ABOUT lucky llama

Lucky Llama is a locally owned tattoo shop on the corner of Winnetka Ave and Medicine Lake Road located in New Hope, Minnesota. Lucky Llama opened in the fall of 2019. This tattoo shop is unique because of its fundraising efforts. Every two months a nonprofit is selected and during the two months a goal of $1000 is attempted to be reached and donated to that nonprofit. It is also a custom tattoo shop. Lucky Llama does tattoos only, no piercings. If you have any questions regarding tattoos and Lucky Llama policies, you can navigate through the tabs at the top of this page.

The State of Minnesota requires a State regulated ID for every appointment. This can include driver's license, military ID, or passport. To be tattooed, Minnesota State law requires 18 years of age.

First, you'll have to schedule a consultation. During this time you'll sit down with your artist and discuss ideas and possibilities for your tattoo. You will also submit a nonrefundable deposit that will help pay for your last session. See the Deposit Policy if you have any questions or concerns.
During your consult you will book the time of you actual tattoo. Consults can last anywhere from five minutes to an hour, so come prepared with your ideas and an open mind!
