At ADEPT we offer only the best talent with state of the art equipment and ink, tattooing for the future. All of our work will last and still look great for years to come. We achieve this through thorough training and experience.
We specialize in custom artwork, drawn by our talented artists to fit your unique design needs. Call our shop to book a consultation with the artist of your choice. A consultation appointment is a free service offered by us to the client so they can brainstorm with their artist. This is a chance for the client to give the artist their idea and bring any reference images, and for the artist to figure out what will look good and work with the placement of the piece on the body.
For piercings, we take walk-ins. APPOINTMENTS ARE ONLY NECESSARY FOR PRIVATE OR CUSTOM PIERCINGS.
Piercing in Bedford is by walk-ins Monday, thursday, Friday and Saturday.
Piercing AVAILABLE everyday at quinpool
We use barrier control- this means everything we may come in contact with during the tattoo and piercing process is covered. We have a separate sterilization area specifically designed for the least amount of cross contamination possible. We will gladly guide you through our process because we feel that our clients should know – so don’t be afraid to ask.
Our goal is to make this process as safe and comfortable as possible, for both us and our clients.
Our sterilizer is biologically tested by an outside lab monthly. An indicator strip is dated and put into each cycle, this ensures that the autoclave is working properly and safely. Results are posted at the front of the shop. ALL NEEDLES ARE BRAND NEW.
