Info on the process of booking a Tattoo Session:


Existing Customers:

No need to faff about, If you know how long you'd like to book for:

If you're not sure how long to book for, please send me all the required info in an email to

You'll really be speeding the whole process up & as a result get booked in quicker.

New Customers:

I very much appreciate your interest in my work & that getting tattooed is a big deal. This is why I've put so much info on my website.

It is with the aim of making the process as smooth as possible for us both. I understand you're nervous & hopefully excited, so please read through the info on each of the pages that maybe relevant to you. As the answer to your questions should be there.

It just means I can spend less time answering e-mails & facebook messages (tattooists these days get a lot of them) and more time drawing designs. I tattoo full time, so any e-mails, drawings, website work etc is done outside business hours. So I do really appreciate an efficient attitude towards messages & booking.

Below is a 5 step by step guide to the process of booking a tattoo appointment. I've found the process below to be the most efficient & causes the least amount of confusion.

​1.Consultation/Quote, In person or via this Form. ​

Consultations in person are much better, as they ensure we are on the same wave length & you can get booked in straight away if you would like.

2. Booking  

Please us this Form to let me know when you'd like to book for. 

3. Deposit: 

Once you've filled out the booking form, you will be able to pay the deposit. Or use links of this page where you can pay a deposit with a debit card, or find info on how to pay with Paypal or in person.

*Deposits are required to make a booking* 

4.Your Design will get drawn for the day of the appointment. ​All drawing gets done for the day of the appointment. I get too bogged down with emails these days to be able to draw designs in advance. This is why consultations or ensuring you've provided all the required information is very important.

There is no cost/charge for drawing time.

5.Then it's just a case of Preparing for the tattoo session.

Short & Sweet version, no partying the night before.

wear comfy clothes, make sure you've eaten a decent meal & brought sugary snacks with you.

Remember nerves & excitement are totally normal.

Try to enjoy it. It's nothing like a visit to the dentist, you'll leave decorated & not dribbling at all. 

If you still have any concerns please do get in touch.
Many Thanks, Hx
