FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS & ANSWERS
Here are some questions and answers to help you get a feel for my work process. These are the questions that I am most asked when consulting with new clients. If you have any questions that I haven't addressed below please feel free to ask here. Thank you so much for you interest! I look forward to collaborating with you...
Q What is the best way to contact you about getting a tattoo?
The fastest way is to e-mail me through my website, or if you'd prefer you can call the studio at 941.955.6246. Because I am most often tattooing when I am in the studio and not available to talk, it is best to e-mail me with your contact info or call to set up a consultation if you'd like to talk about your tattoo ideas. That being said, please visit the gallery and studio whenever you are in the area and check out our constantly revolving art collection and artists' portfolios, and setup a consultation then if you'd like.
Q What should I bring to a consultation?
You should bring any visual reference you have or can find to help me get a sense of what type of tattoo design you are envisioning for yourself, including photographs, artwork, etc. The better you can describe to me what you are envisioning, the better I can design what you want. If your vision is not totally clear or you are open to my input you don't necessarily need to bring any reference, but if you have it, it helps. In order to set tattoo appointments I require a deposit, most often $125, but for larger pieces like sleeves and back pieces from $250-$500. This deposit comes out of the price of the tattoo, so that the last hour or several hours is paid for upfront, and is collected at the initial consultation.
Q How quickly can I get my tattoo?
I generally stay booked out 4-6 weeks, so if you'd like to get tattooed on a particular date or timeframe, please contact me with appropriate time for scheduling. Due to cancelations and scheduling changes I can sometimes get you in sooner, so do always check if you're interested.
Q How much do you charge?
My rate is $125/hour with a 2 hour minimum. Time is based on actual tattoo time; there is no charge for setup, breaks or drawing time.
Q Is there any additional fee for designing a custom tattoo for me?
There is no drawing or designing fee for custom original tattoos. Designing fees are included in the hourly rate. However, before I begin drawing your design I will need to collect a deposit that will eventually be deducted from the total price of your tattoo. This deposit is generally $125, but for larger projects like sleeves and back pieces it can range from $250-$500.
Q How should I heal my new tattoo?
You can find general healing and tattoo care guidelines here.
