Frequently Asked Questions

 

Where are you located?

You can find me at Lucky Rabbit Tattoo Cult, tucked away in the Jewellery Quarter in Birmingham. Find the address on my contact page.


What are your rates?

I charge by piece so it depends. Most of my work usually ranges between £80 - £300, with exceptions on each end of the scale. 


How do I book an appointment?

All of the info is on this page.


When will I hear back from you?

I try my best to reply to all messages within a few days, but sometimes it can take up to a week if I’m busy. Please be patient (I don’t have somebody to help with my correspondence and obviously I have a life outside of tattooing - sometimes it gets difficult to juggle the two!) and don’t send any follow-up messages. I start from the bottom of my emails, so resending pushes you to the top of the list and means you’ll have to wait longer for a response.


Do you do in-person consultations? 

I typically don’t do in-person consultations because scheduling is such a hassle. If you’re interested in a larger piece, looking to fill an awkward space or potentially adding on to an existing piece, I may ask you to come in prior to your appointment so we can figure some things out together. Of course, I’m happy to make exceptions if you feel that an in-person consultation would be best to communicate your ideas, but these must be arranged in advance. 


Do you do scar cover-ups?

Absolutely! Making clients feel good about their bodies is my favourite part of tattooing, and I consider it an honour to be trusted with the vulnerability of dealing with scars. I look forward to turning your scars into something beautiful that you can treasure. The only thing to note about scars is that they need to be at least a couple of years old to be able to work on top of.


Do you tattoo designs more than once?

Unless otherwise stated, all designs are completely unique and will only ever be tattooed once. 


Do you ever tattoo in colour?

Nope - black ink only!


When will I see my design?

A couple of days before your appointment, I will email you a rough sketch of your design. You’re more than welcome to suggest any revisions you would like to see in the piece. After we’ve settled on the composition and any changes you may want, I will work on a fully detailed version. 


How should I prepare for my tattoo appointment?

Stay hydrated, get a good night’s sleep and make sure you eat something before your appointment. You’re welcome to bring a book, music, or games to make you feel comfortable during your session. Plan to take it easy for the rest of the day after your appointment. Avoid coming in hungover/drinking the night before. 


Will I need to bring ID?

Yes, please make sure to bring identification that indicates your date of birth and full name, such as passport or a driving license.


What should I wear to my appointment?

You’ll want to wear something you’ll be comfortable sitting/lying in for a couple of hours. You’ll also need to wear something that exposes the area you want your tattoo placed. For example, wearing loose trousers for a tattoo on your ankle, bringing a pair of shorts to change into for a thigh tattoo, or a top that you can drop down your arm for a shoulder cap. Though it doesn't happen often, there's always a chance of getting ink on your clothes, so darker items are usually best if possible. 


Can I bring my friend/partner/parent?

You’re more than welcome to bring a friendly face along to your appointment! They can keep you company while you’re getting tattooed, although it is very important that everyone in the studio is respectful of the space and everyone working in it. 


What are your policies regards to lateness?

If you’re more than 20 minutes late to your appointment and have not attempted to contact me, you may have to reschedule and provide a second deposit in order to do so. 


What do I do if I need to reschedule?


What ink do you use? Is it vegan?

I use black Dynamic ink, and yes it’s vegan! 


What forms of payment do you accept?

Lucky Rabbit Tattoo Cult is cash only.
