I generally do not send designs/sketches over email or Facebook prior to the tattoo session. The reference images you provide to me are for my reference only; I create custom pieces in my style. I have an avant-garde, graphic, painterly-influence in my art, which shows in my designs and tattooing. For the best results, I need to leave room for a little magic to happen on the skin, so for that reason, I do not complete fully rendered designs for my tattoos. I encourage you to meet with me before your booking to view your sketch. It is important to be explicit and provide as much detail as possible before any designing commences, as major changes to your design may incur additional fees.
PREPARING FOR YOUR APPOINTMENT
For larger pieces I prefer a minimum of four-hour sessions, as shorter sessions interrupt artistic flow. Please avoid consuming energy drinks prior to or during your tattoo session. Feel free to bring a pillow and blanket, and please wear comfortable clothing that will allow easy access to the area to be tattooed. Focus your mind on relaxing and meditating; fighting the pain and/or tensing will only drain your energy and force me to tattoo at a much slower pace. I recommend attending your appointment alone, as interruptions from friends/relatives take focus and attention away from you and/or the artist.
I am committed to raising the bar every day. Quality is more important than anything, and for that I need trust and time from you. Thank you, and I look forward to producing a great tattoo for you.
