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 Designs

All 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 $100. All pricing and custom designs are based on my hourly rate, which is $150/hour.

You can find all previous flash designs here on my website.


Custom Work 

To 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. 

Deposits for custom designs are $100, and non-refundable. Please be fully prepared to commit to your tattoo appointment before you book. 

Cover Ups 

Yes I am happy to do cover-ups! 
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 reileyej@gmail.com with your general availability to set up a consultation. 

Deposits 

All 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 and flash pieces, I ask for a $50 deposit to reserve the design.
For all custom work, I ask for a $100 deposit. Deposits for custom work are non-refundable. 

All deposits will be applied towards the final cost of your tattoo, with exceptions listed in Rescheduling and Cencellation section below. 

Payment 

All 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 Cancellations 

I 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, clients may reschedule twice for a single design. Upon requesting a third rescheduled appointment, they will be asked to place a new deposit. 

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.
