Art has always been a big part of my life. I enjoy meeting new people and pushing my limits. The feeling I get after doing a piece, and seeing the client happy, is an addiction. Many clients often come in with great stories about the pieces they want and I love hearing those too.
As crazy as 2020 has been, Chip was very understanding and took all the health precautions necessary to make me feel safe. He really made me feel at home and he was easy to talk to.The work was amazing and I would go back for another tattoo.
Chip was great and very professional, he knows his stuff and if you know what you want bring it to him and he can surely make your vision a reality!
First thing is to establish some sort of relationship with you and find out what you are interested in getting. Design, size, placement, existing art, time frame...all these things matter. Hearing the story behind the tattoo can also important. I will always ask for reference material.
Ultimately, I would like your tattoo to compliment your body, and any other work you have in the area, so it's possible I may break the conversation down and offer alternatives to the request if I feel it's not in line with your best interests. Ultimately it's still up to you.
Somewhere around this point, I may make up a mockup in Photoshop for you so we can refine the project to a clearer picture for both of us. Once the design is somewhat finalized and agreed upon, the cost for the design and procedure is calculated @ at a flat rate. If accepted, our availablity is established and together we find an appropriate time to meet. Sometimes it may be the case where we will need to meet up before hand.
Upon arrival, new clients are asked to sign a release form and provide ID to be kept on file. If the design has not already been sized ahead of time, that is done and a stencil is created. Once dry, off we go.
Pieces are always quoted by the project. Not hourly.
