New Customers:
Getting tattooed is a big deal, so I appreciate you taking the time to read through my website and your interest in my work.

I understand if it's your first tattoo you may be nervous but hopefully excited also. So please read through the info on each of the pages that maybe relevant to you. 

The answer to any questions you may have, should be answered there.

I have prioritised easy access to all the helpful information to make the process less intimidating. It also enables me to dedicate more time to designing & drawing tattoos for upcoming appointments, rather than answering multiple emails from multiple sources.

I tattoo full time, so any e-mails, drawings etc is all done outside of business hours. So I do really appreciate an efficient attitude towards messages & booking.


Existing customers:

If you're starting a new tattoo project please get in touch with the relevant info so I can advise you on the length of tattoo session required.  

Or if you're carrying on with an existing piece & know how long to book for. Whenever you're ready please use the Deposits page to send the deposit if you don't have a rolling deposit and then E-Mail or DM me a list of dates suitable for yourself and how long you'd like to book for.
You'll really be speeding the whole process up & as a result get booked in quicker.

Below is a 5 step guide to the process of booking a tattoo appointment. 

I've found the process below to be the most efficient.

Most of these steps has it's own page, supplying more detail:


Consultations in person are much better, as they ensure we are on the same wave length & you can get booked in straight away if you wish. Otherwise we can successfully discuss your ideas via e-mail. Please include the relevant information in your correspondence.

3. Setting a date & time.

After writing your appointment in my diary I will message you with confirmation of the booking.

Short & Sweet version: no partying the night before, wear comfy clothes, make sure you've eaten a decent meal & brought sugary snacks with you. Remember nerves & excitement are normal.
