Guy

Since I was old enough to manipulate objects, I’ve shared my creative gift with the world. It began with crafting objects from nature, followed by my venture into painting and drawing.

Over the years, my talent has evolved and refined as I garnered experience from the natural world and learned from various artists. This journey culminated in earning a degree in Visual Communication from The Art Institute of Philadelphia. However, the confines of office life proved too limiting for me, and I decided to pursue the art of tattooing.

Since 1995, I have been practicing the craft of tattooing, specializing in various art forms such as photorealism, surrealism, Celtic designs, and bio-mechanical art. I find great joy in collaborating with my clients to create unique, freehand art on their skin.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Yes, you will need an appointment for both consultations and tattooing.

    You can reach out to me through various means, including email, Facebook, Instagram, this website, or a phone call. I’m more than happy to guide you through the entire process from the very beginning.

    Before your scheduled appointment, I typically conduct a free consultation with you. During this session, we discuss the project in detail, covering aspects like images, sketches, placement, size, and other relevant information. It’s crucial that both you and I are in sync to ensure I can craft your unique artwork accurately. Following our discussion, I’ll request a deposit to secure your appointment slot and initiate the design phase.

    On the day of your appointment, any last-minute adjustments that may be necessary to create the perfect design for your masterpiece will be made.

    The purpose of a deposit is to demonstrate a mutual commitment to the project, indicating that both you and I take it seriously. It also serves as a guarantee of your presence on the scheduled appointment day. It’s important to note that any deposits made will be deducted from your total cost on the appointment day.

    While deposits can be transferred to another date, they are non-refundable and non-transferable unless you provide a minimum of 48 hours notice for any changes or cancellations. This policy helps ensure efficient scheduling and a fair arrangement for us both.

    Given the intricate nature of my work, I do not provide price quotes over the phone or through email. I can offer an estimate once I have an understanding of the project. Additionally, for larger pieces, it may be challenging to determine the exact total cost upfront. Larger tattoo designs often evolve over time, deviating from the initial plan, and consequently, the cost estimate may change. Therefore, it’s crucial to maintain open communication with me regarding these details and how alterations or multiple sessions can impact the final cost.

    For simpler tattoos, there is a studio minimum charge. This is because even small or seemingly “simple” tattoos entail the expenses associated with setting up and maintaining a sterile environment to prevent the risk of blood-borne pathogens. The size of the tattoo does not necessarily correlate with a lower price, as small, intricate tattoos can be more complex and time-consuming to execute.

    It’s essential to keep in mind that when you get a tattoo, you are investing in a piece of art that will be with you forever. Good tattoos aren’t cheap, and in most cases, a cheap tattoo isn’t very good.

    Visa and MasterCard, American Express, Cash.

    Yes, but with cover pieces or reworking of an old piece, each situation is unique and will need to be assessed at a consultation to discuss possibilities and options that will work with the existing piece.

    I am sorry but no, not even with a parent’s consent.

    Though it is not illegal in the state of Maryland, we don’t recommend getting a tattoo when you are pregnant. If you have spoken with your healthcare provider and would like to proceed, we are open to discussing the possibility.

    Regardless of the size of your tattoo, I strongly recommend getting a good night’s sleep and having something to eat and drink before your appointment. If your tattoo will require exposing certain areas of your body, please plan ahead and dress accordingly, or you can bring a change of clothing.

    It’s worth noting that ink seepage or splattering is a possibility during the tattooing process, so it’s advisable NOT to wear your favorite outfit to the appointment.

    After removing the initial bandage, gently wash the area with hot, soapy water. Don’t re-apply bandage

    Exercise basic hygiene. Washing the tattoo daily with soap and water with regular showers will be sufficient.

    Wait 2 to 3 days before applying any sort of fragrance free lotion with a minimal amount of lotion required. It’s best to use perfume-free, dye-free, non-petroleum lotion.

    Your tattoo should be completely healed or start exfoliating within 4 to 7 days depending on how saturated your tattoo is.
