Why should I choose Broken Crow over other shops in the area?


Our artists are dedicated to providing you with the absolute best tattoo and experience. This means we will listen to your ideas and help you navigate the path to a great tattoo by offering our professional experience as advice. It also means we hold ourselves to the highest standards regarding your health and safety.


Do I need an appointment?


We do our best to accommodate anyone who wants a tattoo so walk ins are more than welcome but for larger work, an appointment is preferred. An appointment will provide your artist with enough time to design the best possible product for you and will usually give you the opportunity to interact with them during your consultation.


Does getting a tattoo hurt?


Short answer, yes. After all we are inserting pigment into your skin with needles. Although it is painful it is not excruciating by any means and most people liken it to a cat scratch or bee sting.


Is it safe to get a tattoo?


At Broken Crow we hold ourselves to the strictest sanitary practices and we use only disposable equipment. This means everything touching your skin will only have been used on you and then disposed of. After each procedure all stations are sanitized with the best medical grade products available.


How much does a tattoo cost?


The cost of a tattoo is determined by many factors including but not limited to size, placement, detail and if it's black and grey or color. Smaller pieces will usually be given a flat rate quote before the tattoo is made. Larger pieces will most likely be determined by an hourly rate but ultimately it’s up to each individual artist.


Do you tattoo minors?


No. The State of Maine requires anyone being tattooed to be over the age of 18.


How can I prepare for a tattoo?


A good nights sleep and eating right are the best things to do in order to prepare. Coming to your appointment clean and well hydrated are great things as well. If you are sick in the days leading up to your appointment you should strongly consider rescheduling the appointment to a later date when you are healthier. Your tattoo won't be as painful, will heal better, and you’ll help us maintain a sanitary environment for everyone. We’ll be more than happy to work with you in order to reschedule your appointment.


How do I take care of my new tattoo?


Each artist may have slightly different instructions on how to care for your new tattoo but here's what our shop offers as general aftercare.
