Deposit Policy

  • I take a one hour deposit for all tattoos: $225 or $250 for coverup/scar/fixup work. 
  • Deposits are not refundable.
  • Deposits come out of the FINAL price of the tattoo. Your deposit is redeemed when your tattoo is finished. If your tattoo takes multiple sessions, the deposit comes out of the final session.  
  • If you need to move, cancel, or change your appointment, I will honor your deposit as long as you give me AT LEAST 72 hours notice. If you fail to give me 72 hours notice, you will forfeit your deposit. If you fail to give 24 hours notice, you will be responsible to pay the full balance for the appointment before I will work on you again. ($225/250.) This policy is strict! I only take one client daily. It is very difficult to get someone else in the spot without more than 24 hours notice. I do have a waiting list and, with adequate notice, I am usually able to fill cancellations. However without proper notice, it ends up being a day without income for me.
  • ONE MORE TIME: If you cancel within 24 hours of your appointment or no-show to the appointment, you must pay for the entire 2 hour sitting or forfeit the rest of your sittings. I only take one client daily, if you don't show up I have no income that day! 
  • If you change your idea significantly within 72 hours of your scheduled appointment, I will require a second deposit to compensate for time spent drawing. All design "idea" changes must be made prior to 72 hours before the first appointment.
  • If you use a Gift Certificate, it will be used towards the deposit. If you do not provide proper notice to reschedule or do not show up for your appointment, the above guidelines apply to your Gift Certificate. 
This policy is meant to ensure that you are as dedicated to the completion of your tattoo as I am, and that you maintain a line of communication with me even as your schedule and finances dictate availability. I take deposits for my security. I also take deposits to compensate for my time consulting, corresponding, and drawing in the event you decide not to get tattooed or change your idea. 
  • Please be on time. If you are more than 20 minutes late for your scheduled time without prior approval by me, you will forfeit your deposit.
  • Once you lose your deposit you will be required to give a new deposit before I will reschedule your appointment or for you to retain your remaining scheduled appointments. If you decide not to continue with the planned tattoo, you will lose the deposit.
Thank you for your consideration!
