Jaded Angel Tattoo Touch Up Policy


This is the official touch up policy of Skin Ticket Tattoo. Please ask your artist if you have any questions, prior to being tattooed.

Even the best artist will occasionally have what is called a “holiday”. This is a light spot in the tattoo that was either missed, hit too lightly, or just didn’t take. Sometimes the area has been worked for a long period of time and just won’t take ink anymore. On all black designs, like kanji or tribal, it is difficult on some skin to get the black solid without overworking the area.

More often than not, the difficulty lies with improper aftercare. Poor cleaning, excessive exposure to the sun or tanning beds, chlorine, improper after care products, picking, scratching, wearing tight clothing (or shoes on foot tattoos), cleaning the tattoo with anything other than antibacterial soap and warm water, soaking the tattoo in baths or pools can all cause the tattoo to scab excessively, pit or fade.

Touch ups are only free when it is apparent that the artist had a “holiday”. It is the artist’s decision whether a touch up will be free or not. If you disagree with the artist ask them to explain. If it can not be resolved there, ask to speak with the shop manager. The shop managers decision is final.

If the artist who initially did your tattoo is no longer at the shop, ask to speak with the shop manager. You may be required to pay the shop minimum (or more), to have another artist touch it up.

Prior to being touched up, a tattoo must be healed. There should be no shininess, scabbing, roughness or white spots (negative bacteria). We recommend 30 days prior to re-tattooing an area. We will not offer free touch ups on any tattoo that was done less than 30 days before or longer than 90 days after.

Touch ups, when done for free, are only on the artists regularly scheduled days and never on Friday, Saturday or Sunday.
