How do I schedule an appointment with you?
Where do you work?
I work in my private studio which is located in Fitzroy. I work by appointment only!
How much does it cost?
My tattoos are quoted by the individual piece, I don’t work with hour rates. The price always depend on size, details and placement. If you send me an email, I will reply with my price guide so you’ll have an idea of what the cost will look like. The minimum charge is $180. To avoid cancellations and changes with short notice, I request a deposit of $110 to book the appointment. This deposit is non refundable but can be used to reschedule the appointment if you advise with 48 hours notice. And the $110 deposit also covers my time preparing your design.
Do you tattoo men?
Of course! But I think due to the nature of my drawings my clients end up being mostly women.
Do you do commission pieces?
Yes. If you would like to have a design made by me and tattooed by someone else, get in touch via the booking page. Make sure your tattoo artist know that you have paid for your art.
Do you only tattoo designs made by you?
Yes, mostly. I have my own style and the creation process is also something I really enjoy. This is also an ethical issue, I don’t find appropriate to tattoo someone else’s illustration without their consent. Although if you like an illustration of a different artist and have paid a tattoo ticket (a fee that illustrators charge so you can tattoo their artworks), I am happy to tattoo if I feel that it fits my style.
What do I need to tell you about the design that I want to tattoo?
Please try to include on your email the size (so I can quote accordingly), placement (although this can change, it might affect the price as some places take more time and are more difficult to tattoo) and lots of information about the design. You can send me a lot of references (including mine), photos, phrases, any story that would help me to be inspired, anything!
When will I see my design?
Sometimes I will send a design via email so we can get approved before the appointment, but most times and specially if it’s a simple design you will only see it on the day of the appointment. There will always be time to adjust the design until you are happy with it.
Do you do retouches?
Yes, retouches are always free within 3 months of the first tattoo. Exceptions exists for tattoos on fingers and hands because these are places that will very much likely fade (so these retouches are charged). Retouches out of the 3 month window will also be charged.
How is your studio vegan?
I am vegan myself and only use products (soap, ink, etc) that were not tested on animals or have any animal products in it.
How to prepare for my tattoo?
Exciting!! It's very important to stay hydrated the days before (and after the tattoo). Eat well as your body needs to be nourished and you feel good for a smooth session. Please arrive on time and don't book any appointments straight after the session so we don't rush as I take my time to get your tattoo perfect! Wear comfy clothes for example if we are tattooing your leg don't come in a super tight jeans!
