You're invited to experience art in a new way. My mission is to continually heal the energy in myself and those around me by creating meaningful art, with compassion and an inclusive, collaborative mindset. I truly enjoy providing professional service in a clean, peaceful environment surrounded by natural beauty, and I'm happy to share this with you. I believe it is possible to receive beautiful tattoo work, while enjoying the process, protecting the planet and helping those in need. Ultimately, I hope that my art and tattooing will inspire everyone to become better friends with the planet, animals, and each other.

How I work

I am an artist who enjoys the art process as much as the art.  My interest is perpetually looking for ways to improve my artistic process and art while considering the impact of disposable culture.  I seek to create permanent, living art and wearable altars to strengthen and encourage you without destroying the planet. As an artist, I feel that the environment that art is created in is as sacred as the process itself.  Ideally, all tattoo shops would be as kind, spotless and as environmentally aware as Stellar Door.  However the standards are unfortunately and disappointingly low as some places are merely holding the minimum requirements. We go above and beyond minimum requirements to create an inclusive environment that is welcoming and safe for our guests.  We  look forward to continuing to lead the way in mindful practices, including many of these additional considerations that are extended to every member of our community with gratitude.

  • healthy boundaries and respectful communication at all times
  • all clients are treated with respect and cared for during each phase of project development
  • all supplies used are brand new, sterilized, and disposable or single use
  • we will show you your art at your tattoo appointment. If you want to approve art, simply schedule an art check
  • all artwork is shown in-person.  I do not send pics, you must schedule an art check to see your art before your appointment
  • as many disposable products as possible have been replaced by petroleum-free and plastic-free options
  • all inks and ointments are tattoo-specific, vegan, cruelty-free and made as locally as possible
  • our parking, entry, workspace, and restroom facilities are ADA compliant for maximum accessibility
  • our standardized safety and sanitary procedure places distance between appointment times to allow for cleaning
  • choose the type of music you want to listen to at the beginning of each session for maximum comfort
  • light refreshments like purified water, herbal tea and munchies are always complimentary
  • last but not least, we support our workers by valuing their time and honoring the custom tattoo covenant (read more below).

What our customers are saying

"Nickhole is the best tattoo artist I've ever experienced! She not only listens to what her clients wish to have done but also works with her incredible intuition and always has wonderful ideas to share! She is thoughtful, considerate, funny, and beautifully professional. Her shop is clean, organized, and she has cultivated welcoming, warm energy there. I've been inked by many people over the years but nothing is like getting tattooed by Nickhole. I easily fall into a comfortable trance state. Perhaps it's the energy work she does while tattooing, perhaps the vibe of the shop, or all of the above. I highly recommend her and have no plans to go to any other artist ever again!!"

Policy Notification

We appreciate that you’ve chosen us for your tattoo and energy work wishes. To provide the best service possible to all of our clients we have implemented the following policies.

Cancellation Policy

We respectfully ask that you provide us with a 72 hour notice of any art changes, schedule changes or cancellation requests. Please understand that when you cancel or miss your appointment without providing a 72 hour notice we are often unable to fill that appointment time. This can result in a loss of work to your artist and also means our other clients miss the opportunity to come in. For this reason, you will be charged $100 from your deposit for the first missed session and $100 charged from the deposit for the second missed session after that. On a third occasion, the client's account will be audited to assess the probability of continuing the work.  We reserve the right to dismiss clients who are repeatedly rescheduling with less than 72 hours notice. We also reserve the right to require a credit card number to be given to book future appointments so that appropriate fees may be charged if a late cancellation does occur.

Reschedule Policy

We understand that emergencies can arise and illnesses do occur at inopportune times. If you have a fever, a known infection, or have experienced vomiting or diarrhea within 24 hours prior to your appointment time, we request that you reschedule your session. Inclement weather may also result in the need for last minute reschedules. We will do our best to give advanced notice if we are closing for the day or need to reschedule due to bad weather and we ask you to do the same. Please do not risk your own safety trying to make it to your appointment. Last minute reschedules due to emergency, illness, or inclement weather will generally not result in any missed session charges, but this is determined on a case-by-case basis.

Late Arrival Policy

We request that you arrive no earlier than 5-10 minutes prior to your appointment. Please give yourself time to fill out any required paperwork as well as answer any questions your artist may have about how you like the art. We understand that issues can arise that may cause you to be late for your appointment. However, we ask that you call to inform us if this ever occurs so we can do our best to accommodate you. Appointment times are reserved for each client, so oftentimes we cannot exceed that reserved time without making the next client late. For this reason, arriving after your appointment time may result in loss of time from your tattoo so that your session ends at the scheduled time. In return we will do our best to be on time, and if we are unable to do so we will add a bonus of 20 minutes to your session to make up for our late arrival or adjust the service charge accordingly.  Please note that sometimes depending on humidity etc, it may take longer than a few minutes to allow our sanitized items to dry.  While we do our best to start each appointment on time, We cannot control the rate of evaporation and will err on the side of letting things dry and prioritizing safety over start time.  

Inappropriate Behavior Policy

Tattooing and energy work are for relaxation and entertainment purposes only. There is absolutely no sexual component to our practice whatsoever. Any insinuation, joke, gesture, conversation, or request for otherwise will result in immediate termination of your session and a refusal of any and all services in the future without a refund. You will be charged the deposit regardless of the length of your session. Depending on the behavior exhibited we may also file a report with the local authorities if necessary. 

Treat your artist with respect and dignity and you will be treated the same in return.

By submitting your deposit or discount bundle, you agree to abide by these policies. Thanks for understanding and let us know if you have questions about this

Custom tattoo Covenant and Refund Policy explained

Due to COVID restrictions and the time-consuming nature of the custom-order design process of each project we are not offering refunds on any custom tattoos, merchandise, or deposits forfeited due to appointments rescheduled or cancelled with less than 72 hours unless medically necessary. Due to the "personalized-for-you" nature of a custom order we are unable to resell this to someone else as it was made especially for you by your request. 

Please take note of this before buying a package deal.  By purchasing a pre-paid bundle you acknowledge that this is non-refundable and made to be used for the sole purpose of paying for the time the artist has poured into your project. Our no-refunds on custom artwork applies to the art you asked for being made in our brains and then on digital media and paper.  The tattoo itself is the receipt showing the result of the countless hours that went into our education and the practice creation itself. 

We would never force anyone to get tattooed, just like we would never ask any artist to work for free. Communication is key! if you have questions, please ask.  If your purchase is made we assume that the client read and agreed to this as it is posted on the kiosk page as well as spent a satisfactory amount of time reviewing previous work and has a reasonable expectation that contractor’s services will be satisfactory. If you're at all unclear about any of this, please ask before your purchase is made.  Thank you!

 We are a busy, happy, and productive shop.  Keeping our focus on staying safe, positive and in  mindset are our highest priorities. We start working the moment you’ve made your investment, so it is imperative to share all information and references as soon as possible, preferably by e-mail, zoom or in-person consultation. At Stellar Door Tattoo, our time and experience are valuable. We will not give any previews of custom designs to review until your appointment unless you schedule an in-person art check. We do not send pictures or drawings so that we can stand with you in the mirror and immediately answer any questions you may have in-person . If there are any minor changes needed, like size, placement, color choices etc. we can typically adjust on appointment day.  Any major/excessive revisions required, or big changes to your concept, idea, or image overall, your deposit may be absorbed by the artist for their time spent drawing and revising images and scheduling the time you asked for and a new $100 deposit will be required. 

We excitedly continue working on your design to keep momentum and will not tolerate unhealthy or abusive behavior towards any artist.  If you are found to be abusive or interact in an unhealthy way, we reserve the right to refuse service without refunding anything.  To keep our energy safe, we insist on having fair, and reasonable, mutually-healthy boundaries. If you have any questions about this please ask for clarification via [email protected] 

EXAMPLE 1: Harassing your artist to send pics or drawings instead of scheduling an art check will not be tolerated. If you need to see your art before tattoo day, please schedule an art check.  Requests to preview art are only granted by a planned, in-person visit.  Repeated provocation of artists asking to preview art without simply scheduling an art check will result in dismissal ands loss of your non-refundable deposit.

EXAMPLE 2: Purchasing a package, then using your artist as an emotional and artistic labor source during the process, only to cancel with less than 72 hours and request a refund: be prepared to lose your deposit or forfeit your entire package deal. Though we are happy to listen during the time we share we are not professional counselors.  Our efforts are made with the intention of the project completion in the form of the tattoo you custom-ordered. 

DEPOSIT FORFEIT:if you are cancelling or rescheduling with less than 72 hrs notice, $100 deposit is forfeited or deducted from your package credit for each occurrence  . 

If you reschedule with at least 72 hours before your appointment via the reschedule link in your confirmation e mail , you will automatically be offered the next availability.  

Here at Stellar Door Tattoo, we pride ourselves not only in providing the best possible experience during your procedure, but equally value the long-lasting effects of well-done finished product. Some things can create an imbalance in the process like pre-existing skin damage. We diligently try to identify any damage to the skin 48 hours prior to entering the tattoo station for every appointment. We ask you for the same consideration and report any assessed damage to the artist 72 hours prior to your appointment to reschedule. 

Damages include but are not limited to:

  • SUN DAMAGE: sun/tanning bed exposure, sunburn, scratches, rashes, open wounds, bites, infections, blisters, and scabbing.  Avoid sun/tanning bed exposure for 30 days BEFORE and AFTER your appointment. If you arrive to your appointment with a dry, damaged tan or sunburn, you will need to reschedule and you will forfeit your deposit. As your skin begins to heal from the burn, the pigment from your tattoo will go along with it.
  • INTOXICATION: Do not consume alcohol, caffeine, or blood thinners (Niacin, aspirin, fish oil, ibuprofen etc.) 48 hours BEFORE the procedure to give healing a head start and avoid excess bleeding among other issues. If you arrive to your appointment drunk, dehydrated, intoxicated, hungover, over-caffeinated and unable to be still, your appointment is canceled and you may forfeit your $100 deposit, requiring a new $100 deposit.
