PROCESS

I understand that getting a first tattoo can be an overwhelming process and you may have lots of questions. To make it simple and clear for my clients, I offer free one-on-one consultations where I will explain the process, pricing and answer any other questions.

 

Scheduling your tattoo appointments will require a £100 deposit for a full day, and £50 for a half day. This deposit will cover everything required to book your appointment, including drawing/design work. A credit equal to the booking fee will be applied to the last session of the tattoo.

 

For clients traveling, I can arrange long-distance consultations and booking fee payments via email if needed. I will explain the aftercare process with you and provide documentation to ensure you leave prepared. I also have in stock at the shop aftercare creams and products.

 

Please note I do not tattoo clients under 18 years of age.
