BOOKING AN APPOINTMENT FAQ's
- HOW DO I BOOK AN APPOINTMENT FOR A CONVENTION OR GUEST SPOT?
Convention and guest spot appointments are scheduled through the TRAVEL DATES section.
The same deposit guidelines stated below apply.
- HOW WILL I KNOW WHEN YOUR BOOKS ARE OPEN?
Books open at the beginning of each quarter: January 1st, April 1st, July 1st & October 1st unless otherwise noted* on the TATTOO REQUEST form in the CONTACT section.
The appointment form will only be active beginning on those dates to schedule appointments for the next few months.
The TATTOO REQUEST form will be available until that quarter is booked.
The TATTOO REQUEST form is located in the CONTACT section.
- WHAT IF I REALLY WANT TO GET TATTOOED IN NOVEMBER BUT IT'S ONLY FEBRUARY?
I will not book out any further than the quarter that we are already in unless otherwise noted*.
Even though I adore "planners" a lot can happen in a few months.
I've also found that this is the best way to keep my waiting period to a minimum.
*The best way to stay updated is to subscribe to the newsletter.
- WHY DO I NEED TO PUT DOWN A DEPOSIT?
All tattoo appointments require a nonrefundable/nontransferable $100 deposit.
The purpose of the deposit is to secure your appointment and is to ensure that I am partially compensated for my time in the case that you reschedule without 48 hours notice or cancel your appointment.
If all goes well, your deposit will be subtracted from the total of your tattoo at the time of completion.
Some appointments will require a consultation and your deposit will be paid then.
Some appointments can be booked directly via email and your deposit will be collected via Paypal.
In this case, if you do not provide a deposit within 3 business days, the appointment slot will be reopened to other clients.
- HOW MUCH IS THIS GONNA COST ME?
My rate is $180/hr and my travel rate is $200/hr.
Most of the work that's represented in my portfolio is completed in 2-3 hour sessions ( this includes kewpies ) and larger pieces are completed over the course of a few 2-3 hour sessions.
It really all depends on the size and complexity of the design which we can discuss at you consultation.
I accept cash.
Please allow enough time prior to your appointment to retrieve cash.
Payment is due at the completion of your tattoo.
- CAN I SEE MY DESIGN?
Artwork is drawn the day of the appointment.
I do not provide artwork prior to the appointment.
There will be time allotted on the day of your appointment to make any minor design changes.
Major changes that would require a redraw, including a vast difference of placement may result in rescheduling.
- WHY HAVEN'T I GOTTEN A RESPONSE YET?
I will respond to your inquiry as soon as I can.
Due to a high volume of inquiries, please allow up to a week for a reply.
I appreciate your patience.
Also, check your junk folder, sometimes we end up in there.
- IS THERE ANYTHING OR ANYONE YOU WON'T TATTOO?
I do not tattoo hands (this includes fingers), toes, necks, faces, inner lips or genitals.
I do not do cosmetic tattooing
I do not accept cover-up work nor will I finish or fix other artists work
I do not tattoo anyone under the age of 18.
