How do I set up an appointment for a tattoo?
Please review my portfolio before submitting a request to make sure that your vision is in line with my style and with what I can offer. Full color realism, watercolor, galaxy/landscape and creative portrait projects with fewer restrictions, as well as scar cover ups will get scheduling priority.
To book an appoitment you must submit a request here. If we decide to go forward with the appointment you'll be requiered to make a deposit to secure the time of the appointment. Consultations are most often not needed and do not require a deposit.
Do you do Tattoo Cover Ups?
Yes, but not all tattoos can be covered up and in some cases laser removal may be suggested to lighten up the old tattoo, in order to achieve the best cover up. I do prefer to do coverups in full color to achieve the best results, and you must be open to a significantly larger tattoo than the area you want covered up. Old tattoos must be at least 3-6 months healed prior to the cover-up.
Do you do Scar Cover ups?
Yes, and it’s one of my favorite things to do. I do not however do “skin tone tattoos” or color correction on scars, but I exclusevely tattoo designs over scars instead. I most cases covering up scars will require multiple sessions as the skin can be unpredictable in the way that it holds the ink, so it may need a second pass or a touch up after the ink settles ink the scar tissue. You must be open to an area considerably larger tattoo than the scarred area orfor some of the scars to peek out a bit.
Do you tattoo dark skin tones?
Absolutely! I tattoo all skin types and complexions. I always tailor my color palette to fit each individual, as not all color pigments work on everyone.
Are there any tattoos that you refuse to do?
I DO NOT REPLICATE other people's tattoos, other artists’ work, your friends’ drawings or your own drawings, as I draw ALL of my own artwork. I DO NOT incorporate script or lettering into images and I do not tattoo script in laguanges that I do not speak (I speak Spanish, French and English). I do not tattoo symbols that may be culturally insensitive with NO EXCEPTIONS.
Where are you located? Is this space Queer-Friendly?
I am based out of New Orleans but currently traveling all over doing guest spots. Check out my contact page here for details on locations and travel dates. All shops and/studios I tattoo at are Queer Friendly and Body Positive.
