I am a custom tattoo artist, which means everything I tattoo is custom-drawn based on your ideas, and I don’t copy other artist’s designs. It’s really important to have a clear idea of what you want me to create for you and provide as much info as possible to avoid any confusion or time-wasting. To make a tattoo inquiry, you can send me an email at : HELLO@RUBY.BLACK
In your tattoo inquiry email please include:
– Reference images (No more than 5 please)
– Rough size in centimeters
– Placement on your body
– Budget if applicable
– General availability or preferred dates (eg. you work full time so require a weekend appointment)
Please note I work at the shop MONDAY/TUESDAY/FRIDAY/SATURDAY only, 11am-7pm.
If you book me for a full days work I charge $1100 inclusive – for everything else please ask me and I will quote you a rough price range per piece, which is dependent on complexity/detail/size/placement/time taken etc.
To make a booking a deposit is required – usually between $50 to $150 – and is deductible from the final price of the tattoo on the day. Deposits are non-refundable.
If you need to reschedule your appointment, you must give me at least 48hrs notice or your deposit is forfeit and you’ll have to pay another one. Same goes if you don’t turn up for your appointment. As long as you are within the 48hrs, I am totally happy to reschedule you with your deposit intact. If you are running more than 10 mins late to your appointment or can no longer attend please email me ASAP and let me know as a professional courtesy.
All tattoos include free lifetime touch ups if necessary after your initial appointment. If you think you need a touch up, please send me a photo of the area and I will find a time for you.
I work out of SEVEN SAINTS TATTOO in Hawthorn, Melbourne. If taking public transport you can get the 16 tram, or a train on the Alamein, Belgrave, or Lilydale lines to Glenferrie train station and it is a short walk.
Myself and Seven Saints strive for an INCLUSIVE space. If you want to get tattooed, you are welcome in our shop – that’s it. We are also wheelchair accessible. If you would like to request special accommodations please just ask and we will do our best.
Please note that it is Victorian LAW that you can only get tattooed if you are 18 years of age or above, and we will check your ID when you arrive. It doesn’t matter if you have parental permission. This isn’t a rule that we personally make, it’s government regulation. You can still make a booking with me if you are under 18, but the booking date must be set after your 18th birthday. Thank you for understanding!
I am happy to answer any questions you might have – please email me 🙂
