What days are you available?
I tattoo Monday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. For the duration of the pandemic I will strictly be tattooing by appointment only. Please do not stop by the tattoo shop for a consultation until further notice.
How do I schedule an appointment?
You must first fill out the tattoo inquiry form on my website. Although I am grateful you want me to do your next tattoo, I am very busy so not all tattoo requests I can or will be able to do. If I am interested in doing your tattoo, then I will respond with a quote and further information on scheduling and paying your deposit.
How far are you booked out?
As of right now I’m booked around a month out. Depending on the day you’re looking to schedule I might have room to squeeze you in, but please be patient while we work out a time.
How much do you charge?
I charge $150 an hour. There is also a $100 deposit, which is non-refundable. The deposit will come off the last session of your tattoo.
What kind of tattoos do you do?
I specialize in Realism, Geometric, Neo-Traditional, Japanese, or a mixture of these.
I DO NOT do Lettering, Family Portraits, Celtic, Polynesian, or small tattoos (less than 2 hours). If you’re getting a large tattoo and want to do a small one in the same session, that’s fine.
Please note that I will not do a copy of anyone else’s artwork or tattoo.
Do you do touch ups?
I consider touch ups to be less than 30 minutes. If it’s more than 30 minutes, there is a charge.
Do you do cover ups?
It’s specific to each project, the more open you are to design, the more likely I’ll be able to do it.
I sent an email, when can I expect a response?
I will try to get back to you as soon as I can. It may take a few days, but please understand I tattoo 8-10 hours a day, and it might take a few days to get back to you. Also, please only send the one email. Sending multiple emails or texts can cause clutter that makes it hard for me to get back to people in a timely manner. I appreciate your patience while we work together.
It’s been a week and I haven’t received a response, what now?
I appreciate you wanting me to be your tattoo artist for your next piece, but unfortunately if it has been over a week without a response, one of three things may have happened. The first being that there may have been a mistyped email or a website error. The second being that the reply may have gone to your spam box instead of your inbox. The third being that the tattoo you want is not something I am interested in doing because it is not something I specialize in. Please understand tattoos are art, and you should find an artist who is passionate in what you are looking for. Please resend your email directly if you feel this has been an error in some way and I did not get your email. Brandon@bqtattoos.com
When can I see my drawing?
I do not pre draw any tattoos before appointment day. All of my tattoos are custom and drawn on while you’re here for your appointment. There may be pieces of your tattoo that are done before hand, but it’s not something that will be fully rendered before appointment day.
What if I come up with more ideas after our consultation?
Getting a new tattoo is a very exciting thing, and I know you are excited too. I know you may think of new things you want to change or add, but I ask you that once we have consulted about your tattoo, that your tattoo is set in stone and that is what I will begin preparing for. If you are not absolutely sure about what you want, I ask that you wait to book your appointment.
