All #INKPLAY is done with love however, there is nothing wrong with brushing up on a little tattoo etiquette~
- Keep the 3C’s in front of you – Consideration, Communication, & Creativity
- Ideas are key! Thank you in advance for trusting me, but a jumpstart in a general direction will be necessary.
- Comparing prices isn’t a thing worth doing. I charge based on your expectations and the foreseen work load.
- Don’t ask for deals & discounts … especially for you and your crew. Homie hook-ups are NOT a thing. Please remember a good tattoo ain’t cheap and a cheap tattoo ain’t good.
- Don’t ask for it to be bigger if you don’t want to pay more. Of course it will cost more, it’s … BIGGER. 😛
- No posse please! While I may (or may not) like to meet your friends, I would like to get to know you and your piece more. So let’s leave the distractions and get to this collaboration.
- Ladies and gentlemen, hygiene is KEY! Please be sure to groom yourself accordingly.
- Wear the proper clothing for access to the area/ body part where you will get tattooed.
- Once you’re in the chair, relax! Questions about your will come up, sure, but try not to dictate your tattoo. Just relax, trust your artist, and enjoy~ (Of course, general chatter is a-ok!)
- Don’t push it to the limit and listen to your body. Breaks may need to happen, within reason. So be sure to communicate with your artist if you’re needing to take a moment. It’s ok. 😀
- Tips are always appreciated and yes, ANY tattoo artist will gladly accept them, even me! ^.^
Every tattoo session comes with a treat~
counseling・relationship advice ・grief & stress release ・emotional support ・child behavior insight ・financial analysis ・cultural understanding・ religious acknowledgment・ acupuncture massage ・and just good times with good people ♡
This is what your paying for outside of great artwork that will grace your body for life and be remembered after your gone.
