❖ BOOKING ❖
PRICING. Half Day sessions (3 hours) are $600 and Full Day sessions (6 hours) are $1,200. Various factors including size, placement, amount of color, and detail within the tattoo will affect the overall price you pay to complete the tattoo.
If given, price estimates are meant to give you a rough idea of how much it will be based on the current pricing structure, but are not always accurate of exactly how much you will pay in total.
If given, a price quote or flat-rate offer expires if not booked within 2 months from the date the quote was given.
If you have an ongoing project with me and do not book a continuing session within 6 months from your last appointment date, the rate you previously had is subject to change with any rate changes shown on my website.
Session rates for travel locations outside of Newport Beach, CA may be different.
DEPOSITS. Deposits are non-refundable and non-transferable to another idea or person. Deposits only apply to the tattoo submitted by you on the inquiry form that I have agreed to do. Changes to your idea cannot be made once we enter this agreement. If you use a booking link to book an appointment without receiving my approval to another idea, that appointment will be cancelled. Your initial deposit will be held for each session; the deposit amount will be credited only to the final session of the tattoo, unless you cancel, reschedule more than once between sessions, or reschedule within 72 hours before you appointment.
$200 deposit for Half Day sessions.
$400 deposit for Full Day sessions.
If your initial session is a Half Day and you would like to continue with a Full Day for your next session, please have the remaining $200 to add to your deposit on file.
Deposits for travel locations outside of Newport Beach, CA may be different.
CONTINUING SESSIONS. These are sessions scheduled by clients who have ongoing projects with me and a deposit rolling over.
You may have up to 2 continuing sessions scheduled at a time. You may schedule just 1 if you would rather space it out.
Please allow a minimum of 2 weeks of healing between each session.
From the time your last session ends, you have 2 weeks to select a date for your next session to roll over your deposit.
One reschedule is accepted between sessions with the same deposit.
CUSTOM IDEAS. Please describe your idea to me with an inquiry form prior to booking your appointment. I will draw a design in my style based on your description. It is helpful if you mention 1-3 elements you would like in the tattoo. I ask for your trust and creative freedom with your idea. When you book with me, you accept that the design will be done with my art interpretation and what I believe will look best as a tattoo, and some elements may need to be modified. Artwork may be used as references but I will not duplicate art or other tattoos. If there are elements you absolutely desire or do not want in your tattoo, I will happily work with those requests so long as they are communicated to me in your inquiry form, prior to utilizing a booking link and leaving a deposit. No changes or alterations will be made once we agree on an idea and a deposit is left.
PRE-DRAWN DESIGNS. These designs are pre-drawn artwork meant to be tattooed as-is; no changes can be made other than a small variation in size to fit or fill an area. Color is pre-selected. By booking a Pre-Drawn with me, you are agreeing to have it only completed by myself. If I send you a booking link for a specified design and you do not book within 48 hours of receiving the booking link, you will need to re-confirm the design's availability prior to booking. This is to avoid double-booking one design. Please refer to my Instagram story highlight “Pre-Drawn” @kikifiligree for available designs.
❖ CANCELLATIONS & RESCHEDULING ❖
LATE POLICY. Please be on time! If you are anticipating you will be late to your appointment, text or call me/leave voicemail right away (phone number in your appointment reminder emails).
If you are running late to your appointment and you do not inform me directly within the first 30 minutes of your appointment time, I will consider it a no call/no show and your appointment will be cancelled.
Our session time begins at the start of when your appointment is scheduled. I allow a 30 minute grace period if you inform me via text or call that you are running late before the start of your appointment time.
RESCHEDULING. You may reschedule your appointment up to 72 hours before your original appointment time.
To reschedule your appointment, you will need to TEXT the phone number in your confirmation email before the 72-hour period (include your name). Please let me know which day(s) of the week you are available for the reschedule (Tuesday, Thursday-Saturday) so I can send you available dates.
You may reschedule once with one deposit between sessions. A second reschedule between sessions will need a new deposit.
CANCELLATIONS. Deposits are non-refundable. In the event of a cancellation, I lose my income for the appointment day, in addition to the time I have invested into drawing/preparing the requested design for your appointment. Instead of being credited to your final tattoo session, your deposit will be used to cover a cancellation fee to compensate a portion of the appointment time. One Full Day cancellation fee is $400, and one Half Day cancellation fee is $200. Under no circumstances will a deposit be refunded to you.
A cancellation can be any one of the following: (1) You do not arrive to your appointment within the first 30 minutes of its scheduled time, with no prior communication (also referred to as a "no call-no show"), (2) You deny the artwork I present to you and/or request design changes that results in the need for me to invest additional time redrawing the artwork, (3) You make more than one request to reschedule since your previous appointment or original booking date, resulting in multiple days of lost anticipated income, or (4) You attempt to change your appointment date within 72 hours prior to the appointment start time.
❖ PREPARING FOR YOUR APPOINTMENT ❖
BEFORE YOUR APPOINTMENT.
❏ Moisturize your skin frequently and stay hydrated.
❏ Eat a meal within 2 hours of the start of your appointment.
Do not use any topical numbing creams or take any blood thinners before your appointment.
Avoid sun exposure and other damage to your skin. I will not tattoo over sunburnt, bruised, or cut skin. If this occurs please reschedule no later than 48 hours before your appointment to avoid cancellation.
BRING TO YOUR APPOINTMENT.
❏ Your government-issued ID. You must be 18 or older for your appointment session. If you arrive and do not have valid identification (ID, driver's license, or passport) showing you are 18+, your appointment will be cancelled.
❏ Cash. If your tattoo is completed in one session or you are scheduling your final session, your deposit will go toward your appointment. If you still have ongoing sessions, your deposit is not applied until that final session. Please have the cash amount for the session you are booking for with you before going to your appointment.
❏ Clothing I can work around. Shorts for a leg tattoo, tank top for an upper arm tattoo, etc.

Guests: You may have 1 person accompany you, but please have them wait in the lobby during your appointment. No children.
❖ PLEASE BE RESPECTFUL ❖
This is a safe space. I will cancel your appointment if you exhibit any behavior that makes other artists, clients, or myself uncomfortable. Racist, sexist, ableist, homophobic, and transphobic speech will not be tolerated.
Any of that or signs of alcoholic intoxication and/or hard drug use will warrant an appointment cancellation.
