"Where are you located?"
I work out of my private studio : Sacred Space Tattoo Studio, 8050 Easton Rd, Ottsville PA 18942
(Easton Rd IS state route 611, located about 25 minutes north of Doylestown, and 30min south of Easton.)
"What are your available hours?"
I work Tuesday - Friday by appointment. I do not offer weekend hours.
I have multiple booking options to choose from depending on the size of the tattoo you are wanting to receive.
“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.
CONSULTATIONS will 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, be aware that I will not duplicate another artist's tattoo, but rather draw something similar in my style. Make sure my art is what you are looking for- as I don't normally stray too far from that when I 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. *Please don't make me chase you.
I accept Paypal, Square-up or Venmo. (The paypal link is offered on the appointment screen)
If I do not receive a deposit, your reserved spot will be forfeited.
I understand that life happens and rescheduling/cancellations occur. In the event of a reschedule- I will forward your deposit to the new appointment. If you need to cancel outright, I do ask that you give me at least 48 hours notice- if not then your deposit will be forfeited.
“What is my tattoo going to cost/ How long will it take?”
My minimum is $150 For small sized tattoos.
Most sessions will range anywhere from $300-$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 scheduled 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 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.
"Will you do my COVER-UP?"
Maybe. It really has to be light... and something I feel I'll be able to successfully cover. More often than not, this isn't the case... and in that event, I have to be honest that I will most likely recommend a few sessions of laser tattoo removal. Yes it hurt. Yes it works, and in the long run, trust me, you'll be WAY happier with your new tattoo. I personally have used the services, with great success of: GO! Tattoo Removal - they are located in Allentown, PA.
Please do not reserve a tattoo appointment for a cover-up, until I've given you the green light.
“Do you do walk-ins?”
No. I do not set aside time for walk-ins. In the past I have, and they always prove to be pretty exhausting (physically and mentally). Since I am the only artist, the studio is set up for private appointments and the best way to assure getting a tattoo by me is securing your own spot in the calendar.
I thank you in advance for understanding.
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.
