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 fee goes toward the overall payment at the respective session. 

**I require 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 all 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 your idea, along with any reference pics for color, linework, style requests, etc.

  • Photo and written description of location you want the tattoo  - I can draw directly onto these for design layout and sizing references.  Please include the written location along with the photos  - they're sometimes sent in reverse camera, and I need to make sure I'm designing for the correct side.

  • Size of the tattoo (inch x inch) of the full area/s you want the tattoo to cover

  • Health-related concerns?

  • Any other questions or concerns you might have about the process?

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 concerns!**

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.

How do I take care of my tattoo afterwards?

I've written down a few aftercare instructions and other helpful tips!
