit.


All deposits are final. A 48 hours notice must be given for a cancellation. Cancellations and reschedules must be done by phone or in person. If you need to reschedule, your deposit will be applied to appointments rescheduled within 30 days.


Large pieces and cover-ups will require a consultation. All consults are free and need to be done in person. Consultations can be scheduled with the artist of your choice or you may stop by the studio any day between 12 and 6pm. If you are from out of town and cannot come in, please call and speak with our receptionist.


Prices will not be given over the phone or e-mail. There are many variables in pricing a tattoo. For a quote, stop by the shop and our artists will be happy to give you an estimate in person. Our pricing is competitive with other quality studios, while we are not the most expensive, we are also not the least. If you have a budget, your artist will work with you accordingly.


We accept Cash, Debit, Visa, Mastercard, AMEX, and Discover

The Day of Your Tattoo

It is important to come to your appointment prepared. This will increase your comfort and ability to sit. The day of your appointment take these points into consideration:

  • Eat a complete meal at least 2 hours prior. We do not allow food in the studio, so you will not be able to eat while you are here.
  • Children are not allowed in the studio. It is a sterile adult environment and we are not equipped to accommodate children.
  • Stay out of the sun in days prior to your appointment.
  • No alcohol is permitted in the studio.
  • Be well rested.
  • We invite you to bring a friend along, but keep in mind your artist is working and it is not a party.


  • Remove bandage in 1-2 hours.
  • Wash twice daily with antibacterial soap and pat dry.
  • Apply A&D ointment or Aquaphor in a thin layer 2-3 times daily.
  • Once tattoo begins to peel or flake, stop using ointment and start applying thin layers of a fragrance free hand lotion
  • Keep out of salt water, sun, and chlorine for 2 weeks
  • Do not pick or scratch tattoo
