Receiving a tattoo can be a painful process. It requires the application of pigment under the first epidermal layer of the skin. The larger the tattoo the longer it will take to do, so small tattoos hurt less than large ones! But remember, people wouldn't get a second tattoo if the first one hurt that bad.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST TO GET A TATTOO?
The cost varies on the size of your tattoo, the complexity, and where you put it on your body.
We have no minimum and no hourly rates. Prices vary according to size, details and placement. We admit WE ARE NOT THE CHEAPEST and in life, you get what you pay for. You only have one chance to get one tattoo on that one spot on your body.

CAN I BRING MY OWN DESIGN?
Just about any design you can think of can be made into a beautiful Aasylum tattoo. You are more than welcome to bring in your own design.
If you already know what you want, great, it is very simple to convey your idea to our artists. The easiest way is with a picture. It doesn't matter what the picture is on (keychain, t-shirt, book, drawing...etc.). Even if you can't draw, our artists still love to do the custom work. Just describe it well or even bring in a stick drawing. We can turn it into your dream tattoo on paper right before your eyes!
If you have any questions about your tattoo or the healing process, please call or e-mail. (409) 770- 0150
