Jersey Sure Lines Tattoo

Custom Work / Drama Free


Over the years we have noticed some questions are more common than others. These are the questions we get most. If you have a question, please check below, we may have already answered it.

How much does a tattoo cost?

Tattoo prices vary greatly depending on the size, location, and amount of detail. Without seeing what it is we are doing there is no way for us to be able to give you an accurate quote without sitting down and discussing it with an artist. what we can tell you is that our shop minimum is $60.

How old do I have to be to get tattooed/ Can my parent sign for me?

Jersey Sure Lines Tattoo’s policy is that we will not tattoo anyone under the age of 18 years old and you must have photo ID to prove it. The legal age restriction for tattooing in New Jersey is 16 with parental consent, but we will not tattoo anyone under 18 years old even with parental consent.

How do I take Care of My Tattoo?

Listen to your artist! Not your Brother,Buddy, Mailman, and defiantly NOT your brothers girlfriends sisters best fiends Nephew! Your artist is an expert and knows his style of work. They are invested in healing their work properly so that the resulting healed tattoo is something that makes you both proud. If you forgot anything you were told you can always check in with your artist or check the aftercare tab on this website. We also have a downloadable version so that you can print it.

Do I Need an Appointment?

We want you to feel free to stop in anytime. however Due to the Pandemic we ask that is you see a few people in the shop, to wait a few minuets before coming in. Currently we are working by appointment only, but you can always call the shop to see if there is an availability. Sometimes we have clients that have to cancel or just don’t show up so it never hurts to call and check. We also try to leave time everyday to take consultations

Can I bring in my own artwork?

We encourage you to bring in your own artwork, references and ideas that our artists can use to draw you a custom tattoo. A custom tattoo is a tattoo designed with you specifically in mind, made to fit your personal tastes as well as your body shape perfectly. We believe your tattoo should be yours and will not tattoo it on anyone else. Our artist may need to rework your personal drawings based on the drawings’ “tattooability”. Custom tattoos require at least a $50 deposit as well as time for the artist to draw. The amount of time necessary to draw your tattoo will depend on the scope of the piece as well as how booked the artist is. Once the artist has completed the original sketch he/she will / may re-work it, if necessary, until you and him are satisfied.

Should I eat before getting tattooed?

It is ideal to eat a healthy portioned meal within four hours of being tattooed. You don’t want to be starving or stuffed. Having stable blood sugar bolsters your immune system and helps the body deal with the fluctuation of endorphins, which are released during the tattoo process. For long tattoo sessions bring some fruit and trail mix. Avoid caffeine, alcohol and aspirin.

Can you fix/cover up an existing tattoo?

Probably. Not every tattoo is an ideal candidate for fixing or covering.  A consult is essential to determine and discuss what imagery is necessary to adequately cover the old work.

Does it Hurt?

Yes. No. Maybe. Pain varies from person to person and from day to day. Most people compare getting a tattoo to the discomfort of scratching a sunburn. Relax, don’t fight it and it will all be over soon… or in a few hours, depending on the size of the tattoo.

Is it safe?

Our tattoo parlor is 100% disposable. Each needle is individually wrapped and opened in front of the client immediately preceding the tattoo procedure.
