Hi, I'm Mackenzie
ILLUSTRATIVE FINE LINE REALISM
I am a gentle handed tattooer who loves tattooing all types of subjects with a style that is very illustrative, but uses high contrast.
I enjoy pushing myself to create realistic scenes as well as bold designs that will last on the skin and look good as they stand the test of time.
I also enjoy fine line designs which is where I use small needles and very high detail.
I am opening my books for
Spring and Summer 2022
Stay tuned for emails involving scheduling. If you are on my waitlist and I don't reach out in March,
I will reach out soon! I appreciate your patience!
I am a gentle handed tattooer who loves tattooing all types of subjects. With a style that is very illustrative, but uses high contrast, I enjoy pushing myself to create realistic scenes as well as bold designs that will last on the skin and look good as they stand the test of time. I also enjoy fine line designs which is where I use small needles and very high detail. This takes a great deal of time so that is why I charge an hourly rate of $150. I am always willing to work with clients if you have a budget or have monetary restrictions that prohibit you from getting the work you want. I am flexible so just let me know and we can see what we can work out!
Booking Process and My Schedule-
My booking process is based off a wait-list and I typically have one. So I don't open my books often. If you want work from me, just email me and I'll get you on the list and give you the best estimate possible for when I can realistically get you in on the books. I typically work Thursdays, Friday's, Saturday's.
We are unfortunately on the second level of an old building and the stairs are very steep. If you need assistance or if this prohibits you from getting a tattoo, please let me know and I will do my best to find a solution.
After the initial email is sent, I will reach out to you ASAP. I typically answer emails within a few days. I will then book you for a consultation which is free, or put you in a wait list depending on my availability since I only book a few months out at a time. When the time comes to pick a date and time for your consult, I will expect you to come with an idea ready or a good base of what you want. If you are very unsure, at least bring reference images or images of inspiration and we can go from there.
At the end of the consult, we will book the date of the tattoo where I will require a non-refundable deposit of at least $50 to $100 ($50 for small, less than an hour tattoos that will equal my minimum tattoo price of $100; and $100 for tattoos that are larger and will take longer than an hour). If the tattoo will take over a half of the day (~4 hours) I require a $200 deposit. That money will go towards the total of the tattoo session if it is a one day session, or it will carry over as future deposits for multi-day sessions.
If you cancel last minute (less than 48 hours before the appointment) or you do not show up, your deposit it forfeited and you will need to put another one down to book another appointment. I am extremely understanding so just keep me informed and I will work with you!
After the deposit is received and the appointment is booked, I will reach out to you a week to a few days before the appointment and create a rough draft of your stencil and keep you posted throughout the design process so we can collaborate as much as possible. The day of the tattoo, we will have plenty of time to tweak the design or make it fit your body to your satisfaction. I will never force you to get the tattoo until you're completely comfortable. During the tattoo, please come ready for the tattoo which includes payment (I accept cash or card which includes a fee to use the square reader). Also, eat beforehand and be well rested. Research what you will need for aftercare. We provide aftercare for sale or for free if your tattoo totals over $400. If you have any other questions I am an email away! I look forward to working with you!
