Frequently Asked Questions
Have you made changes to the way you set up appointments due to Covid-19?
Red Wing Tattoo follows MDH and CDC guidelines to ensure the safety of our clients as well as our artists.
All consults now start with an email or phone call. Please include your tattoo idea description (with photos if possible), size in inches, as well as desired placement. Click here to email
Please be aware we have a long list of clients that had appointments pushed back due to our closure during Covid, so you will have to wait to get an appointment. Once an appointment time is set, a deposit is required.
What are you doing differently during appointments due to Covid-19?
We do not allow any walk in business, so clients will have to wait in their car and call to let staff know they have arrived. Please be aware NO CHILDREN OR GUESTS are allowed to accompany clients at this time.
Once inside, all clients are screened for Covid, and have their temperature taken. If you fail the screening, you will have to reschedule your appointment.
EVERYONE IS REQUIRED TO WEAR A MASK PER MDH. THIS IS NON-NEGOTIABLE!
I want a tattoo but I’m on a limited budget. How do you determine pricing?
Tattoo pricing is determined by the amount of time it will take to complete the work. This is typically by the hour. Artists take things like artwork placement, size, and fine details into account when quoting prices.
Keep in mind larger pieces such as sleeves are completed in several sessions, so you would never pay for the entire piece at once.
Do you have specific aftercare instructions and/or products?
All tattoo clients are provided written aftercare instructions to help them care for their tattoo as it heals. This initial care makes a big difference in what your tattoo will look like in the long run.
We offer Steriwash piercing aftercare solution for sale. Our clients love this product and have had an easier time healing their fresh piercings when using this product.
About Red Wing Tattoo
We founded Red Wing Tattoo in 1997 in with one mission: to bring creativity and artistic quality to the tattoo and body piercing scene in the upper Mississippi River Valley. Originally located in Red Wing, MN, we relocated to Winona in 2000.
Our staff is made of seasoned pros ready to bring your vision to reality, no matter how complex.

The Shop Manager/Artist
ChelC is the creative heartbeat of Red Wing Tattoo. She grew up at Red Wing Tattoo, and trained under the watchful eye of our founder, her Dad, Kevin LeQue.
Her favorite pieces are realistic florals. She also took special training and does cosmetic tattooing. See her for permanent eyebrows, eyeliner and lipstick, as well as other options.
With years and years of experience, we know you’ll be satisfied (and likely amazed) at the work you’ll walk away with.

Jr apprenticed under ChelC and was an artist long before he picked up a tattoo machine. His pencil drawings are ultra realistic. Jr has a special interest in black and grey work and does amazing portrait work. Creative, calm and professional, give us a call with a special request for Jr today.
