Welcome and thank you for your interest in my art! Currently, I am offering tattoo, henna, and jagua in downtown Lancaster at a custom private studio that consists of me and my fellow magical tattoo artist extraordinaire, Ina Vigilato! (www.inavigilato.com) My journey into tattooing began 13 years ago, and my path has led me to a place where I choose to tattoo what I feel is most aligned with my style, strengths, and soul. Though I am open, and embrace endless styles of creation, I feel most connected to larger scale organic/nature/botanical/sacred geometry subject matter! Therefore, if I feel another artist may be better suited to make your vision come to life, I may redirect you to a fellow local artist. What is most important is that you find the ideal artist who will bring your vision to light.
Why a private studio? Ina and I deeply share the belief that the EXPERIENCE itself is one of the most important aspects of both receiving & offering a tattoo. Our private studio offers comfort, privacy, and freedom to be as open as possible when you receive your body art. Therefore, we do not accept walk-ins. We try to create a space so that your experience will be as special as possible (envision magic mermaid/fairie lair)!
How much do you charge? TATTOO: My current rate for tattooing is $100-$150 an hour. I will do my very best to give you a general estimate of time a project will take, but I CANNOT guarantee a set time frame or cost. I understand it can be a large investment to begin a tattoo project. Taking that into consideration, there are simply too many factors in the tattooing process that prevent me from offering a guarantee. A deposit fee of $100 will be collected at the end of your initial consultation. Assuming that the scheduled appointment is kept, the $100 will be deducted from total cost of your first session. If the appointment is cancelled within less than 24 hours before appointment, then the deposit is NOT returned. If after our consultation you have committed to the project, paid the deposit, and then decide to cancel all together, then the $100 is kept as an artist fee.
MEHNDI/JAGUA: My rate for henna/mehndi/jagua is as follows: $25= 30 minute session $50=1 hour session
*** I accept cash/credit card/PayPal/Venmo***
Why is a deposit required? I genuinely get just as excited to create for you, as you are to get tattooed! I spend a tremendous amount of time and energy in research, reference, & drawing to try and make your vision come to light. Therefore, when someone changes their mind or does not show up for a scheduled appointment, the deposit offers me security and compensates me for time already invested. What if I need to cancel/reschedule? I understand life does not always go exactly as planned. If you need to reschedule or cancel please EMAIL me as soon as possible at firstname.lastname@example.org. This is the only accepted way to contact me for this purpose.
