What is your hourly rate?
Price varies on size, placement, color or b&g as well as level of detail. My minimum is $100 ( no matter how small )and I typically charge $250 to $500 a session for larger pieces.
Where are you located?
I tattoo in San Diego . I will be relocating to a shop called Port Side Tattoo . 2523 morena blvd. San Diego, CA 92110
Do you do walk-ins?
I typically am booked out in advanced with 1-2 tattoos a day. These take up the majority of my day at work and I use the extra time in between to work on drawings for upcoming appointments. It is best to book an appointment so I can provide my full attention and am not rushing through your tattoo and can achieve a high-quality tattoo that you will love forever. Patience is key ❤
(Note: that being said, it doesn't hurt to ask as some days I do have an opening for smaller tattoos)
How do I book an appointment with you?
Fill out the contact form to the left! Please let me know in full detail what you would like to have tattooed. Size, placement (left, right, arm, legs, calf, bicep, etc.), color (bright colors, vintage, etc.), b&g(line work, dot work, etc.). If you have any references please attach these as well. Please let me know what days work best with your schedule.
All bookings do require a deposit of at least $100 for me to reserve your date. This can be done through PayPal or Venmo only. All deposits are non-refundable. Any cancellations, rescheduling, or if you are over 30 minutes late to your appointment, will result in loss of deposit.
Do you fix tattoos/cover-ups?
Yes I do. Please attach a CLEAR photo of your cover-up when filling out the Tattoo Inquiry Form. After you submit your form I will schedule a consultation day to discuss your cover-up design, and to take pictures in-person of your tattoo that needs to be fixed/covered up.
What if I don’t like my drawing?
You’re supposed to love your tattoo so if any minor changes need to be made the day of your appointment that is not a problem ❤️ It is my job to exceed your expectations for your tattoo. Please be familiar with my tattooing style beforehand. I can always schedule a day for you to see your drawing ahead of time in person to allow extra time if any changes need to be made.
If you do not set up a consultation day to view your drawing in person before your appointment, and I end up having to redraw the whole drawing, there will be an additional $50 charge (that does not go towards the payment of your tattoo). This charge offsets the timeslot lost from your appointment as well as the cost of me creating a whole new drawing. I would also have to reschedule your appointment date, and I do book out usually 2-3 months in advance.
I’m sorry I do not do finger tattoos.
Can I see my drawing?
Please let know ahead of time if you’d like to see your drawing . I will set up a consult date with you to view your drawing a day to 3 days before your appointment.
What if I change my mind about the design the day of?
I leave some padding for minor changes to your design the day of your appointment. For major changes, there will be an additional $50 charge that does not go towards the payment of your tattoo. This charge offsets the timeslot lost from your appointment as well as the cost of me creating a whole new drawing. I would also have to reschedule your appointment date, and I do book out usually 2-3 months in advance.
What should I do before my appointment?
Please eat a good meal before your appointment and wear proper clothing for me to access the area I will be tattooing.
Can I bring my kids?
I’m sorry no.
Can I bring my friend(s)?
You sure can. Just as long as they are respectful as other artists are working and sit next to you and not over my shoulder it’s totally fine! I only allow ONE friend to sit with you as there is not much space in my workstation.
How much are you going to charge me?
As long as you provide me all the information for your tattoo design I can give a estimate. This does not guarantee a price . I can give a better estimate once the drawing is completed. Tattoo prices vary on size, placement , color , or black and grey.
How can I book with you sooner?
As long as you are as descriptive as possible with your form and ready to leave an $100 deposit, I can book you on the earliest date my schedule allows. The more detail you provide, the less time we will spend emailing and the sooner we can get you into the shop!
What if I cancel/ reschedule/late?
Any cancelations or rescheduling WILL result in loss of deposit . If you are late more then 15 min without giving me a heads up it is a result in loss of deposit, you can DM on instagram to let me know if you are running late . If you are a returning client you are allowed to reschedule ( once ) but have to pay a additional $50 ( that does not go toward the payment of your tattoo ) to make up for time loss . If you are a new client rescheduling it will be loss of deposit.
