All consultations are free and can be given in person, if requested, if you are located in the city that I am currently working in.
If we are not currently near each other, I will setup a time to call or create a google event so that we can have a video conference to talk about any tattoo work you may be interested in.
I require a deposit for all services and to secure a time for your tattoo work.
Your deposit is equal to 1 hour of tattoo time, which is my minimum charge. If you choose to cancel your appointment, the deposit is forfeited unless (within 72 hours of your tattoo) a new time has been selected for your tattoo.
If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to me via email or by calling/texting (208) 696-1828

Conditions and Terms
Here are some conditions that I believe all clients should understand before moving forward with any work. Read then completely and ask any questions necessary to ensure your complete understanding.Financial Terms:To plan time for your tattoo I need a deposit payment.By paying the deposit you automatically agree to what is laid out in this statement. This statement acts as a terms and conditions for our work together.
- The amount of this deposit is variable depending on the project and stated below.
- The deposit is going to be deducted from the last session of this project.
- Deposits are only refundable if the appointment is cancelled in writing at least 3 weeks in advance.
- Please always communicate any delay or other event that interferes with your appointment with me as soon as possible so I can accommodate your situation to my best ability.
- I don’t charge for digital design unless I have to do unusual redrawing due to problems that I didn’t cause.
- If we don’t end up tattooing because we can’t agree on a design, I will keep the deposit or appropriate part thereof as a design fee.
- In case of hourly payments, deposits are always deducted from the cost of the last session.
How you pay:
Hourly: Just pay $100-225/h, depending on location, for as long as your project will take. Cash is preferred but credit and debit can be accepted if we have previously discussed and agreed upon its use.Estimates on how many hours a piece will take are not binding. The nature of tattooing is not an exact science. By choosing this method everything will always be fair and square between us and you won’t need to have all the money ready to go. I only charge actual tattoo time and freehand drawing at $30/h stretch, smoke and toilet breaks are included.•
Full Price: A mutually agreed upon amount to be payed after completion of the first session. Cash or Bank Transfer (No PayPal)We will negotiate a full price for your piece after we have a design and I know your size and how excited I am about the design. As a rule of thumb, the bigger the piece and the more excited I am to do it, the better for you.Prepaying can save you significant amounts of money depending on the size of your piece and will provide peace of mind for both of us. By choosing this method we both are committed to finishing the piece as planned.
(These are based on more than 15 years of experience in how long I need to finish a tattoo) The prepay price is based on the time I usually spend on a piece and is always set lower than what I expect to earn by hourly rate.

I will treat you with all my trust, patience and respect if you are willing to do the same for me.Work on your design starts after we agree upon wants and needs, as well as potential outcomes and scheduling considerations. Any critique or input happens face to face at the times reserved for your project, only. I will not take critiques over social media or phone / text.You will have plenty of influence on your project during the design period(more than is usual) and we won’t start anything without your consent.
Once we start the process of your tattoo, I will tattoo and you will get tattooed. Trust is an important aspect of this process. I trust you to care for your tattoo and show up on the agreed upon times, you trust me to do quality work.I won’t make any changes to anything we agreed upon without consulting you unless you have explicitly given me this kind of creative freedom. I will do my best to explain my choices to you and ensure that you feel educated in the decisions being made.If you suggest changes mid-project I am not comfortable with for aesthetic or other reasons, I reserve the right to finish my work as planned (if possible) before implementing those changes to avoid regrets on both sides.
Of course, my main goal is to finish the project to YOUR satisfaction, but your trust and patience is necessary for our work together.To protect my privacy and creative freedom,
I reserve the right to pause or terminate the project should working with you become intolerable due to your neglect of any of the points in these Terms and Conditions.
