limited booking begins June 17th

Thanks for your interest in booking with me, and for your support and patience with the recent changes in my booking structure! My books are currently closed and I am not accepting requests for new tattoo appointments at this time. Limited booking for September appointments will begin on June 17th at 6 PM.

Like many tattoo artists, I am experiencing an increase in volume of booking inquiries after months of mandated closure due to the pandemic. Having my books closed most of the time and opening for only short windows is not the best method for me, so I am trying out a new way to accept new booking requests:

• Booking request submissions will be limited to 10 per week. (Request limit may change at my discretion.)
• The booking form will be reset every Thursday to allow new responses. Reopening times will be different each week to accommodate everyone's varied work schedules -

◦ June 17th at 6 PM
◦ June 24th at 10 AM
◦ July 1st at 2 PM
◦ July 8th at 8 PM
◦ July 15th at 6 PM

August appointments will be reserved for waitlisted people, flash tattoos, and pre-designed tattoos. Many artists define these terms differently, but for my work: flash tattoos = repeatable designs, available at a discounted flat rate; pre-designed tattoos = unique, non-repeatable designs, available at a discounted hourly rate. Pre-designed tattoos are a new thing that I haven't offered before!

More details on both custom tattoo booking, as well as flash and pre-designed tattoo booking, will be announced soon. Subscribe to the booking update mailing list to receive an email updates and reminders. I do not have a waitlist for new appointment requests.

If you already have a tattoo from me and want to book a touch-up appointment, you do not need to wait until books are open or fill out a booking request form. Please send me an email directly.
* The wait for a touch-up appointment is longer than normal right now. Availability is currently 4-6 weeks out. I am doing my best to accommodate by adding touch-up time slots, but demand is high as people start to emerge from quarantine. Thanks for understanding!
