At LeRouX, our artists manage their own schedules. We recommend contacting them directly via email but we will be happy to assist you in getting in contact with them or the artist with the soonest availability.
How far in advance should I book an appointment?
Our artists' schedules vary but we typically recommend getting in touch with the artist at minimum two weeks ahead of time. Please note that larger or more intricate projects may require more notice as some of our artists book out months in advance.
What style do your artists specialize in?
LeRouX artists specialize in a variety of styles, ranging from black/grey, traditional, Neo-traditional, watercolor, new school, realism, and more. Please check out our artists' individual portfolios to view their stylistic specialties. Our artists also perform cover-ups for existing body art, scars, and other corrective techniques.
Do you require deposits?
Why do you require deposits?
A deposit covers the time taken by an artist to complete the design for the tattoo, along with some basic fees for materials needed to complete the piece. This fee is non-refundable and is calculated by factoring in the time and resources required for your piece.
Should I leave a tip for the artist?
Yes, tipping is encouraged. We believe that 20 percent is the typical amount to tip — just like at a restaurant or a hair salon. However, consider this number a baseline, as some tattoos require more or less work than others.
Before My Appointment...
How should I prepare for my session?
Get plenty of rest the night before, make sure you are well hydrated (and bring something non-alcoholic to drink with you) and eat something substantial at least two hours beforehand. Also remember to charge your phone, bring any headphones/listening devices/books/etc.
What should I wear for my appointment?
The appropriate clothing will depend on the area being tattooed. Basic rules are to allow the artist ample access to the area being tattooed, wear comfortable clothing (no need to be fashionable). We also recommend bringing a sweater or pullover garment in case you get cold or need more pillow support.
