BEFORE MAKING AN APPOINTMENT:
The minimum age I will tattoo is 18. I generally price tattoos by the hour. My current rate is between $125 – $150 an hour. The final cost of the tattoo is estimated by anticipating how much time is involved with the project. Factors for estimating your tattoo include size, color, detail, location on the body and participation of the client.
Please keep in mind that quoting tattoo time is not an exact science and it is only an ESTIMATE.
Contact me for a consultation through the shop, email, phone or in person to discuss your ideas and to estimate the amount of time to schedule.
You will need to leave a deposit at the studio. A deposit must be made before an appointment can be generated. You can do this in person or over the phone using a credit card. The cost of a deposit varies depending on the design. Once a deposit is made, the receptionist on staff or myself will schedule an appointment for you. Please schedule responsibly as deposits are non-refundable. If you need to reschedule please do so at least 24 hours before your appointment. Deposits are for tattoo appointments only, and for the design and area of body agreed upon. The deposit is completely non-refundable and will be deducted off of the overall cost of the tattoo.
For tattoos that require more than one session, the deposit will NOT be deducted from the overall cost until the final/last appointment.
Please consult your doctor to make sure your medication complies with tattooing. Anyone taking blood thinners and antibiotics should not get tattooed.
Some concepts (like a portrait) are very straight forward, while other concepts may entail a lot of research and design. It is important to be able to describe the concept of your tattoo in only a few words, a couple of sentences or even a basic sketch. If you need more than a couple of lines to describe the concept of your tattoo, you will need to speak to me in person. If you need to go back over the initial design and possibly make changes, that can be arranged as well.
If you would like a straightforward portrait of someone or a re-creation of something specific such as painting, please attach a CLEAR – NON-BLURRY – HIGH RESOLUTION – reference photo(s), which have preferably not been taken with a cell phone. Please understand that I will not re-create a copy of any other tattooers art or tattoos and that due to copyrights am unable to re-create some artist’s works without permission. However, I am more than happy to use these as inspiration and concepts for totally new designs when that is the case.
