I enjoy projects that allow some freedom of design and on body placement rather than strict guidelines. I prefer larger projects that require little or no coverup work at all. I look for realistic black and grey imagery mainly wildlife portraits, portraits of people, still life imagery, historical paintings or sculptures, landscapes, etc. I also enjoy concepts that involve dark imagery including skulls, spirits, creatures, monsters, etc. I look for clients that are willing to put forth the time and financial investment that is necessary to receive the best possible tattoo.
If a cover-up is needed, I require more than one session to ensure that the cover-up process is complete.
I present your design on the day of your appointment. Any minor changes to the design may be done but any major changes may result in rescheduling your appointment and additional expense will occur.
Some designs may result in additional time as it may be necessary for me to draw directly on the body with markers on the day of your appointment.
Pricing and deposit
I price my tattoos at flat rates. Larger tattoo projects that I take on require a full day or multiple sessions. I try to help clients prepare and know what to expect for payments during our appointments. A full day is considered 6-8 hrs. with 8 hours being the most I work in a day. I accept all forms of payment but checks. There is a 7.5% sales tax rate for the city of Gahanna added to all credit card transactions. Deposits vary according to the length of your appointment, with $200 being the most required. Deposits are to secure your appointment time and will be applied toward your tattoo cost. All deposits are non-refundable.
Shop minimum: $100
Half-day (4 hrs.): $650
Full day (6-8 hrs.): $1000
Not all chosen projects will require an in-person consultation. If a consult is needed I will let you know and we can set up a date and time to meet at Greystone Tattoo Company. For non-consult appointments, I will send an invoice to your email for the deposit needed. I require a non-refundable deposit to secure your appointment date and time.
Rescheduling or Canceling Your Appointment
A 72- hr. notice is needed to reschedule your tattoo appointment. Anything less than a 72-hr. notice will result in a forfeit of your deposit. I only accept two reschedules per client.
Please arrive on time for your appointment. Once the design is approved and applied or drawn on the skin I will begin the tattoo process. I take 5 min stretch breaks at hour intervals and a 20-30 min lunch break generally around 4 p.m.
If your project was not chosen
If I do not accept your request it is usually due to it being out of my artistic interest or it would be to your benefit to seek an artist that specializes in what you are after. I would be happy to make a referral and answer any further questions you may have. I ask that you please check out other artist styles here at Greystone at www.greystonetattoocompany.com.
