How does the process work?
If you are interested in getting work from me, you can fill out the contact form on this website or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
For larger, multi-session pieces a consultation is usually preferred, but it's often not necessary for smaller, one-shot tattoos. At the consultation we can discuss your ideas and take a tracing of the area of the body to be tattooed.
A minimum $100 nonrefundable deposit is required in order to secure an appointment. Larger pieces may require a larger deposit. Cash and cards are accepted. The deposit will be applied towards the last session of your tattoo.
I have a strict cancellation policy.
48 hours notice is required in order to cancel or reschedule or deposit will be forfeited. Of course I understand that life happens--contact me as soon as possible.
Creating your Tattoo:
After the consultation I will make a custom drawing for you. I do not email previews or finished drawings. If at your tattoo appointment changes are necessary, they can usually be made on the spot. I always welcome your feedback.
For your tattoo appointment:
Please arrive clean, well-rested, sober, and pretty please no perfumes or fragrances! Be sure you arrive with a full stomach to stay fueled up for getting tattooed. Your body needs fuel for the process!!
"I have been tattooing professionally since 2008, after getting my start at a shop in the Midwest shortly after graduating high school. I fell in love with tattooing but took a long road to making it my profession after eventually finding myself in the Pacific Northwest. I respect the magic of tattooing daily and I am truly grateful to be one of the lucky few who can get paid for doing what they love. Tattooing inspires me, challenges me, humbles me, and enables me to provide for my family. I owe my life to the craft and to the badass clients I get to meet along the way. My specialties are in Japanese and American traditional style tattooing, but I am open to all ideas and enjoy other styles. I own and operate Hold Fast Tattoo in Port Townsend, WA. I also make regular trips to Seattle to guest spot at Hidden Hand Tattoo in Fremont."
