To help save valuable time, I created this page to give you more insight into getting an appointment scheduled. Please take time to read through it. In order to help combat the overwhelming messages coming through multiple platforms, please email, after reading all information. If you have not received a response within 2 weeks, feel free to send a follow up email. Although I try my best, I can not accommodate everyone.

We do NOT offer any services to minors at Hand Forged Tattoo.

I present designs on the day of the appointment, and make any necessary changes then.

Anything up to 4 hours will be booked under a “half day” appointment. Anything over 4 hours will be booked under a “full day” appointment. You will be charged hourly for the time that you are tattooed. Your time is started when the skin prep for your tattoo begins. The timer is paused when I need to take a break. There isn’t any shady stuff going on when it comes to how you are being charged. You can ask what the time is at any time we stop to take a break. Half day appointments require a $200 deposit and full day appointments require a $400 deposit. Please let me know if there are any limitations to how long you can sit for one session, when booking your appointment.

Cash is preferred on the day of your appointment. All card transactions will include a 3.5% surcharge fee. There is also an ATM on location.

Our address and phone number are posted in our contact page as well as our Facebook and Instagram pages. Thank you for taking the time to read this. I look forward to creating great artwork for you.

Rate: $200 per hour. A full sleeve on a large person with long arms can be considerably more than a petite, short person. Sleeves and back pieces can take around 35-45 hours on average to fully complete. Depending on design and other variables, it could take more or less time.

Consultation fee:$50 Please email me, before booking, to make sure a consultation will be necessary. Most tattoos don’t require it.

You must schedule an appointment before coming in, including for consultations. Full day sessions start at 10am. Half day sessions start no later than 1pm. Click Here to book an appointment, or check availability, once you have received confirmation.
