Want to get tattooed by Hannah, Scott, Jessi or one of our guest artists? We'd love to hear from you! Below you should find all the information you need, including shop policies and the request form. Please be patient while we get back to you, as we occasionally get large volumes of requests and this can impact our response time - but we will get back to you, promise.
For Your Information
When submitting a tattoo project request, please specify which artist you'd like to work with, and describe in as much detail as you can what you're hoping to do. Let us know where you want to put your new tattoo, whether it's a cover-up piece, and any other details you think would help us to get a clearer idea of what you want. You can also feel free to include URLs to any specific images you might like. Please know that we do receive quite a few requests and we may not be able to reply to you immediately. However, we will respond to your request as soon as possible! No scheduling by phone call please.
Hannah's rate is currently $225/hr with a 3 hour session minimum, Scott and Jessi's rates are each $150/hr. Rates for guest artists vary per artist - ask for details when requesting your appointment. Jessi schedules in two month blocks, one month in advance. To be notified of her next booking, fill out the form and we’ll contact you with more information when her books re-open.
You must be 18 with ID to be tattooed at Curiosity Shop.
All tattoo appointments require a non-refundable deposit of $100 which will be credited towards your tattoo session. Sorry, but all no-shows or cancellations within a 48-hour period will forfeit their deposit.
We respectfully ask that you not bring children or large groups of people with you to the tattoo shop. We want this experience to be focused completely on you and your new artwork! We'd be happy to make suggestions for activities in the area for those clients bringing their families - Pittsburgh offers a lot to explore, and we know you'll all have a great time.
Taxi service in this city, though, is its Achilles heel. When in town, we suggest contacting either Lyft, Uber, or our friends at Tony WilliamsCar Service, at (412) 281-6400 and they'll treat you like royalty, for a fair price.
Also, bicycle rental is available only a few blocks from the shop, with over 500 bikes at 50 stations throughout the city of Pittsburgh. Why not have an adventure while you're here?
Be sure to check our interactive map (located also on the Where page) for suggestions on accommodations, dining, bars and activities for yourself or anyone else who might be traveling with you.
We look forward to meeting you soon!
