Booking Request Form

As with any relationship, communication is vital when getting a tattoo. Prior to receiving a quote from your tattoo artist, it is important to let them know how much control you desire to have during the design process. It is vital that you include notes of any "must have" elements you want incorporated. This form is made to help reduce the back forth of emailing and to get the artist up to speed quickly with your project. Please note that artists at Portal tattoo are hungry to create art within their realm and are much more likely to take on projects that give some liberty with a loose idea as a foundation.

Deposit Policy

  • At the end of your consultation a deposit will be taken to secure your appointment (generally one hour of the artist's rate, or more at the artist's discretion for large-scale designs).For your reference, We have a copy available here of our policies on cancelations and how the design process works. Thank you for your cooperation in this as short notice changes to our schedule cause us to lose tattooing and drawing time. We truly appreciate your understanding.

If the finished design is not to my liking, minor changes will be made at the artist's discretion. However, I understand that substantial changes to the design or the request of an entirely new drawing or draft will require a new deposit, and the original deposit will be forfeited as payment for the artist's drawing time.
