***All scheduling done via email. You MUST READ THE FAQ BELOW BEFORE SCHEDULING.
// - Schedule - I currently work Mon-Fri 10am-4pm
*select weekends in the fall and winter will be available for multisession pieces.
// - Process - I would like to tell you a bit about my process as it may differ from other artists/studios
- First, in most cases I do not draw custom tattoos ahead of time. Most of the tattoos you see on my page, unless flash, are designed the morning of the tattoo appointment. By doing this I am allowing a more direct collaboration with the client within the design process. I do make exceptions when necessary, usually for more complex larger multi session pieces.
- Second, I welcome references and preferences! But I will not copy a reference or style. I will do my version of the subject. I ask that you are familiar with the work that I produce before scheduling so that
we can be on the same page when designing the tattoo. I believe, when viewing my portfolio, that the
the common aesthetic tying the images together is fairly clear. If you do not know feel free to ask!
- I DO NOT do fineline style tattoos and there are no fineline style tattoos in my portfolio.
// - Pricing - Most tattoos are priced by the piece. I can give you a range that the tattoo might fall within.
If you have a budget please let me know as that may affect the design. I get asked all the time for an
for an hourly rate. Hourly rates only apply to large multi-session pieces. I currently charge 200/hr.
This is the standard rate for any quality artist in our area.
// - Session Length - If your tattoo is a single session piece I can give you an estimate of the time it will take
to complete the tattoo. If your tattoo is a multi session piece I usually start at 10am and finish at 2/3pm.
A 4 hour session is usually the best cutoff for both client and artist.
