HOW TO BOOK
Please before sending an email check my Instagram to confirm my bookings are open.
When my bookings are closed I don't accept new clients, and emails will not be replied to.
To book an appointment or request a quote please email me at email@example.com with the following info:
detailed description of the tattoo you want;
size and placement;
if you want colour or black & grey;
best days and times to book your tattoo.
Response time is up to 5 business days.
Please consider my style when requesting a tattoo - you can check my portfolio here. If you're not sure I am able to do the style you want, feel free to email me anyway. If I don't feel comfortable doing it, I will refer you to another artist who does that style
To book an appointment I ask for a deposit of:
$50 for small tattoos
$150 for bigger tattoos (plus tax)
The deposit is applied to the cost of your tattoo on the day the tattoo is completed.
If you don't show up for your appointment/cancel you will lose your deposit.
I require 72-hour notice (3 days) to re-book your appointment (one time only), otherwise, you will forfeit your deposit to compensate for expenses and missed opportunities.
If you're not sure when you'll be able to reschedule, don't worry, you have 6 months to book your tattoo since the day of paying the deposit. After that, another deposit will be required.
The deposit is non-refundable.
If you have sent an email with all the info required here, you should receive an email with a quote. If on the day of the tattoo, you decide to change the design or size, the price might change as well. Please be sure to communicate any changes before your appointment.
The quote is valid for 6 months.
I charge per piece - considering how detailed your tattoo is, its size, placement, and the time it takes me to finish your tattoo. If it's a large piece you might receive a price range.
My minimum price is $165.
I offer a complimentary touch-up within a six-month period from the date your tattoo was initially applied. For the best outcome, I recommend waiting at least a month before scheduling your touch-up. This waiting period allows your tattoo to fully settle. If your tattoo still appears shiny and doesn't quite match the rest of your skin, it's probably not ready for a touch-up just yet. If you're not sure your tattoo needs a touch up, just send me a picture and we will go from there :)
If you booked your touch-up and need to reschedule, let me know at least 2 days (48 hours) before your appointment. Without this notice, you will lose your opportunity for the complimentary touch-up. Please keep in mind that I can only accommodate one reschedule per appointment.
The tattoo will be touched up as it was on the day the tattoo was done - only to fix any fading. If you want to change the design in any way, increase the boldness of lines or add anything - the touch-up will be charged as a tattoo, accordingly.
If you don't show up for your touch-up appointment, you will lose your complimentary touch-up, and to get it done, you will be charged the minimum price.
Please note that I cannot provide free touch-ups for tattoos on hands, fingers, feet, elbows, or knees, as these areas usually do not heal as well. I can always touch them up for free if you get more tattoos done though.
HEALING & AGING
It’s important to note that all tattoos will fade over time, but well-done fine line tattoos will not fade any more or faster than tattoos done in any other style. Fine line tattoos are delicate designs that require proper aftercare, which will be given to you after your appointment.
That said, due to the amount of ink, fine line heals lighter (think a dark shade of grey) and the lines might not look as "crisp". That doesn't mean your tattoo needs a touch up. It simply means the ink settled under your skin.
When deciding on what tattoo to get done, keep in mind that very small and detailed designs can age very poorly, even being fine line. They can get blurry and spread, turning into a "blob".
Although I have no way to predict how your skin will age, during an appointment, I will always let you know what designs I think would age well and what wouldn't. Sometimes, the tattoos you see online are very fresh - it doesn't mean they will look good in 10 years. Try to be flexible with sizes and placement. My only goal is to make sure you will have a beautiful tattoo you won't regret later on :)
