I only take appointments by email. After initial email you will be contacted by email to continue to book a tattoo consultation.
I take the liberty to decline an appointment if the design is not what I am interested in tattooing. If I believe another artist is more suited to a certain style , I will then recommend you to other Sydney Tattoo studios. I thank you for the time in looking over my site .
From here on in, I am booking appointments 3/4 month blocks in advance. I run off a waiting list, at the end of each block I will email the people on the list letting them know of an availability. If you want to be added to this list, this is what is needed:
- Please email clearly your intended tattoo ideas for a design, size & placement. Familiarise yourself with my site & style of work. I don't do replications of tattoo's from magazines or the internet. I can use an idea as a basic platform to develop from. Inspiration can be from a photo, painting, song and so on.
- I set aside one hour for consultations. This consists of going through potential ideas. I spend the time to sketch out rough designs, working out the best combinations. I then do some more refined sketching, this gives you a firm idea of what you will be getting Tattooed on you.
- To proceed a deposit of $200 - $300 is required. If the design is a one off sitting a set price is given, otherwise an hourly rate applies to multiple sessions. I require this deposit before any finalised drawing process begins, and appointments made. Also, this deposit carries over until your final session, securing all of your appointments.
Failure to turn up or give 72 hours notice from the time of tattoo appointment will mean loss of funds. A new deposit is required to re-book. This is due to the fact I do mainly larger work and hard to find a replacement at short notice. Of course, special consideration is given to personal matters that do not allow an appointment to be kept. At the time of the booking in appointments I try to work best I can with your needs, as I understand the financial commitment of a Tattoo and the time needed to be taken off work.
I will give you a close time estimation as to how long your tattoo will take, generally within 1-3 hours of the time stated to complete the Tattoo, depending on its size. There are factors including skin type, how well you look after it during the healing process, and how well you sit during the Tattoo, and so on. This can all effect the time frame for completion. After over 20 years of tattooing, I work very productively and efficiently. I may charge a little more than some, but you get what you pay for.
