How do I schedule an appointment?
The following information is specified for tattoo bookings. Please read my booking policies thoroughly before submitting an inquiry in order to simplify the scheduling process.
The first step in the tattoo process is booking an appointment. Due to a high volume of emails, I please ask that you include in your initial email a thorough description of the tattoo you would like, the size and location on your body, as well as which days/times of the week are best for you. It is also recommended that you send reference photos from my Instagram to give me a better idea what you are looking for.
If you have certain days and times that work best for you please include that information and I will do my best to accommodate you. I work by appointment only Tuesday - Saturday. Please allow up to a week for a reply. Thank you for your patience!

What is your deposit policy?
In order to book an appointment, you must put down a non-refundable deposit of $75 which will be deducted from the total cost of your tattoo at the time of your appointment.
Once we agree on a time and date for your tattoo, you will have 24 hours to put down your deposit, or your slot may be given up. Your deposit is non-refundable, but your appointment can be rescheduled a maximum of 2 times. If you reschedule with less than 5 days notice for any reason, your deposit will for forfeited and you must put down a new deposit for a new booking. Appointments that are cancelled for any reason will cause a forfeiture of your deposit. Thank you for understanding this policy. By sending your deposit, you are agreeing to understand my policies, so please read them
I will send you deposit instructions once we agree on a time. Please include the date and time of your appointment in the deposit notes.
When will I see the drawing for my tattoo?
Due to a high volume of clients, I do not send drawing previews in advance. Your design will be ready for you at the time of your appointment, and plenty of time will be available for you to request any changes you would like. I don't make any exceptions to this policy.
How much will my tattoo cost?
My rate for tattoos is $185/hr with a $165 minimum. Your time starts once we begin your tattoo. Due to many factors, it is difficult to estimate what the exact price will be; but some techniques can be more time-consuming than others as well as certain locations on your body. For example, thicker lines and fewer details take less time than stippling/dotwork or realistic drawings. If you are on a budget, I can let you know which styles might fit within it.
*Rates are subject to change at any time.
Can I bring a friend to my appointment?
Although I do allow one guest to accompany you to your appointment if you're nervous or have extenuating circumstances, I prefer that you come by yourself. Connecting with my clients is something I really enjoy, and that ends up happening more if its a one on one appointment.
How do I care for my new tattoo?
Detailed aftercare instructions will be provided for you at your appointment, but it's important to know that sunbathing, swimming, heavy exercising etc, is not recommended for the weeks after you get a new tattoo so it's good to plan accordingly.
It's also a good idea to wear loose fitting and dark clothing to avoid your tattoo getting rubbed and your clothing getting stained.
Do you accept Credit Cards?
Arrowhead Tattoo is cash only. If this is an issue for you please let me know and I can try and accommodate you. There are ATMS within walking distance to the studio.
How should I prepare for my appointment?
It is recommended that you eat a full meal prior to your appointment, as it's not uncommon to feel light-headed during your tattoo. Avoid drinking the night before and the day of your appointment, as well as taking any blood-thinning medications such as painkillers.
Wear comfortable clothing that will allow easy access to the area you plan on getting tattooed.
You cannot get tattooed if you are pregnant or nursing.
Should I arrive early?
Please be on time for your appointment, or no more than five minutes early. If you are more than 15 minutes late for your appointment, it might have to be rescheduled.
