Resident artist

Jocelyn has a love for combining multiple varieties and genres of creativity, and seeks to design new and interesting art. With both formal and informal training in Fine Art, a BA in Photography and extensive training in Graphic Design from Sacramento State University, Jocelyn entered into the tattoo industry with a large breadth of creative knowledge. She combines tactile drawing, painting and photography with computer aided design to produce tattoo designs for her clients. Through this process, an interesting mix of organic and graphic inspired designs has emerged. Jocelyn hopes to create a unique and creatively cohesive voice to her work as time progresses.

Friday-Tuesday

Resident artist

As a California native, Shrek has been tattooing since 2008. He's an incredibly talented and motivated artist that loves doing color tattoos of any kind and also presents a strong background in Black & Grey. Always striving to be better, Shrek is going to bring up any ideas he has if it can make the tattoo more original.

Pricing Tattoos

Tattoo pricing is dependent on many variables, ie. size, difficulty, time involved, etc.  Smaller tattoos that can be completed in one sitting are generally priced by the piece, not by time.  Larger, more extensive work, is usually priced hourly at a rate of $125 - $150 per hour, depending on the artist doing your tattoo.  We can usually give you a fair estimate in advance with a consultation, and are always willing to take your budget into consideration.  Prices are subject to change without notice.

Healing Tattoos

Your artist will go over general healing techniques with you at the conclusion of your tattoo.  Every artist's approach will tend to be a little different, as he or she can only tell you what has worked best for their clients in the past.  It is prudent that you only take the advice of your artist when it comes to healing your tattoo.  Old Republic Tattoo Company has over 20 years experience in the tattoo industry, and we have seen most issues that could arise during the healing process. Before taking the advice of your friends and family on how to heal your tattoo, please call the shop.  We will be happy to answer any questions you have, and help guide you in the right direction should the need arise.

Click on the link below for an overall guide to some of the basic do's and don'ts when it comes to healing your tattoo.  We urge you take healing your tattoo very seriously, as it's going to be with you for life... How it will look forever depends greatly on how you take care of it during the first few weeks.

PAYMENT

  • CASH IS ALWAYS PREFERRED BUT SOME ARTISTS DO ACCEPT BOTH CREDIT/DEBIT CARDS AND PAYPAL (PLEASE CHECK WITH YOUR ARTIST BEFORE YOUR APPT TO ENSURE YOU USE THE PROPER PAYMENT METHOD).

  • DEPOSITS ARE REQUIRED TO SET ALL APPOINTMENTS AND ARE NON-REFUNDABLE, NON-TRANSFERABLE, AND APPLIED TO THE LAST SESSION WHEN THE TATTOO IS COMPLETED.

  • LET YOUR ARTIST KNOW IF THERE IS A BUDGET THAT YOU NEED TO STAY WITHIN FOR THE TATTOO OR THE SESSION. DISCUSSING THIS DURING YOUR CONSULTATION IS RECOMMENDED.

BOOKING

  • WE DO TAKE WALK-IN APPOINTMENTS; HOWEVER, MOST OF OUR ARTISTS HAVE CLIENTELE THAT KEEP THEM BOOKED OUT FOR AT LEAST ONE TATTOO PER DAY. CALL AHEAD EARLIER IN THE DAY TO SEE IF THERE IS AVAILABILITY.

  • WE REQUIRE A 48 HOUR NOTICE TO CANCEL OR RESCHEDULE AN APPOINTMENT. NOT DOING SO WILL RESULT IN FORFEIT OF YOUR DEPOSIT.

  • WE ABSOLUTELY DO NOT TATTOO ANYONE UNDER THE AGE OF 18! EVEN WITH PARENTAL CONSENT, IT IS C.A. STATE LAW. WE ALSO WILL NOT TATTOO ANYONE WITHOUT PROPER IDENTIFICATION.

 

CONDUCT

  • A TATTOO SHOP IS NOT THE PLACE FOR CHILDREN. THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NO REASON YOUR KIDS SHOULD BE WITH YOU AT THE TIME OF YOUR APPT. PLEASE MAKE ARRANGEMENTS FOR CHILDREN AHEAD OF TIME.

  • WE ASK THAT YOU ONLY BRING ONE FRIEND/FAMILY MEMBER TO BE WITH YOU WHILE YOU'RE BEING TATTOOED. PLEASE DO NOT BRING ADDITIONAL PEOPLE AS IT BECOMES VERY DISTRACTING TO OTHER CLIENTS AND THE WORKING ARTISTS... THEY WILL BE ASKED TO LEAVE.

 

 

ADVICE

  • BE SURE TO EAT AND DRINK PLENTY OF WATER BEFORE YOUR TATTOO APPOINTMENT. CUSTOMERS UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF DRUGS OR ALCOHOL WILL BE ASKED TO LEAVE.

  • PLEASE BE SURE YOU WEAR THE PROPER ATTIRE FOR YOUR APPOINTMENT, BASED ON THE LOCATION OF THE TATTOO.

  • WE CURRENTLY DO NOT OFFER PIERCINGS; ONLY CUSTOM TATTOOS. HOWEVER, WE WOULD BE MORE THAN HAPPY TO RECOMMEND A COUPLE FANTASTIC PLACES THAT DO OFFER PIERCINGS.
