Piercings are walk-in only. For Tattoos please call the shop [612-379-4455] to see if we have any availability that day. Walk-Ins are first-come-first-serve. The only way to guarantee time is to book an appointment.
Yes! For both piercings and tattoos we require a valid government issued photo ID. If your ID is expired, clipped, or punched please bring your yellow-papers with you. Passports, State/Military/Tribal ID, and Drivers licenses are all acceptable.
In the state of MN it is illegal to tattoo anyone under the age of 18. For Insurance purposes, at Steady we begin piercings at 14 for earlobe, helix, or rook piercings. At 16 we pierce navel, eyebrow, septum, and Industrial. Minors must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Both the minor and the guardian must bring a government issued photo ID. Both the last name and the addresses must match. If they do not match you must also bring along proof of guardianship. We do not perform genital, nipple, micro/subdermal, or tongue piercings on minors.
Call the shop or stop in. All appointments require a $50 non-refundable deposit that is included in the total cost of your tattoo.
Every tattoo is priced according to size, location, and complexity. Feel free to call the shop [612 379 4455] to set up a consultation.
Deposits are only refundable if you cancel or reschedule 24 hours in advance of your appointment. DO NOT EMAIL THE SHOP TO CANCEL AN APPOINTMENT! If you need to reschedule please call us and we will transfer your deposit to the new appointment date.
Consultations are the best way for the client and the artist to collaborate on the design for your tattoo. Think of it as a chance for you to meet one on one with the artist before making a commitment. This is the best way to put ideas on the table and get advice on how to bring your vision to life!
Bring any images and ideas you have about what you want your tattoo to look like. The artist will take these ideas and use them as references to create an original, unique piece for you!
We will not pierce with jewelry that comes from outside the shop as we cannot guarantee the quality of metal.
The majority of our jewelry is hypo-allergenic surgical steel. We do have a small supply of white/yellow/rose gold pieces. For stretched piercings we carry pyrex, stainless steel, and organic options. We also have catalogs from which we can order for you.
For piercings we provide all the aftercare (salt and soap) you will need, as well as instructions on how to care for your piercing. For tattoos the artist will walk you through caring for your new tattoo.
