Q. What forms of payment do you accept?
I only accept cash, so please bring enough cash.
The nearest banks are located 5 blocks away, so they are a little far to get to by foot.
If you don't have enough cash, I do accept credit cards for the rest. Please note that a processing fee of 3.5% will be added to your total.
Q. How much do you estimate my tattoo will cost?
Starting from the Oct~Nov bookings, I will be changing my rates.
My new rate will be $1000 for the first hour, then $500 for every additional hour.
If you have already completed your booking, even if you are scheduled for October, I will charge you the previous rate of $500 per hour with a minimum of $1000
The final price may vary depending on the size and placement of the tattoo, the condition of your skin, and how detailed the piece is. On average, a small size pet portrait tattoo takes about 1.5 hours (1.0~2.5 hours). This depends on the color or pattern of the fur on your pet. A big size or full-body tattoo takes at least 2.5 hours.
Estimated times for flowers and other designs vary drastically, so please ask me about your specific ideas. :)
Q. How much should I tip?
You should tip just as you would at any other service industry, such as a restaurant or hair salon. There is no set rate, so you can tip however you see fit.😅 This is a really awkward question for me to answer but because I get asked this question so often, I can tell you that the industry standard is around 20%.
Q. How do you count the time you charge for?
I only charge for the tattoo time, and I do not count the time it takes to stencil the design, break times, etc. However, if the pre-tattoo steps including stenciling and preparing for your tattoo takes too long, please note that I may not be able to finish your tattoo during your allocated time, so you may have to reserve an additional session.
