frequently asked questions

How do I make an appointment?

Please carefully read the booking info to find out which info I need from you. I prefer to book only one appointment per day. This allows me to give you full attention and the best focus to work on your tattoo.

What does the process look like after I made a request?

When I receive your request, I will contact you as soon as possible to discuss your idea and further details with you. After we confirm on a date, I will send you the details for the deposit. Once I received the deposit your appointment is confirmed (please also see “Do I have to make a deposit for an appointment”). On the day of our appointment we will take some time to discuss the design, and make adjustments where needed. For larger scale work, the design (or sometimes a mock-up) is used as a guideline as my aim is to make something that suits to your body. Please keep in mind that my work is very intuitive and a lot of details etc only emerge when I start tattooing. Don’t plan anything straight after our appointment/ if you are travelling please allow some time before you travel back.

Do I have to make a deposit?

The appointment is only confirmed after I received your deposit and have sent you a confirmation email. I will not start designing prior to that. I will send you the details for the deposit via e-mail. Please make sure that you transfer the deposit within a week. Depending on the size of the work, a deposit can vary from 100 – 300 euros. The deposit is a part of the total price of the tattoo and is a necessary safety for me and the studio. Deposits are nun-refundable. The deposit covers the minimum charges of keeping that day for you; as it’s not always possible to fill up that day again, my day of work is lost.

I’ve experienced some issues in the past with people going through the whole booking process with me, to then disappear at the last moment when the deposit needs to be made. If you are in doubt about something please know that you can always speak to me about it. Not showing up on an appointment, or disappearing after we went through the booking process via mail, will result in me not tattooing you in the future, ever. I don’t like to do it this way, but unfortunately I see no other way.

How much will my tattoo cost?

Many factors affect the price of your tattoo, but I will always give you an estimate beforehand. I work with an hourly rate including 21% VAT tax. For larger work I charge a flat day rate. This means I have all day available for you (11:00-18:00). For larger projects it is possible to split it in two or more session and spread the costs.

Will you be travelling to …( Insert city) anytime soon? 

All travel plans will be announced on my Instagram page and my website. Nothing there? Then I don’t have any travel plans 🙂

Do you do small tattoos?

Rarely, but if it’s a cool idea, hey, I might be up for it! I do have smaller designs in my flashbook available for tattooing.

Do you work with color?

No.

Are there still plants available in the VINTAGE ’52 project?

Yes, this project will remain open until all the flowers have been tattooed.

Good to know:

There are a few places I prefer not to work on; face, behind the ears, fingers and rib area. Depending on your idea, I might not be able to accept your request for these areas. My designs do not lend themselves very well for cover-ups, since I like to work quite minimalistic. It should go without saying that I won’t tattoo any kind offensive symbols, appropriate cultural symbolism or copy a tattoo you saw from another artist/on the internet. If you want something similar to what I have tattooed before, we can always discuss a variation on the subject.
