Important Information

Thank you very much for your interest in my work. This page contains all the crucial information you need before setting up an appointment with me.

My Rates

$1,800 for a Full Day ($1000 Deposit required to book)

$1,000 for a Half Day ($400 Deposit required to book)


What is my artistic preference?

Japanese-influenced designs.

There are a few exceptions to this. So please feel free to reach out to me if you have an interesting project in mind, and we can discuss if we are the right fit for each other.


How far are you booked out?

On average, I am typically booked 4 to 6 months in advance. Cancellations do occur and I am sometimes able to provide a sooner appointment with short notice to those with greater flexibility.



Please DO NOT send any deposits until we have agreed on an appointment and design, as they are NOT REFUNDABLE under any circumstance.

Do I do Cover-ups?

I do cover-ups occasionally when working with large-scale designs. However, I determine what will and will not work best, based on your subject matter.

What's my availability?

I only do so many tattoos a year. Therefore a few requirements will have to be met for me to consider a new project. Please keep in mind that not every idea and design work for an excellent tattoo. But I am always happy to talk over your ideas with the hope we can come up with a design we will both be happy with.

Additional Information


  • Be aware that cover-ups will usually mean more time and consideration for the design. Thus resulting in more work. I always highly recommend laser treatments for darker or larger tattoos to be covered. I understand this will add to the overall expense and time of your new tattoo. However, considering this new tattoo will be an investment it should be done to its best, on both our ends, and it’s well worth it. Also, consider that I will not need the extra time to design your tattoo as a cover, and cover the old tattoo itself. You will save a good amount on your time with me. Not to mention the artistic sacrifices to your new design that may be needed to allow for an effective coverup. I suggest your old unwanted tattoo does not dictate the results of your new beautiful tattoo. I can recommend a few reputable people who exclusively work in tattoo removal if needed.


  • I work with 100% freedom to achieve the best tattoo possible using your ideas on the subject matter and my artistic abilities and style.  Please keep in mind, that some styles fit some designs better than others.

My Work

  • I ask first that you view my portfolio, and my social media accounts to see what I do for work… My colors, my style, my abilities, and so on. I do tattoos, but I do not tattoo anything and everything. Please do your homework and be familiar with my style. It takes trust and confidence to achieve the best tattoo experience possible. I do not tattoo lettering, Celtic, tribal, etc. I do not rework or add to old tattoos. Although I am open to working on old and new designs together for a visually cohesive design that feels good and natural to both the client and myself.

The Drawing

  • A percentage of my work is freehand and always custom. This means the design or part of the design is drawn directly on the skin, or based on sketches done beforehand. In this case, there won’t be any drawing shown before your appointment. If there was a sketch done, you will see it the day of the appointment as I tend to draw the final design the night before to keep things fresh in mind. For this reason, consults are extremely important to be sure we both know what to expect, have communicated fully, and have established trust. Please come prepared and know what you want, within reason.

Larger Tattoos

  • For larger work such as sleeves and back pieces, it is important to understand that it is a commitment both financially and of our time. Appointments are set every four to six weeks until the completion of your tattoo unless other arrangements have been made in advance. I recommend booking all your appointments at once to avoid ending up at the end of the list. Only one deposit is taken and will be carried over to each sitting until the completion of your design. This deposit will be credited towards your last and final payment or it may be rolled over to your next tattoo.

Smaller Tattoos

  • Smaller, one-sitting tattoos will be priced per piece and the price will be agreed upon before an appointment is made.
