Welcome welcome, and thank you for your interest!
Please read about my process to ensure we are a good fit for each other. If you already have read that, some of this might be redundant. Please enjoy my redundancy!
I don’t currently have the bandwidth to do custom designs. That being said, if you have a custom design idea that you think will go well with my style, tell me about it!
Ideally, my clients send me reference of tattoos or drawings I’ve made in the past that they like, and if I’ve already given that piece of flash to someone else, we work together at the appointment to make it special and unique to the wearer.
Applicants wanting larger, more recent flash will be given priority.
Accepted applicants will be contacted within a week or two. If you do not receive an email within a week(ish) after applying, that means I unfortunately was unable to work with you this time. But don't lose hope! Just apply again for the following month, and know that I will reach out to you if I've got any cancellations (or post about said cancellations on IG!) ~:)
I do my best to schedule as many people as possible, and am always working to find the balance between my responsibility to my wonderful clients and my physical and mental health. I appreciate your patience in my doing so.
Q: What is your rate?
A: I charge by the piece, and my rate typically ranges between $250 and $600.
Q: What days do you work?
A: Wednesdays-Saturdays, with a start time of 12/1pm with my last appointment starting at 6/7pm.
Q: How long does a tattoo usually take?
A: My designs typically take between two and four hours to apply to the skin. However, (because scheduling is HARD, and I sometimes get backed up) it's best for you to be flexible the day of your tattoo.
Please don't schedule anything very important immediately after your appointment. I can't stress this enough—I will not rush your or anyone else's permanent artwork because of a dinner date, no matter how delicious! Also, be aware that if you're running over 30 minutes late, I may have to reschedule you.
Q: Is payment due at the time of my tattoo?
A: Yes, payment is due at your tattoo appointment (CARD ONLY PLEASE) and your $100 deposit will be deducted from the final fee. Sales tax + processing fee added (8%).
Q: How will I know if my appointment is confirmed?
A: If I can fit you in the books (fingers crossed that I am able!), you'll first receive an email letting you know the date and time, with further instructions to send your deposit and accept the Google Cal invite (which will have very important details, like price, address, time, date, etc). You'll know that your appointment is a for-real-deal when we email you final confirmation.
Q: Do I have to place a deposit down to secure an appointment?
A: Yes, a $100 non-refundable deposit will be paid via Venmo @jellythorn. I ask that the deposit is sent in within 48 hours of you receiving my appointment confirmation email. If you don't do this, I will give your appointment to the next person in line.
Q: Where are you located?
A: Welcome Home is located in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, off of the Nassau G stop, or the Graham L stop. We choose to keep our address private as we feel it is important to do so in order to maintain a safe space.
Q: What happens if I have to cancel?
A: If you do have to cancel your appointment, you forfeit your deposit and it won't rollover to a different appointment that we schedule together.
Once your appointment is scheduled, you will receive the address and directions via a Google Calendar invite.
Thank you for reading this very long and arduous list of factoids! If you have any questions, please reach out!
