Do You Require a Retainer/Deposit?

I do. Retainers/Deposits are for the agreed project and are non-refundable. It is not an extra fee. The Retainer/Deposit is applied to the final session of you tattoo. Deposits will be forfeited for no call no shows. (Which I hate doing. Please let’s no waste each others time.) Smaller projects $100 deposit. Larger projects $200-500, depending on the size.

what do you charge?

$200 per hour or $1000 flat rate for the day (6-8 hours) and my minimum is $100.

what do you recommend for aftercare?

I recommend you remove your bandage after at least one hour. Then clean gently with a basic fragrance free soap, examples would be Dial or Ivory. Rinse and blot dry with a new paper towel. Then apply a minimal amount of Gold Bond Ultimate Healing Lotion with Aloe. Repeat 3 to 5 times daily.

will you remake Someone else's tattoo on me?

The short answer is NO. I think my clients deserve to have a custom piece drawn and tattooed on them. I am happy to use any reference images you have found as inspiration, would much prefer to make you something original. That being said i do make exceptions. For example, I would do my best to recreate a deceased relatives tattoo, for you.

do you accept tips?

I never expect to be tipped, however I alway appreciate it. I accept tips in the form of Diet Coke, Size 11 Nike's or Cash.
