Frequently asked questions
"HOW MUCH DO YOU CHARGE?"
I charge by the hour: $200. I also require a $200 deposit to draw/ create designs
my full day rate is $1200.
"WHAT ARE YOUR MINIMUMS?"
I have a 3 hour minimum.
"CAN YOU COVER UP/ REWORK/ ADD ON TO MY EXISTING TATTOO"
I do not do any kind of cover up, re work or add on tattoos
"I HAVE A DRAWING, I /MY FRIEND/MY KID/ MY UNCLE, DID FOR ME. WILL YOU TATTOO IT?"
As much as I can understand the sentiment, I cannot compromise my own artistic Abilities and reputation to tattoo a drawing I did not do. This also applies to drawings found on the internet, as they belong to someone else.
"I LOVE YOUR WORK! CAN YOU TATTOO A SYMBOL OR QUOTE (ETC) FOR ME?"
I always love hearing kind words about my work! But the tattoos you see in my portfolio and ideas like them are what I prefer doing. If the tattoo you are looking to get doesn't look anything like what you see in my portfolio or similar style, I will recommend a different artist for that design. As an artist I always want to create something unique and custom for my clients and for my portfolio.. Again, I understand the sentimental value but I am working very hard to re-invent my portfolio with photo realism, geometric, lace, and other complex artworks.
"CAN I SEE MY DRAWING/DESIGN BEFORE MY APPOINTMENT?"
Unfortunately I cannot send out drawings before your appointment. I only tattoo one person per day so that if any changes are needed we will have sufficient time to do so.
