How do I make an appointment?

All appointments should be made by emailing


To ensure the best possible service, please include as much info as possible in your email, including


1) your name and contact information,

2) as full a description of the tattoo you'd like to get as you can provide, including size, placement, color and style,

3) your budget,

4) reference photos, if you have any,

5) your general availability.


Once I have all this information, I can let you know how much time is needed and what we need to do to move forward. Generally the shop is booked a week or two out.


I’m able to take walk-ins on a first-come, first-serve basis during shop hours when I have no appointments scheduled. If you want to be sure to walk away with a tattoo, please schedule an appointment.

How much will my tattoo cost?

The price of every tattoo depends on size, placement, color, style, and budget—please make an appointment to discuss the details of your particular tattoo. To hold an appointment, I require a $40 deposit – this amount goes towards the price of the tattoo.

Do you do cover-ups?

Yes! I love doing cover-ups and am happy to help you replace an old tattoo with a new design. For all cover-ups, please make an appointment for a consultation or come in to the shop in person—I can’t provide designs without seeing your old tattoo in person, since cover-ups are based on how the tattoo looks on the body.

Can I bring a friend with me?

If you’d like to bring a friend to sit with you during your appointment, please do! There’s a couch in the shop where they can sit and chat with you as you get your tattoo.

If you’re bringing a friend who would also like to get a tattoo, keep in mind that I can’t guarantee time in the chair to anyone without an appointment. Sometimes we’re able to fit two tattoos in – if both are small—but if your friend wants to be sure to walk away with a finished tattoo, they should make an appointment.

Do you accept cards?

I accept cash and credit for both payment and tips. I don’t accept Venmo or any other payment apps.

When can I expect a sketch for my custom tattoo?

If you’re getting a custom tattoo, I will sketch up your design after your appointment is scheduled—usually, I’ll begin drawing about a week ahead of your appointment. If you want more time to think about the design, please schedule a 30 minute consultation where we can go over images together and I can make some rough sketches. I cannot provide detailed custom design work without an appointment and a $40 deposit.

What about touch ups?

My tattoos are guaranteed after the work is completely healed (usually around two to four weeks). If any spot has lightened up or any minor touch-ups on a tattoo I did for you are needed, please schedule an appointment for a touch-up free of charge.
