(please read through info first)

most of my work takes the form of freehand pieces, which are drawn directly onto the body and take shape over the course of the session. The client always has input throughout the process. Freehand pieces are always based on patterns and motifs from my drawing portfolio, and can be composed to fit the body in unique ways.
FlasH designs are pre-drawn and ready to go, and we'll size and stencil the piece at the beginning of the session. I generally tattoo each flash design only once, but i'm always open to doing variations.
Custom pieces are designed ahead of time, based on your proposal. because custom pieces involve a lot of extra work on my part, I'm quite selective about which projects I take on.

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 at least two weeks prior to the appointment, tested negative within 48hrs of the appointment, and wearing a well-fitting n95 or kn95 mask for the duration of the appointment.

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. Each month, I offer a pay-what-you-can session for BIPOC.
for multi-session pieces, I offer day rates of $400-$500 per full day session. I also offer a $50 discount for returning clients who come back for a separate piece.
I tend to do highly detailed pieces with a lot of linework, which is time-intensive. Most pieces I do fall in the 3-4 hour range. time varies a lot based on the nature of the piece and its placement, and the exact price 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.
