Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What is your deposit policy?

A: A deposit of $150 is required to book any and all appointments. This includes large scale projects with multiple appointments. If you have 4 separate sessions booked, a total of 4 deposits will be required. All deposits are non-refundable. No exceptions unless your appointment is cancelled by myself. This does not include reschedules. In most cases, your deposit can be transferred in case of a reschedule. Your deposit will never expire unless it's been forfeited during a second reschedule. ​

Q: What is your reschedule policy?

A: I require 7 days notice to transfer your deposit to a new appointment date. Please note that I do book very far in advance, so in the event that you must reschedule your appointment, you will most likely be waiting a MINIMUM of 4-6 months. If you need to reschedule a second time, your deposit will be forfeited and a new deposit must be placed regardless of how much notice was given. 

Q: Can I bring someone with me to my appointment?

A: My studio is in a small private space that can't accommodate many spectators. If you need a companion, please limit it to 1 person only. However, there are three restaurants in the building and many others close by for larger groups that come together.  Minors are not permitted in the studio.


Q: What is your touch up policy? 

A: A supply fee of $50 will be required to book a touchup. Anything longer than 30 minutes is not considered a touch up and will be charged accordingly. Anything older than 2 years is no longer in touch up territory. If you want to brighten up your tattoo, please email with a picture and I will give you a quote.​

Q: What is your artwork policy?

A: Any custom artwork required for your tattoo will only be seen on the day of your appointment. There are no previews of artwork before hand. Changes that need to be made will be made the day of before your appointment. If you absolutely must see the artwork before the dy of your appointment, we can schedule a time were you can come into the studio to see a rough idea/mockup of your piece.

​Q: Do you have any tattoo appointment tips?

A: Absolutely!

  • Do not drink alcohol the day before. Alcohol thins the blood and hangovers make tattoos much more painful. 

  • Try to get 8 hours of sleep before.

  • Be hydrated.

  • Keep caffeinated drinks to a minimum the day of.

  • Eat a substantial meal before your appointment.

  • A combo of Tylenol and Advil before your appointment can help take the edge off.

  • Bring sugary snacks and beverages to your appointment. 

  • Don't wear your best clothes. Sometimes tattooing can get a bit messy! If you're coming straight from work, perhaps bring a change of comfy clothes.

  • Bring things that give you comfort. Fuzzy socks, a cozy blanket, a pillow, a stress ball, etc.

  • Bring things that can help distract you. Your phone, a book, headphones, iPad, etc.

  • Communicate with me! If you need a break, need to stop or are feeling anxious/nervous about anything, let me know so we can work through it together. 


Q: What is your late policy?

A: Anything later than 30 minutes with no communication will be considered a no show. If you are running late or lost please email to let me know. If you communicate and I can't accommodate the time shift, I will transfer your deposit to a new appointment. If there is no communication, you will lose your deposit and will have to place a new one to book another appointment.​


Q: What is your Gift Card & Credits policy?

A: There are NO refunds on gift cards or prepaid amounts. Prepaid credits are not transferable. Prepaid credits are not the same as Gift Cards. Prepaid credits are from clients that send payments towards their future booked appointments and are put on file. These are non-refundable and non-transferable UNLESS your appointment(s) have been cancelled by myself. Gift Cards are released a few times a year and can be purchased as gifts for other people or yourself. Gift Cards are non-refundable but ARE transferrable. Credits and gift cards never expire. ​


Q: Who is Laura?

A: Laura is my amazing assistant and is who you are talking with via email 99% of the time. Laura does all the background magic of booking and calendar management.. That being said, interactions through FB and IG are me.​


Q: Do you tattoo minors?

A: No. My insurance does not cover minors.​


Q: Do you do coverups? Do you work on other artist's work?

A:Yes! I love coverups. In most cases, laser removal isn't required. Yes, I will rework or coverup another artist's work if it is in my wheelhouse. I will need to know who the artist is and the reasoning behind why you aren't returning to them.


 ​Q: Do you do trades?

A: Sometimes! Feel free to email and ask.


​Q: What methods of payment do you accept?

A: As of right now, I accept cash and e-transfer. ​​
