FAQ

Where is Hous Studios?

Hous Studios is a private art, design, and tattoo studio, located in the Arts District of Los Angeles. Once projects are approved, the exact address and other studio details will be accessible in the Member Portal.

How can I book a session?

In order to book a session, please take some time to fill out our Inquiry form. If a fit is determined we will be in touch to schedule an initial phone consultation, where you can talk directly to Noah about your vision for your piece.

What can I expect from the process?

With anything that is executed at a very high level, the quality of the finished state of a work comes from a deep investment of time and effort. Only when both client and artist are fully committed to the process can the full potential of each project be realized. This is a collaboration – we will work closely together to bring the meaning behind the piece to life through unique and custom designs. With each piece, we strive to push the boundaries of the medium. Preparation, design, and technique are all stages of the creative process that are in place to ensure that quality remains top priority.

I have a general vision about my tattoo, but I’m having trouble organizing my ideas. Can you help me?

Yes, however it is advised for clients to have general ideas in terms of meaning and purpose well developed prior to imagery. The more clarity that the individual has for the intentions of the piece, the stronger the options are creatively to develop visuals based off of that foundation.

How does pricing work?

Pricing is charged by the session, not the hour. All projects require multiple sessions to complete. Sessions can range from $1,500 to $2,500 depending on the scope and scale of the project including size, design, and placement. A final price will be determined once creative options are presented and final designs are completed.
Example # of sessions for common tattoo placements:

Half sleeve 3-4 sessions
Sleeve 6-8 sessions
Back 7-10 sessions
Side Piece 3-6 sessions
Chest 3-5 sessions

How long is a normal tattoo session?

Sessions last anywhere from 6 to 14+ hours depending on the piece, design, client pain tolerance, and related circumstances. Only one session is held each day, and work will continue until the goals of that particular appointment are accomplished. Sessions are inclusive of breaks, meals, and with longer sessions, pain management. Time is a secondary factor that unfolds according to each specific client and is determined by the project. Quality remains the top priority.

Once approved, how can I book a session?

Once you submit an Inquiry and your Project has been approved, you will be granted access to the Member Portal where you can book sessions both in Los Angeles and abroad. Bookings require a non-refundable deposit of $200 locally and $500 internationally to secure your session date. Deposits count towards the final session price. In the Member Portal, you will have access to all the information required to plan for your tattoo as well as make all necessary travel arrangements for a smooth and enjoyable visit to Los Angeles. A representative will be in touch to make sure that all questions and concerns are addressed well in advance of your session.

What can I expect from the first session?

Once you are in session, various references and options involved in your project will be presented to you based off of your phone consultation. Noah spends extensive time in preparing, gathering, and organizing references, so rest assured he will offer a focused visual to create the best image possible. Clients are also encouraged to bring their own imagery as well for inspiration. From there, final imagery, size, and placement will be finalized, and only until both client and artist are completely satisfied, will tattooing begin. This may or may not be in the first session.

How often does Noah tattoo outside of the US?

Noah travels outside of the United States 2 to 4 times a year, building and continuing work with clients around the world. Upcoming trips can be found in the Studio section under Travel.

What if my country is not listed?

If you do not see your country on the calendar, requests can be made via the Inquiry form. If enough requests are made for a given country it will be considered for future travel.

What can I expect from a session booked during a trip?

All campaigns abroad are organized to work privately, maintaining the values of the studio. With each trip we strive to offer a truly unique and memorable tattoo experience that embodies the energy and character of each country that we visit. Priority booking is available to those that are in contact with the studio or have previously joined us during past campaigns.

How do time-limited releases work?

Time-limited releases will be pre-announced via our mailing list and made available for purchase during a 48-hour period. Time-limited editions will be sized based on the number of prints we sell during those 48 hours. Everyone who orders on the sale days gets a print. We will never re-print an edition, once it has been made available for a timed-release sale.

When will I receive my item?

For time-limited releases, the edition size will be determined after the sale and then put into production, so please allow an estimated 4-6 weeks for delivery. Other items usually ship within a week. Delivery times will vary depending on your location and chosen shipping method. You’ll get an email from us when your order ships, with tracking information.

Returns

If you are not completely satisfied, email us at [email protected] to arrange a return within 30 days. We reserve the right to refuse service and/or limit quantities to anyone at our discretion.
