I am currently booking appointments for May-July 2023. Accepting custom and flash inquiries.
Available flash designs can be found in the FLASH highlight on my Instagram.
Important note: : "Flash designs" refer only to drawings that are done by me, not by other artists. If you like one of my drawings but would like some changes/customization, please let me know in your booking form and I will be happy to discuss!
As always, thank you so much for your interest in my work and your continued support, I look forward to hearing from you!
Q: Covid-19 Protocols?
A: Hand washing/sanitizing are required immediately upon entry to the studio, and masks are optional at this time. If you are feeling unwell leading up to your appointment, please let me know and I will be happy to reschedule you. There is no penalty for late cancellations in the event that you are experiencing any symptoms. If you have come in contact with someone who has tested positive for Covid-19, please wear a mask at your appointment. Please do not bring any guests with you to your appointment, as we are limiting the number of people in the studio as much as possible.
Q: How can I book an appointment with you?
A: Please submit a consultation form if you would like to inquire about a pre-drawn flash design or a custom tattoo idea, and I will get back to you usually within a week or less. If you are inquiring while my books are closed I will likely still respond, it just might take me a bit longer to get back to you! Required information for any appointment or consultation booking is as follows:
Subject matter, size in inches, placement, colour or black and grey, and reference images.
Q: How can I book a consultation with you?
A: I do all consultations via email after receiving your consult form. If either of us feels that further discussion is required then we can go ahead and book you in for an in-person consultation at my studio. I do not offer phone consultations or Zoom consultations.
Q: What is your rate/pricing?
A: I have a minimum charge of $100, and otherwise pricing is dependent on the piece. Once I have received your consult form I will get back to you with a price quote.
For multi-session pieces/full day sessions, I typically charge a flat rate of $800 + tax per day.
Q: Deposit policy?
A: I require a non-refundable deposit to book an appointment. Deposits currently range from $50-$150 depending on the complexity of your design and number of sessions required. Your deposit covers the cost of one reschedule, and goes towards the overall cost of your tattoo.
If you need to reschedule for any reason please let me know a minimum of 72 hours in advance, otherwise the deposit may be forfeited and a new deposit of equal or greater value will be required to book back in.
Q: Where are you located?
A: I currently work out of a private studio near College and Bathurst in Toronto, Ontario. Due to the fact that I do not accept walk-ins, the address will only be provided once you are booked in.
Q: Do you tattoo people of all skin tones?
A: Yes! Some examples can be found in my portfolio (which I am always updating) as well as on my instagram page. If you're interested in one of my flash designs, but are worried the colours wont work well for you, I am always happy to adjust colour palettes/discuss options.
Q: Can I use numbing cream during my tattoo appointment?
A: Yes! I have no issue if you would like to use a topical numbing cream for your tattoo. HOWEVER you are responsible for applying it an adequate amount of time prior to your session - typically they need to sit on your skin, wrapped in saran wrap for 45 minutes to 1 hour. If you would like further instructions on how to achieve best results with numbing cream, please email me and I will give you an in-depth run down. The cream WILL NOT WORK if it is used improperly.
I personally recommend Zensa - which can be purchased over the counter at the pharmacy, or online/Amazon. I have also had some clients recommend Dr.Numb, which can be purchased online as well.
Q: Is there anything I need to do before my appointment/ in preparation for my session?
A: Please be sure to eat a good meal prior to your appointment - this will ensure your body has enough fuel to get you through your tattoo as comfortably as possible. It also never hurts to bring snacks/water if you are booked for a longer appointment.
I also recommend wearing comfortable clothing, and something that can easily expose the area we will be tattooing. Please do not wear something you would be devastated to get ink on.
Q: Are there any tattoos you do not feel comfortable doing/are unable to do?
A: If I do not feel that I am the right artist for your piece - whether it is due to placement, style, or subject - I will let you know. In general though, I DO NOT do anything geometric/ornamental, nor will I take on tattoos in the following placements: Fingers, behind the ear/neck, or face.
I do not specialize in cover-ups or fix-ups, however I am open to discussing your ideas and if it is something I feel confident in taking on, I will let you know.
Q: How do I take care of my tattoo / I lost the aftercare instruction sheet you gave me:
A: Please click here to be directed to my aftercare page!
