TYPES OF WORK
the work i do falls into 3 general categories, with some overlap. FlasH designs are pre-drawn and ready to go, and we'll size and stencil the piece at the beginning of the session. Freehand pieces are drawn directly on your body with no stenciling. I generally tattoo each flash piece only once, but i'm open to doing variations of existing pieces. freehand pieces tend to be more on the abstract side, and can be drawn to fit your body in a way that flash pieces simply can't. Lastly, Custom pieces are designed ahead of time, based on your proposal for something that i'm interested in. Customs might be based on something I've done before on paper, or on previous tattoos i've done, or they could just be your own wild idea that you think would mesh well with my style. Most custom pieces involve some combination of stenciling and freehand.
I take a $50 deposit to secure your appointment. I'll give you the payment information VIA Email once you've submitted your booking form. This deposit is nonrefundable, but can be credited to a future date if you cancel with at least 48 hours notice.
my current rate is $75-$100 an hour, sliding scale. This means you decide what is affordable to you within that range. please don't abuse this system - 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. i can also negotiate lower rates for very large pieces, self-harm scar coverups, or coverups of tattoos by abusers.
I tend to do highly detailed pieces with a lot of linework, which takes a lot of time. You can expect most of my pieces to fall in the 2 to 3.5 hour range. the price of a piece will be determined after we finish, but i'll always give you my best estimate beforehand. My minimum charge for a single session is $100.
cash is preferred for the final payment.
