Absolutely! We do our best to accommodate everyone but since we are by appointment, we recommend calling ahead(call-in) to see what our availability is that day.

To book an appointment we recommend filling out a consultation form with one of our artists.


However, if you are in the area and would like a consultation or to get tattooed, please call us directly at 737-222-5355.

It depends on availability and what you are looking to get.


Typically, our artists prefer not to book more than three months in advance, but all have varying schedules. Call-ins are always accepted.

Tattoo Appointments

Great Question! We have a whole page dedicated to that very thing. I Need To Prepare For My Tattoo.


If you have something specific that you think isn't covered after going through that page, please don't hesitate to e-mail or call us at 737-222-5355.


If you need to re-schedule we ask that you give us at least 48 hours notice in advance of your appointment.


If you need to cancel, barring any emergency, should you no-show or cancel within 48 hours prior to your appointment you will forfeit your deposit.

When you arrive at the studio you will be greeted by one of our staff.


Please be sure to bring a valid ID (drivers license, passport, etc) that has your birth-date and photo proving your identity.

Appointments depend on a few factors: sizing, the area getting tattooed, and even how a client sits.


During the consultation we typically provide an estimate for time, but that will fluctuate based on how the session or sessions themselves go.

You can bring one friend along with you at the time of the appointment.


However, please be aware that if at any point it develops into a distraction, we will ask that they wait in our seating area. It is nice to bring support, but sometimes folks become much more animated than they realize when being tattooed.

If we have availability while you are getting tattooed, we would most certainly go over all options with your friend!

Please ask your artist for guidance since there are a lot of variables.

If you are sun-burnt or have any other chemicals on your skin we will not tattoo you.


We aren't willing to compromise your health and healing.

Tattooing feels different for everyone. Some areas can be more uncomfortable as opposed to others.


Example: Clients frequently complain about areas such as the rib cage, stomach, lower back, back of the knee, hands and wrists. On the other hand, some people find these areas to be easy.

Ideally you would like to wear your tattoo as an adornment similar to jewelry.


No matter what, your tattoo should always be for you, however, it is an added perk when it looks like the piece is worn with intent. Talk to your artist to get a longer and more informed answer before making a decision.


YES! Not only do we have vegan friendly ink, it's all we have. Here's some MSDS info for our most popular ink, Eternal, which reflects the quality we use here.


  • Made of natural pigments and deionized water.
  • Free of animal by-products and is vegan.
  • Is not tested on animals.
  • Supplied in a medical grade sealed bottle, ensuring its longevity before and after opening.
  • Pigments are regularly evaluated for testing.
  • Cooperates with all regulations.

We aren’t actively looking, but we’re always open to the right person.

We have a shop dog, Willie, who's the only animal we allow in the shop.


Due to health and safety concerns, we ask that no other animals enter the studio since we can't vouch for them. We understand that client’s have different comfort levels, allergies, and other concerns. With that in mind, please let us know if you have an issue with dogs and we'll make accommodations for your visit.


All that said we love animals, so cute pictures are always encouraged!

No. A person getting a tattoo must be at least 18 years of age. Section 146.012 of the Texas Health and Safety Code states a tattoo artist cannot tattoo any person under 18 years old, or any person suspected of being under the influence of alcohol or drugs.


Even with a parent signature, it is against the law. We reserve the right to deny service to any person or persons.

No. Due to health & safety concerns plus the privacy of our clientele, a  tattoo shop is not an environment for anyone under the age of 18.


Much like pets, we love children, yet because of that fact we can't in good conscience allow them in a tattoo environment.

Sorry, we speak very little Spanish. Please bring a translator if you think you will have problems.


Lo siento, hablamos muy poco de español. Por favor traiga un traductor si cree que tendrá problemas.

Yes. We have a slight step leading into the shop, but we have a step ramp available if needed.


We are also more than happy to accommodate or help you should you require assistance.

Nope, No, No, and N-N-No.


We list the parts of the body we tattoo on our pricing chart.

That's a longer answer, go get some popcorn and read as much as you'd like here, Shop Policies


In addition to a full nights rest and a proper meal before tattooing, we urge clients to shower and wash prior to being tattooed.


The reasons for this are:

  • This decreases the chance of irritation and infection.
  • We aim for a pleasant experience for you and the artist.

Heal time varies from person to person, however we recommend avoiding sun, saunas, and beaches the first 3 weeks of healing.


You are responsible for your own healing, however we will provide you with all of the correct information, and are available at any time should you have any questions.


Please do not hesitate to ask if you have a question you think wasn't covered

e-mail: or call us at 737-222-5355.


While we can't quote you a price over the phone or e-mail, we do have a tool to help with tattoo pricing that can help establish a budget, our Tattoo Pricing Tool.

All consultations are 100%, hands down, without a doubt, FREE!

If you were tattooed at Rose and Crown Tattoos we offer FREE touch ups within the six months from when you were tattooed.


We have an entire page dedicated to the topic, New Tattoo Care.


If you would like us to rework a tattoo that was done at another studio, we recommend setting up a consultation with one of our artists so we can look over the project with you and discuss all details.


We have a page dedicated to that topic too, Old Tattoo Care.

All pricing is determined by the size, placement, and detail.

We price according to rates that are industry standard for the quality and service we provide. The studio’s minimum is $150 and pricing is hourly if multi-session or by the piece for some single sessions (artist's discretion).

Also please see our Tattoo Pricing Tool for more info.

Tipping is not required but greatly appreciated.


Think of it like going out to eat at your favorite restaurant. You leave a percentage of your bill to show your gratitude for the level of service provided.
