The shop minimum is $150. This is for smaller/one-off pieces.
With larger projects, I will be taking on one client per day. A 3+ hour minimum for bigger pieces is strongly preferred. Please take this into consideration when submitting a form to get tattooed.
Placement on the body can change the final price (certain areas are more difficult to tattoo), which is why the hourly rate is in place. A timer will start right when we start the actual tattoo process, stenciling/free-handing are not part of the hourly rate).
General hourly rate is $250/HR.
Full payment (hourly rate) must be made at the end of the session.
A sales tax of 4.2% will be added to the final cost of the tattoo; please make sure to bring the total with added tax.

A non-refundable deposit of $150 ($300 for larger pieces | please upload your deposit to link in Google Invite), will be required for all appointments and ensures that your time and date will be booked and dedicated to you. This deposit covers the time and energy spent drawing, measuring, and laying things out.

After the full optics of the tattoo have been agreed upon, minute adjustments can be made. Designs and drawings for appointment will begin after deposit is sent, appointments will not be booked until after deposit is received,.
The final design will be shown to you on the day of the tattoo. Any major adjustments will require a reschedule and to leave a new deposit. If you're uncomfortable with that, a second consult can be scheduled before the scheduling the tattoo, to see the design ($50) and if 30-50%+ of the design is changed then a new deposit is made and we'll have to reschedule!
If you reschedule your first consultation, a $150 deposit is required before meeting in-person. The deposit will go towards the tattoo. Once your form has been submitted, the date and time for the appointment will be confirmed.
No payment plans. Any payments sent in addition to the deposit, will not be counted towards your tattoo and will automatically be donated (proof will be sent to you).
All cancellations made within 72 hours of appointment will forfeit the $150/$300 deposit and a new one must be made.
15 minute late arrival, with no notice, will be treated as a cancellation and same deposit terms will apply.
There are times where the energy just isn't right to work together or for the design to come into fruition, I'd really love to ensure we're both feeling as best as possible before beginning this process. That being said, if I'm drawing and things are not coming together, there's a chance I may have to reschedule or cancel altogether. This tattoo will be with you for the rest of your corporeal life and it's important to me that we both feel good about it. Please be gentle with yourself and me, inform me if you're not feeling up for getting tattooed with as much notice as possible and I will do the same.
GUEST SPOT POLICY:
Cancellations made within 2 weeks of the appointment will forfeit the deposit unless of course in cases of emergency.
Please understand that I want your tattoo to feel right and am always willing to work with you. These terms are to protect me as a self-employed artist and full-time student who is doing the best I can. If you have any questions or concerns, don’t hesitate to ask!

Remove the bandage 2-3 hours after the tattoo has finished. If it is late at night, leave the bandage on until the morning. If you have Second Skin/Saniderm/Tegaderm, leave the bandage on for 3-5 days until it begins to leak, then continue with the following steps:
1. Gently wash the tattoo with natural soap (Dr. Bronner’s) or antimicrobial soap and water and air dry or pat dry with a clean paper towel. Ensuring your fingers are clean, apply a thin layer of ointment/oil/butter (depending on your preference, my recommendation is Shea Butter) after washing the tattoo. Make sure whatever your decide to use has no perfumes, chemicals or additives, natural is best :) Keep the tattoo relatively on the drier side but apply enough ointment/oil/butter until the tattoo feels moisturized. Do not put on another bandage.
2. After washing your hands, wash your tattoo area several times a day with soap and water, do not force any peeling skin off from the tattoo—gently pat dry/air dry. If you plan to work out, please wait a minimum of 5-7 days and immediately shower/clean directly after.
3. You should repeat this process for 2-3 weeks and continue to moisturize the tattoo daily. Wear natural fibers during the healing process and no clothing that’ll stick to your tattoo. Avoid swimming and the sun for about 2 weeks.
*** If your tattoo scabs a bit or develops hard layers, don’t worry it’s completely normal. But never pick, scratch, or peel it. You could get an infection or remove the ink. If you think your tattoo is infected, or isn’t healing properly, please email me and we’ll take it from there.
