APpointment policy

All appointments require a $50 non-refundable deposit, made in person at the shop, in the form of cash or credit card.  This $50 will hold your appointment spot and cover your drawing fees.  The $50 will come off of the price of the tattoo when you get it done. If you need to reschedule, please do so as soon as possible.  If you don't show up or are more than 15 minutes late and we have to reschedule, you have to put down another $50.

Minor policy

You must be 18 to get tattooed in the state of Tennessee. Vivid Tattoo will not tattoo any minor for any reason, ever!  So don’t ask.

Vivid Tattoo will perform only the following piercings on minors age 15 to 18: navels, ears/cartilage, eyebrows, nostrils, tongue, labrets/monroes/lips. We will not perform any other piercings on anyone under 18, even with parent’s permission…so again, don’t ask.

Parents must be in the shop with the minor at all times.

We have release forms that the parent must fill out. We will make a copy of the parent’s driver’s license on the back of the release form, if the parent does not have a driver’s license or state issued ID card, we will not pierce the minor. The Health Department also requires that we copy a birth certificate or state issued ID for the minor. If the last names of the parent/guardian and minor are different, then a proof of guardianship will be required.

We only allow one person in the procedure room with the person getting pierced…this means your parent. Do not bring all of your friends with you to watch, because they won’t be able to.

Parents, it is your responsibility to make sure that your child follows aftercare instructions on their piercing. You will leave here with a piercing that was done in a clean, sterile environment by a trained professional piercer, instructions on aftercare, and H2Ocean, the aftercare solution needed to clean the piercing. If it gets infected, we will help in anyway we can, but following all instructions will help cut out any problems during the healing process.

Also, we prefer that you do not bring your children to the shop while you are here to get a tattoo or piercing.  Children are not allowed in the procedure rooms under any circumstances, nor are they allowed to be left unattended in the lobby.  We have artwork and play music that is not appropriate for children.


We offer henna by appointment only. For any questions or to set up an appointment, check out Shelby's page and either call to talk to her or send her an email.  


Tuesday through Saturday 1pm to 8pm

Closed Sunday and Monday
