Please submit a tattoo request form here.
For small pieces that can be completed in one session I quote a set price for the finished piece, that way you know exactly what to budget. For larger projects, the hourly feeranges from $175-200/hour, depending on the city.
There are many factors that go into determining the cost of a tattoo, please fill out the request form for a quote.
All consultation are being done via email now. There may be situations where it's helpful for me to meet you in person; primarily for larger or anatomically specific designs (like sleeves), or if we need to assess scarring. Otherwise, we'll meet in person on your appointment day. But you can learn more about me here!
Yes! I love creating special tattoos, and almost all of my work is 100% custom.
No. Plagiarism is not cool. (If we can get the original artist's permission, that's another story!) If you really, really love another tattoo artists's style, consider getting them to do your tattoo!
Maybe. I will have to know the details, and see the design to make sure that it will work as a tattoo. What works on paper may not stand the test of time on skin.
You can see the full deposit policy here. (But don't do step two, lol!)
I don't send any artwork via email. My busy schedule doesn't accommodate additional time to review drawings separately from your appointment date. Please review my portfolio and Instagram account to get a feel for my art style. Small changes can be made on your appointment day, just be sure that I'm the right artist for you before picking me.
No worries! Check out this page: Your First Tattoo
If you need to cancel or reschedule, please email my assistant Vi directly: email@example.com
(If you are within the cancellation timeframe, or if you reschedule more then two times, your deposit will be forfeit and we will need to collect a new one to make a new appointment).
Please review my aftercare directions here.
Yes, but conditionally. The touchup must be completed within 3 months. The purpose of a touch up is to ensure that your tattoo heals great. If a line or colour just didn't heal quite right, I want the opportunity to bring out its best with a short, free touch up session. If you want to change something, add something, or if something has happened that made the tattoo heal poorly (like a sunburn), then you will need to pay for the session.
I want to make my commitment to equity and anti-racism clear and public. I am always actively working to make my little piece of the world a safe, inclusive, and equitable one. You can review my Commitment to Equity and my Mission & Values page to get to know my values better.
I will be updating my FAQ's periodically,
but if you have a question I have not addressed,
you can get in touch with me here.
