Frequently Asked Questions
This is a general FAQ for our collective studio. For information about individual artists, please check out our artists' individual websites for their personalized FAQs!
Do you take walk-ins?
Constellation Tattoo Collective is a private, by-appointment-only tattoo studio; we do not take walk-ins, but book our appointments individually and in advance. You can find out about our individual artists' booking periods by following them on instagram.
Where are you located?
Our studio is located at 6635 N. Baltimore Ave, Suite 292, Portland, OR. It's located within the Cathedral Park Place complex in the St. John's neighborhood of north Portland, right next to the St. John's Bridge and Cathedral Park.
What is the best way to get to your studio?
If you are driving, you can either park just outside, or let yourself in through the parking garage (in which you are also welcome to park). If you are taking the bus, the nearest stop is N. Lombard & Baltimore. The best way to get inside is through the parking garage (you'll know you're in the right place because there are huge Columbia Sportswear adverts hanging in the parking garage- follow the arrow pointing toward "Yukon"!). After entering through the parking garage door, you will see double doors on your left that open to a (usually) empty gallery space. Walk straight back, veering left toward the bathroom, and you'll see the tattoo studio through two interior windows on your left. You can let yourself in!
What if the parking garage door is closed?
This happens sometimes on weekends! You could either text/call your artist or shoot them an email, or wait for them to open the garage door. Another option is to enter via the main entrance down the hill or through the Occidental Brewery Restaurant, but this can be a bit of a labyrinth if you have never visited us before! Look for maps (like the one below) and follow signs for suite 292.
Do you host guest artists?
Yes! We love having guest artists, and especially like to hold space for POC, queer, trans, and non-binary artists. Please contact us using our contact form or email firstname.lastname@example.org !
What are your rates?
Each of the artists at our shop have a different hourly rate, or price their work individually dependent upon scale, level of detail, and placement. Consult your individual artist's website and individual FAQ/booking information to find out more about their pricing.
Do your artists offer any sliding scale payment options?
Some of our artists offer sliding scale or percentage-based discounts as an option for clients who self-identify as POC or trans, or on disability/health related circumstances. Inquire about sliding scale payment options during your consultation, mostly be upfront about the budget that you have and we will work with you. Your artist will not make assumptions or denials of your race, gender, or circumstance; this is why we ask that you self-identify if you choose to pay using a sliding scale!
