Q. How do I make an appointment?
A. When emailing, please send a brief description, placement and any reference photos of tattoo ideas. jpg. and pdf. documents only please!
Due to the large number of tattoo requests I receive and the exceptionally long wait list, I have started to accept only tattoo proposals for blackwork only pieces, but I will consider whatever you want to send me. It can’t hurt to ask!
I have a 2-3 MONTH WAIT LIST, so please accommodate for this when attempting to schedule an appointment.
All appointments require a deposit. The deposit holds the appointment and also covers any drawing time needed. THE DEPOSIT IS NON-REFUNDABLE.
If you are more than 15 MINUTES LATE, the tattoo appointment will be rescheduled and a new deposit must be made.
The deposit is $100 and goes toward the cost of the tattoo, it will be applied to the price on the last day of sessions to complete the piece. The deposit will be made by paypal only. The deposit is void if an appointment is not made within 3 months. Example: If you leave a deposit and I do not hear from you in 3 months, that deposit is void and a new deposit must be made if you want to get tattooed. If you cancel within 24 hours of the scheduled appointment you must leave a another deposit.
Q. I have seen you do color tattoos in the past, can you do mine in color?
A. Sorry, I no longer do color tattoos. I have been tattooing for over 16 years and have decided to only do tattoos that speak to me. Blackwork is just what is in my heart. There are plenty of great color artists in town that can create something beautiful for you. If you want blackwork, I’m your girl!
Q. I have a skin condition, can I get tattooed?
A. You may be able to get tattoos but personally I no longer do tattoos on people skin conditions. It is a high liability and I do not take this kind of risk.
Q. When can I see my drawing?
A. Artwork will be available for viewing at the time of your appointment and not before… sorry, I know you’re anxious but artwork is generally not ready until the day of the appointment. On that day we will go over the design, make any adjustments necessary and then once you are satisfied with the piece we can get to the fun part.
Q. How much do you charge?
A. My pricing has recently changed.
I charge an hourly rate of $200 an hr.
Q. How long do sleeves take to do?
A. 1/2 Sleeves, full sleeves, back pieces and leg sleeves estimated are anywhere from 15 to 50 hours, with 2-4 sittings per session depending on complexity and size. Usually allot for 3 weeks of healing in between sessions.
Q. My friend said he knew someone who can do my tattoo for cheap. Can you do this for $20?
A. Cheap tattoos aren’t good and good tattoos aren’t cheap.
Q. Do I need to bring anything or do anything to prepare?
A. Please wear loose fitting, appropriate clothing. (i.e. if your getting a tattoo on your arm, wear a tank top, if your getting one on your lower back, wear loose fitting pants). Also, make sure it is something you don’t mind ruining as tattoo inks don’t come out of clothes easily. Please do not drink alcohol 24 hours before getting tattooed. This means no partying the night before please! And as a side note… Its always helpful to have eaten and be well rested before getting tattooed.
