::: IMPORTANT NOTES :::
1. I will not copy other tattoo artist’s work. I prefer to create an original piece of art that we are both happy with. You may provide concept and reference images if you feel that they will be helpful in conveying your ideas.
2. I generally do not work with cover-ups, nor do I add on to existing tattoos from other artists. I am trying to avoid working on pieces that I do not feel will reflect me artistically.
::: RATES :::
1. Rates for appointments in Buffalo – I am taking new clients in Buffalo at a rate of $150 per hour. If I have already consulted with you or you are an existing client, your rate will remain the same for the duration of the project.
2. Rates for appointments at out of town shops – Due to the logistics behind traveling and working out of another shop, my rate for out of town appointments is $200 per hour. If I have already consulted with you or you are an existing client, your rate will remain the same for the duration of the project.
::: DEPOSITS :::
1. I request a $150 deposit at the time your first appointment is scheduled. The deposit will be applied towards your last session and is nonrefundable. This is to both hold your appointment and to cover the time and energy put in to preparing your image. If you do choose to cancel with appropriate notice, I cannot make guarantees as to how soon I can reschedule you.
(a) Appointments in Buffalo – If you change your mind about getting the tattoo or fail to show up for your appointment without a 48-hour notice, you will lose the deposit.
(b) Appointments at out of town shops – I cannot offer a refund for deposit made for an appointment during my travels.
::: APPOINTMENTS :::
I am available by appointment Tuesday through Saturday, starting bookings at 12pm. Please come on time.
You should budget time and money for multiple sessions. The length of time a tattoo takes to complete depends on the size, amount of detail and whether or not it is in color. I am not able to give an exact estimate for the time and/or cost of your tattoo. To give you an idea, a full sleeve can take as many as 30 hours to complete.
