How do I book a tattoo appointment?

To request a tattoo appointment please refer to my Booking page. You’ll send me an email with all the information I need for your tattoo.

What kind of styles do you tattoo?

I prioritize my flash designs, traditional style tattoos, and tattoos that fit within my personal art style. I love anything psychedelic, surreal, or existential. Please look at my portfolio before contacting! I will not take on tattoo projects that I don’t feel confident in.

When will I hear back from you?

I will no longer be answering DMs on Instagram. For emails I will get back to you within a week.

Do I have to pay a deposit?

Yes! You will be required to leave a $50 deposit when you book your appointment using my scheduling link. Payment methods include card and PayPal. The deposit will come off the total cost for the tattoo. If your tattoo takes multiple sessions the deposit will apply to the last session.

Deposits are non-refundable! If you need to reschedule, please let me know at least 48 hours in advance and we can move your deposit to the new date/time.

You will loose your deposit if you cancel, no show, or show up more than 15 minutes late without contacting me or the shop.

How much do you charge?

I charge $180/hr with a minimum of $100. If you have a budget for your tattoo please include in the email and we can discuss options. I usually give a price estimate when I send you my booking link, but feel free to ask and I will give you a price.

When will I see a drawing?

I will have the drawing ready for you when you come in for the appointment. There will be plenty of time to allow for drawing changed together in person, and I don’t charge for time spent drawing. I do not send drawings to anyone ahead of time!

What forms of payment do you accept?

Cash, Venmo, or credit card.

How should I prepare for my tattoo?

Please eat a good meal before getting tattooed. Do not drink alcohol before. Stay hydrated and well rested. No need to shave the area where the tattoo is going as I’ll do that in the preparation process.
