How do I make an appointment?

If my books are open for submissions (check contact page), I will select the projects that are the best match to my tattoo style, capabilities, & subject matter preferences.  Because I'm only one little human, I can only take on a very small portion of your custom submissions. I have to pass on many projects I love, and often don't get the chance to read every email, so please don't feel rejected. This is the hardest part of my job!

Flash tattoos are a great way to increase your chances of getting tattooed. You can choose from my ever-rotating selection of customizable designs/concepts. 

What to include in your submission:

  • Whether you're interested in flash or custom work

  • succinct description of the design you're interested in, and general size/placement

  • References or photos of tattoos I've done that are relevant to your idea

  • Wether you are local or traveling from out of state for this tattoo.


*What I don't do: Heads, fingers, script/text, custom color tattoos, cover-ups or other artists work. 

All bodies welcome.

How much will my tattoo cost?

  • My rates are determined by the city I work in, booth or studio rent, current industry standards for my experience level, and demand. 

  • My current hourly rate in Taylor, TX is $280. My hourly for guest spots in different cities may fluctuate.

How do I prepare for my appointment?

  • Moisturize the area you're getting tattooed for several days before your appointment, but not the day-of

  • Get plenty of rest, stay hydrated, and avoid alcohol and blood thinners the night before

  • Eat a good meal before your tattoo, and feel free to bring snacks/drinks for break-time

  • Bring something to occupy you for long sessions, I can get a little quiet while I’m working! Headphones or a book are great!

  • While I try my best to keep ink off of your clothes, I recommend wearing black or dark colored clothing

  • Be prepared with payment. I am $280/hr, flash is done at a discounted rate depending on customization 

  • I accept debit/credit cards, and cash payments receive a 10% discount

If you feel anxious or uninformed, please bring it to my attention. I want you to be as comfortable as possible!

How do I take care of my new tattoo?

Traditional plastic wrap method:

Leave wrap on for 3 hours. When you take it off, wash your tattoo with very warm water (as hot as is comfortable) and mild liquid hand soap (like Dr. Bronner’s, Dial or Softsoap). Pat it dry gently with a paper towel, and let it air dry the rest of the way. Apply a very small amount of tattoo salve or plain lotion (like Lubriderm, Palmers cocoa butter, or Aquaphor) to the tattoo, just enough to lightly moisturize. For the next few days, wash your tattoo morning and night, and apply lotion when it feels dry or tight.


Recovery Derm Shield:

Leave your bandage on for 3 days (if no irritation around the perimeter is present). Gently peel the Derm Shield by pulling it slowly from the edge back over itself. Do not pull the bandage upwards. Removing it in a hot or warm shower will soften the adhesive making it easier to remove. It is normal for blood/fluids to collect under the bandage. Gently clean and completely dry your tattoo, then apply a thin layer of lotion or salve. Moisturize when dry or itchy for 3 weeks.

Other tips:

  • Avoid wearing clothing that may cause excessive rubbing to the area during the recovery process

  • Avoid exposure to the sun, especially in the first month after getting a new tattoo

  • Avoid soaking the area of your tattooed skin for at least 2 weeks

  • Avoid touching the area of your tattoo with dirty hands, even if it is itchy, applying lotion or salve with clean hands can help alleviate itchiness
