During the week there will sometimes be little to no wait time for walk-ins. On the weekends, we tend to fill up with appointments throughout the day, so if you plan on coming by and walking in on a friday, saturday or sunday and want to bring your friends, then your best bet is to stop in ahead of time or earlier on that day, and book your appointments, so you don’t have to wait as long when you come back in.

As with any visit, make sure you have appropriate ID with you. No exceptions! WE HAVE TO ID OUR OWN PARENTS!



Keep in mind that we book appointments on a first come, first serve basis. Due to our high volume of frequent clients and walk-ins, there is a chance that when you walk in, there may be a wait.

We ask a $20.00 deposit fee to book an appointment for most tattoos which goes towards the cost of your tattoo and will be used to hold a spot for you. We can only book new client appointments in person (if you live far away from any listed shop and need assistance, we will be happy to work with each person individually.)

Large Format Appointments / Custom Work

If you are booking an appointment for a larger scale piece, which will require alot of drawing time, the deposit may be larger than $20.

Tattoo Parties

We do not participate or condone tattoo parties outside a licensed studio. If you would like to arrange a block of time for all your friends to get tattooed, then please bring your party to No Ka Oi Tiki Tattoo. You MUST book in advance. Let us know how many are getting tattooed and extra artists will be on staff to accomodate your party. A deposit for time reserved will be required. Please contact us for more information at 267-321-0357.
