Hopefully, this page will answer all your initial questions but, if if doesn’t, please feel free to drop me a line with any extra questions you may have using the button below
There are 2 different emails you can contact me on.
firstname.lastname@example.org is checked by my long suffering wife and partner in crime – Karen. We primarily use this email to answer travel, booking & general enquiries. It’s checked everyday throughout the day (because Karen is very efficient!) So if you need a quick answer to any question this is the best email to use.
The other way of contacting me is to my personal email: email@example.com. This email is primarily for discussing artwork/theme ideas with me direct as it’s the email address on my phone etc. I usually answer any messages at the end of the day because I have gloves on for most of the daylight hours so you’ll have to bear with me!
For appointments at my studio in the UK my day rate is £600
I try to keep my waiting list to around 6-9 months. Because any more than that kind of freaks me out and it’s a total pain for clients!
By Plane: Birmingham International – BHX
By Car: The Studio is situated just off junction 4 M5 and junction 1 M42
By Train: To Birmingham New Street, change for Barnt Green or Longbridge (we can arrange to pick you up from station) email for details.
By Bus: 144 from Birmingham, Smallbrook Queensway to Worcester which stops in Catshill (takes about 35 min)
Initially, I like to have a chat with every client either in person, by phone or Skype/FaceTime or email to properly discuss your idea. So please email me a rough outline of your ideas/themes along with placement, size and photos of the area you want me to tattoo to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Then we can chat via email and – if we need to – on the phone/Skype/FaceTime/carrier pigeon! and decide on the best images, colours placement etc. Sometimes email is hard to get you idea over so I find it helps to just talk it through sometimes. It’s also a lot quicker!
I’m happy to work from either your idea, adjust one of my pieces to suit you or even just tattoo a piece of my artwork on you. Tattooing for me is all about putting the right artwork on EVERY client. I don’t care about instagram likes or awards etc – I want you to have the best tattoo for YOU.
Once both we’re both happy to proceed all you have to do is pay £100 booking fee and then a further £200 artwork fee 2 months before your first booking. These will be deducted from the final cost of your tattoo and Karen will email you a reminder.
Of course many of my clients just want a piece of my artwork and that’s awesome! So I keep a stock of images that you can choose from to either use as a starting point for your idea or simply have ‘as is’. It’s totally up to you. These designs are on my website but they’re hidden in a ‘client only’ area.
If you want to take a look at them Karen will send you a link and the password when she sends you your booking confirmation.
I’m not currently doing many conventions or guest spot etc as I prefer to just work at my studio. It’s comfortable and the coffee is (generally) better. As long as Lucasz isn’t making it 😉
If you want to get tattooed by me while I’m at a convention or at a guest spot please join my mailing list – the signup is on the contact page, here on my website.
I announce all my travel plans, special projects to my mailing list FIRST. I don’t send many emails (1 a month) so you wont be inundated with crap from me! Just mostly shop news, stuff about travel, artwork and discounted sessions/flash days at the shop.
