Tattoo FAQ

Where do I tattoo?

I mostly tattoo out of Modern Body Art in Birmingham UK but also the occasional convention and guest spot. Check my Instagram where I will post any upcoming dates.

If you have a studio or convention you’d like me to visit, or even just want a tattoo and you live in a far off land, please don’t hesitate to ask me.

Will you do this tattoo for me?

I mostly concentrate on projects I have available and am eager to work on but I will take on some custom work. If you would like a tattoo from me then you can use the contact form on this website or email info@modernbodyart.co.uk. We never knowingly ignore an email, so if you don’t hear from us, please resend it.
I try and focus on tattoos that are very much within my range such as botanicals, birds, animals and nature. If I don’t feel I can do your tattoo for you, please don’t be offended, I am trying to find a work/life balance, only take on work I am confident I can do well, and concentrate on projects that fulfil my artistic drive.

 

How booked are you?

Usually no more than a month at a time.

I don’t book more than 3 months in advance. For example, on January 1st I would open up March for appointments, then February 1st, I open up April etc etc. This seems to work ok and I usually have enough spaces for people to get in with me.

How much do you charge?

Pieces that can be done in one session I try to give a fixed price. I also do a half day session at £250 or full day session at £400.

How do I book in?

Please email the shop and they will help you out: info@modernbodyart.co.uk or use the request form on my website.

How do I go about getting something designed?

I only draw designs for people once they have booked in with a deposit. The deposit is £20 per hour of the appointment you book (i.e. a 3 hour appointment would be a £60 deposit). Please note, if you want to view a design before your appointment, I don’t send designs out via email, via social media or do anything on FaceTime etc, you do have to come into the shop, usually a week before your appointment. You can cancel or change an appointment but you need to give us at least 72 hours notice or you will lose the deposit.

What can I expect at my appointment?

I try and be as professional as possible for you and give you a nice experience. I do my best to run on time, the design will be ready at the date you are given. I don’t have breaks all the time, I don’t sit with headphones in ignoring you like you are an inconvenience to me, or spend half the day on my phone.
All my needles are single use cartridges, everything is wrapped and protected and I follow the best cross contamination practices to give you a safe experience.
If you are booked for a day session I do take a lunch break – so you can bring some food for yourself or pop and get some. My day rate includes time knocked off for a lunch break.
