Washington - Guest Spots TBD
WHERE ARE YOU LOCATED?
In Texas, I work at Snowbird Studio (a private shop) in Austin. In Washington, I work at Skin and Soul in Bellevue. In September '23 I will be working full time at Golden Iris Studio in Boulder, CO. I work by appointment only and take on specific pieces that fit my style.
DO I NEED AN APPOINTMENT?
Yes. When my books are open, there will be a request form on my Instagram page. If your project is accepted, I will reach out to you to choose an appointment date & time. I do not accept all projects. Due to the volume of requests I receive, I am selective about choosing pieces that line up with my interests and design style.
HOW MUCH WILL IT COST? HOW DO I PAY YOU?
I work at $250 an hour and have a 2 hour minimum. The length of your appointment includes everything we need to do to complete your piece (setup, stenciling, tattooing etc.) not just the time of needle to skin. This is the simplest way to book as you will know exactly what your project will cost in advance.
Generally, a piece the size of a baseball or softball is around 2 hours ($500).
A design the size of a small iPhone and highly detailed may be 3 hours ($750).
A piece larger than an iPhone with multiple elements is usually 4 hours ($1000).
A full forearm / shoulder piece, or part of a half/full sleeve project will take 5 hours ($1250)
Below are examples of tattoos completed in different appointment length times. If you need more examples of pieces and their time requirements, please check the captions on my IG posts.
My highest priority is providing my clients with quality work and original designs that look amazing and hold up overtime. My prices reflect all the work and attention to detail that go into creating a great piece and a great experience for you.
Due to the volume of drawings I have every week, I am not able to send designs in advance. The drawing will be available to view day-of and we will have time to review, collaborate and make small tweaks during your appointment.
WHERE DO I PARK? WHAT DOES CHECK-IN LOOK LIKE?
Snowbird Studio (TX) is located on the East Side in the 501 Studios building. We validate parking for thhe Corazon Parking garage, located one block away from the studio. Directions can be found on the snowbird studio page in the 'Parking' highlight. Street parking (pay stations) is $2/hr and free on Sundays. Directions can also be found in your confirmation email.
Skin and Soul (WA) moved locations on April 1st, 2023. Please check to make sure you are going to the updated address! 12356 Northup Way Suite 103, 98005. There is ample parking at the studio.
Larger custom pieces may require a $100 deposit. I will let you know if that is the case. Deposits go toward your overall tattoo cost.
Stay well hydrated with water and make sure you have eaten beforehand
The evening before, shave the area that is to be tattooed
Wear appropriate, clean, loose fitting clothing that can get dirty
Plan on leaving with a plastic wrap on
Always wash your hands before touching your tattoo
Clean your tattoo with warm water and fragrance free soap
Dab your tattoo dry and avoid any rubbing motion
Apply a thin layer of moisturizer (I recommend Aquaphor)
Repeat morning and night until your tattoo has finished peeling
WHAT KIND OF TATTOOS WILL YOU DO?
Florals, plants, animals, abstract & geometric concepts, male & female figures, half sleeve & full sleeve projects. I work in strictly black and grey. You can send me references of pieces or visuals you like but I will not copy someone else's work. Everything will be custom drawn and tailored to you. My instagram is a great resource to see what types of pieces I am interested in doing.
Please check the "Booking" highlight on my instagram page for a comprehensive list of what I will and will not tattoo!
As a tattoo artist, I am passionate about creating art that connects with people on a deep and meaningful level. What sets me apart is my dedication to being kind, empathic, and understanding with my clients, ensuring that they feel comfortable and heard throughout the process.
I draw inspiration from the natural world and my deep love for the outdoors and adventure, infusing these elements into my work whenever possible. With each tattoo, I strive to create a piece that not only looks beautiful on day one, but holds up for decades to come. It is an honor to be a part of my clients' journeys and to help them express themselves through my art.
Outside of tattooing, I enjoy weightlifting, climbing, hiking, mountaineering, and generally any sort of adventure!
As of May 2023, I will be living and working in Boulder, CO but still tattooing as a guest in Bellevue, WA and Austin, TX throughout the year. My studio in Austin, Snowbird Studio, operates year-round with a handful of very talented female artists! Feel free to check them out @snowbird_studio.
Please wait until a booking form is posted in my bio to submit an idea. I do not read or accept ideas via DM. If you have questions that are not answered by the FAQ sheet above, or by the highlights on my instagram page, please feel free to reach out via email.
