Deposit Policy

A tattoo deposit is paid after a consultation (online or face to face) with an artist to begin work on a tattoo design, and to hold a tattoo appointment thereafter. The amount of the deposit equal to one hour of the artist's hourly rate. (Hourly rates vary)

All tattoo deposits are non-refundable. 

Upon paying a deposit you acknowledge that you have communicated my tattoo design idea to the artist to your satisfaction, and have reviewed the artist's prior works to decide that the artist can implement my idea to your satisfaction. Our artists will not copy your reference images. I understand that creating a tattoo design based on a client's concept is subjective, and that variations may exist between my concept and the finished design. If the finished design is not to my liking, minor changes will be made at the artist's discretion. However, I understand that substantial changes to the design or the request of an entirely new drawing or draft will require a new deposit, and the original deposit will be forfeited as payment for the artist's drawing time.

No Drawings or drafts are sent to or otherwise previewed to clients before their scheduled appointment time.

A deposit will also be forfeited in full in the case of:

  • You do not appear for a tattoo appointment;

  • You cancel or reschedule an appointment without giving at least 48 hours notice;

  • You arrive more than 20 minutes late to a tattoo appointment;

  • You reschedule 3 or more times for any sessions of the same tattoo, regardless of notice;

  • You fail to reschedule a new appointment within 30 days of a cancelled appointment;

  • You arrive to a tattoo appointment without government-issued identification.

 

Billing Policy

I understand that I will be billed at the artist’s current hourly rate, starting at my scheduled appointment time, for all tattooing and tattooing related services, including, but not limited to:

  • Time used to edit or resize the tattoo design if needed;

  • Time used to apply tattoo stencils to the body;

  • Time used to assemble tattoo equipment and open sanitary supplies in front of me, or to replenish necessary supplies during the tattoo session;

  • All breaks during the tattoo appointment requested by me.

  • Lateness on my part of 10+ minutes for any reason.

  • Any touch-up work needed as a result of negligent aftercare of the tattoo, or any touch-up work requested 6 months or more after the initial application of the tattoo.
