Consultations and Booking

All tattoo work requires some form of initial consultation. This can be as simple as a brief e-mail exchange, especially if you live a considerable distance away, but it’s always preferable to have a face-to-face consultation wherever possible.

Before committing to taking on a piece, I want to make sure I know as much as I need to about the subject matter, placement, rough sizing, if there’s anything I need to work around, etc. Moreover, I want to be sure that I can do the best job for you. I hope that the work displayed in the Portfolio section of this site gives you a good idea of the way I approach things and the kind of work I enjoy doing.

I give a fixed price for all ‘one-point’ or single sitting pieces and have a £70 minimum charge. For multiple session pieces, I work on an hourly rate of £70. All appointments require a £70 non-refundable deposit to secure.
