Below is everything you need to know about becoming a potential tattoo client. If what you need to know may not be listed here, please feel free to email me, Obsidian at email@example.com
Please read about Pastel, the multidisciplinary art studio to become more familiar about the space. Our COVID-19 Policy is here. Following are all the details about booking and my boundaries surrounding the creative process.
Deposit: The deposit is a non-refundable fee. It goes towards the final cost of the tattoo. This fee also covers the consultation, which is understanding eachother a little better, researching and sketches for the initial design phase. It ensures also insures your commitment to the project.
Rescheduling: If you happen to have an emergency or need to reschedule for any reason, please do so 2-3 days or sooner before your appointment time. In this case, your deposit can still go towards the new appointment. If you fail to reschedule within this timeframe, you do not get refunded.
Designing (Before Your Appointment & Pre-Tattoo): *Please be mindful of the fact these are necessary before I move forward in designing your tattoo:
♡ You have submitted a little bit about yourself, the concept and other details in regards to the tattoo on the "Custom Tattoo Request Form".
If I still have questions about: Sizing, Color, Placement, References etc. I will contact you through the provided information.
♡ You must have scheduled a date & and paid your deposit for your appointment through the Square Appointments Booking Site.
♡ The more specifics I have within the "Custom Tattoo Request" Form correspondence via e-mail or text about the tattoo – the more the vision is clarified, and imagining the concept creates more options for you to choose from the day of your appointment.
Designing (Day Of Your Appointment & During Tattoo):
♡ I will typically have 1-3 tattoo options prepared and available to be tattooed the day you arrive, depending on how much detail we agreed on in our correspondence.
♡ The selected design is able to be altered with minor changes the day of within these parameters:
♡ Free Alterations Before The Stencil Is Placed: Placement, Switching the same number of colors, adding just one (1) color, what parts of the tattoo have color, doing just black, flipping the direction of the stencil.
♡ Free Alterations During The Tattoo: Small changes in linework (like removing a detail before I come to it).
♡ Charged Alterations During The Tattoo ($10 Each): Adding 2 or more colors than what was initially agreed upon.
♡ I will decline to significant changes of a tattoo design that go outside of what was mentioned above. Creating an entirely different piece than what is available the day of your appointment or during the tattoo, is not an option.
♡ If you dislike the design but still want to work with me, we can use your appointment time to design something together. This is a $40 fee, 40 minutes and does not go towards the cost of the tattoo. Once we agreed and feel confident in the design, we can then reschedule your next appointment which requires another separate deposit.
♡ If you dislike your design and no longer desire to work with me, I can have my mentor recommend you an ideal artist who can create what you are looking for.
