Policies and FAQ
Where are you based?I am currently based in Brooklyn, NY at Gristle Tattoo.
The shop is located at 55 Meadow St #106 (on the corner of Meadow & Bogart)
Flash DesignsAll flash designs are one and done. If a flash design that you like has already been claimed, or previously tattooed, I'm always happy to draw you up something similar!
Flash designs are priced at a flat rate which is based on size and level of detail. Sizing is flexible, and price point will adjust accordingly. My minimum is $150. All pricing and custom designs are based on my hourly rate, which is $200/hour.
If you are interested in resizing a flash design, please let me know ahead of time. Major resizing requests on the day of your appointment may result in rescheduling, or incur additional cost.
You can find all previous flash designs here on my website.
Custom WorkTo book a custom tattoo, please fill out my custom booking form or send me an email including your concept, placement ideas, and approximate size (in inches or centimeters), along with any reference images you are interested in incorporating.
I am no longer taking custom tattoo requests via dm. Please contact me through email, or through my booking form ONLY with your tattoo proposal.
I don't start drawing or designing until we've discussed design, placement, size, and availability, AND I have received your deposit. Please understand that requesting a change in placement for a design after a consultation may result in additional drawing time. For major changes, an additional deposit is required.
During booking, I will provide an estimated time-frame for your tattoo. For custom work, I charge an hourly rate of $200/hour. For large scale custom designs (back pieces, sleeves, multi-session pieces, etc.), I offer a discounted rate of $150/hour.
Deposits for custom designs are $100. Large scale pieces (all day, and two session tattoos) will require a $250 deposit. All deposits for custom work are non-refundable. Please be fully prepared to commit to your tattoo appointment before you book.
Cover UpsYes, I am happy to do cover-ups, on a case by case basis.
For all cover up tattoos, I require an in person consultation in order to see the original tattoo, take measurements, and discuss ideas. Please email me at email@example.com with your general availability to set up a consultation.
DepositsAll deposits must be placed through venmo or paypal.
If you are placing a deposit through venmo, please include your preferred appointment date and time in the memo section, with no additional text.
If you are placing your deposit through paypal, please ensure that it is being sent under the "friends and family" category.
For pre-drawn designs, flash pieces, and small scale custom work I ask for a $100 deposit to reserve the design and hold your appointment time.
Large-scale custom projects (multiple session pieces) require a $250 deposit, which will be applied towards our last session.
All deposits for custom work are non-refundable.
All deposits will be applied towards the final cost of your tattoo (exceptions listed in Rescheduling and Cancellation section below).
PaymentAll deposits must be placed through venmo or paypal.
For the remaining tattoo balance I accept cash, venmo, paypal, and card. All payments made with card will be taxed.
Currently NO zelle, cashapp, or apple pay.
Cash or venmo is preferred.
Rescheduling and CancellationsI require a 24 hour cancelation notice before the day of your appointment or your deposit is forfeit.
However, I understand that life happens. If you need to reschedule due to an emergency, please do not hesitate to reach out! Barring an emergency, all clients have one courtesy reschedule for a single appointment. Upon requesting a second rescheduled appointment, you will forfeit your original deposit, and be asked to place a new one.
If you are going to be more than 30 minutes late to your appointment, I ask that you reach out to let me know. You can contact me through email, instagram, or call in to the shop (347.542.4897).
Clients who are more than 30 minutes late who do not reach out will be treated at no shows, and forfeit their deposit.
