Frequently asked questions


To make an appointment you have to send an email either through the appointments page and form or directly to:

In your email please include: Your idea, the size and placement, a picture of the spot where you want the tattoo to be and also some possible reference images for inspiration.

The better I understand your email, idea and details, the less we have to email back and forth, meaning you will have your appointment sooner rather than later. So it is important to send an email as complete as possible. Short and comprehensive is the way to go.

No. I have my books open for limited time so I don't book ahead too far for it to be inconvenient. I will announce when my books are open through my newsletter and social media. If you email for an appointment while my bookings are closed, I will not be able to book you in. If you want to be notified when I have available spots in the meantime, then subscribe to my newsletter.

My bookings open every 3 months. On the 1st of February, 1st of May, 1st of August, 1st of November. 

I try to only book ahead 3 months at a time. I mostly open my books for that period about 1 month before, so waiting time will roughly be between 1 and 4 months.

I do not have a waiting list, so if you want an appointment you have to email me when my books are open. However if you want to be kept up to date about possible cancelations and other available spots in the meantime you can subscribe to my newsletter to stay up to date!

I work in my own private studio in Zaandam: Studio117. Sometimes you can find me doing guestspots, for more info on that check out the guestspot page.

Once you have an appointment you will receive the address from me. 


Yes. A deposit is required to book in a tattoo. Deposits can be done through the automated email you get after discussion your idea through our email conversation.

The deposit is non-refundable and deducted from total price of the last payment.

Good tattoos aren't cheap, cheap tattoos aren't good. 

I work with fixed prices. Prices are based on the amount of time, preparation, research, details and skill.

I only discuss prices through email and final prices may vary on the day of tattooing regarding to the amount of work that has to be done.

In the studio you can pay by Betaalverzoek (Bank transfer/Tikkie) or Cash.

Design questions

I will always try to send you a sketch of the design before the day of tattooing through email. This mostly means the evening before. I do this so you can see what you're getting and if I need to adjust the design I can do this before the appointment so I can be better prepared.

Yes. If you are unsure about details in the design or want to make some changes to the sketch I will always take your feedback into account, making sure you get what you want. I will  be honest and explain why certain things you might like may not work as well in a tattoo design.

Sometimes. I do not copy artwork from anybody else. I will sometimes make exceptions if it's something like a drawing your kid made for you etc.
