Consultations are a vital part of the tattoo process and are generally required for larger scale pieces, reworking of preceding tattoos and cover ups. We can either book a consultation face to face in the studio or through email – which is particularly handy for those who are travelling a long way!
Emails are preferred as a first point of contact, and from there we can book a studio consultation appointment if required. As always, consultations are free of charge with no obligation to book in with your chosen artist.
We are happy for you to bring/email reference pictures to aid in explaining your ideas to your artist, however our artists will not copy any other tattoos or artwork exactly.
After your consultation, if you would like to go ahead with the tattoo then a deposit must be paid in order to secure your appointment. Deposit amounts are set at an hour of work (if over an hour) or 50% of the amount if under an hour (see our policies page for further information). Please see below for the rates of our resident artists.
Gerry Carnelly – £80 per hour
Mat Bone – £70 per hour
