First off thanks to everyone who has shown any interest in getting tattooed by me. I have put together a few frequently asked questions to help you out. If you have a question that you don't see here please feel free to get ahold of me.
Q: How long have you been tattooing
A: I apprenticed under Travis Franklin at Oddity Tattoo in Sarasota, Fl and began tattooing in September of 2007
Q: Where and when do you tattoo?
A: I Tattoo at Rising Sparrow tattoo in Asheville, NC Weds-Saturday from 12-9pm
Q: Where can I buy some of your artwork.
A: I have a big cartel store you can purchase prints from by clicking here you can also follow me on instagram for new painting releases
Q: How far in advance should I schedule my tattoo?
A: I recently relocated to North Carolina and my avaiability is pretty open but contact me for more realistic wait times
Q: How much do you charge?
A: I charge $150 an hour. I have a 2 hour minimum. If you have a budget that you would like to stay within please let me know and I can design something to fit within a that budget for you. I also offer half day and full day time slots
Q: What style of tattoo can I expect to get from you?
A: I will do mostly illustrative cartoony tattoos and some reproduction work. My preference is animals, creatures and monsters. I will do both Black & Grey and Color.
Q: Do you take a deposit?
A: Yes! Most deposits are $100 and this comes off the last session. For larger pieces i will take a $250 or $500 deposit for full sleeves, back pieces and similar sized pieces. All deposits come off the back end of the tattoo. I also require three days (72 hours) notice for any cancellations. Failure to notify me prior to three days before the appointment will result in loss of deposit regardless of the reason. Also if you book an appointment with me for one design and change your mind on the design a NEW deposit will be required
Q: Im coming from out of town is there anyway you can email me the drawing before I come?
A: Unfortunately this is not possible, for multiple reasons. If you're coming from out of town please be as clear as you can about the design that you want done for your tattoo. This will cut down on any miscommunication between us and assure you that your tattoo will be what you're looking for.
Q: I live really far away and love your art! Can I use one of your images to get tattooed on me or can you draw me something for a tattoo?
A: Due to a hectic schedule I dont have the necessary time to design tattoos that I wont be tattooing. If you would like to get one of my paintings tattooed on you by a local artist that is perfectly fine. I would love for you to send me a photo of it when it is finished though, as I would love to see it! It would be my preference to not use any of my tattoo images as a tattoo design for yourself. These tattoos are usually a collaborative effort between myself and the client who wears them and out of respect to the client I would prefer all tattoos be left as is and not re-tattooed. thanks for understanding
Thanks so much for checking this out and hopefully it'll answer a few questions for ya, but if you need anything else please contact me and I will get back to you as soon as I can
