Terms of Services
For all customized artwork the requested artist will give you a time frame as to how long they estimate it will take to complete, and an estimated price based on details gathered through consultation will also be given. Upon agreeing to the estimates of time and price, a non-refundable deposit (amount specified in the price section) must be left before the drawing process begins. The deposit will be deducted from the final price. You may also choose to specify a request for collaborative artwork of Envy Ink Studio artist. Envy Ink Studios reserves the rights to all the artwork displayed and created by our artists. Time frames are estimates are subject to change. Prices may vary for short notice/rushed services.
Prices of paintings and any other custom artwork do not include shipping & handling fees. Depending on canvas size, it can take up to 72 hours before completed painting is prepped and shipped out. Shipping & Handling prices vary depending on options chosen; standard shipping, express shipping or expedited shipping.
Renditions/portrait styles are highly based on supplied references. High quality references will enable more accurate results.
Our artists here at Envy Ink Studios do their best to create the vision in your mind, but we cannot guarantee we will be able to produce exactly what you'd like. Before products are shipped/emailed (customized tattoo artwork will be digitally transferred to client) out, Envy Ink Studios must have the approval of the client. Reviewing and accepting terms of service are the responsibility of the client and Envy Ink Studios cannot be held responsible for the negligence of reviewing these terms. Upon approval of commissioned artwork, the remainder of the cost of service must be paid.
Tattoos (Body Tattoos, Cosmetic Tattoos, Paramedical Tattoos, Camouflage Tattoos):
All clients must sign a waiver form specific to the procedure they'd like done before we begin any procedure. Envy Ink Studios follows the regulations of the Waterloo Region Health and Safety Board, and for the safety of our clients we record lot numbers of every item used for tattoo services. We do not create our own pigments, and in rare cases clients may have an allergic reaction to certain body tattoo pigments. In rare cases cosmetic tattoo (permanent make-up) clients may have allergic reactions to iodine or gentian violet, and the waivers specify possible allergic reactions to make sure that we can perform the safest possible procedure with as little risk as possible.
Clients must all be aware of the risks associated with tattoos (including body tattoos, cosmetic tattoos, paramedical tattoos, and camouflage tattoos). Everybody's skin is different and everybody's skin heals differently. We cannot guarantee that clients will not need a touch-up or multiple touch-ups, for this reason Envy Ink Studios does not offer free touch-ups for body tattoos. Touch-up price is a reduced rate of $40/hr. Different parts of your body are more prone to fading and clients will be advised if touch-ups are most likely necessary for their chosen location. Not all skin heals the same or carries the pigments the same, therefore healing processes vary per individual and precautions must be taken. Certain products used on body tattoos will promote pigment loss during the healing process, and in our aftercare guides we specify which products are okay and not okay to use. If a touch-up is needed and it is determined by our artists that fading was due to negligence of aftercare by the client, then reduced touch-up price will not apply and a full fee will be charged for the service. If infection occurs clients are advised to see their family physician or check into a walk-in clinic or hospital depending on the severity of the infection. Envy Ink Studios uses high grade disinfectants and sanitation products and as noted before strictly follows guides set by the Waterloo Region Health and Safety Board. Our tattoo artists are certified in bloodborne pathogen training and all precautions are taken at all times in order to keep sanitation at an absolute. Envy Ink Studios does not use an autoclave for reuse of any products, instead all products are pre-sterilized and disposable for one time use only. For this reason Envy Ink Studios cannot be held responsible for any infections. If an infection occurs and by the expertise of a physician is deemed to be caused by a bacteria within our studio, Envy Ink Studios will discontinue use of any reusable products associated with the infected client (such as pigments) and thorough investigations will be completed at the expense of Envy Ink Studios in order to pinpoint origins of infection.
Cosmetic tattoo procedures should not be compared with body tattoo procedures. With permanent make-up procedures touch-ups are necessary in most cases, and Envy Ink Studios gives 1 included touch-up session for any cosmetic tattoo procedure. Envy Ink Studios will educate our clients before any procedure about possible risks. Permanent make-up can only be applied in specific areas, due to the stability of the dermis in the skin of a person's face Envy Ink Studios will not risk pigment migration and therefore will not cosmetically tattoo the medial canthus, lateral canthus or lip commissures. Pigments used for permanent make-up procedures are not the same consistency or formula as body tattoo pigments. Cosmetic tattoo pigments are specially formulated for delicate areas with little dermis and formulated to reduce pigment migration as much as possible. For these reasons cosmetic tattoo pigments are not as vibrant as body tattoo pigments, and clients will see a difference in the healed appearance of the pigments. Envy Ink Studios will not use anything but proper pigments for specific procedures and clients must note that lack of vibrancy is expected for healed cosmetic tattoo procedures. Lip tattoos are especially prone to fading due to the lack of dermis in lips -- applies to full filled lips, in these cases pigment is coaxed into the thin mucosa membrane which makes up the surface of the lips. The final healed procedure will result in lips being "stained". Lip tattoo procedures often result in dry lips which need to be moisturized frequently. Envy Ink Studios cannot be held responsible for discomfort of chapped lips feeling if client's lips react with dryness.
In all tattoo cases Envy Ink Studios cannot guarantee that desired colours chosen by clients will heal exactly how they appear in the bottle. Pigment colours vary depending on the undertone of the client's natural skin tone.
