"Do I need to pay a deposit?"
Yes. A non-refundable deposit of $100 will hold your appointment, which will be applied towards your total amount and if your tattoo if 100% detail hand drawn - 50% of the total price of your tattoo is required at least 3 weeks before your appointment (unless scheduled earlier, the details are to be discussed between artist and client).
"Can you draw me a custom artwork of my tattoo before I book an appointment?"
No unless it is paid for. The artwork is being worked on digitally once the appointment is booked with a deposit, and drawn with an original art per compensated request. Frequently returning/reliable clients are subject to exception.
"How do I need to prepare for my first tattoo?"
First and foremost, do not stress. Bring food and water/juice/soda for longer sessions - you don't want your blood sugar to lower causing you lightheaded feeling and potential faiting. Do not drink alcohol the night before your tattoo and do not plan to party hard for a few+ days after your session. Do not plan to swim or do a real heavy cardio workouts. Do not plan on tanning for a bit, let the tattoo heal well and safely. You will be provided with an aftercare sheet to guide you and a contact number for any questions and concerns. You are in great hands.
"I want an infinity symbol with a heart in the middle. Can you do it for $40 for me?"
No... but I'll get you contact with someone that will, Or just simply do NOT do it.
"I'm underage, but my parents are okay for me to get a tat. Will you do it for me?"
Both states - Illinois and Colorado allow such procedure. I will do it only when your parents are present at your tattoo session and have 2 documents with their identity proved in attendance of a notary.
"I have 100 of my local friends to spread the word. Can you do a free artwork for my band's cover?"
Oh absolutely! As a favor to be returned I'll just ask you to regulate my car payment for that month :)
"How long should I expect my artwork/portrait to be completed after my inquiry?"
Between 3 and 60 days after your 50% non-refundable deposit is paid. Depending only schedule. 3 is usually the earliest if I dont have anything else to do. Happens very...very rarely :)
"I don't have cash money now but need artwork now. Do you take credit cards?"
I do not at the moment. I do take Zelle and Venmo.
Any other questions?
Feel free to contact me any time, I'll be glad to answer your inquiry!
