• I am proud to work from Iron Cypress tattoo in Lake Charles, Louisiana. We work by appointment, and the wait to get tattooed can be around 2-4 months. I typically schedule all sessions we'll need from the beginning, though, so for multi-session work we can schedule our sessions as close as a week apart if we need to.
    Our shop is in the Central Point building, it's the door all the way on the left and upstairs. Our website, ironcypress.com, has a map and directions if you are not familiar with the spot. If you'd like to come by to see the shop, look at hardcopy portfolios, buy shirts etc, please feel free, we keep the doors open to the public on Saturdays 10am-6pm.
    If you know you'd like to set up a consultation time, please email me at chris@chriswalkin.com , just leave a quick description of what you're looking to have done and a contact number... and please be patient. I generally make calls on Mondays while I'm in the shop drawing, but during certain times of year it might take me a couple weeks for me to get to your email. I'm sorry for this, but I really try make sure that I don't overbook myself and nothing gets rushed or needs to be rescheduled once we have everything rolling. For general questions or if you have an ongoing project, you can call the shop at (337)564-6600... but again if you want to start scheduling a new project, emailing me here is the best way I've found to keep everything in order.

    For the consult, we'll only need about 30 minutes to an hour, so we can get you fitted and get some sketches done to make sure we are on the same page visually. Feel free to email me reference here or bring hardcopies with you, along with any specifics you have in mind. Be aware there is a non-refundable cash deposit at the end of the consult to set up the tattoo appointments, so please have a sound idea of what you're looking to accomplish before setting things up. I put alot of time into drawing and preparing every project i take on, so i really appreciate folks who are reliable and finish what they start. If you have any general questions, still feel free to email me or call the shop anytime.

    See you in the shop, thanks for everything folks.
