1. Do you do custom tattoo designs?
YES! In fact that is what I ONLY do! I do offer any design on my page for sale and any design that is here is available for changes to be made to it per request. I feel so privileged to create treasured designs that will be permanent; but what I love more than even that is teaming up with the customers and hearing their stories and passions and memories in order to create a CO-created design that they helped to make
2. How do I pay you?
I have an etsy shop for this purpose. It takes major credit cards and bank accounts and pay pal. Even etsy gift cards! I take a down payment before beginning and the end total upon completion and approval of the design.
3. How do I receive the image?
After you have approved everything I have done and after the final purchase of the design you can easily download the image from etsy onto a desktop computer or lap top. You can then email it or print it for your tattoo artist. This design will be a ONE TIME use image and not for replication by the tattoo artist.
4. Do you work for those outside the United States?
I have worked for folks from all around the world and the fact that I make my images available via download makes this very easy.
5. When can you take my order?
I often have a waitlist built and can have anywhere from one to a dozen folks waiting for custom designs. I will sometimes post on my page when I will be taking a group of orders at a time, and other times I may just take one here and another there as I have time. Messaging me on facebook will be the best way to find out my availability.
6. What are you prices?
You can find a lengthy explanation of my prices and procedure under the “About” tab of my facebook page which I require each paying customer to read before purchase. I also encourage those interested or curious to read it over to be sure they are in agreement.

7. How long does it take to get a custom order?
It depends on where your name lies on my wait list (which I can inform you of at any time!) and the complexity of the design and the number of changes you want to make each time I present a draft to you. On AVERAGE it takes me roughly one to two weeks per design, but I have been known to complete designs in as little as one night. And then as much as a month . It really varies highly. BUT! I am always available for communication at any time. If you don’t hear from me in a while it may be due to other customers or family affairs, simply send me a message and I will update you.
8. Do you have a coloring book!?
Maybe someday! I HOPE! Until then you can find individual pages on my etsy page for a small fee.
9. Can I buy a design on that has already been created?
Yes you can, I sell most (if not all) of the designs on my page at a discounted rate. Please inquire about the specific image to get a quote.
10. Who owns the image we create together?
I still own the right to anything we create together. This means that I am at liberty to use, sell and reproduce the image as I see fit. That being said, many (if not most) of the designs I create for folks are deeply personal and specific. I have only a few of my “as is” designs sell and they are generally the more generic designs. I also tell people who are interested in buying as “as is” design that they were custom made for someone else and if applicable I let them know that there may be hidden items they may want removed (initials, names, symbols, etc.). I respect the designs and symbols and meanings deeply, so please bear with me. I am also an artist, and artists have to make a living by selling art. Thank you for understanding.
11. Do you ONLY do feathers?
NO! I love to be challenged and pushed artistically. However, feathers are my most requested design. I love to do them but I totally love to do different designs a lot too. So if you don’t know if a concept you have considered is something I will want or be able to do, then feel free to shoot me a message and we can discuss it. If it doesn’t’ fit my style or comfort zone I will let you know but I am often inspired and excited by things outside my comfort zone!
