Nate Kraus aka N3Tattoos


Hey! Thanks for your interest in getting a tattoo from me! Here's some things to cover before continuing: All appointments are approved upon sending a deposit. If you already have a deposit with me, choose "Continuation" in the options and you will hold your rate for up to 1 year* to avoid being charged more in the future. All appointments are booked at 1pm (unless otherwise communicated). Rates:  1. I charge $160/hr* (for tattooing only, I dont charge for design or breaks) *Rate will increase every 3-6 months. Those that continue to come back within 3 months will lock in their rate so it'll never increase. 2. There's a 2 hour minimum (unless stated otherwise). 3. There is a $100 (NON refundable) deposit* to book an appointment. Sent through here or venmo. My Venmo is @N3Tattoos *Continuation projects may roll deposits to keep a date in the schedule. *Larger projects pay require a larger deposit. *The deposit will only be used on the last session to insure the completion of the tattoo. -Do I need to book a consultation before the tattoo? In-person consultations aren’t always required. Projects that may require a consultation: 1. Working closely around an existing tattoo or covering other tattoos. 2. A large area to base off flow of the body etc. Cancelations/Rescheduling: If an appt needs to be rescheduled by a client and ample notice is given (72 hours) then they will be moved to the next available spot, which is usually within 2 weeks. If an appt needs to be rescheduled by me then I generally try to book it as close to the original date as possible. Artwork/Design:  Most projects are completed the night before the appointment. Occasionally freehand work is what works best for certain things. I try to give everyone something original, and design within my own style for the best results. If any changes need to be made to the finished design, they usually can be made the day of the appointment, if projects require too many changes, we will reschedule once. The best results come from good communication and trust.   What’s next? Once the deposit is sent you can book a date and time. More FAQ are on or you can text 517-974-0434 Where will we be? Ministry Ink Located in The Brew Cafe 610 N Creyts Rd Lansing, Michigan *Our Covid restrictions have been lifted, so we are no longer requiring a mask. *We also now allow guests (2 max) at the new studio, which also has a Cafe downstairs that's open till 4pm.
