MY 2018 TRAVEL SCHEDULE:

STAR OF TEXAS TATTOO REVIVAL AUSTIN, TEXAS - JAN 26-28 2018

MY BOOKS WILL BE OPEN FEBRUARY 1ST 2018:
Starting February 1st I will be opening my books and adding new clients to the waiting list. Starting that day you can send me an email with your idea and we’ll go from there. Please allow 1-2 WEEKS for a response, it takes a little while to go through all the emails. There is a questionnaire on my contact page that makes this process a little easier.
IF YOU ARE CURRENTLY ON THE LIST AND HAVE BEEN PATIENTLY WAITING FOR AN EXTENDED TIME, please email me and let me know. As the year has gone on I have been trying my best to get everyone in, however sometimes people accidentally get skipped over.
IF YOU ALREADY HAVE AN APPOINTMENT , you are good to go. You still have your appointment spot.


FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

HOW DO I GET ON THE LIST?:
Please email me with your tattoo idea and I will let you know if it is something I can do for you. I have a tattoo appointment questionnaire on my contact page that makes this process a little easier. If I am able to tattoo you, I will let you know the procedure to get on the waiting list. If your tattoo is something that I can’t or won’t do, I am sorry.

HOW LONG UNTIL I GET MY TATTOO?:
This is a tough question to answer. Some people get tattooed a month after being added to the list, some people end up waiting over a year. Sometimes longer. I try my hardest to get everyone tattooed as soon as I can, but with hundreds of people on the list it can take some time. Patience is essential. An extended wait to get your appointment does not correlate with a lack of interest in me doing your tattoo. If you were added to the list it means I am excited to do your tattoo.

ONCE I’M ON THE LIST, WHAT HAPPENS NEXT?:
Once your information is on the list, you are on the list. You’re all good. I don’t remove names or information unless someone specifically asks to be removed from the list. Every couple months I look at my schedule and I count off the amount of open spots. Then I look at the waiting list and contact a specific amount of clients to coincide with the amount of open spots. So basically your best bet is to be patient. I do not mind being contacted every once in awhile to check on the status of your potential appointment, however constantly emailing me will not expedite your appointment date.

I specialize in tattooing birds, dog portraits, animals (especially big cats), traditional landscapes, illustrated color portraits of celebrities, black and grey portraits from vintage photos, and vintage inanimate objects including automobiles and airplanes. I also tattoo a multitude of other subjects so if your idea isn't listed you can still send me an email to see if it's something I'm capable of doing.

Feel free to send me a message and I will get back to you as soon as possible. My schedule is very busy, but I take pride in the fact that I get back to my clients as quickly as I can. I appreciate you taking the time to look through my work, and I'm grateful to be considered to be your tattoo artist.
Thanks,
Dave
