I specialize in detailed blackwork tattoos incorporating fine lines and dotwork. I don’t offer full color tattoos or work that is outside of the style that you see in my portfolio. I enjoy creating work that involves plants, animals, sentimental objects, and queer themes.
As of August 2019, I am changing from a flat rate to a sliding scale hourly rate (for those of you already booked for August at a flat rate, I will reach out to you and give you the option to change to sliding scale hourly or to keep our agreed upon flat rate).
My rate is now sliding scale $120-150/hr. For work that takes less than an hour, $120 is my lowest rate (with some exceptions for super small or simple designs).
Most of my work falls within the 1-3 hour range. I cannot guarantee how long your tattoo will take, but I will always give you an estimate before you come in so you can plan accordingly. For certain large or super detailed work that will take multiple sessions or exceed 4 hours, we can discuss a flat rate that works for your budget and/or a payment plan.
The sliding scale model allows you to choose the cost of your tattoo that works for your budget. I understand that even my lowest rate may not be affordable for all. If you have a budget that is lower than the number of hours I have quoted your tattoo taking, please let me know so we can discuss your options!
Please review my sliding scale policy below.
While tattoos are often viewed as a luxury expense, I know that they can be incredibly healing and are often deeply linked to self care and feeling at home in our bodies. Because I believe in the importance of tattoos as a form of self care, I offer sliding scale and payment plans as a way to make my work more accessible.
Consider paying less on the scale if any of the following apply to you:
You are BIPOC or otherwise non-white
You are Trans
You belong to a community that lacks representation in the tattoo industry
You have medical expenses and/or have been denied work due to a chronic illness, or otherwise experience discrimination related to ableism
If this tattoo is meant to cover up or reclaim self harm scars
You have a low paying job or cannot reasonably afford my higher rate
Know that when you pay more on the scale:
You are helping to make my work more accessible by allowing me to offer tattoos at a lower rate to others
You are allowing me to pay reparations and donate to people in need more frequently
You are helping a non-binary Trans artist (me!) afford health care and financial independence
I will never ask you to prove or otherwise justify what rate you choose.
Thank you to A-B (abmtattoo.com) for allowing me to use their sliding scale format as a model for my own.
