FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

How old do I have to be to get a tattoo?


18 years old. No exceptions; not even with parental consent.




Where are you located?


I am a resident artist located in a private studio in the Pandosy Village of Kelowna, BC. Once you have a booking in place, you will receive the address via email!




What are your rates?


$180/hour * this price does not include taxes




How much is the deposit?


Your deposit will come off of the total cost of your tattoo on your final session. Hand-sized to quarter sleeves:
$105 Half sleeves: $210 Full sleeves: $315




Is my deposit refundable?


No, your deposit is non-refundable. A non-refundable deposit must be put down in order to book your appointment. When you book an appointment, a select number of hours is reserved just for you. If you choose to cancel, no-show, or let us know less than 72 hours prior to your appointment, your deposit is forfeited. You will have to put down another if you choose to book again.




When do you have consultations? How much are they?


They are 100% free! They can take anywhere from 5-20 minutes depending on how much you want to talk about! This year, I am only doing three consultations a day, Monday through Friday. The available timeslots will be: 10:00am, 10:30am, and 11:00am
Consultations at other times of day cannot be done. I apologize for any inconveniences this may cause.




What is your cancellation policy?


You have 48 hours prior to your appointment to move your spot to a later date to keep your deposit valid. If you choose to completely cancel, your deposit is non-refundable. If you tell us less than 48 hours prior to your appointment, your deposit will be forfeited and you will be required to put down another deposit if you want to re-book. This means that if you place a $315 deposit, but decide to cancel too close to your appointment date, your entire $315 will be forfeited, and you will have to place another $315. Your tattoo would then only count towards that single deposit amount-- not both.




Do you tattoo hands, feet, and/or fingers?


I do not, no exceptions.




If I bring in a photo of a tattoo I found on the internet, can I get the exact same one tattooed?


I will not replicate another artists' work due to copyright. However, I will gladly design a custom tattoo just for you. This is cooler anyway; you'll have your own unique tattoo that no one else has! You can/should definitely still bring in reference photos of tattoos you like from the Internet/Instagram/Pinterest to give me ideas.




Do you tattoo cover-ups?


It completely depends on what you are wanting to cover. Most of the time my style does not work as a cover up, but a consultation would be necessary to see!




Do you only tattoo blackwork and dotwork?


Yes! I am no longer tattooing colour or any other styles of tattoo.




Do you do walk-ins?


I work by appointment only at this studio. I will occassionally do flash days (pre-drawn designs) and will be posting about them in my instagram when the dates are picked!




What days/times do you tattoo?


This year, I am strictly tattooing from Tuesdays to Fridays. I am only tattooing one person a day (3 hour sessions), so start times can be negotiated.




I want to book a full sleeve! What do I do?


Full sleeves require a non-refundable $315 deposit in order to book. The deposit comes off of the total cost of the tattoo, but not until your last session. I will also require a free consultation prior to booking your actual appointment. I require a full day booking for sleeves, which means I need a full day commitment from you. The appointment will begin at 11:30am, and end sometime around 7:00pm. We need time for working on your design together, stencilling, breaks, etc. But don't worry, you will only be paying for the time that you are actually getting tattooed-- not the entire day. Lastly, it is required that you e-mail us a photo of the body part you would like to get tattooed. It is best if someone else takes the photo for you, to prevent distortion.




I want to book a half sleeve! What do I do?


Half sleeves require a non-refundable $210 deposit in order to book. The deposit comes off of the total cost of the tattoo, but not until your last session. I will also require a free consultation prior to booking your actual appointment. I require a full day booking for half sleeves, which means I need a full day commitment from you. The appointment will begin at 11:30am, and end any time around 5:00 - 7:00pm depending on your design. We need time for working on your design together, stencilling, breaks, etc. But don't worry, you will only be paying for the time that you are actually getting tattooed-- not the entire day. Lastly, it is required that you e-mail us a photo of the body part you would like to get tattooed. It is best if someone else takes the photo for you, to prevent distortion.




Do you do script/small tattoos?


Due to overwhelming demand, I am looking to focus my 2019 projects on larger scale / intricate dotwork pieces to build up my portfolio.




Will you continue work on another artist's piece?


Unfortunately I do not touch any existing work that was done by another artist.




What happens if I no-show / miss my appointment?


We are not responsible for you forgetting about an appointment. You have 72 hours prior to your appointment to move your spot to a later date to keep your deposit valid. If you no-show or miss your appointment without the 72 hour notice, your deposit is non-refundable. If you tell us less than 72 hours prior to your appointment, your deposit will be forfeited and you will be required to put down another deposit if you want to re-book. This means that if you place a $315 deposit, but decide to cancel too close to your appointment date, your entire $315 will be forfeited, and you will have to place another $315. Your tattoo would then only count towards that single deposit amount-- not both.
