Now accepting inquiries for September-October.
Self Made Tattoo in Colorado Springs, CO.
My rate is $125 per hour, and I require a $100 nonrefundable deposit for all new projects. I accept cash, card, PayPal and Venmo as forms of payment.
I am more inclined to take on projects that involve natural elements such as bones and skulls, anatomy, moths, flowers, etc. I am also favorable to dark/gothic subject matter such as castles and churches, occult depictions, medieval motifs, etc.
Recently, I have found myself enjoying drawing traditional designs, and hope to begin tattooing more in that style.
I've been thinking about taking my art in a new direction in the coming year, and would love to start booking clients for traditional color designs. At this time, I will not accept custom inquiries for color designs. If you are interested in booking with me for color work, I will only be offering predrawn designs at a discounted flat rate. Predrawn designs can be found towards the consultation form on my website, or on my Instagram page.
I prefer to adhere to my black and grey style, and I will not incorporate color in custom designs. I do not tattoo fine line or "micro" tattoos. Most importantly, I will not tattoo any design that exhibits racist, sexist, or homophobic qualities.
I can be contacted through direct email (firstname.lastname@example.org), or by submitting a consultation form below. The consultation form outlines all the information I generally need from a client, and may serve as the most accessible option for new clients.
I WILL NOT respond to DMs or text messages.
I will respond to your inquiry within 48 hours of receiving it. If your inquiry involves a piece I am not comfortable/not interested in tattooing, I will refer you to another artist. This is not intended to hurt feelings, I just want to remain selective with the projects I take on so I can ensure my clients receive the best work I can provide.
No. You must be 18 or older to receive a tattoo from me.
At this time, I will not tattoo over preexisting work. If you inquire about a coverup, I will refer you to another artist. I will, however, tattoo over scars. Scar tissue must be 1-2 years fully healed for me to consider tattooing over the area.
An appointment can generally last 4-6 hours. This factors in time for stenciling and breaks (which is not considered as billable time). Depending on the scale and detail of a project, multiple sessions may be needed to complete the tattoo.
I will have the design fully prepared the day of your appointment. Before we begin stenciling, we will have a chance to review the design and make any minor changes (if need be). If the design does not meet your expectations and you would like to have it redrawn, your appointment will be rescheduled and a new deposit will be required. Please be as detailed as possible during the consultation so that this scenario is less likely to occur.
My availability is 11:00-5:00 Tuesday-Saturday. Once we have conducted a thorough consultation, I will send a selection of available dates to choose from. Once you have selected a date, you will be tentatively placed on my schedule, and a deposit will be required to secure your appointment.
All new appointments require a $100 nonrefundable deposit. Upon selecting an appointment date, you will have 48 hours to pay the deposit. Deposits can be paid via the following:
Deposits secure your appointment and will be deducted from the final price of the completed tattoo.
If no deposit is received within the 48 hour deadline, your appointment will be forfeited.
Should you need to reschedule or cancel, please notify me prior to 48 hours before your appointment.
Canceling within those 48 hours will forfeit your deposit, and a new one will be required to secure a new appointment.
No-call-no-show automatically forfeits your deposit and any future business.
