Each artist's time is valuable. we don't charge for drawing time, only for the tattoo time. Sometimes artists spend hours on designs BEFORE the actual tattoo appointment, therefore we require deposits. Even if our artist does not need to spend a lot of time on your drawing, the time they set aside for your tattoo appointment is a block of time that they need to earn their money to pay their bills and raise their families. They cannot reserve a block of time for you or spend hours designing your piece, without a deposit to ensure that you will show up for your appointment on time and ready to get tattooed.
Deposits are required for all appointments. Deposits may be rolled over for consecutive appointments and applied to the final session. Artwork deposits are applied to the price of the tattoo service as described above. Deposits are non-transferable and may not be used for other goods or services. Failure for you to follow through with the design agreement within 120 days will forfeit the deposit to the artist to compensate for design time. Minor changes may be made to the artwork after receiving the initial sketch. Artwork will be shown to the client review and (if necessary) to make corrections prior to executing the final draft. If changes are requested after the final draft is created, additional costs may be added to alter the artwork.
