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)


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 due to the freedom we allow for clients to make requests during the editing process.

this rate means you are able to

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

While an artist's custom project
rate may appear to be one thing,
once you account for;
client communication.
design/editing time,
set-up/tear down & stencil laying...
an artists hourly rate works out to be less than half of
what it appears to be.
