How much do you charge? 

  • My rate is $180 per hour plus 5% tax, and I have a one hour minimum charge. 

How do your deposits work?

  • The deposit will come off of your last session. There is no drawing fee. 
  • Any rescheduling within two weeks of your appointment will result in a lost deposit. 

Are any items being reused?

  • Tattoo machines, power supply, cords, foot pedal and wash bottle are reused; they are covered with barriers during each tattoo and sanitized between clients
  • All other supplies used during the tattoo are single use disposables

What type of ink is used?

  • Fusion Ink 
  • Silverback Ink 
  • Solid Ink

How do I prepare for my tattoo?

  • Please keep the area to be tattooed free of any sunburns, cuts and bruising; if you show up with skin that isn't suitable to be tattooed we will need to reschedule and you will lose your deposit. 
  • Do not show up drunk, really hungover, or sick. Tattoos are an invasive procedure that require a lot of healing effort on your behalf, please show up in good health. 
  • Eat before your appointment and bring along snacks and another meal if you have a long session scheduled. I have water here but feel free to bring along other non-alcoholic drinks. 
  • If you want to listen to your own music, or watch shows on your laptop etc.  please bring headphones.
