What is the Process?

First, we discuss your idea and decide if I’m the right tattooer for you.  Once we agree to move forward, I collect a $50 Non-Refundable deposit. This secures your artwork prep and appointment time.  After any references are collected, I will submit your first drawing. You can make up to TWO revisions, for a total of 3 artwork submissions.  At this point we should have the design locked down. (If you have not accepted the artwork after the third submission, the deposit is forfeit, and we begin again.)

Once your drawing is complete and approved, we can set the date for your appointment.  (24 hours notice is appreciated for rescheduling. Failure to do so will forfeit your deposit.)


  • Do you require a deposit?

Yes! The deposit for every tattoo is $50 dollars.
