Studio Info & Policies
How do I make an appointment?
I handle multiple requests per day/ week, so please be patient.
Do you take walk-ins?
Currently I'm tattooing by appointment only. At the off chance I have time available I'll post it in my Instagram story. I have available designs posted on the "Big Board" at the shop and in my FLASH folder on Instagram. Follow me & turn on post notifications to stay updated. I also have a monthly newsletter where I post new designs before they become available on social media - Join my newsletter here
