As I take on work within my own style and interests, having trust and freedom with the design is greatly preferred.
If you agree to give ‘artistic freedom’ in your booking form submission, I will collaborate with you by using your design ideas while applying my own expertise and artistic flair along with it to ensure you get the best possible tattoo. This means you will not have a heavy influence on your tattoo design.
Many factors are taken into consideration during the designing process such as your skin type (complexion/age/scars/skin condition etc.), which designs translate well to skin, placement on the body, sizing parameters, longevity of the tattoo (what’s going to age well over the years), if it’s a cover up etc.
I kindly request you keep an open mind with the design and tattooing process as I only want to do my best work, and having this trust really helps to create a successful tattoo.
You are being offered a tattoo appointment based off your design idea, therefore a change of mind can result in a cancelled or rescheduled appointment. This depends on how late notice the change of mind is, and whether or not the new design idea would have been accepted in the first place – this is decided on a case by case basis.
Minor changes to the design are usually not a problem at all, though difficulty coming to an agreement about the design once artistic freedom has been given to me by you, can result in a cancelled or rescheduled appointment.
