If you have an idea that needs to be drawn up, then the best thing to do is book a consultation with the right artist for your style of tattoo. You can use the Book a Consult form to arrange a time to come and meet them. Consultations are a free-of-charge appointment to figure out all the details of the design and whether you want to go ahead and get tattooed. If you decide you want to have a custom design drawn you will be quoted a drawing fee which is paid in advance. Tattoo bookings also require a deposit which is subtracted from the cost of your tattoo on the day.
For out of town clients we offer an initial online consultation below and booking service. Please send us a description of what you are looking to get done and your preferred artist or we can pair you with the right one.
SIZING A TATTOO
Measure the tattoo at its widest and tallest points in cms, or the area that you would like to fill up in cms.
Pictures are priced per piece or if you are getting ongoing work you will be placed on the cheaper hourly rate. We can possibly give you an estimate once we have received your consultation form and all your information. However, please keep in mind that quoting tattoo time is not an exact science and it is only an ESTIMATE. Also consider that full sleeves and backs can take a lot of time. For example, a black & grey sleeve would take at least 20 hours on a small arm! If you can’t sit very well or you are a large person, it could be twice that. A large amount of small intricate detail can also increase the amount of time needed for completion. This type of work is definitely a serious commitment and should be given serious thought before finalizing any scheduling and paying any deposits.
