ABOUT SESSION WORK
Larger pieces take more time. I can help estimate, but it's hard to truly know how long the process will take. Most full sleeves take anywhere from 20 to 40 hours. Half sleeves can take between 10 and 20 hours. The larger pieces are divided into smaller sessions of which can span between 4-12 months.
• The first session usually requires 2 to 3 hours.
• It's good to setup the next appointment(s) ASAP with ample time for healing in between.
• Sessions are usually 2-4 hours. But I can go as long as 6 hours if need be.
Estimated pricing for single sitting tattoos can be given as an estimate. But the actual price is always determined by the final/complete piece. Unless the client gives me a spending limit in advance, then the tattoo will be sized and detailed accordingly. This is fair for both you and me - nobody will be uncomfortably locked into an over or under estimate.
Pioneer rate is $200 an hour.
To setup the first appointment, I take a non refundable $150 deposit.
This deposit goes towards the price of the tattoo, remains for each additional appointment and comes off the last session. (www.allentattoo.com/payment)
* There is no charge for drawing/creation, unless I deem the project to be consuming, then we'll talk.
A few times a year I travel to tattoo at various shops. I'll post that info on my Instagram (instagram.com/davidallen)
