You must be 18+ to be tattooed in the state of Wisconsin.

How much are tattoos?
I charge $150/hour. My minimum is $100

How long do I have to wait for an appointment?
I am usually booked out 2-3 months out.
I don’t book appointments more than 4 months out.

Do I need a consultation appointment?
I will let you know if we need a consultation to meet in person.
I require a consult for large scale projects, cover ups, or ideas that can’t be explained easily.

Will you tattoo anything?
i don’t tattoo every type of design and style.
i do not do single needle or “micro” tattoos. there are certain projects I will not take on, so please don’t take it personally.

Can you tattoo something I found online?
I do not tattoo other people’s designs, whether it is a drawing or an existing tattoo.

Do I have to leave a deposit?
yes. a deposit secures your spot in my calendar and lets me know you will show. Depending on the size of the tattoo, deposits are $50 or $100.

deposits are non-refundable and non transferable and will be applied to the total of your tattoo cost. rescheduled appointments require a new deposit. please make sure the appointments you agree to you can make.
after I confirm your appointment time, you will receive an emailed invoice.
please pay the deposit within 48 hours, otherwise the time slot may be given to another client.

What if I change my mind about the design?
if your idea changes, that’s okay, as long as I have enough notice to redraw for the appointment we’ve booked. I appreciate at least a week notice, more if possible. If your idea changes the day of your appoinment, we will have to reschedule and you will need to leave a new deposit for the new appointment, as I will not be able to tattoo that day.

When will I see my tattoo design?
the design will be ready the day of your appointment. I do not email drawings. minor changes can be made the day of your appointment.
If you’re booking an appointment with me, you should have a pretty good idea of my style and what things will look like. for more involved projects I will take enough information during the consult so there will be no surprises

What types of payment do you accept?
cash or charge

Can I bring my friend or child to my appointment?
Akara does not allow minors at the shop. You may bring a friend, but please refrain from bringing large groups of people, the shop is small and there is not enough room.
