More info on booking can be found on my booking page.
I require a sliding scale $100-$500 non-refundable deposit based on the complexity and size of the tattoo at the time of booking to hold your spot. The deposit may or may not go towards the final price of the tattoo depending on the time to draw/research for your image. Canceling or rescheduling requires 48hrs advance notice or your deposit will be forfeited.
I charge $200/hr and tend to book out max sessions at 4 hours. If your piece takes longer, we will break it into multiple sessions.
I don’t typically offer art reviews as I work on the drawing the night before or the morning of your tattoo appointment. If it is something that we plan out in advance for a larger piece, (i.e. sleeve, back piece, etc) then we can set up a time to go over the art and do some fitting to your body before the tattoo appointment. If you are nervous about not seeing the art before your tattoo appointment, it is totally normal. When we have a consultation, I will make sure that we are really clear on what the details are for your piece, and if I have questions, I may reach out to you prior to starting the art. I hope that by choosing me to be your artist, you would put your trust in me to give you the best tattoo that I can. I have the confidence to give every tattoo my all, and I wish for the same level of confidence from my clients.
I often get asked to do cover ups and add ons to existing tattoos. I will take these on a case by case basis if I am confident and clear with the possible outcome of the project. If I am unsure, I will refer you to someone that would better suit your needs. My work tends to rely on lines and that isn’t always best suited for coverups, but I am willing to take a stab at it, if I know that we can make it better.
Keep it simple. I will instruct you on how long to wear the bandage on your tattoo based on our session. Once removing the bandage, rinse with water and some Castile soap or fragrance free antibacterial soap to get any of the blood or plasma off, then pat dry with a clean towel or disposable paper towel, let it dry for the night/day. Starting the next day, you will rinse it at least once a day and apply a thin layer of fragrance free lotion (I like Aveeno) as needed for dryness. Try to keep your new tattoo covered by loose fitting clothing as to not expose it to the elements for at least two weeks or until any flaking/scabbing is gone and it is smooth to the touch. No soaking in a body of water, (no soggy scabs) and keep it out of the sun during that time. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me by email or phone!
