FAQ

HOW DO I BOOK AN APPOINTMENT FOR A TATTOO?

To book an appointment, please click the “BOOK AN APPOINTMENT” tab at the top of the page and follow the instructions to schedule your tatoo. I do NOT book tattoo appointments or answer tattoo questions via Phone, Twitter, Instagram, ect. All appointments are made through this site only! email consultations are free and a non-refundable $50 deposit is required when making an appointment that will applied towards the cost of your tattoo.

WHAT IS YOUR HOURLY RATE/MINIMUM?

My hourly rate is currently around $250/h with a minimum of $200 for smaller tattoos that take less than an hour (no matter how small the tattoo is). I am reasonable and try to work with everyones budget, so don’t be intimidated by the hourly rate, I dont charge by time, its an estimate, I will give you a price range for your tattoo that will be stayed in.

HOW CAN I PAY?

I do prefer cash, but credit is doable if cash is not possible. There is a small transaction fee for all credit card sales.

SHOULD I TIP?

Tips are always welcome.

CAN I BRING FRIENDS WITH ME?

Although I do understand that getting a tattoo is an exciting and sometimes scary experience, I do ask that every client limit themselves to 1 guest if necessary. Please keep in mind that there are other artists working and other customers getting tattooed so it’s polite to keep the noise to a minimum.

HOW OLD DO I HAVE TO BE TO GET TATTOOED?

In California the legal age is 18 – even with parental consent.

DO YOU TRAVEL TO DO TATTOOS?

I am currently based in Los Angeles. I do NOT do Tattoo Coneventions, periodically I do travel and tattoo in different cities. Please follow my twitter and other social media for the quickest and easiest way to find out when I will be somewhere near you.

HOW DO I TAKE CARE OF MY TATTOO?

Taking care of your tattoo is easy! Leave the bandage on for 2-3 hours or as recommended by me after I’ve tattooed you. Then, wash it with war/hot water and dial antibacterial soap suds in your hands. Let it dry for a whole day at least, 24 hours or more. Once or twice a day apply a very small amount of coco butter lotion (or aquafor whatever works best for your skin type) you want to make sure its a very small amount, you want to moisturize the skin and keep it from being too dry, do not over moisturize!

CAN I COME TO THE SHOP AND SAY HI??

Although I do appreciate the love and support, it is unfair to my clients and other costumers in the shop to be interrupted during their service. I wont be able to stop in the middle of a tattoo to chat, with that in mind please refrain from visiting the tattoo shop. Thank you!

WHERE CAN I SEND FAN MAIL?

I love to get fan mail! Please send letter or packages to the shop address. If you want a follow or tweet, include your twitter! If you want me to respond include a stamped return envelope!
