We have done our best to display as clearly as possible the colors and images of the tattoo design gallery that appear on our Service. We cannot guarantee that the colors displayed by your computer will be accurate.
All tattoo design descriptions and tattoo design rates may be changed at any time without notice, at the discretion of the providers who make their services and tattoo designs available on our Service. We reserve the right to stop offering a tattoo design at any time.

FEES AND PAYMENT

Any transaction initiated on the Service must be completed on the Service.
If one of our providers or the customer decides to cancel an appointment, the 2.1% service fee will not be refunded by Book Me.Ink.
