BOOKS OPEN FOR THE BAY AREA
My books are currently OPEN for appointments in Oakland for November-December.
Books for my upcoming guest spot at Estuary Tattoo in Brooklyn, NY on November 15-17 are now closed. However, I travel to NYC at least once per year and have several on-going projects with NYC-based clients and make regular travel plans to visit and tattoo. If you are interested in getting tattooed by me during a future visit to NYC, you can add your email to my NYC waitlist. Clients on my waitlist will be notified of travel plans to the area and will get booking priority.
Please be sure to read my Policies + FAQs prior to submitting a booking proposal. Submitting a booking proposal indicates that you have read my Policies + FAQs in their entirety and agree to comply with them.
I continue to require that all clients be vaccinated and wear an N95 mask during appointments, including during guest spots.
My rate is $175/hour with a 2 hour minimum. My sliding scale rate is $150/hr with a 2 hour minimum. My sliding scale rate is only available in the Bay Area. I cannot offer sliding scale rate during guest trips because I need to cover the costs of travel expenses. Expect higher deposit amounts for guest tattoos. However, I do offer full-day flat rate discounts for large projects during guest trips.
I typically tattoo on Tuesdays + Fridays + every-other Sunday. This means my weekend availability is extremely limited. Weekday availability will be prioritized. There are some weeks where I tattoo different days, but that is my rough schedule.
Submitting a proposal is not a guarantee of booking. If I am interested in your proposal, I will respond via email. It can take me anywhere from 24 hours to several weeks to respond. Please be patient and keep an eye on your inbox.
Tattoo Priorities + Want To Do Concepts:
Here is a list of the types of projects I am currently most excited about. When going through booking submissions, I will prioritize projects that fall into one of these categories. However, I also really love surprising, unique ideas that give me space to experiment, so don’t be scared to propose projects that are not on this list! You can see examples of all of these in my Instagram in the WANT TO DO story highlight.
-FLASH, also known as pre-drawn designs (see the Flash page for available designs)
-Floral + botanical pieces, both realist + abstract/stylized
-Portraits + figurative work, both realist + abstracted/stylized
-Insects + critters, both realist + abstract/stylized
-Interesting + unique objects / still life compositions
-Pieces that utilize my abstraction technique of tracing lines + shapes from photos. These projects can be entirely abstract or incorporate realist imagery..
-Pieces that incorporate my swirly “oil slick” abstract style
-Gradient squiggles, both forming a shape + meandering around the body
-Ear + finger/hand tattoos, especially matching sets
-Abstracted tarot cards
-Large, multi-session projects
Thanks for submitting! I will reach out via email if I am interested in working with you :)
