frequently asked questions
How do i book an appointment with you?
Emailing is the only way to get an appointment. Please send inquiries within an open booking period only. I will post on Instagram when my books open/close.
I sent my email two weeks ago, when can i expect a response?
Due to the volume of requests received, it is normal for it to take a while for me to get back to you. I comb through my email submissions slowly to ensure I am only responding back-and-forth with a manageable number of inquiries at a time. Please refrain from emailing multiple times during a booking period unless it is to discuss an already existing appointment. Your patience and cooperation during this process is greatly appreciated.
I never received a response and now your books are closed. You hate me, right?
No way! I probably like you a lot! If I feel your project is something I would not take on, you will hear from me. Not receiving a response just means my books filled up before I could get to your inquiry. At the end of each booking period, I clear out my inbox to keep things organized for the next round. Please do not hesitate to email me every time I open my books!
Can I get on your cancellation list?
I do not have a cancellation list. I post all last-minute cancellations to Instagram as first-come, first-served appointments.
Where are you located?
I work at Black Oak in Logan Square, Chicago, IL.
When are you coming to NY/LA/etc.??
I post all of my travel plans to instagram. This is the best way to stay up to date about upcoming travel plans.
Can you draw me a design for someone else to tattoo it?
Why not? I'll pay you.
It is not about being paid for a service. I do not recommend having another tattooer try to replicate someone else's drawing style. You'll get a better tattoo if you find a tattooer you trust and allow them to come up with something of their own. If you trust an artist to replicate a drawing for you, then you should trust their own artistic ability when it comes to designing the tattoo themselves.
What do you charge?
Each project is priced by the piece and is dependent on size, placement, and level of detail. Once I know the specifics of your project, I can provide a rough estimate via email.
How long have you been tattooing?
I've been tattooing since February of 2016.
Can i have your cats?
