-BOOKINGS ARE CLOSED
(now currently booked until MARCH)
I do emails solo, so please allow me extra time to write back to everyone. You’ll hear back even if I’m not the right artist for your idea xx
I do have a cancellation form, if you'd like to wait for a hopeful spot - if one comes up! *flexibile clientele only (find the tab above and located under 'bookings'
As some of you may or may not know, I am pregnant!! WOOOOO!
Pregnancy is different for everyone and I’ve never been through it before except for right now, so it’s all new to me - especially becoming a mum. I am due at the very end of May!
This is why I cannot plan too far in advance, I am currently booked until the end of March and from there on, I have to play it by feel and see how i’m going with the pregnancy.
AFTER THE BABY IS BORN,
I am honestly not planning on spending too long off work because I can’t imagine not tattooing - also the fact that I work with my husband will make things easier with a little one. Pending on how our baby is and how I am as well - will adjust the time I have off tattooing. But I am hoping to only have a few months off, I may post pop up appointments here and there, although I really can’t say at this point - just to be safe!
BELOW CONTAINS THE EMAIL I SENT OUT TO MY MAILING LIST ON 10TH AUGUST FOR MY NOV/DEC/JAN BOOKINGS.
I DO SEND OUT EMAILS IN THE LEAD UP TO MY BOOKINGS OPEN, BUT IT'S GOOD TO READ FOR A BIT MORE OF AN IDEA :)
Hi, Hi - well here's all the information you need!
(Plus me talking, because ya'll know I love to type)
If you've received these types of emails before, you would be used the routine, but for the newbies! Welcome! Also I just want to take a moment to tell you how happy it makes me feel that there's people out there that enjoy what I do!
So thank you, thank you!
This round of bookings is super exciting, because CHRISTMAS IS COMINGGGG, which means there is a bit of a break for me over the xmas period - and a change in how deposits work in regards to December and January.
Now let me finish before you exit the email and hate me forever.
Dec,Jan,Feb & March are notoriously known for being considered the flakey months. Things come up, summer is around, people forget they're not allowed to swim for min two weeks with a fresh tattie or expose it to the harsh sun.
So as a very itty bitty small business.
To combat this over December and January (November is normal), there will be a higher deposit taken - be mindful, the deposit still comes off the total price, meaning you have to pay less on the date of your appointment, more money for you around Christmas and the summer time. Win win for both of us!
Please continue reading as all the information in this email is important - anything you may be wondering, should be answered on my website OR can be answered once the booking process has commence (this email address is no:reply)
- I have a certain set up for how my bookings open
At the time and date my bookings open, you will be able to enter my website and head to the 'bookings' link, in that spot you will be able to click on to 'new client' or 'previous client'.
This allows us to categorise my emails in a way that I know works best.
- I have SO much information on my website regarding information about how I work as an artist, how I quote, my advice as aftercare etc etc. PLEASE go have a look and do a thorough read through as it is all important.
When emailing for your appointment, please keep it brief and to the point as you are more likely to gain a booking this way and it avoids a lot of unneeded back and forth emailing.
Make sure you know what you want!
DEPOSIT NEEDED TO SECURE BOOKING
A non-refundable $150 deposit is required to secure an appointment once you are offered a date. The $100 comes off the total price and the $50 is used as a drawing fee, that does not come off the total price.
DECEMBER & JANUARY
December and January will require a $150 deposit, not including the additional drawing fee. (November runs normally - see above)
LARGE OR ON-GOING PIECES
X-LARGE PIECE PLZ!
You have priority booking period.
I love doing smaller pieces but the larger the piece, the more freedom, the more I can grow individually as an artist. Things I'll be mostly interested in are large free flow florals, birds with flowers, full panel pieces i.e: full forearm, outer bicep, calf pieces, back pieces/half back pieces, pieces that compliment the body shape, large front thigh/side of thigh etc
Not saying you have to have a large idea to email,
just something I'd love to do as well!
I will definitely be accepting small pieces, these will be booked around medium/large pieces as thats what will work best for this booking period :)
My minimum and maximum prices are written on my website.
*Please be aware that at the beginning of September, my day rate has changed.
- - - If you send an enquiry and Ness/I come to the conclusion that I am not the artist for you, we will try our hardest to recommend someone more suited to your needs - - -
- As my previous clients would be aware,
I have an assistant (Ness) who replies to my emails.
Just to let you all know, it's not to disconnect myself from my audience - it's simply to get the ball rolling more efficiently and make sure you're all responded to (regardless of if I'm the artist for you or not!).
This allows me to not be as much of a stress head and to focus more on designs without feeling like I am letting you down for making you wait in my inbox without a reply!

Looking so forward to talking to you, GET INSPIRED. I'M INSPIRED!!
