Do I need a consult to get tattooed?

I require consults for first time tattoos, large tattoos, complicated tattoos or ideas, and cover ups. If you're still working through an idea, or you just want to touch base with me before getting tattooed, that's okay too. The more you communicate with me, the more personalized your tattoo will be. Remember, consults are free, and tattoos are forever!

What's your hourly rate? 

My rate is $135 an hour. The clock starts when the needle touches the skin, or if you request significant changes to the artwork at your appointment, when I start making those changes.

Why do I have to pay a deposit? Is it refundable?

Once I decide to take on your tattoo, you will be invoiced the deposit, and it is required to secure your appointment in my books. It lets me know you're serious about the tattoo! The deposit credits towards your appointment and have a 1 year expiration date.  If you need multiple sessions, the deposit goes toward your final visit. The deposit is non-refundable. If you need to reschedule, I can work with you, but I require 72 hours notice and your deposit can only be transferred once. 

Deposit for half day is $85 (3hrs)

Deposit for full day is $135 (6hrs)

I have an exact image I want tattooed. Will you do it?

No, I do not copy other artists images. I can draw inspiration from images that you send me, but please note that I only do custom artwork. 

What kind of artwork do you do?

Take a look at my portfolio. I also post recent tattoos to instagram, so you can take a look there to see what I've been up to. 

Can I see my tattoo before the appointment?

Artwork review will happen at your tattoo appointment. 


How do I book an appointment with you?

Moving forward, I am booking on a rolling basis every three months. For more information about dates and availability, see the booking information page

Do you do walk ins? Can I make an appointment for this weekend?

I am an appointment only artist. I am booked 2-3 months in advance. 

Can I bring a friend or child to my appointment?

Due to COVID, only the person being tattooed is allowed in the shop. No minors are allowed in the shop.

Do you tattoo minors?

Sorry, it is illegal to tattoo anyone under the age of 18.

I am pregnant or breastfeeding. Can I book a tattoo?

Unfortunately, I will not tattoo someone who is pregnant or currently breastfeeding.
