READ BEFORE SCHEDULING

Pricing Information

My hourly rate is $125. However, depending on the size, placement and style of the design, I may charge by the piece to save my clients money.

I do not tolerate haggling or complaining about pricing. This is not a tattoo auction and we are not making a deal. You are requesting my services and will receive them at a set price. My prices reflect my time, effort, creativity, and the overall value of my artwork. If you are not willing to afford me, then you are not willing to afford my artwork. I do not owe nor will I give anyone favors.

My Artwork Style

I specialize in fine line work and lettering with a focus on cyber sigilism / cyber tribal, Neotribal, Dark ornamental style, and Macabre inspired dark art.

I stick primarily within the realms of black and gray with the use of white ink highlights but I do dabble in color occasionally. My artwork draws very heavy influences from the death & mourning etiquette of New England’s Victorian past times. For example, if you are looking for a full-color tattoo or something not within the realm of my portfolio, I may not be the artist suitable for your desired tattoo.

What if I just want you to draw it before I decide to get the tattoo?

a $60 booking fee is due at the time of your request. This amount is NOT deducted from your tattoo and gives you rights to the completed artwork.

How old do you have to be to get a tattoo?

Tennessee State Law prohibits tattooing clients under the age of 18, even with parental consent.

What information do I need to schedule an appointment?

  • Description of the tattoo design
  • Approximate size/dimensions or a picture with location circled on the body with a quarter in the photo for reference
  • Placement (which body part and where)
  • Reference images (I will not copy an exact image, but use as a reference point of what you like visually in terms of style, color, coverage, etc)
  • Preferred dates and times for your appointment
  • A contact number I can reach you
Please note that if your email does not include the information below it may not be considered for scheduling.

Under no circumstances are children under 18 allowed in the tattoo areas this includes infants and toddlers.

DO NOT BRING CHILDREN TO THE SHOP FOR ANY REASON UNLESS THEY ARE GETTING A PIERCING. If they are, DO NOT BRING THEIR SIBLINGS.

Tattoo shops are not suitable places for children and my shop is unsafe for children. It is meant to cater to adults.

DO NOT bring your child inside to schedule. DO NOT bring your child with you to ask questions. DO NOT bring your child to your appointment and DO NOT ASK FOR ANY EXCEPTIONS.

Some of us are parents and do not come to work to hear your child scream or clean up after them.

What if I'm late or forgot my appointment?

Please remember your appointment date and time. I am not responsible if you miss your appointment nor is it my job to call you.

I reserve the right to cancel or apply a $25 late fee to your appointment(s) if you are more than 15 minutes late!!

We are more than happy to reschedule if our books are open. Please note that a $25 inconvenience fee will be added to all appointments that are rescheduled less than 24 hours prior to the original appointment.

I can't make my appointment, can I get a refund?

All deposits are NON-REFUNDABLE, no exceptions. Your deposit is meant to cover my time not only creating your artwork, but also if you do not show up and I cannot replace your spot.

WARNING

DO NOT COME TO MY PLACE OF BUSINESS TO FLIRT WITH ME, DROOL OVER ME, DISRESPECT ME, OR GIVE ME GOOGLY EYES. I am not interested and will ask another artist in the shop to service you or we will ask you to leave.
