I only take half day appointments (scheduled from 2-6 p.m.) and I charge $800 for a half day. If we need to go just a bit over time, I will often do that at no extra cost. If we decide it would help to have a couple of extra hours, we can spend that extra time for an extra $300. I require a $200 deposit to book. This will be applied to the cost of your tattoo.
As a shop owner with a family, I find this approach helps me give the exceptional client experience I want to give, not just as a tattooer, but throughout the shop. Keep in mind that as a high experienced tattoo artist, I work quickly and efficiently, usually able to get done in a half day what takes many tattooers a full day. I only do one appointment per day, so you can be sure you’ll get my full attention and creative energy for the day.
My rates are based on my industry experience and the effort I’ve put into honing processes to help make great tattoos every time. And, on my desire to make great tattooing accessible. Many artists with my experience charge more. As a shop owner, I have the flexibility to keep my rates competitive so I can work with people from all walks of life. Charging this amount also covers the costs for me to use the best-of-the-best inks and equipment and to provide an all-in-one experience. All said and done, this is art that will be on your body for life. When you invest in a tattoo from me, you’ll love it for life. If that sounds like a great investment, let’s make some great custom art for you.
