Where did our name come from?

Back in mid-1900's america, barbers and tattoo shops were often close together, sometimes even sharing a store-front. any average blue collar man looking for work in these days needed to look their best to get any job, meaning they had to cover up tattoos, be clean shaven, hide the black eyes (shiners) and hangovers from the prior night on the town. so the barbers and tattoo shops would help the everyday blue collar man by offering the “black eye special”. this service included a haircut, a hot towel straight razor shave, and depending on the barber, a tonic scalp treatment. then the tattoo artists could make good side income by helping the day laborers hide the effects of their drunken escapades from the night before. so shiner's with the intention of paying homage to the odder side of the tradition of barbering.

Appointments and Cancellation Policy.

As we are growing, our schedule is getting booked up more and more by the day.

Appointments take priority over walk ins.

Walk ins are welcome, but you can expect a wait.

But what we will recommend is to get on our schedule. We make it super simple to book.

Cancellation & No Show Policy

Cancellations need to be made at least 2 hours before appointment time.

2 Cancellations in a row will result in a pre-payment of your next service.

No Shows are not cool.

We have walk ins that get turned down from time to time, if you don't show up and don't tell us, it's not fair to us, and it's not fair to other clients.

2 No Shows will result in a pre-payment of your next service.

If you walk in and your are waiting, and some one walks in after you and goes straight to the chair, they have an appointment. No body gets skipped. Just because they're a buddy, doesn't mean they get ahead of you. It just means they scheduled an appointment.

Our time and your time is important. We want to make it fair and easy for all clients.
