Wait List

Please note that more detailed information is available on the contact page in the menu bar of this website. This page is for quick reference purposes.

If you have already been tattooed by me with large work you do not need to wait again and usually only have to wait for the next available slot to get a consult. 

All Lettering/Script tattoos :  All lettering pieces can be done pre-arranged with a few weeks to a months notice, these include names on the arms, forearms, chest and back rockers etc..,.  a $200 cash deposit will be necessary.

The wait for lettering is between 1-6 weeks depending on availability.


One Session Japanese Tattoos : A one session piece is a tattoo that takes up to 3.5 hours to complete from start to finish – a one-off tattoo. This can be some flowers, a mask, some waves and blossoms.. you get the idea… smaller stand alone stuff that fits nicely on the body somewhere. This does NOT involve the starting of sleeves etc.

The wait for this size tattoo is roughly 1-4 months depending on availability.


Large Japanese Tattoo Work : This category is for any Japanese style tattooing over 3.5 hours. 1/2 Sleeves,  3/4 Sleeves, Full sleeves, chest, ribs, legs etc. Large coverage tattoo work charged by the hour over multiple sessions.

The wait time for this type of tattoo work is between 10-12 months depending on the progress of my ongoing work. I take on new projects as current projects are nearing completion, so its hard to say exactly how long the wait is but its around this time currently.  

Wait times for all sleeves, legs, ribs etc… 10-12 months


I love creating Bodysuits starting with a full size Traditional Japanese Backpiece with background, and so I strive to get these in sooner, so expect a around a short 5-6 month wait to get in to see me if you are truly committed to a proper traditional backpiece,  I always prioritise these projects and do my best to get them in as soon as I can.  I also do a mini-consult beforehand to meet face to face and work out design ideas etc. So please contact me if you are serious and we will arrange a meeting for my next available spot.

The wait time to start a full traditional Japanese backpiece is around 5-6 months.

Full Traditional Japanese Bodysuit – Next available consult to discuss ideas and commitment and we proceed from there. Serious inquiries only please.
