There are a couple ways in which I book projects: Design Set pieces and Custom Projects. Design set pieces are pre drawn tattoos that are available to book over an extended amount of time or when I need to fill a cancellation or gap in my schedule. These are typically previewed through instagram but booked through email and are booked first come, first serve. Custom projects are projects in which you, the client, have an idea that you want me to tattoo. These are heavily screened to ensure I can fully creatively commit to the project and are not first come, first serve.
Pieces from my Design Set are predawn designs that usually include subject matter I want to tattoo but haven’t had the chance to, or composition heavy pieces that are placement specific. They are priced at a flat rate, fully detailed in my style and for the most part, fixed at a certain size. Pieces from my Design Set are only tattooed once.
All designs are posted via Instagram for you to preview before booking opens. Design Sets are typically released seasonally on Instagram as a drop and booked via email. This is the best time to inquire about a design as they tend to fully book and I book pieces first come first serve. Whenever I have gaps in my schedule or last minute openings I advertise through Instagram available pieces to be booked to fill the spot.
When I advertise saying “Books Closed” it means that I am booking too far in advance for my preferred scheduling. I always have my current booking status posted on my instagram profile. When “Books Open” is advertised it means I am accepting new project submissions. This is usually for a short amount of time to help regulate the amount of projects I receive.
My books typically open during the change of season (spring, summer, fall, winter) and I advertise as much as I can through instagram of upcoming book openings.
When I open my schedule to accept new projects I post a third party form to fill out. This form will prompt all the necessary information that I need in order to fully understand your tattoo idea. If I am in between bookings and you are unsure if your project falls within my interest range you can always reach out via email and I will get back to you!
All custom tattoo projects are screened to ensure that I can fully creatively invest in your tattoo design. I won’t tattoo anything that does not interest me or fall within my current tattoo style. If your project is accepted I always arrange for an in person consultation to ensure we are on the same page about the composition, placement, size and pricing. We then book the actual tattoo appointment at the end of our consultation. Exceptions can be made for the in person consultation if you are out of town or travelling - just be sure to include that in your booking form.
I only tattoo pieces in my own style and that are drawn by me. All pieces that I tattoo are drawn and designed by me, from scratch, and only tattooed once unless otherwise stated. I do not tattoo pieces that are smaller than 5” in size, other artists’ drawings, colour work, portraits, pinterest-trending designs, minimalist style tattoos, script or geometric elements. I always love working with anything nature related, like specific botanicals or animals. This is what I am happiest doing and which projects I am most proud of.
Absolutely, I love creative freedom. That being said, I find it hard to design something that I feel confident in if you give me no guidelines. Something along the lines of, ‘I love Saskatchewan wildflowers but have no preference on composition or which are included in the piece’ is enough for me to confidently create a piece I think you will like!
I don’t typically accept cover up projects as my style isn’t dark enough to effectively cover a lot of tattoos. I use a lot of untouched skin as highlight areas and negative space within a composition. There are exceptions - if your piece is extremely light and small or if you’ve had previous laser removal sessions to lighten the tattoo. Feel free to send a photo of your tattoo via email and I am happy to let you know what I think I can work with.
I do not touch or add onto any piece done by another artist. If you have a piece that you would like to add onto, I am happy to create a composition that compliments your existing piece without adding onto it directly. If you need a touch up for an existing piece the general rule is to ask the artist that tattooed you.
All information regarding my pricing and deposits are sent through a prompt in email if your project is accepted. I always give an accurate price quote or work within your budget to ensure there are no surprises!
No. Due to the nature that I book projects (first come first serve for Design Sets and heavily screening custom projects) this would further complicate my booking processes. If your loved one has an existing appointment with me and you would like to cover a portion of their tattoo cost we can figure that out - email me!
I am located in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan at Gemini Studios which is a private, appointment only tattoo studio. All upcoming guest spots are advertised via my instagram when I am accepting project proposals.
I book mural work through email initially and then an in person consultation. We always meet at the space to ensure we are on the same page about design, size, colours, etc. I have a preferred mural style of fine line work mixed with block colourways. Anything nature related is my preferred subject matter.
All mural work is based on square foot pricing. I do not have a minimum or maximum wall size that I work with. Things like layered solid colour work or an extremely detailed composition can impact the square footage pricing, therefore I always give a rough quote via email before meeting and we further discuss pricing at our consultation to ensure it is within your budget.
Some of my favourite murals to date are at Sparrow Coffee on 2nd Ave and Fable Ice Cream on Ave H south.
