The Answers You Need
HOW DO I BOOK AN APPOINTMENT WITH YOU?
Please visit the contact page and fill out the contact form, I prefer requests via my provided form, or by email email@example.com to help streamline my process. Provide as much detail as possible about the tattoo you are hoping to book. If you only have a general idea of what you want and are not sure about the rest, that's okay! An in-person, or over the phone, consultation can be booked so we can work together to realize your vision and discuss the details of your request.
*Please note you must be 18+ years to be tattooed, ID will be cited upon meeting.*
WHAT DO YOU CHARGE? WHAT FORMS OF PAYMENT DO YOU ACCEPT?
At a junior tattoo artist rate I charge $100.00 an hour plus gst.
Email transfer, cash, debit and credit are all accepted methods of payment.
DO I HAVE TO PAY A DEPOSIT? WHAT HAPPENS IF I CANCEL?
Every appointment is required to pay a $100.00 non refundable deposit in order to book a spot. This helps cover my drawing time and secures our time together. The deposit will come off your appointment fee.
I please ask that you give at least 48 hours notice if wanting to reschedule a booked appointment. If given at least 48 hours we can reschedule your appointment and deposit. If unable to give 48 hours notice you will lose your deposit and another one will be required in order to book a new date. This policy is in place because if you reschedule an appointment within 48 hours it is very difficult for me to fill that spot on such short notice.
If you no show your appointment, you will be charged 50% of that booked appointment prior to booking in again. and you will forfeit your deposit.
Fees are due over the phone, or by email transfer, prior to rebooking any appointments.
HOW DO I PREPARE FOR MY APPOINTMENT?
The days leading up to your appointment I find it very helpful to stay well hydrated, getting a good amount of sleep, using a gentle body scrub on non delicate areas, and applying a moisturizing lotion daily. The more soft and supple your skin is, the easier I have at implanting ink!
Sometimes we get so excited for a new tattoo that we forgo eating before our appointment. Please limit your caffeine intake beforehand and try to eat a good meal (preferably protein rich) before your tattoo session. Skipping meals can hinder how long you can sit for, and/or make you nauseous or light headed. Too much caffeine can make you unable to sit still for long periods of time and/or make you more sensitive to touch.
Lastly do not come to your appointment hungover, your body will not tolerate implanting ink into your skin.
WHAT ARE YOUR COVID SAFETY PRECAUTIONS?
No additional guests. Please don't bring any friends or family members to your appointment.
I cannot accommodate early arrivals as I am with another client or disinfecting the work space.
Please arrive at your scheduled time, wait in your car, and send me a message and I will let you know when I am ready.
Masks are now not required during your time at the studio & hand sanitizer will be available.
If you have an infectious or contagious illness, or are suspected of showing symptoms of COVID-19, please contact me as soon as possible to reschedule your appointment for a later date. For the safety of my household and other clients, please do not come to your appointment sick. If it is assumed you are currently sick your appointment will be cancelled and rescheduled for when you are healthy again. You will be expected to pay for that appointment, even if no service has been rendered.
Sickness/Illness will not be tolerated at this time:
- sore throat
- body aches
- stuffed or runny nose
- loss of taste or smell
COVID-19 release form will be required for all appointments.
WHAT IS YOUR REFUND POLICY?
You are paying for an artist's time, product and other expenses used to provide you with a service.
No refunds will be given for any reason on services.
Any concerns regarding the healed outcome of a tattoo will be addressed after adequate healing time (6-12 weeks) at a complimentary consultation, or touchup appointment. Touchup appointment fees are not included in initial appointment costs, there is a cost of $100.00+ per touchup appointment.
