Frequently asked questions
Does it hurt?
Should I do anything to prepare for my tattoo?
The best thing you can do is come in well rested and well fed. The more days in advance you can hydrate and eat well, the better. Moisturizing a week or so before will also help. Bring yourself some food and drink. If it's a long session, headphones or a book if you please. Don't bother wearing your favorite outfit. Just be comfortable.
How long is your wait list?
My books are always open. Just fill out the booking form and if successful you'll be booked in the next available slot whether it's in 2 weeks or 2 months.
Can you make me a design?
I don't make designs without a deposit paid and an appointment set.
Can you send me the design before the appointment?
If you have an appointment set, we have already discussed the design and it will be my version of that made ready for the day of the tattoo.
Do you have flash designs available?
YES! I love to tattoo my own designs and they will be at a cheaper rate than normal. You can view them on my instagram or ask in the booking form if you have a certain theme you're after.
What is your cancellation policy?
Deposits are non-refundable and non-transferrable. If you need to move the appt within 5 days of the date the deposit is lost and new one will be required to continue. Cancellations are no exception.
Can I do two days in a row for a big project?
Yes but consider the second day is more painful and you will pay a day rate if you tap out in 2 hours or 7 so please plan wisely.
Can I use my own numbing cream?
Please don't show up with numbing cream on. I will scrub it out with alcohol. I generally don't use numbing agents and will apply my own only if absolutely necessary.
I'm visiting from out of town. Where can I stay?
Whistler is a resort town. The main village is filled with hotels and surrounded by Air bnb's.
Do you guest spot in other places?
Yes. Keep an eye on my social media as I usually post when I will be somewhere such as Edmonton, Calgary, Vancouver, Vancouver Island, Saskatoon, Kelowna.
How much do you charge?
My hourly rate is 180/hr or 1000/full day session (6-8 hours). Giving full creative freedom for the project or for my own designs, discounts apply.
