FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How old do I have to be to get a tattoo?
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?
How much is the deposit?
Your deposit will come off of the total cost of your tattoo on your final session.
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!
Consultations at other times of day cannot be done. I apologize for any inconveniences this may cause.
What is your cancellation policy?
Do you tattoo hands, feet, and/or fingers?
I do not, due to poor healing on those body parts. 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?
Unfortunately I do not. However, Darcy is an amazing tattoo artist, and does amazing cover-ups! You can find him on Instagram here.
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?
Unfortunately I do not have time for walk-ins as I am fully booked months in advance.
What days/times do you tattoo?
This year, I am strictly tattooing from Mondays to Fridays, 11:30am - 7:00pm.
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 want to book a half sleeve! What do I do?
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. However, we have two amazing artists in our studio who would do an amazing job working with you on your smaller/simpler tattoos:
Will you continue work on another artist's piece?
Unfortunately I do not touch any existing work that was done by another artist.
