My hourly rate is $180 per hour for tattooing time, minimum price is $150.
For most pieces I prefer to do a one-on-one consultation with you first, to check size, placement and any other issues. Usually I can give you a “ballpark” price/quote on the tattoo you are after, but larger ongoing work is only undertaken at an hourly rate, paid for per session.
A $100 deposit is required for appointments and prior to any drawing being undertaken. This deposit is non-refundable if you fail to show up for your appointment.
Because a lot of what I tattoo is custom drawn, some pieces take hours to research and prepare. My schedule fluctuates depending on what I have to work on that month - I always do my best to book people in as soon as I can, but that is not always possible. Thank you for your patience, sometimes it takes a few days to get back to emails.
BEFORE GETTING TATTOOED:
Make sure you have had a good night’s sleep and a healthy meal before your tattoo. If you are feeling unwell leading up to your appointment, please contact me as soon as you can - it is not advisable to get tattooed if you are sick as your pain tolerance will be negatively affected.
Ladies, also please book major tattoo appointments around your cycle for the same reason - it will hurt a lot more for most women. I cannot tattoo you if you are pregnant, but it is possible if you are breastfeeding your infant and you have recovered from birth.
I will not tattoo anyone who is under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
Please bring a government issued photo I.D. to your appointment. You must be 18 years of age or older to be tattooed.
Please let me know if you are vegan - I have vegan-friendly stencil paper.
Please also declare if you have any known allergies/sensitivities that could flare up as a result of getting tattooed.
Incognito Tattoo is an “appointment only” space. Only tattoo clients are allowed in the procedure room - if you need to bring a friend please only bring ONE. We have a small but comfy sitting area where they can wait while I tattoo you. And please leave children at home.
The more relaxed you are during your tattoo, the better experience you will have. If you want to bring headphones and listen to your music, or read a book, please do so, I won’t be offended. Just make sure you don’t fidget or move too much - and that your cell phone is on silent.
AFTER GETTING TATTOOED:
I will apply a bandage and then go through aftercare instructions with you in person, and will give you a printed copy for your reference. For a week or two you will have to apply an ointment to your tattoo and keep it clean. You will also have to avoid sun exposure, soaking it in water, or introducing possible bacteria. So, for example, do not get a tattoo just prior to going away for a beach vacation! Or the day before a camping trip!
The combination of constant sun, an extremely dry climate and our hard water causes the average Los Angelean to have very dehydrated skin. It’s very important to drink a lot of water every day - not only for your health, but it will make your skin nicer to tattoo and my job a lot easier! Please consider upping your water intake during the week before your appointment, and using a daily moisturizer to nourish your skin. Trust me, it works!
