Once you have viewed all the portfolios and you know which artist you prefer (usually based on the style they specialize in):
Fill out a request form (found under the contact us section) and we'll get in touch to setup a consultation
Consultations are free and usually last no longer than 30 minutes
This is a dedicated space for you and the artist to brainstorm your ideas - so bring along references and inspiration!
Here we can also see how long the tattoo will take and give you an estimated costing.
We then make a booking for you with the artist and charge a holding deposit to secure your booking, and to get the design process underway. This deposit is non-refundable, and covers the cost of the artist's time to design your tattoo. This deposit WILL however be deducted OFF the final cost of your tattoo
Smaller tattoos require a R500 deposit
Larger pieces (that take anything from 3 hours up) will require a R1000 deposit
If you fail to reschedule or postpone within 48 hours of your appointment, you will unfortunately forfeit your deposit
The artist will then design a line drawing or mock up and send this to you by email for approval, or changes.
A line drawings or mock up is a ROUGH layout of the idea or composition of your tattoo.We usually offer 2 rounds of changes on the design. Designs are usually done a week prior to your tattoo, giving you and the artist time to make changes if need be
If you change your mind and want something else designed - a new deposit will apply
And last, but not least - ENJOY!
