It’s as Easy as a Phone Call
However, there are ways to prepare for your meeting with your favourite artist from Seven Crowns.
First, know what you want. A successful tattoo consultation hinges on your ability to define your subject matter. You don’t need to provide your artist with a layout, but the subject matter is always up to you. A list of the elements that you want incorporated into your tattoo is important.
As well, the style that you want to see represented is key. If you’ve chosen an artist, chances are that you like what they do and how they work, and that is over half the battle. But if you have certain style elements that you would like to see represented in your tattoo, be prepared with printed copies of examples to present during your tattoo consultation (not necessarily examples of tattoos that represent your subject matter, just tattoo styles that speak to you),
A Consultation Is Free
It generally lasts about 1/2 an hour, so be ready to answer questions about the space that you want to take up as well as the location, but understand that we are willing to answer questions, so don’t feel obligated to move forward unless you are absolutely sure. $100-$200 deposits are required for designs to be drawn, so please be confident in the artist and your decision to move forward before going ahead with any project.
Once you have decided to go ahead with a design, the process depends on the artist’s stated wait time and the noted discussion conducted at the time of the consultation. When the artist has prepared a design, you will receive a phone call/message informing you of the design’s completion. You have 60 days to respond and to set up an art check. Failure to do so will result in forfeiture of the aforementioned deposit. As well, major changes to subject matter, location, size or appointment times will result in your deposit being up for review at the discretion of the artist.
Have fun with this process, and don’t be rushed, You have the rest of your life to wear this piece of art…please don’t be hasty about the tattoo consultation. This may be the most important aspect regarding your love of your tattoo for the rest of your life.
