Booking Appointments in 2011 (Updated)

Booking Appointments

I am currently booking appointments for 2011. Here is the deal with booking appointments.

If you are a completely new client – you will have to talk to me BEFORE you can book an appointment. This may be an email conversation, a phone conversation or possibly a personal consultation. You will NOT be able to stop in to the shop and book with me through anyone else.

If we have talked generically about your tattoo design or idea, but I do not have specifics (tracing of the body part, photo reference, style choices, etic.,) then you will need to have a consultation appointment ahead of time.

If we have already had a consultation appointment and I have agreed to work with you on your design, then you have options as how you can book.

~ stop into the Webster location on a Friday or Saturday and book in person with one of the counter staff

~ email me reminders of all necessary design info and then call to book the appointment and leave the deposit by phone

~ email me reminders of all necessary design info and paypal the deposit and I can call or email back with dates for your appointment

I must have either a completed appointment sheet or all of your information in writing (via email or regular mail) and a deposit BEFORE I can schedule time for you. I will not “just hold some time” for you without having clear specifics on what we are doing.

If you have ANY questions at all, please contact me through email. It is difficult to catch me on the phone, but you are welcome to try. Please do not stop into either shop unannounced except for Fridays and Saturdays in Webster when there is a counter person there to assist you.


Once my schedule fills up to June 30th I will stop booking appointments again.


Below is a repost explaining the changes that I have made to my scheduling. Again, these are the guidelines that I am working under, if you have questions at all, please contact me directly.

Thank you muchly!!!

For some time now I have been feeling overwhelmed. I have tried in the past to cut back on the number of new projects that I am taking on and while it has helped some…. the time has come to do something a bit more drastic.

I apologize in advance to any who may feel slighted. I am not judging you or your tattoo. I am not telling you that there is anything wrong with the style of tattoo that you would like.

What I am doing is cutting back on the projects that I am doing and focusing on a smaller variety of tattoos.

So for the foreseeable future I will be doing:

Portraits and Realistic Work

Custom Celtic Designs

Figurative, Pin-up and Fairies

No Outline Color & Black and Grey Work

Medical Tattooing (Reconstructive)

fun stuff (yes, I know that’s completely subjective)

continuing work on existing clients

I will not be doing:

Reworks (other than mine) and Cover-Ups

Flash (other than mine or something really fun)

Regular “outline” Tattoos (yes this is completely subjective)

Small Single Point Tattoos (unless it is a ridiculously fun idea)

Traditional Japanese style Work

Text or Word based designs (no paragraphs of type)

Tribal (still)
