These are on a walk-in only basis and depends on if there is any artist availability. If you are planning on coming down, give us a ring first to see if there’s any space, or chance popping in to see if an artist is free.
Let the tattoo gods decide your fate, be daring, and turn the dial and face your trial! £50 per turn! Under any circumstances there will be NO REFUNDS!
Did we mention there’s also FREE STUFF in there? A tattoo voucher and tshirts for some lucky winners! You of course get another free roll to get your tattoo too 😉
“Do we have a choice of Artist?” – There will not be a choice of artist as it will be whoever is free at the time.
“Who created the Designs?”– All the designs have been created by our resident artists Ben, Gerry, Mat & Leigh. They are approximately business card sized and will be done either colour or blackwork or black & grey depending on artist. If you ask nicely they may take your preference into consideration 😉
“How do I Book in?” – There’s no need to book, as this is walk in only. However, as the artists do have appointments which are priority, the best thing to do to try the gumball machine is give us a ring on the day to see if anyone has space to be able to accommodate you, or you can pop into the studio to see if there’s space.
“I heard there were Prizes?” – There are indeed! We have added a few extra prizes in the machine such as a tattoo voucher and a few tshirts to be won! If you get one of these on your go, have no fear! You will get another free turn to choose your tattoo, you lucky devil you!
“Can we see Previews of what’s in there?” – No, there is no way to see previews of what may or may not be in the machine! Defeats the purpose of it being a mystery! However, you can see what has already been chosen and given a home by checking out our social media accounts such as Instagram or our specially dedicated album on facebook which you can view here.
“I want a Refund!” – If you choose to take on the Beavertron (aka Gumball machine) then once you hand over your £50 there is NO REFUNDS. The whole point of this is to Get what you get, so under no circumstances will we issue a refund, whether you back out, or don’t like the design, or any excuse you have. You are signing up for this, those are the risks and those are the rules! If you’re a wuss, don’t play!
“I heard you give to Charity?” – If you pay £50 to play the Gumball Machine and you hate the chosen tattoo, you of course can refuse to have it tattooed. However, you will not get a refund or another try unless you pay for another turn. Instead, your money will be forfeit and goes directly to our chosen charity The Padley Group to help homeless and struggling people in our local community. You can find out more about The Padley Group here. We also have a charity box for you to give spare change to The Padley Group, should you wish to! Every donation, big or small, will help!
