SARAH S. SPINKS

So you wanna get a tattoo?

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

How do I book an appointment?

START HERE:

 

Schedule a time to talk about your design, BOOK A CONSULTATION (ALL consultations are done during this time thru Zoom - I will send you a link).

 

Here we can go over your ideas, do some light sketching together, take pictures of the area you want to get tattooed, find reference and I can answer any questions about the process. Consultations are required for any client desiring cover-up work. Typically, consultations are around 15 min.

 

READY  TO BOOK AN APPOINTMENT? HAVE WE COMMUNICATED?

 

Ready to get tattooed? This means we have already been texting, emailing, DMing or talked over the phone. If you are ready to schedule an appointment because I have let you know to go ahead CLICK HERE.

If we need to have a Zoom appointment first because we are drawing up new artwork and not working on an ongoing project, please BOOK A CONSULTATION first. 

 

Why is your schedule so limited right now? 

Right now, because of Covid and personal family reasons I am only taking one appointment per day, Monday-Thursday. This is to keep me and you safe at this time and it’s all the work I feel like I can mentally handle. 

I really appreciate you understanding this and not asking me to come in on the weekends or evenings. Schedule wise, it is much easier and safer for me at this time to tattoo out of the shop before anyone else gets there and there will only be me, the client and counter staff.

Do you do cover ups? 

Yes! But it's best to book a consultation so we can figure out together what will work to make this reality. Please note that it is best for you to be flexible when it comes to deciding what will work best to achieve a successful cover-up. Because all consultations are done thru Zoom, figuring out certain cover ups may present a challenge. We may need to meet briefly in person. If this is the case, I will let you know during Zoom consultation and we can figure out a time to make this possible.

Deposit for cover-up work

A cash deposit of $100 is required to begin the process of drawing your cover up tattoo

Please take a look at my tattoo portfolio to get an idea of the type of work I have done. I enjoy being versatile, but if I feel it is not in my scope and there is someone better for the job, don’t take it personal! I want you to have a fantastic tattoo!

$100 deposit WILL come off of the total price of the tattoo (at the time of the last appointment if multiple session project). 

What are your rates?

Sarah charges $200/hr. Pricing is based on size, placement, etc. 

 

What is your cancellation policy? 

Please just let me know if you are not going to be able to make it to your appointment. I know that everything is very ‘up in the air’ and changing constantly due to Covid. Know that it is possible I may need to cancel our appointment due to County Health Dept regulations or personal reasons. Your patience and understanding is appreciated.

PLEASE READ AND KNOW THE FOLLOWING IS NON-NEGOTIABLE

 

• Please let me know if you must cancel your appointment or reschedule without at least 24 hours notice. 

• I cannot tattoo you without government-issued identification. 

• If you arrive intoxicated. GTFO

  • Due to COVID19, there are extra precautions we must take to ensure the safety of our clients

Do the right thing. Please cancel/reschedule your appointment if you have a temperature above 100.4 or any symptoms.

 

  • MASKS ARE REQUIRED. Please do not show up without a mask. There is no discussion. You must wear your mask the entire time you are at your appointment. 

 

  • NO GUESTS ALLOWED. If you have an appointment you must come alone. Upon arrival I will be taking your temperature and screen you for symptoms before entering the shop.

  • No food or drink in the shop. Please eat before your appointment.

 

  • Please text from your parked car when you arrive for your appointment (760) 207-5557. I will let you know when to it is time to come inside.

  • Please wait to book a tattoo with me if you are attending gatherings, don't think you need to wear a mask regularly, you think Covid is a hoax, or you pretty much live a reckless life. My husband has FUCKING CANCER and is super immunocompromised. Know that I take all of these precautions extremely seriously and want to keep the experience as safe for you as I do for him.

 

YOU MUST HAVE YOUR ID WITH YOU FOR EVERY APPOINTMENT.

Safety is the number one priority of American Tattoo and myself. If you have any questions or concerns please call the shop.
