PROCESS & PRICING
PLEASE READ IN FULL - THIS ANSWERS MANY COMMONLY ASKED QUESTIONS
My process if fairly simple. I no longer meet for consultations, I ask that clients send reference images and a brief explanation including sizing and placement information. PLEASE NOTE that I will be giving priority in booking to ideas that involve portraiture or themes similar to my artwork (artwork can be seen under the 'PORTFOLIO' tab on my website).
I am continually trying to learn and grow as an artist, I love my niche and hope to continue to create pieces that involve similar elements (Im so sorry but landscapes and wooded scenes arent a part of this).
Is there a way to increase your chances of getting tattooed? Absolutely! If I'm allowed more creativity within your request, youre more likely to be booked! If you want something within the realm of portraiture/ lady portraits/ angry animals /gangster themes/ religious iconography that im allowed to play with/ eerie themed genres. I have done SO many St. Michaels, St. Florians, maps & compass', American Flags (by themselves), calm wolves and lions, mountains and galaxies that I get burned out on doing them and therefore am not looking to book those this round.
I require a deposit of $200 to book your appointment (this is deducted from the overall amount of your tattoo the day of your appointment) - and further, to create your design. Previously, designs were sent to you 1 or 2 days before the actual appointment date - Ive had to change this process as Ive had many cancellations over the years after Ive spent hours designing and stenciling. Due to this, I now work with clients the morning of their appointment to tweak the design that I mock up the night before. We finalize the design together at the shop with you next to me! We choose placement and sizing together that day.
I replicate the images I photoshop, so I never physically draw designs out. Im noting this since a lot of clients ask me to specifically draw their designs ahead of time. My drawings on average take 15-40 hours depending on their complexity so this is physically impossible for me to incorporate into my work schedule for each client. You will be able to see the design that I mock up, give your feedback and I can alter the design until you love it. Generally I'll print a few varying sizes of the design the day of your appointment so you can choose whichever suits you best.
My pricing is $200/hr - Most tattoo "pieces" take about 5-8 hours, depending on what you would like done.. Sleeves are created "piece" by "piece" until the artwork develops into a fully merged sleeve. Each appointment (if you need more than one) would need to be at least a month apart in order for the skin to fully heal in between sessions.
Ive had clients that plan to create larger area sleeves book multiple appointments. You ARE allowed to book two days in a row if you would like more area covered quickly. After this, appointments must be at least a month apart. Let me know in your email if you would like to book multiple appointments so I can review dates with you. For the 2021 year, Ill be booking Mondays-Fridays.
You will be refunded for your scheduled appointment up to 7 days before you cancel, as one week gives me ample time to fill your spot. Cancellations that occur within a week of your appointment will not be refunded.
