My hourly rate is $150 For cover ups and re-do's of other people's work my hourly rate is $175 I have a small private state licensed studio. A $100 minimum
Deposits: To schedule a tattoo appointment I require a deposit of $100. If it will be a multiple appointment tattoo the minimum deposit is $200. Your deposit carries over to and can be used at your last appointment. This deposit goes towards the price of the tattoo unless you change your mind and a completely new consultation and drawing are necessary. In this case, the old deposit goes towards the hours I spent drawing and a new deposit will be required. I do not refund deposits. In some cases a Gift Certificate can be issued for future use. Artwork: I don't tattoo other peoples artwork. Your tattoo design will be one of a kind and reinvented if necessary. I prefer and give priority to clients that want multiple session larger pieces. Monthly 3 hour sessions until completion is ideal. I also prioritize large scale geometric pieces, pattern work, dotwork, mandalas, botanical and natural world/nature element/themed tattoos. I generally draw the morning of the tattoo appointment. You will see the tattoo design at the appointment. Every tattoo requires a consultation. In person is preferred but online (email or Skype) is available for those out of town. At the consultation I take notes and ask lots of questions. The artwork will not vary from what we figured out together, unless I contact you first for an OK. Sometimes changes are unavoidable to make a good, well ageing tattoo. If there needs to be more than 30 minutes of revision done on the tattoo design we may need to reschedule, depending on my schedule. Scheduling: I have about a 2 month wait for tattoo appointments. To retain your deposit I require a 48 hour notice to reschedule or cancel. For multiple session tattoos all of the appointments will be made at the consultation.
