Creative Process Terms of Service

Consultation

The goal of the consultation is to answer questions, advance the visual and conceptual elements of the design. There is no guarantee of completion of the design.

We will discuss the details, go over your references and my own, and start sketching, drawing, patterning, and whatever steps are necessary to begin composing and designing your tattoo.

There is no deliverable for the consultation, meaning there is no photos, drawings, sketches, notes, etc. You are paying for time used, and service rendered.

I will charge a $100.00 design fee for your first session, which will begin  cover the time we spend developing it.  
If we do not need the entire time we will prorate your $100 and apply it towards your next session, and if we need extra time we will schedule more design time at my normal hourly rate.

At the close of this process, if we have completed the design  to your satisfaction, we will schedule your first tattoo session. If we have not completed the design we will schedule further design time at our normal hourly rate, or complete it during your initial tattoo session prior to tattooing.

Communication

We are working to stay on top of constantly changing communication standards and technology, incorporating, phone, text, email, and various social media platforms.

It is not easy, but we strive to remain flexible and current.

Posted Communication policy is email only, with a 5-7 day turnaround time. It is often sooner than this, sometimes instantaneous.

Emails will always be returned in the order in which they were received, however If you are going to use other means to get in touch, please be patient, and understand that our hands are busy and unable to view phones and/or type during the vast majority of our workday, leaving little time for correspondence outside of scheduled session time.
While many tattoo shops and artist are unavailable outside of the shop phone or scheduling process, we strive to remain available via text message, however at times it can fall a little bit behind.

In all cases, if your communication is not returned promptly, please assume that it may have been overlooked or not received. Please do not hesitate to try again (at a reasonable frequency and within a reasonable amount of time.)
Communication shall not be a grounds for complaint.

Preparation

Client is expected to arrive sober, on time, appropriately attired, and ready to be tattooed for tattoo sessions.
Please remember that the health of both you and other clients depends on maintaining a sanitary environment.
If the client does not arrive in a condition ready to be tattooed, the artists reserves the right to reschedule your appointment and a cancellation fee may be charged.
