Q: WHAT WOULD YOU SAY YOUR FAVORITE STYLE OF TATTOOING IS?
A: I like tattooing in a variety of styles. I would say photo realism is not my most favorite. With that being said, I like neo-traditional, Japanese style or anime themed most if I had to pick any.
Q: I'M FROM OUT OF TOWN AND I'LL BE IN AUSTIN. WILL YOU BE ABLE TO TATTOO ME?
A: I love tattooing people from out of town and I can't say how much it means to have people reach out to show their appreciation. Unfortunately I tend to stay booked 1-2 months ahead. Please contact me a month or two in advanced, so we can plan accordingly and tattoo you!
Q: HOW DO I GO ABOUT SCHEDULING A TATTOO APPOINTMENT?
A: After an initial e-mail introduction, we can pick out a date to meet at the shop and have a consultation. We can discuss your idea in detail and look over reference images (if any) We will have you fill out a deposit slip, make a deposit payment, (which goes towards the cost of the tattoo) and pick out an appointment time and date.
Q: WHY IS A DEPOSIT NEEDED?
A: The deposit is used to lock in your appointment date. As tattoo artists we don't get paid hourly, we get paid for the work we do in a day. If there was no deposit and we spend X amount of hours working on a drawing for a client and the client doesn't show up on the appointment date. We don't make money for the day and we use up time on a drawing that is not going to get used. :(
Q: CAN I SEE MY DESIGN BEFORE MY APPOINTMENT DATE?
A: Your design will be ready on the date of your appointment. I rarely have revisions requested. If you are from out of town I can make an exception, due to the inconvenience of distance.
Q: HOW LONG WILL MY TATTOO TAKE?
A: The amount of time required will depend on the complexity of the tattoo, the size of the tattoo, color vs black & grey, amount of detail, etc.
Q: HOW MUCH IS MY TATTOO GOING TO COST?
A: I charge an hourly rate. We will know once your tattoo is finished.
