DO YOU TAKE WALK INS?
No. Sanctuary Tattoo Gallery is an appointment based studio. Every day I focus on my client or clients for that day. To book an appointment or consult head over to the contact page! I take projects that are large scale with creative freedom as priority, however I do my best to get everyone who contacts me in my books.
HOW DO I MAKE AN APPOINTMENT?
IS A RETAINER FEE REQUIRED?
Yes. A retainer fee is always required. The pricing varies based on the work being done. They are meant to hold a date, time, and drawing for your appointment. The fee will also come off of the total cost of your tattoo. Retainer Fees are NON-REFUNDABLE.
WHAT FORMS OF PAYMENT DO YOU ACCEPT?
Cash is always preferred but I also take credit, Paypal, or Venmo.
The best way to set up an appointment or consult is through the contact page or to email me directly at
Please keep in mind I am only one person so responses can take up to a week or two.
HOW CAN I PREPARE FOR MY TATTOO?
Have no time constraints the day of your appointment. Having an open window relieves any pressure that could be added to your experience. Show up 10-15 minutes early. Make sure you are well-rested! Dress comfortable, be well hydrated, and eat a decent meal before you come in for your appointment. If you know you will be sitting for a long period of time bring snacks or drinks! You are also welcome to bring distractions. Laptops, books, listening to your own music or movies (WITH headphones) is ok. It is also okay to bring one friend with you to the appointment.
WHEN WILL I SEE MY DESIGN?
You will see your design for the appointment in person on the date we schedule. I no longer send out drawings before appointments due to theft and not having enough time to go back and fourth with all of my clients for the next few months. This is because my drawing time is when i'm at home. To compensate for this it will be very likely that your appointment will be my only one for the day. This way we have ample time to go over everything together in case there are any changes that need to be made.
Cost depends on size and complexity of your piece, I do my best to give my clients a ballpark figure however I do charge by the hour (175/hr). For sleeves and other large scale projects pricing is a bit different. This will be discussed between us when we talk about your tattoo idea.
