How much will my tattoo cost?

Pricing depends on size, complexity and placement of the tattoo. Let me know if you have a budget and we can work with that!  My base pricing starts at:

  • $400 for a full day 6+ hours
  • $250 for a half day > 6 hours
  • $150 for flash designs (unless otherwise marked).
    • These are designs that I want to try and therefore I am offering them at a discounted rate. 
These prices are a starting point. Complexity and placement can increase the price. We will discuss the price before we schedule the tattoo so you know exactly what to expect. I don’t charge by the hour.
These prices are subject to change.

What do I need to do to schedule my tattoo?

I require a NON-REFUNDABLE deposit of 1/2 the total price of the tattoo, to book the day of your appointment. If you are wanting a consultation before booking the tattoo let me know in your message and I will give you a call! I will not start your design until the deposit is paid.

When will I see my design?

If I am creating a custom tattoo for you, you will see the design on the day of your appointment, we will sit and talk about it and make any adjustments if needed. If you are wanting a more hands on approach, there is a design fee of $300, I will send you the design 3 days before your appointment and we can do 2 rounds of revisions.

What do I need to know to be prepared for my appointment?

  • Be well rested (get enough sleep the night before)
  • Eat a hearty meal prior to your tattoo appointment
  • Drink lots of water and stay hydrated, both before, during, and after your appointment.
  • Shower before your appointment (and we promise we will too).
  • Don’t come in drunk or high.
  • Don’t apply any numbing agents or oily skin topicals before your appointment.
  • We will always shave the area being tattooed the day of. There is no need to shave the area beforehand as ingrown hairs and razorburn can cause unecessary issues.
  • PRO TIP: When you get to the shop for your appointment, please do not place any items on your tattoo artists’ tray. This is for cleanliness and sterility purposes. There will be a designated area for you to place your belongings.
