For custom tattoos, a deposit will be taken before your artist begins to work on your design. Deposits are non-refundable and will be forfeited if you fail to show up for your appointment or do not schedule your appointment within three months. The deposit will be subtracted from the price of your tattoo.
This policy is in place to keep the focus on serious clients, so artists can give you the most attention possible and make sure your tattoo is exactly what you want. The deposit ensures you that your artist will continue to work until you are satisfied with the tattoo concept.
Note: A custom tattoo is drawn individually for you. That also means you can expect a degree of the artist's personal style in each creation. Artists are happy to work on your piece to make sure it will be your favorite tattoo and it best meets your needs, while still maintaining artistic integrity and character, and they can make small changes here and there.
Excessive re-draw requests and drawing time may require an upcharge, however, in proportion for the size of the tattoo and the amount of time spent working on it. All tattoo rates factor in an average amount of drawing time, so excessive drawing time will reflect the additional work requested. This is rare occurrence and only applies to projects that are significantly more complicated or time-consuming than average.
