How do I book an appointment?

Please feel free to use our form by clicking the button below. We are an appointment only studio, you must send in a request or an email to schedule.

​​

 Please allow up to four days for a response, if you do not receive one please send another email. My inbox can become flooded at times. I try to get back to everyone in time but I am a one woman show!


The more information you can give about the tattoo you want, the easier it will be for me to get an idea of what you are looking for.  Please be specific and open-minded for artistic interpertation.

A non-refundable/non-transferable minimum $100 deposit is required on all appointments. Deposits must be made online, or is person at the consultation. Deposits are deducted from the tattoo the day the tattoo is completed, and the remainder may be paid in cash or credit card.

How much does a tattoo cost?

 

I have a $300 minimum.

All tattoos are charged at an hourly rate ($150/hour)

 

Estimates can be provided only at consultation. 

 

When discussing tattoos, I try to be as transparent as possible. Any estimate provided via email/dm is only a rough estimate and price may vary. This is due to the difficulty of estimating how long a tattoo will take to render. Factors that affects include, size and complexity of tattoo, location, and the client's ability to sit. 

For a more accurate estimate an in person consultation is advised. 

I have a few examples of tattoo and their approximate time to complete. This might give you a better idea of what to expect from a single or multiple sessions.

Two sessions between 2-3 hours

Three hour session

Three sessions three hours each

Deposit Policy?

​All sessions require $100 deposit. 

A non-refundable deposit is required to hold your appointment date in my schedule. Your deposit will be deducted the day that your tattoo has been completed, and will otherwise hold all of your appointment dates. This is important so that the time can be reserved specifically for you! 

In the event you need to reschedule, I require an email 48 hours in advance. **in the event of illness an exception can be made.**

No-calls and no-shows will forfeit their deposit and can be denied any future service. All deposits are non-refundable and non-transferable

I will move your appointment with your deposit up to three time before it is forfeited

IMPORTANT:

 

•  Pleeease only ever wash your tattoo with clean hands- Wash your hands with antibacterial soap before you wash your tattoo.  Personally I use Dial Gold for all my tattoos. 

•  Never use bar soap to clean your tattoo. Liquid soap only!

•  Avoid heavy sweating around the area of your tattoo for at least one week after your appointment.

•  Do not soak your tattoo in any waters (lakes, oceans, pools, bathtubs, etc.) for at least three weeks.

•  Do not use a tanning bed for at least one month after your tattoo appointment, -use SPF sunscreen anytime you will be in the sun after your tattoo is healed.

•  Wear clean, comfortable clothing that won’t rub your tattoo!

•  Never drown your tattoo in too much ointment, salve, or lotion. It needs to breath and too much ointment will prevent the correct healing process from taking place.

 

 

WHAT TO DO IF YOU HAVE SANIDERM (Tegaderm or Dynarex View Guard)

 

•  Please leave your first bandage on your tattoo for 24 hours after your appointment.

•  After 24 hours, while showering, gently remove your bandage. Slowly stretch back the edges of the bandage parallel to your skin, take your time doing this. 

•  Once removed, lather soap in your clean hands, and with lukewarm, running water, gently wash your tattoo clean, thoroughly removing any blood, ink, and plasma that is left behind, and fully rinsing the soap away.   

•  Once clean, gently pat your tattoo dry with a paper towel, make sure not to leave any fibrous pieces of paper towel on the tattoo, air dry for a couple of minutes.

•  Once dry, peel back the papery side of your bandage and apply it to the area from the center outwards. Make sure not to contaminate the sticky side of the bandage. After it is applied, removed the plastic top layer and you’re good to go!

•  Leave your second bandage on your tattoo for up to five days, the longer the better!

•  After you remove your second bandage, use white non-scented lotion to keep your new tattoo moisturized until tattoo is fully healed.

 

WHAT TO DO IF YOU DON’T HAVE SANIDERM

 

•  Leave your first, standard bandage on for at least a couple hours.

•  Before removing bandage, wash your hands thoroughly.

•  Once removed, lather soap in your clean hands , and with lukewarm, running water, gently wash your tattoo clean, thoroughly removing any blood, ink, and plasma that is left behind, and fully rinsing the soap away.   

•  Once clean, gently pat your tattoo dry with a paper towel, make sure not to leave any fibrous pieces of paper towel on the tattoo, air dry for a couple of minutes.

  • Once dry, apply a thin later of scent free salve or ointment. I recommend using aquaphor. Repeat this process at least twice a day for five days. Don’t over wash.

  • After the fifth day of healing discontinue the use of ointment and switch to a white non-scented lotion to keep your new tattoo moisturized until tattoo is fully healed.

 

 

WHAT TO EXPECT

 

  • Your tattoo and the surrounding area might be swollen and red for the next week or so. 

  • Ink may come to surface, this is normal, wash this away and reapply ointment.

  • Do not let your tattoo stick to sheets or clothing. This can pull our color and it might be painful to separate. If this does happen, moisten fabric, and slowly loosen fabric, and remove from skin. Wash tattoo and apply ointment. 

  • Shading may fade and colors may look dull as they heal. This process will be done after about one month. I do free touch ups up to a year after your original appointment date, if it is necessary.

 

********I offer all my clients one free touch up if needed up to one year from the appointment date! I want to ensure you have the best possible tattoo!
