Greetings and thank you for visiting my website. You can sample my artwork here, as well as contact me to inquire about tattooing or commissioned paintings. I enjoy creating traditional and realistic styles, unique to every client, hand drawn and crafted with care using the finest of pigments. I typically ask that you make an appointment for your tattoo, but from time to time I can accommodate walk-ins. Most of the work I do is completely custom requiring only your input and ideas on your tattoo concept. It is best to come into the shop and sit down with me and we can discuss the project at hand before your appointment. Some useful resources for ideas include tattoo magazines, books, artist's websites, and Internet search engines. This can be helpful for inspiration and as a starting point, so that I can get a general idea of the style you would like to create. I have at my disposal an expansive collection of reference books and tattoo flash that can also be very useful when searching for ideas. A majority of the finest tattoos I have done were the result of the client giving me the freedom to run with their ideas and come up with a completely original piece of artwork for them.
The cost of the project is relevant to the time it takes to complete and includes four main factors: color vs. black & gray, skin type/ area, previous tattoos/ rework/ cover-up, and size of project. If you are working with a limited budget, please inform me of the maximum amount you can afford for the session and I will do my best to accommodate you. I generally require a $50 deposit for appointments and charge $125 an hour. Estimates can be given at the time of consultation or before starting the tattoo.
Thank you for taking the time to look at my work, and please feel free to contact me with any questions.
Cheers - Rob Lloyd
