FAQ

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN TATTOOING?

I’ll be coming up on my 8th year in August 2023! I’m self taught, and spent a year and a half teaching myself before I ever touched needles to skin. It has been the most frustrating, yet rewarding experience of my life and can’t wait to see where it takes me!

CAN I MAKE AN APPOINTMENT NOW AND PAY THE DEPOSIT LATER?

Unfortunately no. I can’t make any appointments without a deposit in place! This secures your appointment slot & let’s me know you’re committed to getting it done. The deposit comes off of the total price after your tattoo is completed. 

DO YOU DO COVER UPS?

Typically I don’t tend to take on very many cover ups. Due to the light nature of my work, and the opacity of the shading and style, it tends to not work well for covering existing tattoos. But, I’m always willing to take a look and see what I can do! I can refer you to some other local artists who I know can execute it better than me!

DO YOU DO COLOR TATTOOS?

 I stick with just black and white! On occasion I’ll use red, but a quite frankly, I’m awful at color. You definitely don’t want me to do it 🥲

CAN YOU SKETCH ME SOMETHING SO I CAN SEE IF I LIKE IT?

Sorry! I only draw designs for clients with a deposit and appointment in place. I will draw the design closer to your appointment date. I will send it the day before for review, in which case minor changes can be made if needed. large alterations or design changes will result in loss of the appointment and deposit. 

CAN I GET MORE THAN ONE TATTOO DURING AN APPOINTMENT?

Absolutely! Time permitting of course. If you have more than one tattoo you’d like to get in one sitting, just let me know ahead of time so I can schedule accordingly! Sometimes it’s hard to fit another tattoo into your appointment later, when other people may have been scheduled after you and the time gets eaten up.

YOU CAN DO PIERCINGS TOO, RIGHT?

100% NO - where this comes from I’m not sure, but I definitely don’t have the stomach for that. BUT my best friend does them and she’s in the area as well! Find Kady at Black Cat Body Piercings 🐈‍⬛ 

CAN I BRING SOMEONE WITH ME?

I usually don’t mind a guest! Just let me know ahead of time and keep it to one person.


HOW LONG WILL MY SESSION TAKE?

Every tattoo is different, so if you’re curious on how long your appointment will take just shoot me a message and I’ll give you a time estimate! I like to think I’m fairly quick, but certain designs can take me longer than others.

I NEED A TOUCH UP, CAN YOU DO IT?

If I did the tattoo, I allow (1) free touch up session for up to one year after your tattoo is completed. Assuming there is no damage due to neglect or injury. If I didn’t do your tattoo, I’m happy to help if I can but will charge for services.

IS THERE A CANCELLATION LIST?

As of right now, I don’t have a list, but offer FIRST COME FIRST SERVE appointments when I have a cancellation or reschedule. I post these availabilities to my Instagram story, so turn on post notifications if you want to maybe get in early.

HOW CAN I PREPARE FOR MY APPOINTMENT?

A tattoo can really take a lot out of you. Make sure you eat a meal beforehand, bring a drink, get a good nights sleep and a shower. Try to refrain from heavy drinking the night before, as it can lower your pain threshold and make the whole experience miserable instead of exciting. Wear clothing suitable for where you are getting your tattoo. For example, shorts and sweatpants for a thigh tattoo; tank top for a shoulder tattoo etc.

If you have any questions I may not have highlighted here, go ahead and shoot me a message on Instagram or email me!
