Frequently Asked Questions

Where are you located?

Ritchie works out of Watertown, New York at Bare Knuckle Tattoo.

How much does a tattoo cost?

Pricing is determined by the piece, not the hour. Because every tattoo is unique in its own way, the pricing varies from piece to piece. Final price is dependent on size, detail of the design, location on the body where it will be placed. Tattoo sessions start at $100 

Does it hurt?

It depends on the person: for sure the psycho-physical health of the customer is important. We recommend that you eat and are well rested before you come in. Beware of alcohol and drugs before! Alcohol can increase bleeding for up to 24 hours and blood also dilutes our pigments, affecting both the appearance of your tattoo as well as the healing process. Drugs can influence on your psycho-physical health.
Remember to stay calm and cool, you’re in good hands. There’s nothing to stress over—it’s just a tattoo!

How do I book an appointment?

It is important have clear ideas about your tattoo: Ritchie can help you visualize your idea on skin, but he needs a base idea to start from. It is recommended that you stop by the shop to get an accurate consultation. Otherwise, send a detailed email with a your info, subject and size: position marked in a photo and references (photo/drawings) could be a good way for explain your project, please attach it at the mail if you have. This will enable us to process your request quickly and efficiently, and the specifics of your piece and waiting times.
