What are your rates?
Half day (smaller tattoos, 1- 3 hours of tattoo time) - $600
Full day (larger tattoos, 4-6 hours) - $1,200 per day
The total cost of your tattoo will vary depending on the size and detail of your design.
- A good way to estimate how long a piece might take is to use (medium sized) hands as a measurement.
- A hand sized piece usually takes a half day session.
- A piece the size of two hands would require a full day, and so forth.
- Large pieces like full sleeves or back pieces take between 5-7 full day sessions depending on detail and background elements.
- Consultation before your appointment and correspondence during the design process
- Design of your tattoo
- Design review on tattoo day
- Stencil and application of tattoo
- Professional photograph of your finished tattoo
- Bandage (recoveryderm bandage available)
- Aftercare instructions
How can I book an appointment?
Please note my calendar is full for 2023 appointments. Books open October 14th for 2024 appointments.
An inquiry form will be live at the "Booking Form" link when booking periods open
I will be in touch via email with everyone who submits an inquiry, even if your project is not selected.
I only take on projects that are suited to my strengths and style of tattooing, so please keep in mind that submitting a booking request does not guarantee an appointment.
This is the only way I accept booking inquiries for new projects. Requests submitted outside of this process will not be considered.
Can I get on your waitlist?
I do not keep a waitlist or cancellation list for new appointments.
Please watch my instagram for updates on when the next booking period begins.
Do you do consultations?
I offer complementary in person consultations only after a project has been submitted during an open booking period, and I've accepted the project.
Consultations are done in person for local clients or over Zoom for clients outside of the Denver metro area and are booked online.
Consultations for pre-drawn designs are not required.
Do I need to pay a deposit?
I take a non refundable deposit to book your appointment which is due at the time of booking (generally during your consultation) and is payable in person or online. This deposit goes toward the cost of your piece on tattoo day.
Projects that are one full day or less - $100 deposit
Projects that are more than one full day - $200 deposit
Do you charge to design my tattoo?
The cost of designing the first draft of your tattoo is included in the half day or full day rate.
Because most tattoos take several hours to design before tattoo day, if you would like extensive changes that require your design to be completely redrawn, there is a $100 charge for additional drawing time.
Will I get to see my design before my appointment?
I do not send design proofs via email prior to appointments.
I build in extra time to each appointment to allow for discussion and small adjustments of your design on tattoo day if needed, which eliminates the time consuming back and forth of emails, and allows you to be part of the process while we finalize your piece of art together.
Can I get a tattoo if I'm not 18 yet?
Sorry, I do not tattoo anyone under the age of 18, even with parent consent.
Are there any tattoos you won't do?
I evaluate design proposals on an individual basis, and generally only take on projects within the subject matter and stylistic realm that I am best suited. I am not the right artist for every tattoo, so I don't accept every appointment request I receive. If I feel like your design idea is not something within my toolbox, I will happily help connect you with an artist who might be a better fit.
I will not consider requests for:
micro/single needle tattoos
designs that include script or lettering
tattoos on the face, inside of the finger, or the side/inside of the foot
replications of designs created by other artists
Do you do coverups?
However it's important to know that not all tattoos are good candidates for coverups.
Generally coverups need to be at least three times larger than the original tattoo, require multiple sessions, and require complete creative freedom with the new design.
If you have a tattoo you'd like to cover, please fill out an inquiry form and email 2-3 photos of your existing tattoo to firstname.lastname@example.org so we can discuss the best options for your piece.
What is your cancellation policy?
It's ok to reschedule your appointment. Life happens and tattoos happen when they are meant to.
Please give at least 48 hours notice if you need to cancel or reschedule.
If you need to reschedule your appointment, you will be offered my next available spot, which may be 3-6 months out as I fill my schedule to capacity during open booking.
Your deposit is valid for rescheduling one time.
If your appointment needs to be rescheduled more than once, your initial deposit will go toward administrative time and a new deposit will be required before a new date can be scheduled.
