Frequently Asked Questions

For a Common Understanding

What’s the best way to contact you for a consultation/appointment? 

  • Consultations and tattoo appointments can be made online, over the phone, or in person. Feel free to fill out the form on my Contact page. After your consultation, I require a deposit to book your appointment.  This will insure your space in my books. The deposit range is $100-250 depending on the project.  All deposits will be applied to your last session of your tattoo. Deposits are non-refundable.

  • I book two months at a time. If you want something further out you, I ask that you please wait to schedule an appointment. Booking this way allows for changes in my schedule and opportunities to book guest spots and travel.


Do you take walk-ins?  

  • I can only take walk ins when my schedule allows, which is not often. I will announce openings due to cancellation on my Instagram.

When can I expect a reply to my inquiry?  

  • I usually reply to all inquiries once or twice a month on Sunday or Monday.  Much of my time is spent drawing and tattooing so it may take me some time to read your inquiry and get back with you - please be patient with me during this process.  Please note, to expedite the inquiry process, include as much information as you can and follow up with any pictures you might have. 

Is there any type of tattooing you won’t do?  

  • Please check out my previous work before submitting an inquiry for a tattoo. I do a lot of traditional, neotraditional, Japanese, fineline, blackwork, and blackout tattoos, but some things just aren't for me. I will let you know if I think another artist is better suited for your idea.   

How much does a tattoo cost?  

  • My rate is $200 per hour with a $100 minimum. Some work that can be completed in one session will be subject to a variable flat rate. When traveling to guest spots or working at conventions, my pricing varies to accommodate the cost of traveling. If you have a budget you'd like to stay within, please include that information in your inquiry.

What is your Cancellation and Rescheduling Policy?  

  • If you need to cancel your appointment for any reason, it would be in your best interest to start the entire booking process over. Please keep in mind when you cancel, I have appointments already booked up to 2 months out, and you will most likely be  waiting another 2 months to get back into an open slot in my schedule. I require a minimum of 48-hour notice for cancellations and reschedules. Two reschedules are allowed, and on the third cancellation your deposit will be forfeited.  If you cancel less than 48-hours in advance or force me to reschedule often, you may fall out of good standing and are less likely to be scheduled in the future.  Please note, your required deposit to book your appointment is nonrefundable.  The deposit will be applied to your tattoo, and if your tattoo requires multiple appointments, the deposit is applied to the last appointment. 

Can you show me the artwork before my appointment?  

  • Most often, the answer is no. Typically, drawings are finished the evening before or the day of our appointment and my schedule doesn't allow time for review unless we have determined that to be a necessary part of our process.

Where are you located?

  • Currently, I am a resident artist at Collar City Tattoo located at 631 River Street in Troy, New York. Come by sometime and say hello!
