+ HOW DO I SUBMIT IN MY TATTOO IDEA?
I have decided I won't be opening or closing my books anymore. They will always be open, I will have updates in the bio on my instagram for which of the month I will be booking for.
You can submit in your tattoo ideas via email to email@example.com. Please include the following information:
These are the general requirements that will be required when submitting in your tattoo ideas:
- Full Name:
- Phone Number:
- Placement Idea (including photo of the area circled)
- Sizing in cm’s or inches
- Black & grey or little bit of colour
- Brief description of the tattoo idea (essays will be put aside)
- 2-3 Reference Photos
Due to a high volume of submissions, not all projects will be accepted. I can only accommodate to so many at a time. If I find the project does not suit my style, I will let you know via email.
+ MY PROJECT WAS ACCEPTED, NOW WHAT?
You will receive an email with further information on how to proceed with booking if your project is accepted along with an estimated quote where you will need to confirm if you are happy to move forward with the appointment. A deposit will be required to book and secure your spot within the booking period that I have available.
All consultations will be done via email, if needed a phone call/in-person consult can be booked.
+ WHEN WILL I RECEIVE MY DESIGN?
You will receive the design within 24 hours prior to your appointment. 3 free MINOR revisions are allowed, any additional would be $10 each. Any major redraws will be $25-$50 for any additional drawing time spent.
If you change the design completely, there will be an additional $75 design change fee (example, if you want a sunflower but suddenly decide to change it to a rose). This only accounts for designs that I have already started on.
+WHAT IS YOUR HOURLY RATE/HOW MUCH WILL MY TATTOO COST?
I charge per piece based on the sizing and details of the design. Even though I don’t charge an hourly rate, it usually falls under the $200+GST/hour or so. My minimum cost is $150+GST, no matter how small/simple the design may be.
I provide an estimated quote as it is always dependent on the sizing and complexity of the design. For larger projects that require full day sessions (7-8 hrs) or multiple sessions will be quoted at a daily flat rate.
+ HOW DO I BOOK A TOUCHUP ON MY EXISTING TATTOO?
Please take a photo of the tattoo and email it to me so I can see the severity of the touchup needed. Don’t worry if my books are closed, I will accommodate and make time for you!
It is $35 for a touchup fee that is less than 30 minutes. Anything longer than 30 minutes would be $50/hr for a touchup fee.
If proper aftercare was not followed, and your tattoo has faded significantly (excess sun exposure, lack of care at beach/pools of water etc) regular hourly rates will apply.
+ DO YOU TATTOO MINORS?
I will not tattoo a minor. You must be 18+, even with parental consent.
+ DO YOU HAVE A CANCELLATION/WAITLIST?
I do not have a cancellation/wait list. It can get too hectic and confusing on my end. It’s best to keep an eye out on my Instagram story for any last minute cancellations/reschedules.
+ WHAT ARE FLASH PIECES AND HOW DO I BOOK FOR ONE?
Flash pieces (also known as wanna-do's), are designs that are up for grabs to be tattooed. I will usually post them up on my instagram stories (@inkedwithco) for or posted up on my website to be claimed.
All flash pieces are not repeatable, and that's what makes them unique as you are the one and only with it!
A deposit is required to claim each piece which will have a flat rate cost, and then we proceed with the booking process once a deposit is received. Keep an eye out for further flash pieces on my social media.
+ WHAT FORMS OF PAYMENT DO YOU ACCEPT?I accept all forms of payments, but cash is preferred if possible.
+ DO YOU TIP YOUR TATTOO ARTIST?
Tips are never expected but always appreciated. Monetary tips are usually similar to what you would tip your hairstylist or other service provider. If you are very happy with the service and the results, and you want to show your appreciation, you can certainly tip your tattoo artist.
