The next step really depends on whether you’ve chosen an artist with appointment availability or not.
If your chosen artist IS actively accepting new clients, then we will proceed with scheduling as soon as your contact form is submitted and approved. In most cases, a FREE consultation appointment will be scheduled for you to meet your chosen artist in person. The two of you can discuss your ideas, and they may make design suggestions as well. If you can agree on design, placement, budget, and any other concerns you may have, a deposit will be collected and your initial tattoo appointment will be set at that time.
If we’ve told you that your chosen artist IS NOT taking new clients at the moment, then you will have to decide if you are willing to wait until that artist becomes available. We will likely direct you to sign up for our mailing list and choose the artist(s) you’re interested in. You should definitely do that anyway. In fact, please go sign up for our mailing list now, because you never know what surprises may land in your inbox. We do not SPAM you or share your email address with anyone, we hate that too.
We do maintain waiting lists for our tattooers who cannot book any more new clients. Getting added to a waiting list is generally done in person at the shop, or through email exchange with our front desk personnel. Matching your project up with the RIGHT artist is a huge priority for us, so please be aware that being put on a waiting list may require artist approval and in some cases, a phone consultation or in-person meeting.
