Is your tattoo parlor sanitary? COVID-19 safe? What standards do you follow?

We are fully licensed and in good standing regarding all Mexican Health Codes for this type of facility. This is very important to us and you.

We follow strict COVID-19 policies by the Mexican Department of Health.

We use brand new, clean equipment that is opened in front of you before we start. We also have medical sterilization ultrasonic tanks and autoclaves. Everything is sanitary as this is also most important to the longevity of a good tattoo.

We do not allow smoking, food, or drink in our studio – no exceptions. We do not service customers who are intoxicated or under the influence of any substance.

How many “virgin” tattoo customers do you see on average?

We’d say that at least 50% of our customers are virgins, meaning they come in to get their first tattoo at Baja Tattoo. We are also happy to say that many come back and also tell others to visit us when in Cabo. A referral is a great compliment and probably also what has kept us in business for over 17 years.

How long does it take to get a tattoo?

How long is a piece of string? How much is a car? Again, it all depends on the design, size, colors and detail. Remember, nothing done quickly ever looks great. We are only interested in producing a professional product. If you are limited in time then wait until you have the time to invest. A tattoo is for life and should not be rushed.

Do you have special accommodations for celebrity clients?

Yes, Cabo is a popular destination of many people. We are discreet, accommodate privacy and have a very secure location.  Please contact us to discuss options.

Do I need an appointment? How do I make a reservation?

Appointments are not necessary but are recommended. If you are in Cabo stop in and speak to a staff member as they will be able to work out the best appointment for you. A 20% cash deposit is required for any appointment.

What forms of payment do you take?

We accept cash but can also take Visa, MC and AMEX. Remember all credit card transactions require a 16% MXN IVA state tax (it’s the law). All prices quoted are in USD. We will accept MXN Peso at current daily exchange rate (16). But ya, we do take cash and USD is the best cash we like to take.

How much does a tattoo cost?

All depends on the size, color and location. Our hourly minimum rate is $150.00 USD. You can email in a design for a quote or stop in the shop during business hours to discuss with an artist.

Does a tattoo hurt? What should I expect?

Not really… think of a baby Unicorn kissing, and sucking on your skin. No seriously, it all depends on where you get that tattoo. Some places will be more painful than others. You have to remember that there are needles that are quickly poking your skin while allowing ink to go under 7 layers of skin. Pain will all depend on the location and size.

What are your hours and days of service?

We are open everyday except some holidays. Typical hours are 10 AM to 11 PM. Sundays, we’ll probably close a little earlier.

Where are you located?

We are located in the heart of downtown Cabo San Lucas, Mexico across from the marina. Baja Tattoo is adjacent to Cabo Wabo on the 2nd floor. Our address is Plaza de Los Mariachis loc.37 2nd Piso, Blvd. Marina S/N Colonia Centro, Cabo San Lucas, Baja California Sur. Our phone is +52-624-105-0869.
