decline custom design requests**

  • Remember that all tattoos change overtime – in the days/weeks following your appointment as the ink settles into your skin, and also with you as you age. Please keep in mind that my tattoos are done by hand, that everyone’s skin is different, and that healed results vary from person to person.
