Fully Finalized Sessions:

These sessions are catered towards those of us who want to work directly
with their artist to bring their ideas to life & make changes if need be.


perfect for anyone would like to see their design fully
finalized prior to committing to the tattoo phase
or those who want the peace of mind that comes with being
involved in the design process from start to finish.

(Often a solid choice for virgin skin)

-Or- 

For anyone who would have opted for a
freehand session but the design they have
in mind is not suitable for freehand sessions.


 




how do these sessions work?




Once you are officially booked in, Mackenzie will contact you via
email 2-4 weeks prior to your session with a 1st draft based off of the
information you provide in your e-mail application.



You will then provide your feedback & request any changes if needed/desired.


Mackenzie will make edits, then pass the design back to you for further feedback.


You will pass the design back & forth until you feel it is ready.



at your session, Mackenzie will print off a stencil of the finalized design
& you can figure out exact placement & adjust the size if need be.



Once you are happy with the placement & size of your
stencil, you will begin the tattoo process.


 




There's a lot that goes
on behind the scenes



as a result, these sessions have a higher hourly rate than a freehand session
since your artist will likely spend just as much time on your design 
(likely more)
than they will on the actual tattoo phase.


particularly due to the freedom we wish clients to feel they have to
make requests as needed, throughout the designing & editing process.


this rate means you are able to

request as many edits as needed!
( and ensures everyone's time is cared & compensated for )


---



The More you Know...


While an artist's rate may appear to be one thing,
it can work out to be 
much less once you account for just;

booking & client communication

design time

editing time (can be anywhere from 1 edit to 10+ at times)

set-up/tear down & stencil laying

actual tattoo time.
