About this pro

I have a passion for arts and believe that every tattoo has a meaning or story behind it; whether you draw it yourself or assist me in creating a work of art or take something from multiple pictures and combine them; it is a one of a kind. I have all necessary equipment, can and will travel if need be or client can come to me and relax in my home  shop. I’ve been tattooing for about  7 yrs and did an apprenticeship for 4yrs two in California and two in Oklahoma.

I enjoy meeting new people learning new techniques and designs, seeing the interesting things and knowing why a person picked a specific Design.

    There was a place for my kids to hang out and that was a deal breaker since I'm a single mom. She was so easy to talk to and had a great time. Also made a friend for life. I will only go to Leilani for a tattoo.

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

Talking to them and find out a little about them; their likes dislikes, what type activities they enjoy, maybe about their personal life, and also what it is they want and where they want it. Usually it's due to seeing a photo or person or something that made them spark a thought of wow that would look great on me. I try to find out if I’m needed to draw something or if they already have what they want done. Then we talk price, I don’t believe in charging as much as most of the local shops do. So, usually people are very happy with my price


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I’ve had 13yrs experience and I did 2yr internship in California and 2yrs in Oklahoma. I’ve done over 400 tattoos. I've been blood pathogen trained, and also did a year of nursing. Also have a deep love for all art and I'm always striving to learn new techniques and making new designs.


Do you have a standard pricing system for your services? If so, please share the details here.

I have a minimum of $50 or if I go to the customer I do have to charge a little more (gas isn’t free). If the client doesn’t really know what they want and needs me to design and draw something up; then I will charge for my time. Since that can be a timely process. Otherwise not treakky standard, I charge about 3/4-1/2 what the shops charge. That's y having a shop at home is nice 


How did you get started in this business?

I’ve always loved tattoos and art. I used to watch my friends getting tattoos and drew a lot of tattoos which are on people I know to this day. One day a friend asked me why I didn’t tatt and handed me their machine sat down and said do something on me. Starting teaching me from that moment on.


What types of customers have you worked with?

All types, sizes, gender, race, attitude, & class. I offer something most tattoo shops don't; I have an area where the kids of my clients can either play wii u or watch movies or play outside. Plus I offer refreshments for no extra charge. 


What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a pro in your area of expertise?

When hiring a tattoo artist you want to make sure it’s someone you can jive with. If you can’t stand the person giving you a tattoo chances are they can tell. Besides having someone up close and personal like that you should be extremely comfortable. Understand that some artist take longer to apply a tattoo then others, just be patient. You don't want your artist to feel rushed because that's when they mess up. 


What questions should customers think through before talking to pros about their needs?

Customers should know What they want and where they want it. remember tattoos do occasionally hurt depending on where you get them. Ask if they have a numbing cream. If you want a color tattoo and the artist only does black and grey then you won’t be happy. If you don't like how it looks speak up!! Before they start.. otherwise only one you can be mad at is yourself..
