Processing Time

All orders are processed within one business day of being approved by ClearSale, a third-party fraud prevention company.

During the winter, if we receive an order for tattoo inks and PMU/SPM pigments on a Thursday or Friday and temperatures are below freezing, we will delay shipping until the following Monday to prevent the products from freezing over the weekend. Customers are encouraged to purchase a UniHeat 72-hour warmer to protect their inks and pigments during shipping in winter. These packs are available on our website at cost.

Other Shipping Information

Upon fulfilling each order, we send a confirmation email to each customer. This email contains the shipping tracking number.

We request that no parcel is Safe Dropped to prevent theft and we carefully package all goods to avoid damage. However, we are not liable for any damage or loss caused by Canada Post. If your order does not arrive or if it arrives damaged, please submit your claim directly to Canada Post.
