Frequently Asked Questions
I only do a certain amount of tattoos a year, so I only take up projects that are interesting to me and that I think I can do a great job at. I am only trying to book 3 months out at a time, and sometimes the spots fill up quickly. I am really sorry if I don't get back to your message or email. Please don't take it personally; I get many emails and can't possibly get to everyone. If you don't get a response, feel free to inquire again! This is a professional business and I prefer correspondences to be professional and well thought out. Here are some answers to the most common questions I get:
What type of tattoos do you like doing?
I enjoy doing any kind of realism, portraits and surrealism. Through the last few years, I have developed my own unique style, and that is the style I like to tattoo in. I don't do Traditional, Tribal, Japanese, Lettering or Celtic work. There are a lot of awesome tattooers that specialize in these styles and can do a better job than me.
I don't take on any ongoing tattoos from other artists. That means that I don't finish or fix a tattoo if I didn't start it.
I take very few cover-ups, which depends on the idea behind the new tattoo and the size and value (darkness) of the old tattoo.
My ideal client would come to me looking for a tattoo in my style. They would give me a general theme or idea, nothing to stringent or specific, and let me take full artistic freedom to create their piece.
How far out are you booked?
I'm currently OPEN for Jan-April 2020.
How much do you charge?
Currently only looking to do large scale signature pieces. I only do day rates in private studio. My rates vary depending on whether I am traveling or not. I will send my rate if I take up the project.
I require a non-refundable deposit to hold the appointment date, which is payable through PayPal or Cash app.
Do you travel or go to any conventions?
Yes, I travel for guest spots, and I like to go at least to a couple of out-of-state conventions every year. I'll post information about them on the Home Page and on social media via Instagram and Facebook.
Deposit & Payments
Deposit is for tattoo appointment only, for the piece agreed upon, on the area of the body agreed upon, is completely non-refundable and will be deducted off the overall cost of the tattoo. For tattoos that require more than one session, the deposit will NOT be deducted off the overall cost until the final/last appointment. Deposits are payable by Cash. Prepaying for appointments Cash will not be allowed. ONLY CASH will be accepted on the day of your appointment for any tattoo, aftercare or merchandise payment.
In a case where I'm unable to fulfill my appointment obligation with you due to extenuating circumstances, such as, but not limited to, sickness and travel delays, I will reschedule your appointment for a later date or a full refund will be given within 45 days of your scheduled appointment. In order to remain fair to those who are already on the waitlist, any major area/design/concept change will result in a forfeit of deposit at which time a new deposit will be required within 48 hours to hold any future appointments and to keep from being added back onto the waitlist.
If you need to reschedule or cancel, I will require two (2) weeks notice to transfer deposit otherwise deposit will be forfeited, and a new deposit will be required within 48 hours to prevent cancelation of future appointments if any are scheduled. If you no show (do not call or show up for an appointment) the same will apply. Special considerations will be given for pregnancy and extended illness. In order to remain fair to those who are already on the waitlist, consecutive cancelations, reschedules, or now shows will result in forfeit of deposit, cancelation of future appointments and being added back to the wait list.
Multiple Ongoing Appointments
I strongly advise booking multiple sessions in advance as lapsing outside of a year between sessions will cause you to lose priority and may ultimately result in a lapse in coherence with the direction of your tattoo.
Most of the finished pieces you see on Instagram and Facebook (not including Sleeves, full back pieces ect) are full 2 day sessions.
