Our Process

We recommend researching which artist you would like to work with, and scheduling a consultation. You can find our artists’ portfolios right here on our website, as well as on Facebook and Instagram. Every artist has their strengths and preferred styles, though all our artists are very adaptable.

Some artists have longer waiting periods than others. For the most part our artists stay booked out around six months or more. Trust that the right artist is well worth the wait!

During your consultation we'll take detailed notes of your vision, as well as any photo examples you have. Then we give you recommendations on how best to translate your idea into a beautiful tattoo. We may also take photos and measurements of the location you’d like to be tattooed. Please be as clear and precise as possible! Tattoo designs require a large amount of time researching, planning, and sketching. It can take more time to prepare the design than the application of the tattoo itself, and we’d hate to invest hours into a design only to find out the client has changed ideas or failed to give us vital details. Be sure of what you want before you put your deposit down! Changes to the design concept after a drawing is started will also require a new deposit.

At the end of your consultation, we'll take a deposit and schedule your next appointment. Note that the deposit is not a payment for your artwork nor the consultation itself: The deposit is a down payment on your tattoo, and will come off the final cost upon completion. The deposit in nonrefundable and nontransferable.

If the design calls for a drawing in advance, we’ll show you your design, and if necessary also discuss alterations. With complex tattoos (sleeves, back pieces, etc.) we often schedule multiple drawing dates so we can discuss the design in stages. As you can imagine, large tattoos require a lot of planning so we need to ensure we’re on the right path every step of the way.

Do not be afraid to request changes to your drawing! We don’t want to put anything on you that you’re not completely in love with. Also please let us know in advance of your drawing consultation if you’re changing placement or content. Completely changing up the idea will result in the forfeiture of your deposit, since the artist has already invested a great deal of time into your project.

Call, text, email, or message us directly through our website if you would like to schedule an appointment. And as always, don't hesitate to ask questions!
