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.

Tattoo Enquiry

Thank you for your interest.

For all tattoo enquiries, please email me at benshawtattoo@gmail.com with a few details about your idea including;

  • The main subject matter or theme. Briefly initially please – there’ll be opportunity to flesh the idea out in due course.
  • Placement, a rough idea of size, and if there are any other pieces to work around. It can help to attach a photo, especially if there are multiple pieces to work around. In the case of cover ups, it is essential that you attach a clear picture of the existing piece.
  • Your budget.

By all means attach images if it aids in your explanation, but only if it serves to support your written explanation (e.g. to provide an example of a specific flower, mythological creature, symbol, etc.). Please do not attach images of tattoos – I will not copy the style, content, layout, colour composition, or any other aspect of another artwork or tattoo.

I try to respond as quickly as possible to emails, I do check them a couple of times a week, but your patience is appreciated. Thank you.
