Ready to get tattooed??

Thank you! Just fill out my easy project request / online consult form below. 

When you get to the end, press submit.  

If you've already done this, we are talking in e-mails, text, etc. and I've accepted your project, click here to be redirected to the deposit page for the next step. If you have a gift certificate, that is your deposit.

All appointments require a deposit to secure your time slot.    

If no gift certificate or previous deposits are present, please wait to hear back from me before placing your deposit.  


The convenient form below can take the place of an in-person consult but if you prefer an in-person consultation, just indicate your choice under "consult preference".


Once you’re ready, you can review my availability and schedule your appointments below

Once you know your availability, we can easily find a day that works well for both of us!  Consultations are free, but to make a tattoo appointment you must have a deposit or gift card. 


If you still need to make your deposit, just follow the link below



We are all about mutual love and respect around here. Please feel free to indicate your pronouns. Do you prefer they/them? This is not required. If you are uncomfortable or not sure, that's okay! Just skip this.

Budget per Session
Budget* For every paid client tattoo, one tattoo is donated back to the community. This comes in the form of tattooed Medical ID badges donated to patients in need, gift certificates donated as school fundraiser raffle prizes, donated survivor tattoos, and ending hateful or gang-related tattoos by covering or removing them. Every paid tattoo suspends a tattoo for someone else in need. Thank you!
Preferred appointment time*
Let me know about your schedule here. I strongly suggest getting tattooed on your days off or right before a lot of days off

Deposit Policy Acceptance*
The minute the consultation has begun, our energy is being put into the work. Deposits are non-refundable. We value and respect our own time and appreciate the same consideration from our clients. Things that will forfeit your deposit and require a new deposit to be made include: arriving fifteen or more minutes late to an appointment without notice, canceling without 72 hours notice, or rescheduling more than three times between sessions that do not result in a physical tattoo. Completely changing a design will also forfeit a deposit at the artists discretion. Please be aware that our artists are booking months in advance. As soon as the deposit has been made and the idea shared, the work has started. Our mental and physical energy is valuable and your appreciation of that is accepted with immense gratitude. If any of this is not clear, please feel free to reach out with further questions before making your deposit. We do not provide refunds.

I find it is imperative to use a method that works for both of us. Since I'm committed to only doing one thing at a time, this method is what works best for me. If it also works well for you, then great! That means we can work together, and I look forward to it!

Thank you!

Keys to understanding the new and improved appointment-making process:

  • To provide focused, personal service for each individual, requests for tattoo appointments are not taken by phone or Facebook message. Instead, please use the easy form I've created here.
  • Include as much detail as possible in your request. Talk about placement, color palette, and stories inspiring the tattoo, etc. if you feel like it.
  • I will e-mail you back, and introduce myself, or re-introduce myself, we can talk about the details of your request, and you can attach pictures when you reply! Thank you!
  • If at any time I feel uncomfortable, confused, or unsure of what you're asking for, I may request further detail to your request to make sure I understand. We can e-mail it out, or if you prefer, I'll call you at the time of your choice.
  • Once I have an idea of whether your project will be single or multiple sessions, I can structure your personal appointment agenda complete with a projected cost per session.
  • I may pass on your request. Don't fret! This is usually because I either know an artist that will do a better job for you, because it's their "thing" not mine, or our schedules aren't aligning. I will place you with an artist friend that I would get tattooed by if I was asking for what you are asking for. It by no means defines your project as unacceptable or "uncool". I just want you to be eternally happy with your art.
  • Once we've talked, I've accepted your project, and you feel great about our plan, take the final necessary step and make your deposit below! The minimum deposit is $100 and can be made via this website through PayPal or using your debit/credit card. You can pre-pay up to $1.2K. All deposits are non-refundable. Please make sure you read and understand the Client-Artist Covenant (check your e-mail to see if you've received it) before making your deposit. By making your deposit you acknowledge and agree to hold sacred the Client-Artist Covenant. 
  • My apologies for the delay if you sent your request but have not heard back yet please let me know, [email protected]
