I'm a Resident Artist at Skin and Soul in Bellevue, WA.
I'll be booking for January and February 2021 in Washington starting on December 12th.
I also regularly visit Austin, TX. The best way to stay up to date on my travels is by checking my Instagram.
I'm currently working at Skin and Soul in Bellevue, WA. I work by appointment only and take on specific pieces that fit my style.
Yes. Contact me by direct message (instagram) or email. I will send you a link to book - allowing clients to choose appointment dates / times and fill out a form for their tattoo idea. I will approve your booking request if it lines up with my style and interests. You will get a notification if it's approved.
I work at $200 an hour and have a 2 hour minimum. I can provide time estimates for specific pieces if you are uncertain. Any time designing and drawing the tattoo outside of our appointment time is not charged for.
Generally, a detailed piece the size of a baseball or playing card is around 2 hours ($400).
A design the size of a softball and highly detailed may be 3 hours ($600).
A piece the size of an iPhone or larger with multiple elements is usually 4 hours ($800).
A full forearm or hip piece, half sleeve or beginning of a full sleeve project may take 5 hours ($1000)
I will be prioritizing larger pieces for the months of January and February 2021. I will still be accepting some smaller pieces depending on whether the subject lines up with my style and interests!
My highest priority is providing my clients with quality work and original designs that look amazing and hold up overtime. My prices reflect all the work and attention to detail that go into creating a great piece and a great experience for you.
Due to the volume of drawings I have every week, I am not able to send designs in advance. The drawing will be available to view day-of and we will have ample time to review, collaborate and tweak during your appointment.
WHERE DO I PARK? WHAT DOES CHECK-IN LOOK LIKE?
Skin and Soul shares parking spaces with a garment repair shop. Any spots in front of the studio and garment shop are great. We can also use parking spots up by paggliaci pizza and there is a staircase down to the studio from that upper lot. Just avoid spaces labeled Rite Aid only. They monitor those and you may be ticketed. The studio is tucked into the corner beside Rite Aid. Our front desk staff will take your temperature and check you in on arrival.
Larger custom pieces require a $100 deposit to secure the appointment slot. Smaller pieces do not require one. Deposits go toward your overall tattoo cost.
Stay well hydrated with water
The evening before, shave the area that is to be tattooed
Wear appropriate, clean, loose fitting clothing that can get dirty
Plan on leaving with a plastic wrap on
Always wash your hands before touching your tattoo
Clean your tattoo with warm water and fragrance free soap
Dab your tattoo dry and avoid any rubbing motion
Apply a thin layer of moisturizer (I will recommend certain brands / types)
WHAT KIND OF TATTOOS WILL YOU DO?
Custom artwork. Florals, plants, animals, geometric pieces, dot work, sleeves. I work in strictly black and grey. You can send me references of pieces or visuals you like but I will not copy someone else's work. Everything will be custom drawn and tailored to you.
Born in Toronto and raised in NY, I started making my way further south in college where I studied Computer Information Systems in Charleston, SC. Post-grad, the even warmer weather and abundant tacos brought me to Austin, TX. I worked in the corporate world as a graphic designer for many years before my creative passions finally led me to tattooing.
Outside of tattooing, I spend my time olympic weightlifting and taking my 4-year-old boxer on adventures. I'm super passionate about connecting with clients and really pride myself on understanding what they want to get out of a tattoo.
