HOW MUCH DO THE ARTISTS CHARGE
Alexis charges 150 dollars an hour with a non-refundable 200 dollar deposit required at the time of booking. Each other artist has their own pricing and most will price your tattoo by the piece if its not something too large.
Our shop minimum is 80 dollars. That is the base price of where our tattoos start and depending on the size, style, location on the body, etc,
Alexis also requires a 4 hour minimum commitment for portrait tattoos. The four hour minimum is not about cost, it is about the quality of the art and she needs at least 4 hours to lay the foundation for the design. Portrait tattoos are based off a photograph, therefore a HIGH QUALITY photo is needed and must be submitted and approved prior to booking. A follow up session is also required due to the fact that Alexis has multiple layers to her portraits. Locations of portraits are selective and can be negotiated. Human portraits can be done in black and grey, but Alexis prefers to do animals in color. A portrait can be no smaller than 6 inches. Also please understand that Alexis prefers house pets and does not like doing jungle animals in realism.
CAN YOU COVER UP/ REWORK/ ADD ON TO MY TATTOO
cover ups and reworks are on a case by case basis. We will determine if anything can be done after looking at the existing tattoo. Consults are required for both cover-ups and reworks. *Alexis will not add onto or finish existing tattoos that she did not do, but one of our other artists may be able to assist you!
CAN I BRING IN MY OWN ARTWORK THAT I, MY FRIEND, MY KID ETC. DID......
As much as we appreciate the sentiment of this idea, we try to remain a completely custom shop. If its custom art that yourself or someone has created for you we can certainly work with you, however images of existing tattoos or pictures from the internet will be modified so as to remain custom for you. Some artists here may be able to work with you depending on what your reference is, however Alexis only creates tattoos that are %100 her artwork, using reference photos as ideas and not concrete imagery.
CAN I SEE A DRAWING BEFORE HAND
This varies depending on which artist you are getting tattooed by. Some artists here are willing to get a design prepared in advance for you, however Alexis cannot send out any art beforehand. She only takes one large appointment a day which allows for sufficient time the day of the tattoo to make any modifications at that time if needed.
HOW DO I SCHEDULE AN APPOINTMENT/CONSULT
The best way is through our email at firstname.lastname@example.org. or through or contact section here on the website. The shop assistant amy will respond in a timely manner. To book with Alexis you will want to contact us 2 months in advance. She books at the beginning of each month for the following month (so for example if you want an appt in June, you would want to email May 1)
WHAT KIND OF TATTOOS DO THE ARTISTS PREFER
Each artist has their own style which can be viewed by looking at their portfolios, also you can always just ask what they like to do or prefer to do. *Alexis however is trying to focus on refining her portfolio after 18 years of tattooing. She prefers color new school, and stylized realism. Please if you are interested in being tattooed by her, check our her instagram @alexischeetah for examples of what she enjoys to do. Also do please do not be offended if your idea is not something that she would want to do, she wants her clients to have the best work possible therefore she wants to enjoy what she's doing. If you are not sure who would be best for your concept, just email and we can point you in the right direction.
