Terms and Conditions of tattoo service
Terms & Conditions 2022 – valid without signature by payment of agreed upon deposit.
If you ever feel unfairly treated, please always communicate this to me so we can work out an agreement and keep the mood and the outcome positive. If at any point you need to change, amend or modify and aspect of our work together, contact me directly.
Here are some conditions that I believe all clients should understand before moving forward with any work. Read then completely and ask any questions necessary to ensure your complete understanding.
To plan time for your tattoo I need a deposit payment.
By paying the deposit you automatically agree to what is laid out in this statement. This statement acts as a terms and conditions for our work together.
The amount of this deposit is variable depending on the project and stated below.
The deposit is going to be deducted from the last session of this project.
Deposits are non-refundable so plan well before placing any money in the account.
Please always communicate any delay or other event that interferes with your appointment with me as soon as possible so I can accommodate your situation to my best ability. If notified within 72 hours of appointment i will require another deposit.
Art is never sent beforehand. When you arrive for the first appointment you will get to check out and okay the artwork. If any changes are needed, I will do so right then. If it's a complete design change, we will have to reschedule at the soonest date that works for both of us. Usually within a week or two.
Once we start the process of your tattoo, I will tattoo and you will get tattooed. Trust is an important aspect of this process. I trust you to care for your tattoo and show up on the agreed upon times, you trust me to do quality work.
I won’t make any changes to anything we agreed upon without consulting you unless you have explicitly given me this kind of creative freedom. I will do my best to explain my choices to you and ensure that you feel educated in the decisions being made.
If you suggest changes mid-project, I am not comfortable with for aesthetic or other reasons, I reserve the right to finish my work as planned (if possible) before implementing those changes to avoid regrets on both sides.
Of course, my main goal is to finish the project to YOUR satisfaction, but your trust and patience is necessary for our work together.
To protect my privacy and creative freedom, I reserve the right to pause or terminate the project should working with you become intolerable due to your neglect of any of the points in these Terms and Conditions.
