Q: How do I get a tattoo from you?
A: pick a design and click the booking link, Or for custom designs, send me email contact and away we go!
Q: What style do you tattoo?
A: I do primarily black and grey, in what I call "Illustrative Realism" style
Q: What the heck is "Illustrative Realism"?
A: Well...it's a phrase I made up :) Basically, I try to do my tattoos in a way that incorporates high contrast and art strokes with realism to get an end product that has an artistic feel and will hold up over time.
Q: What subjects do you like tattooing?
A: Mainly animals, flower close ups, stand alone pieces, and nature landscapes.
Q: What are your rates?
A: $170/ hour for custom pieces and "tip only" for my available designs.
Q: do you take any idea that comes your way?
A: no. I try and only take on projects that are in the sweet spot of my style and subject matter.
Q: How does the design process work?
A: For available designs, I start by coming up with designs i think will look awesome, then i post those designs on this website and Instagram. once posted, they are available for anyone to claim. once a design is claimed and an appointment is booked, the design will be removed from my available list. once you have booked a date and design, you just show up and we make it happen!
For custom pieces, you send me your idea and any reference photos along with size and placement ideas. I work and the design and will get an idea over to you about 1-2 weeks ahead of your appointment date.
Q: What can I expect at our tattoo appointment?
A: When you come in I'll have the design ready in a few different sizes, so we can see what fits best. Once we figure that out, I'll get the stencil ready while you fill out a waiver form. After that we will get the stencil placed on you to your liking, which is the final time for adjustments. From there on out it's tattoo time! We can listen to whatever music you like, watch Netflix, tell stories, talk about the meaning of life, or just enjoy the silent zen of tattooing. Whatever you like :)
Q: Can I bring a guest?
A: Absolutely! Because of the size of the studio, please limit it to one guest, but they are more than welcome to join you. Also, because of health and safety reasons (and for my concentration) please only bring a guest who is 15 years old or older.
