Q. What forms of payment do you accept?
I only accept cash, so please bring enough cash. (Venmo for deposit only)
The nearest banks are located 5 blocks away, so they are a little far to get to by foot.
Q. How much do you estimate my tattoo will cost?
My current rate is $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 2 hours (1~2.5 hours). This depends on the color or pattern of the fur on your pet. A big size or full-body tattoo takes at least 3 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 standard is around 18 to 20%. But again, there is no one-size-fits-all answer to this question.
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.
Q. I want to get additional tattoos, do I need to wait for the form to reopen?
No, I always prioritize return clients. If you would like additional tattoos, you don’t need to wait for the booking form to reopen, and you can email me anytime to schedule a date! I will try to squeeze you in if I am booked.
