Frequently Asked Questions
What is your tattoo rate per hour?
My hourly rate is $200/hr with a minimum of $100. I work efficiently, and am focused on giving you the high quality tattoo you're looking for. There is no charge for consultations - if you need to discuss ideas, questions, etc about what you're planning for your tattoo, write me an e-mail!
How do I book an appointment?
I book appointments for consultations and tattoos via e-mail. Consultations are no charge. After necessary details and an appointment date are discussed, a nonrefundable booking fee is required to finalize booking a tattoo appointment. The deposit goes completely toward the overall payment at the respective session.
**I ask 72+ hours advance notice to reschedule so that I can fill my calendar as needed. No call/No shows, late reschedules, and cancellations will result in a total loss of fees paid.**
How do I get my tattoo design started?
A consultation is required first, which I'm currently doing over e-mail. I need to know:
General concept of the tattoo design
Location you want the tattoo
Size of the tattoo (inch x inch)
Color preferences, style preference, etc.
Send any picture references you might want to influence aspects of your tattoo design. If you can have a second person take a picture of the planned tattoo location, I can use this to draw directly onto for a good idea of layout and size.
Any other questions or concerns you have about health, my tattoo process, aftercare, etc.
Do you take walk-ins?
No - I work by appointment only and request that you contact me several weeks before you'd like to have the tattoo done. Please e-mail me with the details of your tattoo to get started!
I don't know what I want! Can you design something for free?
No - I have available designs that I'd like to do here! Otherwise, I require a deposit for any new designs/bookings and need you to have a general direction of the tattoo concept to start.
**Please keep in mind that some concepts or styles may be turned away because of design conflicts and other issues!**
How long does it take to create a design?
I work on the design a day or so prior to the scheduled appointment on a rolling schedule. I won't provide any previews until the actual session, since I'm working on other designs for the upcoming immediate appointments before then. That said, I schedule additional time for all sessions just in case last-minute changes are requested. While this rarely happens, it typically only takes a few minutes.
