What are Your rates?
i charge by the design, size and placement of the tattoo
I have a day rate option of $800 - $1,000 which is 5+ hours
this includes the set-up, stencil process and drawing fee.
My half day rate is $600
do you need a deposit?
Yes a deposit is a requirement to secure a appointment date
i take a deposit of
-$5 Booking Fee which does not come off the total cost of the tattoo and is not refundable.
All deposits come off the total cost of the tattoo on the day, unless we need to do multiple sessions on a tattoo which means we use the deposit on the final session.
I will send you options for paying a deposit when booking a appointment.
Please note my cancellation policy:
All deposits are non-refundable. If you cancel or reschedule your sitting at least 48 hours prior to your sitting, I reserve the right to issue you Credit or a voucher at our discretion.
Please note that no shows = forfeit 100% of your deposit.
When do I get to see the design?
You won’t see the design drawn up for you until the day of the tattoo appointment.
So it is important to be specific with your ideas. In saying this, please don’t hesitate to let me know on the day if there are any changes you would like to make to the design , it’s no problem at all and I half expects it.
What are My favourite things to tattoo?
Nature inspired things! I love doing Floral, Animals & Birds.
How do we move forward with a appointment date?
Once you have filled out the form or emailed all of the information to me, I will try my between to get back to you within 2-5 business days.
Please keep in mind I do tattoo all day then I design tattoos at night, I am very busy but I do try best to get back to you when I can.
I will let you know what dates I have available then will send through deposit details to secure the appointment plus other tips and tricks to do with making the tattoo appointment easier!
Can I bring a friend?
Yes you most certainly can, as long as they are respectful of the studio and of Me trying to concentrate on the tattoo.
and children are not permitted in the studio for hygiene purposes
I highly recommends that the friend brings something to entertain themselves quietly with also, e.g book or a laptop etc.
You can have people visit throughout the appointment but only one person at a time.
Where is the studio you work in?
I was at Memory Lane Tattoo Studio in Whangarei,
But I am now working full time at Ink Rush Tattoos
The address is 368 Great North Road, Henderson, Auckland 0612 New Zealand
Can we stop in for a chat?
When I am tattooing all my focus is on the client and tattoo, so if you could message or book a consultation before coming in to chat.
If I am available and not doing a tattoo you are most welcome to stop in, if I don’t reply I am busy tattooing and can’t chat.
Thank you, x
