All consultations are temporarily suspended.

I will not be offering ANY consultations until further notice.  I need this time to sort out the details of the re-location of the studio.  If you are interested in working with me I am looking forward to hearing from you, but PLEASE, do not email me requesting consultations at this time.  Please sign up to the mailing list (bottom right hand side of any page on this site) and await the scheduling notice for more info about how the consultations will work when they resume.  If you email about a consultation at this time, you will NOT get a reply.

As always, thank you very much for your interest and your patience.


Please DISREGARD all info below this line until further notice…….


*Consultations are by INVITATION ONLY.  All consultations require an appointment.  If you would like to schedule a tattoo consultation, please email me AFTER you have read the FAQ page,  and include the following:

  •  Name, and email address
  • Description of your tattoo concept (I may reply with a request for reference photos)
  • Specify the body-area where you want the tattoo placed and please mention any nearby pre-existing tattoos if applicable.

If your concept is interesting to me, I will reach out to you at my earliest convenience with any additional questions I may have, and with further information about arranging your consultation.  Please understand that I simply do not have time to respond to every email, and that I will not reply to emails containing questions which have already been answered on the FAQ, CONSULTATIONS, and APPOINTMENTS pages.


The online calendar on this website is for use by pre-screened clients who wish to schedule appointments.  Please join the mailing list (bottom right hand side of any page on this website) to get the notice for regular scheduling each season.


A Skype or FaceTime call may be required before a face-to-face consultation will be scheduled.


It is during this initial meeting that you will help me to better understand your tattoo needs, and I will offer you ideas and information for your consideration regarding your concept. This is one of the MOST IMPORTANT phases in the entire process. Through our communication we will begin to glimpse the final realization of your ideas – though this is an ONGOING realization that continues to evolve even into the actual tattooing process, and I ask that you remain open to new ideas and fresh inspirations throughout the duration of our interactions.

The initial tattoo consultation is one of my favorite parts of tattooing. It is a very exciting time for tattoo collectors, and so it is also very exciting for me to have the opportunity to help you explore the possibilities. It is my hope that after having met with me and having discussed your ideas together, you will feel secure in knowing that I truly CARE about you, your tattoo, your long-term happiness with my services, and that you will choose to schedule appointments to have me make your next tattoo.
