- I was told I need laser treatments on my tattoo before it can be covered. Where do I go?
You're not alone, even we have some bad tattoos that just can't be covered without laser treatments. We personally use and highly recommend you visit Dr. Evan Zelinger, D.O. at Abington Aesthetic & Laser for laser tattoo removal. They have two offices, one located in center city Philadelphia just minutes from Art Machine Productions. You can visit their website www.abingtonaesthetic.com for more information.
- I’m a tattoo artist and I want to do a guest spot at Art Machine. Pick me.
We're flattered that you like us enough that you'd like to bring your talents into our studio!
Here's the second part of something that isn't that easy for us to say, so we'll just get right to it..
Unless we've come to you to do a guest spot, or you've been referred by one of our artists or super extra trustworthy clients, we're going to have to respectfully decline. Art Machine hosts guest artists from time to time; however, we have strict criteria for any artist who tattoos in our studio. Factors such as experience and an established reputation in the tattoo industry, sufficient clientele in the Philadelphia and surrounding areas as well as client testimonials, and an impeccable portfolio of tattoo work are just a few of the criteria we look into when hosting our guest artists. We are a high end custom tattoo studio and work mostly based on appointment only. We do handle walk ins from time to time, but for the most part our artists rely solely on their experience and established clientele. Listen, we're not trying to offend anyone here, but this is a sensitive subject to address without hurting anyone's feelings. Basically, this is the gist: If we'd like you to do a guest spot, we will reach out to you.
- How do I make an appointment?
If you know which artist you'd like to schedule your tattoo with, contact them directly and they will schedule you. If you are unsure which artist you'd like to work with, contact us and we'll help set you up. All appointments require a $100 deposit. No exceptions.
- How much do you charge per hour?
Our rate varies according to which artist you choose to work with. Some charge hourly, while others charge per session/piece. Contact one of our artists directly, or send us a message for more details.
- Does Art Machine Productions accept walk-in appointments?
Yes we do! We're open Monday - Saturday from 12 p.m. until 10 p.m.
