When you decide you want a tattoo, email me with your research ideas and pictures. I'll need to know where on your body you'd like it, and what size in cms. It's also helpful if you can send a couple of examples of my own work that you really like. We can then get together to discuss the final tattoo design if practical or we may be able to consult via email.


I don't have an hourly rate as I work quite fast so I tend to charge per pice for medium and small work, depending on size, location on the body and complexity of design. I have a day rate for ongoing large scale projects such as sleeves, backpieces etc when you book in consecutive day appointments.


Your deposit comes off the cost on the day, it's non refundable and can be paid via Paypal or as a bank transfer.

I do not embark on any drawings or designs until a deposit has been paid, I tend to do my drawings a couple of days before the appointment and will send it over then.


Changes and cancellations

If you contact me prior to 14 days before your appointment, I can re book you and your deposit will move to your next appointment. Change or cancellation within 14 days will forfeit your deposit.


In cash on the day.




In person or by post, payable in cash, Paypal or bank transfer.


You MUST be 18 to get tattooed, you will be asked for ID.
