“Flash” refers to tattoo designs that I have already created, that are ready to be tattooed exactly as drawn. You can view my available flash here here.
I will consider minor changes to my flash designs (changes to the color or shading, adding or removing background or framing elements, etc), however, you must let me know when booking if you want anything about your chosen design to be different than it is in the reference image. If your requested edits will require significant re-designing, I will ask that you request a custom tattoo. We can usually mirror and/or resize the image (subject to minimum size), and in some cases I can make minor adjustments during your appointment to better fit your body (i.e., freehanding leaves or other minor elements).
All flash designs are priced at a flat rate based on size, style, level of detail, etc. The “standard price” given for each flash design reflects the cost to tattoo that design on an arm or leg (excluding joints, hands, and feet), within the given size range. Larger sizes and more difficult placements (torso, hands, feet, knees, elbows, shoulder caps, neck, head) will be charged a higher rate, to be determined at your appointment based on final size and placement.
Most of my flash designs are repeatable, meaning I may tattoo them on multiple people. More complicated flash designs will usually only be tattooed once, although I may tattoo similar variations of the same design. I may also use some of my flash designs for other purposes. This can include selling prints, shirts, or other merchandise with the design, granting permission to other tattoo artists to tattoo the design, or licensing the design to companies to print on their products. If it is important for you to have a design that is 100% unique to you, I recommend booking a custom tattoo.
