Any changes that need to be made to the drawing will be done at the beginning of your appointment time. When you do see the drawing it will be an outline only to suit the stencil. No shading or coloring should be expected.

The artist retains all right to the design or tattoo, including the right to photograph the completed design or tattoo and the right to share the completed tattoo in portfolios both online an in hard copy photos.
Touch ups are not always included in the price of the tattoo and may be an extra expense, especially if the artist determines your tattoo was not properly cared for. If the artist offers a free touch up. It will be one session and will need to be booked within six months of your original appointment.
If you need to reschedule it needs to be done via email, phone or in person at the shop.
