Katy Thompkins

I was born in Boston and raised in Maine, but have always had so much love for the state of Massachusetts. So, I moved back 10 years ago and have been a Worcester resident ever since. I have always been intrigued by body art and modifications, and having the privilege of being a Licensed Piercer for the past 4 years has only solidified those feelings, especially having the opportunity to do it within a community I love so much. 

I’ve gotten to meet and work with so many talented people, both piercers and tattoo artists, and have so many people who started as clients that are now great friends. 

My #1 priority is making sure clients leave happy, with a piercing that makes them feel beautiful and excited. I also make absolutely certain that they leave informed; I want them to be confident in the healing process and aftercare procedures, to know what their jewelry is made out of, and most importantly, that if they ever have any questions or concerns to never hesitate to contact me for any help or advice. That’s my job!

*ALL DEPOSITS ARE NON-REFUNDABLE*

-All appointments MUST be scheduled with a deposit. No artist will draw any tattoo designs without a deposit.

-All clients have a 48 reschedule time frame. You must call within a 48 hour timeframe from your appointment in order to keep your deposit. Failure to call in a timely manner will result in loss of your deposit.

-DO NOT consume drugs, alcohol, or blood thinners within 24 hours of your appointment slot. If you show up under the influence or have consumed any drugs or alcohol within the past 24 hours, you will lose your deposit and will be held responsible to pay for the entire session that your tattoo was scheduled.

-Deposits and appointment slots can not be transferred to friends, spouses, etc…

-If you change your mind/ideas/artwork for your appointment, the reference photos must be sent and approved a week prior to your appointment. If you change your mind last minute and the artist is not able to redraw your design in time, you will lose your deposit.

-All artwork/ reference photos must be sent at least a week prior to the scheduled appointment date. (Artist emails can be found listed later in this section). Please send emails with your name, appointment date and tattoo designs.

-Your tattoo must take up the entire time slot you are scheduled for.

 *I.E: If you change your mind to a smaller tattoo than the original tattoo you were scheduled 6 hours for, and the new tattoo only takes 2 hours, you will lose your deposit and have to pay for the new tattoo. * Times cannot be transferred to friends, family, spouses, etc…

-Due to Covid restrictions, we ask that only the client who is scheduled the appointment comes into the shop. All other friends, children, spouses will not be allowed in the waiting area.

-Due to Covid restrictions, all clients MUST wear a mask the entire time of their visit, both in the waiting room and in the artists’ rooms.

-All Clients must have a valid ID. Minors receiving piercings must have their parent or legal guardian with proper documentation (birth certificate, guardianship papers etc..) with parent’s valid ID.

BEFORE YOUR APPOINTMENT:

Make sure your designs are sent and approved by your artist at least 1 WEEK prior to your scheduled appointment! If you have any questions, please call the shop or email your artist!

-Eat prior to your appointment! Having higher levels of blood sugar during your tattoo/piercing will help with your comfort levels and reduce pain while getting your services done. It also helps with not getting light headed or passing out!

-DO NOT consume alcohol, drugs or blood thinners within 24 hours of getting your tattoo or piercing. These will cause your tattoo to bleed the ink out and make getting the tattoo extremely hard to pack ink in.
