A consultation with your artist is a good way to start. Consultations are scheduled, in-person meetings where you discuss your tattoo idea, review reference materials, placement on the body, pricing and schedule dates. It’s also a good way to meet the tattoo artist and make sure that they will be the right fit for you to work with. Consultations generally take between 30-60 minutes depending on your design and we do not charge for this service.


We will collect a non-refundable, non-transferable deposit from you to reserve your tattoo appointment. The deposit gets applied to the cost of the tattoo at the final sitting. The deposit will be forfeited if you decide not to get tattooed, do not show up for your appointment, have excessive last minute reschedules or if you change your idea mid-process requiring new artwork and additional drawing time. Should you need to reschedule, we ask for a 48 hours notice to keep your deposit.


For your consultation, please bring prints, email us visual references or images you are attracted to. This will help explain your vision for the tattoo you want to get. A little homework up front on your part really helps us draw the tattoo of your dreams!
