hi! please read all of this page and any links that relate to your tattoo project. this will save us both time and set clear expectations about the work that i am offering.
i can take on projects that have a clear direction. please know what you want tattooed, and where.
i am also prioritizing predrawn images, seen on my instagram. my current portfolio & booking timeline are available on instagram as well.
i do not provide previews of tattoo designs. if you need a lot of communication before your tattoo, that's fine! but i am probably not the right artist for you. my goal is to work with clients who know what they want, and like the design choices that i make, so that we are both confident that i will make choices that you like.
it helps me to refer to projects i've already done with elements that you want to include. hearing no is good for me too, so if suggestion doesn't hit home, a decisive no helps the process along. please do not send me images of other artists' tattoos as reference. what helps me most is images of work that i've done, photos from life (of animals, plants etc) or art in other media (paintings, printmaking, etc.)
if you are passionate about a subject and think you can teach me something new about it, i can be convinced to go outside of my usual material.
right now i am pursuing tattoo work that incorporates these topics :
sketchy, etchy, dead, cute. i usually work directly from a reference photo, or several. i have a great collection of images - please share yours if you have favorites. consider the mood that you'd like your animal to show.
plants are really intuitive and easy for me, and once you pick your plants then i can have some options ready for you at your appointment.
i have studied plants extensively and am stoked to learn more about them from you.
large work takes priority. i love lettering that is large, conceptual, experimental. i have a lot of ideas for projects here, & welcome yours as well. the content is your choice. if you want a small text tattoo, consider getting it in the same session as a larger tattoo.
i like learning about geometric methods and concepts, so you get bonus points if you can teach me something about geometry. these clients brought in unique ideas for me to incorporate. i don't really care for "sacred" geometry, though i could be convinced. :)
i'd like to do some black n grey or etching portraits, anything graphic/experimental. most interested in : science, politics, classic painting/sculpture, activism, history.
etching style, blackwork, blackout, dotwork, blastover, illustrative, comic book, video games, witchy, occult, books, literature, mythology, medical, teeth, glitch, experimental tattooing, nerd stuff. i am really interested in tattooing people with pigmentation disorders such as vitiligo, albinism, piebald syndrome.
if you like what you see here, we might be a good match. trust is important in the tattoo/client relationship - if you trust that this is the style you're interested in, then you can trust me to run with your idea once you figure out what you want and where you want it.
