Good day! Welcome to my website!
Q: How do I book with you?
A: I release new dates at the end of each month for the following month only. I post them on Instagram and then I choose who gets the appointments based on what fits my schedule best. I don’t have a waiting list. I always prioritize flash (existing drawings) but I also do custom work. If you want to get an appointment, follow my instructions closely- I’m sure you can understand that I don’t have time to follow up on every request if there’s information missing. Because I’m an asshole. But we all are. If you would like to get an email when I release dates for a specific months, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject ‘[month] bookings’ and I’ll send you the slots. E.g. If you want to book in July, email ‘July Bookings’ in the subject.
When Booking: When the appointment is booked, we’ll exchange a few ideas. To make this as efficient as possible, please be very precise about what you want. For example, include the total size in cm, whether you want shading or not etc. It always helps to include some images that you think are nice- either of my own work orpictures of the actual object. Please do not send drawings or tattoos by other people because I won’t do them- that’s boring for me and rude to the original artist. When I’ve sketched, I’ll send you a message that you should answer as quickly as possible. I often give myself an evening or two of drawing per week so if I don’t hear back promptly, I might not have the time to rework it. Please keep in mind that sketching is very time consuming. Of course it’s most important that you’re happy with the design, but I can only make so many changes before it becomes unsustainable for me. Also keep in mind that things normally look quite different on skin, and in my experience, they normally look better than on a white digital background.
Q: Can I use your design and get someone else to tattoo them on me?
A: No. This is my work, and I need to make money off it. I also design a lot of stuff specifically for each customer, and it’s not fair to them. I do simple line drawings anyway- I’m sure you can just do your own or get someone near you to draw something unique. It’s more fun and then I won’t have a fit!
Q: How much does it cost?
A: I price my tattoos per piece. They are rarely less than 1000sek and rarely more than 3000sek. This includes rent, supplies, and tax, which is about 60-65% of what you give me. This also includes the time I spend drawing and communicating. Per hour, I make very little money actually. Keep in mind that a tattoo is an investment that lasts for a long long time. If you’re willing to buy a pair of shoes that will last you a few months for 1000sek, then you should be willing to pay for a decent tattoo. Tips are appreciated. 🙂
Q: Are you going to visit ______ soon?
A: I always announce if I’m going to travel somewhere! If you follow me, you’ll know, I promise, cause I won’t shut up about it!
Q: What needles do you use?
A: It always depends on what I’m working on. You wouldn’t use a fat sharpie to draw a delicate flower. You get the point… I can’t really offer advice on hand poking because I’m self-taught and I don’t feel comfortable sharing something that’s so personal/might be wrong. My whole leg is covered in absolute garbage that I tattooed on myself… That’s how I learned. You have to do the same. Besides, you can’t really explain how to do it in words.
Q: Can I book an appointment with you X months down the line?
A: I book at the end of every month for the following month only. I like to stay spontaneous and I have no clue what I’ll be doing so far into the future. I’m also doing a bunch of other shit, and I don’t know what my schedule will be like with those things and I don’t want to make promises I can’t keep.
Q: You did this tattoo on someone. Can you do it on me too?
A: Probably not. I generally only do tattoos once. Some of them I do again and again, but very few. Otherwise my job gets boring af.
Q: Do you speak Swedish?
A: I understand that gobledygook but I won’t speak it because I’m shy and a coward.
