CONSULTATION AND DEPOSITS
Because I want to work with you.
SO HOW DOES THIS WORK?
Every tattoo I take on is custom for each of my clients. Email is the best way to get started - or use the contact form at the bottom of the page here.
We'll chat about your concept and look at some artwork together so I can get a good idea of your style, ensure that I'm the best artist for your design, and come up with a composition. It's great to gather a variety of references from photographs and artwork to fully flesh out your design. Help me visualize your idea with as many specifics as you can. If, say, you want a tiger in profile with a yellow rose, try to find a photo that speaks to you. I love working with photoraphs from life.
I also will usually ask for a snapshot of the area you'd like to be tattooed. You can even doodle a circle around it, to help me get an idea of the scale we're working with.
Appointments generally have a minimum of a two-hour commitment to each piece. This ensures that I'll be able to give you the custom detail and a substantial size that will let your artwork really sing. I do require a non-refundable deposit to secure your appointment!
Please use this feature to send a deposit only after corresponding with me to discuss your appointment.
Deposits are transferrable w̶i̶t̶h̶ ̶m̶i̶n̶i̶m̶u̶m̶ ̶4̶8̶ ̶h̶o̶u̶r̶s̶ ̶n̶o̶t̶i̶c̶e̶ for ANY reason, because fuck 2020. Not feeling well? Allergies or The Rona? Gotta take care of a loved one who is ill? Gotta fill in at work for someone else taking leave? We'll kick your tattoo appointment down the road and I'm honoring deposits through 2021, no questions asked.
Deposits are not refundable for any reason other than my own need to reschedule indefinitely due to illness or losing a crucial limb in a battle to the death with a grizzly bear.
CURRENT STUDIO POLICIES
A few notes for tattoo sessions, updated to protect both of us in light of covid-19: please remember to bring your ID and a *mandatory* face covering! This applies across all states I travel to. Multi-layer masks or medical masks are ideal for passing the "opacity test", and please make sure it will be comfortable to wear for our session with minimal adjustments. Please wear clean clothes, or bring a change of something fresh and comfortable. In an effort to best equip myself and my spaces, my working rate is $180/hr.
I'm happy to sanitize your phone or ipad for some entertainment while we work. Snacks and drinks won't be allowed in our procedure area - don't worry, we'll take breaks! We aren't able to accommodate clients bringing any guests in the studio at this time, as we are working with strict capacity guidelines.
Thank you for your understanding and help!
