(please read through info first)

I work primarily from pre-drawn flash designs. you are welcome to pick flash in the studio, or to reserve a design ahead of time. I usually do each flash piece only once, but I'm open to repeating some designs with sufficient variation (e.g. placement, color vs black). I'm also open to taking requests for variations on previous works. I don't consider this a custom, so long as it's just iterating on something i've already been doing in my flash (to fit a certain placement, for example). Flash can always be adjusted on the spot, e.g. by sketching in an extension, or by reorienting distinct elements.
freehand pieces are drawn directly onto the body and take shape over the course of the session. The client always has input throughout the process. This process works best for simpler patterns within my style.
I create some designs by cutting up and rearranging elements of my existing drawings. These designs are filed under "modular flash" in my instagram highlights. These designs can be tattooed as they are, but they are also customizable by nature. i'm happy to tweak these designs on the spot to fit a placement, or create something semi-custom in this way.
by default my work is in black, but color can be applied to most stenciled pieces. with the exception of monochrome (single-color) work, I do need to know ahead of time if a piece will be in color and what palette will be used, so that I can be prepare adequately and map out the different colors of the design. I'm happy to incorporate color into freehand pieces as well, but only in monochrome. I have a "color concepts" highlight on my instagram, with examples of how i would apply color to various flash designs. please Note that color pieces do take significantly more time.

My Studio
I work in a private studio in Beacon, New York, in a mixed-use building populated mostly by other artists and craftspeople. The space is about 500 square feet, with large windows and abundant natural light. It's on the ground floor, so the Windows will be covered for privacy. The building has a wheelchair-accessible entrance, which is very close to my studio. Beacon can be reached by train from NEw York city, via the metro-north from grand central. My studio is 20-30 minute walk from the station.

To prevent the spread of COVID-19, I am requiring that my clients meet all the following criteria: fully vaccinated, boosted, and wearing a well-fitting n95 or kn95 mask for the duration of the appointment. A PCR test is appreciated by not required. Please reschedule if you are experiencing symptoms of COVID (or any other contagious illness). In order to limit the number of people in the studio at one time, my studiomate I and are not allowing guests when we are both working at the same time. please check in if you are hoping to bring someone.

Consent and comfort
Consent is at the core of my practice. Tattoos are permanent works of body modification, and the process of receiving one is intimate and physically straining. As such, tattooing is rife with potential for harm. I am committed to creating the best possible experience for my clients, and to respecting their boundaries at every step along the way. This means asking for verbal consent throughout the process, and frequently checking in on my clients' wellbeing. It's also important for clients to be prepared to advocate for themselves and communicate openly about what they want and need.

DEPOSITs and cancellations
I take a $100 deposit to secure your appointment, plus an additional drawing fee ($50-$100) for customs. The deposit counts towards the cost of your tattoo. These payments are non-refundable. however, if you reschedule with at least 72 hours' notice, your deposit can be credited to a future date. If you reschedule with at least 36 hours notice, half of your deposit can be credited to a future date. if you miss your appointment without giving any notice, You won't be able to book with me again.

my rate is $100-$150 an hour, sliding scale. This means you decide what is affordable to you within that range. i won't ask you to justify the rate you choose to pay, but please use your judgment. IF you can reasonably afford to pay a higher rate, doing so allows me to more easily accommodate those who cannot.
for multi-session pieces, I offer day rates of $400-$500 per full day session.
As a benchmark, my average piece takes 3-4 hours. the exact price range of a piece will be determined after we finish. However, I will never charge more than an agreed-upon Budget, even if the session takes longer than expected. Please include your budget in the Booking form, so that I can take that into account when planning your piece.
My minimum charge for a single session is $250.
