Frequently Asked Questions

To get a better understanding of the process, please read each section carefully.

  • How do I submit a Tattoo Request Form?
    To submit a Tattoo Request Form, please click on the “Tattoo Request Form” tab on the Homepage & complete the full questionnaire. The more descriptive you are on the form, the less follow-up questions my Booking Manager will have for you when reviewing your request, so please try to be as detailed as possible. Note: Submitting a Tattoo Request Form does not ensure your inquiry will be accepted. The artist will review your request & accept or decline your inquiry based on your ideas.
  • Why do I need to leave a deposit?
    Leaving a deposit secures your appointment time & date with me. All deposits are non-refundable.
  • Does my deposit go towards the cost of my tattoo?
    Yes. Your deposit counts towards the cost of your tattoo.
  • Process for consecutive and/or multiple reschedules:
    • Clients who are in the process of finishing a tattoo: If you have already secured a date & time for your appointment & need to reschedule, we will reschedule your first appointment free of charge. If you need to reschedule again after that, you will need to leave another $100 non-refundable deposit each reschedule following. • Potential clients who have not yet started a tattoo: If you have already secured a date & time for your appointment & need to reschedule, we will reschedule your first initial appointment free of charge. If you need to reschedule again after the first reschedule, we will cancel your request all together, your original deposit will be lost, & you will not be able to book future appointments with the artist.
  • Can I contact you on Instagram or Facebook for a tattoo?
    No. I do not respond to DM’s or personal messages. You need to submit your interest via the “Tattoo Request Form” tab & my Booking Manager will handle your inquiry.
  • Can I see the sketch/design of my tattoo prior to my appointment?
    No. The reason for this is because people often change their minds on what they want, which is why I would like you to complete the questionnaire. Once I know exactly what you want, depending on the size of the tattoo, can take anywhere from 2-3 hours for me to design/sketch. For bigger tattoos, that time will increase.
  • Do you do color tattoos?
    No. I do not do color tattoos because I prefer & specialize in Black & Grey.
  • Will I get a confirmation email of my appointment date/time?
    Yes. Once you leave a deposit & have agreed on a date/time, you will receive a confirmation email with a calendar invite that will have all your appointment details & you will receive (2) email reminders - 24 & 48 hours prior to your appointment. You will also receive a text messasge from my Booking Manager the week prior to your appointment to re-confirm. If you do not confirm through the text message after multiple attempts, my Booking Manager will reach out to you via the email you provided. If that is unsuccessful as well, your appointment will be cancelled & you will need to submit another Tattoo Request Form & leave another $100 non-refundable deposit if you would like to book another day in the future.
  • How can I cancel an appointment?
    You can cancel your appointment by opening the email confirmation you received. Once you open that specific email, you will scroll to the bottom & click the, “cancel appointment” tab. Details for rescheduling will be sent when you confirm your cancellation. Please note that the deposit you left for your appointment is non-refundable. If you'd like to make another appointment after you cancel, you will need to leave another deposit. If you are a no call/no show, I will no longer schedule future appointments with you due to lack of communication.
  • What are some reasons my tattoo will not be approved?
    Some reasons your tattoo might not be approved is: • Why: The tattoo you're wanting is too small. • Reason: I only do large scale tattoos. • Why: The tattoo you're wanting is not my style. • Reason: I specialize in custom tattoos, so if you're wanting a tattoo that is exactly like another, I will not approve. Giving me creative freedom in a tattoo is what I am most interested in. If you're unsure of what my style is & what I specialize in, please visit my IG @jonstattoos to get a better understanding. • Why: I am not interested in the idea you're envisioning. • Reason: It is not that the idea you're envisioning is a bad idea, I just prefer to stick to my style & approve tattoos that will benefit me creatively. If your idea doesn't seem like it would benefit me creatively, I will respectfully not approve. • Why: The tattoo you're wanting is a color tattoo or you want color in it. • Reason: I only do black & grey tattoos. I do not do color tattoos. • Why: The tattoo you're wanting is a cover-up. • Reason: I do not do cover-ups.
  • What is the Tattoo Request Form process?
    The Tattoo Request Form process goes as follows: Once you have completed the “Tattoo Request Form” questionnaire, my Booking Manager will reach out to you with any additional questions needed to help better understand the piece you’re envisioning. Once you have spoken to my Booking Manager & have answered all questions needed, my Booking Manager will then provide you with the soonest date available. After you have agreed on a date, you will then need to leave a $100 non-refundable deposit to secure that specific date. If the deposit is not provided within 48 hours of the agreed upon date, you will lose that spot & will need to select another date that works best. Once the deposit is sent, you will receive a confirmation email with all your appointment details. Lastly, on the day of your appointment, you will meet with me at 10:00am & have your consultation so I can start creating your piece. After I have created your piece, I will then start the tattooing process.
  • Tattoo Aftercare Instructions
    Do not remove the plastic wrap until the following day. Before removing the plastic wrap, wash your hands thoroughly. Once your hands are clean, remove the plastic wrap. After removing the plastic wrap, gently wash your tattoo with warm water & any unscented liquid soap. I recommend using Dial Soap Gold Antibacterial. Pat dry with a clean towel & apply a very light layer of Aquaphor Healing Ointment Spray or Aquaphor Healing Ointment, your preference. You will repeat this process 2-3 times a day for 2 days. After 2 days, you do not need to use Aquaphor any longer. You can switch to using any unscented lotion instead. I recommend using Eucerin Original Healing Cream. For the next 3 weeks, apply a very light layer of unscented lotion as needed. As your tattoo heals, you will notice tightness, soreness, peeling, itching, & flaking - all are normal. Tattoos generally take 4 weeks to fully heal, so in the meantime, in order to ensure you heal properly, please follow these helpful tips below. • Remember to only touch your tattoo after you have thoroughly washed your hands • While in the shower, please use recommended Dial Soap Gold Antibacterial​ or any unscented liquid soap directly on your tattoo • Do not pick or scratch your tattoo • Do not shave over your tattoo until it is fully healed • Avoid direct sunlight for the first few days • Avoid sunscreen (directly on your tattoo) until your tattoo is fully healed • Avoid bodies of water such as: swimming pools, hot tubs, baths, lakes, ponds, & oceans (showers are okay) Failure to take care of your tattoo properly can lead to serious infection that can cause bodily harm, so please treat your tattoo with care as it heals. Once your tattoo fully heals, you can proceed to your normal routines. If you have any questions and/or concerns about the healing process, please feel free to reach out.
