Frequently Asked Questions

Mary Jane Tattoos
  • Do I need an appointment, or can I walk in?
    I always recommend having an appointment to guarantee your time with me. This allows me to have time to prepare a custom design and experience for you. However, if you are wanting something small that would take under an hour, I can typically fit you in before or after my other appointments for the day.
  • Can I get a quote over the phone or email?
    Quotes can be tough without knowing exactly in detail what we are tattooing. For smaller pieces, I do have a minimum of $100. Everything is priced hourly, and It’s $200/hr. Anything that needs to be drawn up will be given a rough estimate, but that can vary during the process. I do keep open communication and always appreciate the patience, as this is a very important and very permanent procedure. I do work efficiently and only take breaks if you need one.
  • Do I need to leave a deposit?
    A $50 nonrefundable deposit is required when setting up your appointment. It always goes towards your tattoo when you come in for your appointment. If you don’t show up or cancel less than 24 hours before our appointment, you may lose your deposit. I understand things will pop up, emergencies will happen or your job sucks and won’t let you have the day. I always allow for you to reschedule 1 time, no problem. If you cancel or reschedule more than once, you will need to leave another deposit to book.
  • Will I get to see the drawing before our appointment?
    I always send out my sketch the evening before our appointment. This way you can proof it without me hovering over you. Gives you time to look it over. Once I send it, please let me know whatever changes you may want to make. This is where I trust you to be completely honest. This isn’t a bad haircut, this is permanent and I just want to make sure you are 100% happy with the entire experience of us working together.
  • How long is the healing process?
    I always try and use a second skin bandage to heal our work, unless you are allergic to adhesives, then I will talk you through a more traditional fashion of healing your tattoo. For more detail on aftercare, see the Healing Information page.
  • Can I use numbing cream?
    During the process, I use products that can ease the experience. These products contain various amounts of lidocaine. If you choose to use numbing cream prior to your appointment, be aware of how much lidocaine is in it because too much can alter the texture of your skin and making it difficult to tattoo.
