Frequently Asked Questions and some more info about the studio…
WHERE ARE YOU LOCATED?
New Amsterdam Tattoo Studio is located in Amsterdam at Aalsmeerweg 8.
WHAT STYLES OF TATTOOING DO YOU DO?
We mainly focus on geometrical, dotwork, black and grey, Realistic, Blackwork, mandalas, Polynesian and Maori tattoos.
Every artist you find on this site has their own specific style and expertise and we want to stick to those styles to create the best tattoos for you. You can always check with us if a specific artist would like to do something different but please don’t be disappointed if he or she rejects a request which does not fall within his/her style of working.
WHEN ARE YOU OPEN?
Our studio is open from Monday till Saturday between 11.00-17.00 (Saturday from 10.00 – 17.00) but we recommend making an appointment because we are usually very busy.
You can always call first to check our schedule for a specific day and see if we have any options for walk ins that day: +31(0)20 773 1067

HOW CAN I BOOK AN APPOINTMENT AT NEW AMSTERDAM TATTOO STUDIO?
For appointments, we do all of our bookings in person at the studio or through our website here at WWW.NEWAMSTERDAMTATTOOSTUDIO.COM where you will find a listing of our artists along with their online portfolios.
We do not schedule appointments via the phone, only in person at the studio or via email.
Once you choose the artist you are interested in you can fill out an appointment request. Be aware that these requests get emailed directly to the artist you choose.
We appreciate your patience as it may take some artists longer than others to respond due to the many emails they receive each day. Be prepared to wait 4-5 days before getting an answer.
Thank you for your understanding.
To confirm your appointment we require a minimum down payment of €50,-. This way we know that a client is serious about getting tattooed and we don’t do all the work for nothing in case someone doesn’t show up for his/her appointment.
HOW OLD DO YOU HAVE TO BE TO GET TATTOOED?
You need to be 18 years old to get tattooed at our studio.
HOW CAN I GET A PRICE QUOTE?
The best way to get an accurate price range is through a consultation with an artist, if not in person, through the tattoo request form we mentioned above.
In order for us to quote your idea, we take into consideration the subject of the tattoo, the placement on the body, the size, detail, etc.
It’s practically impossible for us to give you a quote without having all of this information. We do have a €70,- shop minimum per tattoo, but please contact our artists to discuss details.
You are also more than welcome to come in to our studio and talk to one of our artists who would be more than happy to help get you the information you need. Please use the contact form to make an appointment with the artist of your choice.
WHEN IS THE BEST TIME TO FIND A PARTICULAR ARTIST IN THE SHOP?
The schedules vary from artist to artist so if you are interested in contacting/getting tattooed by a particular artist the best way would be to go to our contact page and fill out the appointment request form or to call the studio.
WHEN DO I SEE THE DESIGN FOR MY TATTOO?
Every artist at our studio will have the design ready on the day of the tattoo session. Together with your artist you will go through the details of the design and there is always room for small adjustments. We do not send designs via email.
YOU ARE A DUTCH TATTOO STUDIO, WHY IS YOUR WEBSITE IN ENGLISH?
Since we are based in Amsterdam we get a lot of emails from people outside of Holland and therefore have one uniform language which is English. But we speak and write Dutch fluently so if your Dutch, mail ons dan gewoon in het Nederlands 🙂
DO YOU HAVE GUEST ARTISTS?
We do have guest artists and spots available but we only reserve a place for those that have a solid portfolio (+5 years experience) and match our style and criteria. Send us an email about who you are and a link to your Instagram if you think your work could be something for our studio.
DO YOU DO PIERCINGS?
No, we only specialize in tattoos.
WHAT FORMS OF PAYMENT ARE ACCEPTED?
We accept cash only.
