"Where are you located and what are your hours?"
I work out of my private studio : Sacred Space Tattoo Studio, 8050 Easton Rd, Ottsville PA 18942
"What are your available hours?"
I work Tuesday - Friday by appointment.
I am intending to keep Wednesdays fairly flexible for smaller walk-in tattoos; follow me on social media (see below for links) to keep posted about when those days will be open. Other than that you'll need to book an appointment.
“How do I book an appointment with you?”
After looking through my portfolio and making sure that my style fits your requested tattoo*. Please send me an email from the link provided on the booking page. This helps me to stay organized when it comes to my booking process. You will have access to my scheduling platform upon completion, this is to reserve your appointment. If I have questions or need further information, I will contact you.
Consultation appointments- For larger projects (sleeves, large scale pieces) please choose from the small tattoo option upon booking, this way we can go over the parameters and what you can expect as far as pricing and how many appointments you will need.
For all other requests, the consulting can be done via email. Your email should be as explanative as possible as this is what I will reference when I draw your tattoo. Feel free to attach images that sparked your initial idea for contacting me, however I will not duplicate another artist's tattoo, but rather draw something in my style. Make sure my style is what you are looking for as I don't normally stray too far from that when I sit down to draw your new piece!
(*If you are unsure if an idea is something I'd be comfortable with , send a request anyway, it doesn't hurt to ask.)
“Do I have to leave a deposit in order to get tattooed?”
Yes… A $50 deposit is required to secure your appointment and is due as soon as you book the appointment. It can be dropped off in cash or I will send you a PayPal or Square invoice. The amount is deducted from your final tattoo cost. In the event that you need to cancel or reschedule, I ask that you give me at least 48 hours notice or else you will forfeit your deposit.
“What is my tattoo going to cost/ How long will it take?”
My minimum is $120-$150 For small walk in sized tattoos.
However, a normal session will cost anywhere from $250-$500.
I don’t have an hourly rate. I charge by the piece. There are a few factors that can come in to play when deciding how I’ll charge for a session. I tattoo fairly quick, a normal session will be 2-3 hours tops. If it's going to take me longer than 3 hours, you will be asked to book multiple appointments. If there is a budget you have in mind, please let me know BEFORE your appointment so that I can draw accordingly.
“I have an appointment scheduled and was wondering when I’d see my drawing?”
I will have your drawing the day of your appointment. This is how my brain works. I keep my focus on the day at hand and do my drawings in the morning. ** If there are changes that you would like added/removed we can tackle that at the time of your appointment. ** If you are changing your overall subject matter; I do ask that you give me at least a week’s notice. This way if I feel I am not best suited to do the new subject it will allow for me to recommend someone else and also help me to get in another client in the schedule spot.
“What is your favorite subject matter?”
That’s a hard one for me to explain. I enjoy color tattoos first and foremost. I have been known to do the occasional black & grey, however my heart truly lies in color. As for my favorite subject matter, it is constantly evolving. The best way to answer that question is to direct you to my portfolio to see what styles I have been currently creating. It’s also worth mentioning that any of my paintings or ideas based off other art I create, I would love to do as a tattoo. See my Art Page for those examples.
“Do you do walk-ins?”
Wednesdays will be set aside for small walk-in style tattoos starting in March 2017. I have them available to book, if you want to have a solid appointment. Just choose from the "small tattoo" option on my scheduler. Wednesdays are for walk-ins and for henna here at Sacred Space. Also Every Wednesday I welcome Nicole Leigh who takes henna walk-ins! Guest henna artists will be visiting frequently as well as if I am not tattooing then I too will partake. So Yes I do walk-ins, however, it's only on Wednesdays. If it's a larger style request and there are people waiting... you will be asked to schedule an appointment.
Thank you for taking a moment to read my FAQ page. Be sure to follow me on social media sites such as Instagram and Facebook to see what styles of art that is currently receiving my attention. I also post when I do have cancellations or upcoming events.
