You will hear different thing about repairing tires or replacing them. I do not have a problem plug/repairing them if they are in the middle of the tread and is a clean puncture. But I don't much like that on a front. Since you have the custom you should be tubeless also so you don't have to worry about the tube.
hard for me to say with out seeing it. But the "better safe than sorry" way is to just get a new tire.

I just bought my bike not too long ago and it had new tires put on it, but I think I hit a nail in my garage and now the front is flat.
Would something like Slime or Ride-On be a permanent solution, or do I need to take it in?
Never use slime or fix a flat type products in anything that travels at highway speeds. It can cause a weight unbalance in the tire and cause a wobble. Bad in cars, potentially deadly for us.
I would just take the tire (or trailer the bike) back to whoever installed the tire. There's a possibility they screwed something up, they should repair it free of charge. Had this happen when they put the wrong tube in my tire.
