PRICE AND DEPOSIT POLICY
I usually price pieces by the hour but am happy to give an estimated quote once I have received your consultation form and all your information. However, please keep in mind that quoting tattoo time is not an exact science and it is only an ESTIMATE. Also consider that full sleeves and backs can take a lot of time. For example, a black & grey sleeve would take at least 20 hours on a small arm! If you can’t sit very well, have trouble healing, or you are a large person, it could be twice that or longer. A large amount of small intricate detail can also increase the amount of time needed for completion. This type of work is definitely a serious commitment and should be given serious thought before finalizing any scheduling and paying any deposits.
Deposit & Payments
Deposit is for tattoo appointment only, for the piece agreed upon, on the area of the body agreed upon, is completely non-refundable, and will be deducted off the overall cost of the tattoo. For tattoos that require more than one session, the deposit will NOT be deducted off the overall cost until the final/last appointment. Deposits are payable by PayPal or credit card via PayPal. Prepaying for appointments via PayPal or card will not be allowed. ONLY CASH will be accepted on the day of your appointment for any tattoo, aftercare, or merchandise payment.
In order to remain fair to those who are already on the waitlist, any major area/design/concept change will result in a forfeit of deposit at which time a new deposit will be required within 48 hours to hold any future appointments and to keep from being added back onto the waitlist.
If you need to reschedule or cancel, I require one week notice, otherwise deposit will be forfeited, and a new deposit will be required within 48 hours to prevent cancellation of future appointments if any are scheduled. If you no show (do not call or show up for an appointment) your deposit will be forfeited and a new deposit will be required within 48 hours to reschedule an appointment. Special considerations will be given for pregnancy and extended illness. In order to remain fair to those who are already on the waitlist, multiple or consecutive cancellations, reschedules, or no shows will result in forfeit of deposit, cancellation of future appointments and being added back to the wait list.
Right now I am scheduling ongoing clients out from 2 to 4 months in advance. As appointments become available, they will be offered first to ongoing clients and then to new clients that are on my wait list. Any cancellations will be offered in the same manner. Please refer to the Consultation Form to begin the process.
Multiple Ongoing Appointments
I strongly advise booking multiple sessions in advance as lapsing outside of 2 months between sessions will cause you to lose priority, be added back into the wait list, and may ultimately result in a lapse in coherence with the direction of your tattoo.
