Frequently Asked Questions
Here’s the scoop
If you have questions that are not answered here. Shoot me an email email@example.com
where do you tattoo?
I am currently building out a private studio in Ballston Spa, New York. I also travel to New Orleans often, as well as national and international tattoo conventions and guest spots.
How Do I Set up an appointment?
Please fill out the consultation form on the Contact Page. I will email you back.
Do You Require a Retainer/Deposit?
I do. Retainers/Deposits are for the agreed project and are non-refundable. It is not an extra fee. The Retainer/Deposit is applied to the final session of your tattoo. Deposits will be forfeited for no call no shows. (Which I hate doing, so please, let’s no waste each other’s time.) Smaller projects require a $100 deposit. Larger projects require $200-500, depending on the size.
what do you charge?
$200 per hour or $1000 flat rate for the day (6-8 hours) and my minimum is $100.
what do you recommend for aftercare?
I recommend you remove your bandage after at least one hour. Then clean gently with a basic fragrance free soap, examples would be Dial or Ivory. Rinse and blot dry with a new paper towel. Then apply a minimal amount of Gold Bond Ultimate Healing Lotion with Aloe. Repeat 3 to 5 times daily.
will you remake Someone else's tattoo on me?
The short answer is NO. I think my clients deserve to have a custom piece drawn and tattooed on them. I am happy to use any reference images you have found as inspiration, but would much prefer to make you something original. You deserve it. That being said I do make exceptions. For example, I would do my best to recreate a deceased relatives tattoo, for you.
do you accept tips?
I never expect to be tipped, however I always appreciate it. I accept tips in the form of Diet Coke, Size 11 Nike's or Cash.
