Booking Process

Session Scheduling

Tattoo Submissions will always be announced through monthly newsletters and social media. It's highly encouraged to sign up in order to receive faster updates on scheduling a session. You can also gather more information on my process via the Q & A page.

Appointments are typically scheduled 3-5 weeks ahead and updates on any cancellations or rescheduled appointments are announced via newsletter.  Any Flash days or events will also be mentioned.



Tattoo Designs

Custom Tattoos - Drawn designs are designed with you present on the day of the tattoo appointment due to the intensity of my schedule.  Unfortunately, there are no exceptions that can be made to this at this time!

Flash Designs - design change requests can be asked for any flash work. You may request prior or during your session.

Cover Ups - They will only be accepted if I feel confident that the cover up can be executed. It depends on what you currently have and what you want to cover it up with. Please email directly for approvals.


Pricing

Hourly Rate: averages $250 CAD + HST (usually for larger projects)
I always charge between $50- $200 CAD to secure a session via e-transfer or paypal
I typically flat rate all my sessions depending on the size and placement you want!  That way you are informed about the overall cost and can be prepared for the final payment(s) the day of a session. 

  • The time starts from the moment the design discussion begins and includes drawing time and tattooing.
  • Final payments must be made in-person and on the same day of the tattoo session. 
  • If you would still like to tip I ask that you tip via cash!  Tips are dependent on the individual receiving the service (15-20% is accepted).

I offer a few sliding scale rate sessions each month for single black identifying mothers/parents only* with children under the age of 18! Please let me know via the booking form when applying.
