About my practice:
All of the tattoos I do are handpoked. This means that they are done without a machine (poked by hand, with the same kind of needle used in a machine) and will take a bit longer than that of a machine. My body of tattoo work can be found on instagram.
Very small pieces take about an hour, medium (palm size) take around two hours, and larger (hand size or larger) can take upwards of three hours. Time spent on a tattoo varies by image / placement / amount of detail, and will dictate pricing.
To book an appointment with me, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. During an open booking period, I will respond to each inquiry personally.
About my tattoos:
My practice stems from my experience and work as an illustrator. All of the work I tattoo are line drawings, made in black ink only. I am open to custom drawings and color explorations for tattoos that align well with the work I do.
Please let me know what you're thinking of getting, what size, and where on your body you would like the tattoo. While I try not to put any limitations on where your tattoo will reside, I am a first year tattooist and do my best to exercise restraint on placements I believe are not suited for my method of tattooing / surpass my skill level. Thank you for your understanding and willingness to learn with me. In my response to you, I'll let you know what's possible! I also have a variety of flash images to choose from that I'm happy to send your way, and can be viewed here.
about the space:
I am currently working out of a private studio in Chicago. This is a shared co-working space. My appointments do have the privacy of a wall partition, however the studio itself is shared with other creatives.
We are a compassionate and thoughtful artspace. We are inclusive, diverse and uplift the voices and experiences of LGBTQ+, POC, and GNC individuals. Hateful and disrespectful behavior of any kind is not tolerated. We also commit ourselves to learning constantly – if there is any personal information you'd like us to know prior to your appointment, such as correct pronouns, please don't hesitate to let me know.
As my space is on the second floor of its building, please let me know in advance if you need use of an elevator to access the studio and I'm happy to make all possible accommodations.
