While I usually book in two month intervals, I am currently studying full-time at Art School and this has further limited the time I have available for tattoo appointments. As a result, I will not be opening my books for the remainder of 2023, and will instead send out an email/newsletter to my mailing list and post on my socials on occasion when I have time available to tattoo (such as school holidays).
I will give a time and date with roughly a weeks notice when the link will open to fill in the booking request form. Unfortunately, I cannot guarantee that I will be able to accomodate everyone as there are limited spaces. Aside from tattooing and now studying, I am a practicing artist, I own and run my studio FLT and have a disability, so I am unable to tattoo full-time and limit my bookings to ensure I have the time and capacity to deliver the highest quality tattoos for my clients. I understand that the increased wait time for a tattoo can be frustrating and if I had a TARDIS I'd do it all, but if you don't want to wait, my amazing colleagues Brooke Steele and Dan Arnold do beautiful fine line black and grey and I highly recommend all my talented colleagues at FLT.
When the books do open and you send your booking request, please allow up to two weeks for a response, there is no need to send follow up emails. My assistant or I will respond to every request and you will receive an automated email containing any important information and answering frequently asked questions. Be sure to check your email including junk mail for a response so you don’t miss out on an appointment. Please do not send booking requests while the books are closed.
Priority will be given to continuing work and pieces that are best suited to my style and interests. Bookings are based off the design idea and creative freedom, I ask that my clients trust in my skill and experience and remain flexible on the design elements, in particular size. I will occasionally post available designs or flash to my social media and these will also be given priority. I tattoo custom pieces of my own design and in my style only. My work is best described as illustrative and I primarily tattoo in the blackwork etching style, however, I love to do tattoo in colour or smooth black and grey. I particularly enjoy tattooing fantastical and mythological creatures, occult imagery, retro sci-fi art, recreating artworks by the Surrealists and Pre-Raphaelites etc and in particular, cross-hatch portraits and pet portraits.
As I tattoo within particular styles, I cannot accomodate every tattoo request, this is not personal. I strive to deliver the highest quality work for my clients and it is important to create work I believe in. If I feel that a design or idea is not suited to my style or focus, I am happy to refer you to another artist and I highly recommend my talented colleagues at FLT Tattoo Studio. Please be sure to look at my work and the styles I do before sending a booking request, there are many amazing artists and each of them will have their own personal style and preferences for subject matter, so there is an artist for everyone.
