Deposit Policy

Dear Client: this deposit policy insures that we are both clear on our agreements pertaining to your deposit. Thank you.


  • As I put your name into my appointment book for your first tattoo sitting, I will ask for a deposit of $225.
  • The deposit is used towards your last session with me. If you only need one appointment, it covers your last hour of work completed. If you need more than one, it comes out of your last appointment. 
  • Deposits are non-refundable. (If you decide not to get tattooed, it covers the time I spent on our e-mail exchange, consultation, and potentially losing the chance to work on other clients while holding my time open for you.)

You will lose your deposit if:

  • If you are more than a half hour late to an appointment.

  • You give me less than one week of notice to cancel or reschedule an

    appointment. (If I can't rebook your appointment, I don't work. Coordinating multiple schedules (mine and my clients') requires time, thus I need at least this much notice to rebook.)

  • You reschedule an appointment more than twice.

  • Six months pass "on hold" without an appointment or communication from you.


  • On the day of your first appointment I will show you the linework for your tattoo. You will have a good idea of how it is going to look prior to getting tattooed. 

  • I don't do back and forth over e-mail about designs. 
  • I do a lot of my work freehand, so the details, such as shading and coloring will be talked through and decided on together as part of the process. 

  • Your deposit will go towards a drawing fee if you change your mind about your design once I start the process of preparing for your tattoo.
