PLEASE read this section in it's entirety prior to sending a message! Thank You!
When sending a contact request, please specify which artist you are wanting your piece done by. If you have no preference, please indicate so within the message.
To simplify my schedule and to make booking more efficient, I will only be offering Half Day and Full Day appointments- Half day appointments (10-2 or 2-6) will be charged a 2 hour minimum, while full day (10-6) will be a 4 hour minimum.
*Due to the high volume of submissions, I apologize but CANNOT possibly take on every project that gets proposed. I will select the ones that are more geared towards progressing my style and advancing my abilities. If you are open to another one of the artists at the studio working on you in the event that I am unable to take on your project- please let me know in the message so that I can direct the email to them!*
PLEASE BE PATIENT AND DO NOT SEND ANOTHER CONTACT REQUEST. By sending second and third requests, it does nothing but congest my inbox and will NOT expedite a response.
If I decide to take on your project, depending on size (single or multiple sessions) it is generally a ~3 month period from the time of initial submission to the time when you will be contacted by me to start discussing the piece! This is in part due to the fact that I have been taking on more large scale projects which consume a bit more of my schedule.
I have become more interested in working in the neotraditional stylings (lady faces, animals, conceptual, freehand, etc) and larger scale pieces as of late. For this reason, they will receive priority booking. I will also be posting pieces that I have been wanting to do, and those of you interested in those pieces will get first dibs on dates, so keep an eye out!
Due to my busy schedule, I will very rarely have a drawing for you to see prior to the appointment. I allow time before getting started to make adjustments to the piece, if necessary. All I ask is that you trust me and have a little faith in my work.
I will NO longer be doing any tribal, (Polynesian, Celtic or otherwise) extensive script, (verses, passages, poems, etc.) watercolor, or galaxy pieces. Cover ups will be taken on a piece by piece basis but are generally not accepted unless there have been laser treatments to lighten. I will not be taking on reworks of existing tattoos. . Thank you for your understanding!

BOOKING FOR 2018
Now booking the remainder of 2018. Though I am more than happy to take on most any project presented to me, I am more drawn to watercolor/painterly styled tattoos. I am always looking to tattoo one of my countless doodles of obscenely cute animals in various predicaments- if that strikes a chord with you, send me an email and we can discuss some of my available drawings!
Please feel free to contact me for more information and to set up your next tattoo!
Rick is currently booking thru the remainder of the year and into 2019.
If you have any questions regarding setting up an initial consult, the tattoo process, or to commission a fine art piece, do not hesitate to send a message to get details. I review all messages and will contact you back in no time at all.
When sending a message in regards to getting a tattoo, please be thorough. Include what you were wanting to get, size, location on your person, and the time frame you were wanting to get the piece done.
