UPDATE: I am taking a hiatus from tattooing and will not be booking any appointments for the foreseeable future. Please email me directly if you want to be placed on a waitlist for when my books open next.
THE TATTOO PROCESS
Fill out the booking form or email directly if the booking form feels inaccessible.
I will get back to you in 1-2 weeks. I tattoo Saturdays and appointment will be at 11am. I will make special exceptions if this day and time does not work.
Consult! The consult is usually 20 minutes, but can take as much time as necessary. It can be over email or over phone. In the consult we will: talk about your vision, talk about accessibility and needs for safety and book an appointment! You will etransfer me the 50$ 'design fee/deposit' before or after the consult.
If someone comes to me with a design that I perceive to be culturally appropriative I will refuse the tattoo, and will open to conversation about how/why it is appropriative. I hope for the potential of continuing our tattoo relationship by changing the design and coming to a place of understanding.
I will draw the design and will send it to you 4-7 days before our appointment, unless you need more time!
I will draw a rough draft, send it to you for feedback, edit it and then draw the final draft for our appointment. If more than 2 edits are needed, I will require an additional 50$ design fee. If an idea is given, but something different is decided after seeing the drawing I will also ask for a design fee.
Our tattoo appointment!
We will settle in and then place the stencil on your body. Please remember that this can take as much time as it needs to. The design needs to feel good on your body and I never want to rush that process. Before we begin tattooing I will ask if you want to set any intentions, hold a moment of silence, ground, etc. I feel it is important to start a session with some sort of intention, but it is not necessary!
Payment will happen after the session in cash or etransfer (cash preferred).
I charge 100-160$/hour. You can find info about my sliding scale here.
Ultraderm for 1-5 days. Usually 4 days is a great time.
Remove bandage. Removing it in the shower is easiest.
Wash with lukewarm water and unscented, natural soap (ie. dr. Bronners)
Begin moisturizing 1-2 times per day, with minimal amounts of moisturizer
RECOMMENDED: Aquaphor (can be found at Shopppers Drug Mart) or a non-scented, gentle cream/lotion
**Oil-based products are not the greatest
