Deposit Policy

  • I take a one hour deposit for all tattoos: $200 or $225 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. Because sittings are 2 hours long, your last hour of your last sitting will be "free."  
  • 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. 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 unless I keep the deposit. 
  • 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, $200 or $225 of the Gift Certificate will be void.
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!
