How do I book in for a tattoo?

If you would like to make an enquiry or book in for a tattoo please contact me via the contact form. Please fill out the form with as much information as possible, the form also gives the option to attach any images for me to use as a reference. I endeavour to reply within 5 days unless I am usually on holiday which I announce on my facebook page

 

Do you design my tattoo?

All designs are custom drawn for you once an appointment has been secured with a booking fee. Designs are drawn up for the day of your appointment.  When you arrive at your appointment you will see your design have a chance to make changes if you wish to. 

 

Will you cover up an existing tattoo?

I do cover up existing tattoos, however, this depends on the size, age and what you are looking to cover up. and what you would like to cover it with. When filling out the contact form please attach a photo of your tattoo.

 

How do I pay the booking fee?

A booking fee acts to reserve the time for your appointment as well as payment towards your tattoo. You will be sent an invoice by email once a time and date is agreed with a link to make a payment online. A booking fee is non-refundable. Deposits are carried over until the tattoo is completed.

 

What if I need to rearrange my appointment?

Rearranging an appointment is dealt with on a case by case basis. If you need to rearrange your appointment with good notice I may be able to change your slot subject to availability.  

 

How much do you charge?

I try to give set prices per tattoo where possible. The minimum charge for a Tattoo is £40. My hourly rate is £70 per hour and for a full day sitting £350.

 

How can I pay for my tattoo on the day?

There is a card machine in the studio, so you can pay by card, apple pay or cash.

 

How can I prepare for my tattoo?

  • Bring surgery snacks or drinks with your appointment. It is important that you eat before getting tattooed. By eating beforehand it ensures your blood sugar levels aren’t low and reduces the risk of feeling faint or dizzy.
  • Make something that your clothing is comfortable and don’t wear anything you wouldn’t want to get ink stains on as tattooing can get messy.
  • Before getting tattooed please don’t go out partying the night before, and there really is nothing worse than getting tattooed on a hangover!
  • It is against the law to tattoo person’s under the age of 18. Bring photo ID with you to your appointment.

 

I’m going on holiday or I’ve just come back from a holiday, should I wait to get tattooed?

It’s advised to wait around 2-3 weeks until exposing your new tattoo to the sun, so it’s best to allow ample time for your tattoo to heal before going on a holiday in a warmer climate. If you are sunburnt or excessively tanned you won’t be able to be tattooed until your skin has recovered so please bear that in mind when booking a tattoo after a holiday.

 

Are the tattoo inks you use vegan?

Most of the products I use before, during and after the tattoo process are vegan. Click here find out more about vegan tattooing.
