Appointment Request FAQ

Which artist is best for me? 

We are proud to have some of the best tattooers around who are able to do a wide range of styles. If you're unsure of who to choose, select "Any Artist" and we will pick the artist best suited to your needs.

What do I need to include in my tattoo description?
Give us as much information as you can about the tattoo. The size, location, color, and style are all good starting points. Photos of references give us a better idea of your ideas so send those our way as well. Photos of the location of the tattoo are awesome, especially if we are working on a coverup/addition. 

If you have any reference photos, send them to: (if your artist is in West Monroe) or (if your artist is in Monroe).

Why do you need to know my budget?

Here at Cold Desert, we pride ourselves in creating the perfect tattoo for YOU! Knowing your approximate budget allows us to plan artwork that perfectly fits you AND your pocketbook! 


I submitted my appointment request, what next? 

Within 7 days of our next business day,  we will contact you to help set up your appointment. At this time, we will ask you any necessary information and get a better idea of what you're wanting to get and determine if you need a consultation or if you can proceed directly to making an appointment. If you haven't already, you will place your deposit to secure your appointment. (If we recommend a consultation first, no deposit will be necessary at this time.) Appointments are not guaranteed until the deposit is received.  

 All consults are free and tattoo appointments are usually scheduled at the end of the consult.  Consults usually take around 30-45 minutes and are used to discuss style, size, placement, budget, design ideas, and any other concerns the client may have. 

The More YOU Know!

We have a high volume of emails come through, and unfortunately sometimes someone slips through the cracks or it takes us longer than expected to get in touch! If you haven't been contacted in regards to your inquiry within 7 days, or if you are hoping to get tattooed within 7 days of today's date, please give us a call to speak to us in person ( 318-654-7640 west monroe / 318-512-4317 monroe)
