Before you contact me for your tattoo project,
please take a look at my portfolio and ask yourself: "is this the style I want for my tattoo?"
It 's a dark contemporary graphic style with a lot of linework, scribbles, some darker or sometimes colored areas and ink splatters, skratchwork, ....
I love doing skulls and dark and somber stuff. I love Skulls, bats and demons. I also love doing abstract compositions and skratchy contemporary lettering.
Things I don't do: pure geometric stuff, too girly or too happy stuff, too round stuff, polynisian tattoos and tribals, dafont letterings or small tattoos like infinity signs and such, no old school or new school or traditional work and no realism. There are so much better tattooers than me for these kind of things to which I can guide you. I don't like doing watches, compasses, dates, world maps, tattoos around travelling or biking or most sports unless I can add skulls or demons or break everything down....
Conception and booking
For personal projects I am working with a flexible agenda that opens and closes a few times in the year depending on the demands and the available time slots.
The booking of a flash design is possible during the whole year.
At this moment my agenda is OPEN for personal projects.
If you want to book an appointment for your personal project, the first step is to send me an email when my agenda opens.
I will be needing the following info of you:
Name and location.
Brief description or theme of your project.
What area would you like to tattoo more or less+ photo if possible.
How big do you see the tattoo more or less .(cm)
Would you like your project in black or with some colours.
If you want to add some inspirational photos or texts, don't hesitate.
Other relevant information regarding the project (personal stories etc).
Know, that I don't rework or copy existing drawings or tattoos.
I like fresh designs springing from fresh ideas. :) You give me the idea of your project, and I'll do the drawing, I will think of the composition etc. I really like this part of the work so the more freedom I have regarding this subject, the better the results will be.
I do accept a small part of modifications on my designs but I also have my limits.
On the contrary: if you don't have a really neat idea of the project you want, don't worry, I always have plenty of them! And I would love to take the time to discuss together to find what tattoo would suit you best.
Now the waiting can begin... I try to respond as fast as possible but it might easily take some weeks before you will have an answer.
Don't worry I am responding to all emails (positive or negative).
I am selecting the projects which speak to me the most , and unfortunately, I cannot do everything.
So please don't take it personally if I decline your project when the style or theme don't fit my work.
When I do "feel" your project we can take an appointment in the shop to discuss a bit more about it and to fix a tattoo date or we can just fix a date by email if everything is clear.
For fixing a date I will ask for a deposit of 50 €.
! Important: The deposit won't be returned in any case.
In case of cancellation, report < 48h before due date or 3 reports all together the deposit will be lost.
Our tattoo date is approaching and you start to get nervous. No need to get nervous: I am always preparing my designs only 2 or 1 day before our tattoo meeting. When I start working on it, I will send you en email. A bit later, a first sketch is following to give you an idea of the composition and the placement of the elements. You can tell me then if there is something you would like to change, if I forgot something or if it's just ready to go.
I accept a small part of modifications on my designs but I also have my limits.
Afterwards I will put the drawing in a clean version taking your remarks in consideration and resend you the project. (linework only.)
Small changes are still possible of course the day of the tattoo.
I'm not always sending the finished version and I don't always finish every detail in the drawing.
I'm doing these things directly on your skin.
For bigger and more complicated tattoos I will already show some kind of simulation by email, before the day, but the construction will be done the day of our tattoo date. I'm doing a lot of freehand for these projects.
Other, more abstract tattoos are created directly in the studio. Depending on the project I can make a small simulation before, and if not… well... we'll work together, freehand, on it the day of your tattoo. I have an abstract book with tons of textures and designs in the studio which we can use.
