How do I book with you?

  • You can book with me one of three ways: through the Contact Page here on the website, via email at, or by sending a message to my Facebook Business page at Julia McKay Tattoo. 

  • Do NOT send a DM through Instagram since I am very bad at remembering to check those. 

  • Once I have your initial request, I will send out all the information I need in order to begin the consultation. I do all the consultations online and the deposit must be sent through Venmo. 

  • You cannot book an appointment without sending a deposit.

What is the cost?

  • $180 hourly with a $100 minimum

  • Deposits will be between $100 and $180 depending on design, size, etc. 

  • I charge hourly for custom pieces and for the "Available Designs" that I post occasionally. When I do Flash Sheets the cost is a set rate for each design rather than an hourly charge. 

  • It is cash mandatory for first time client, then cash preferred after that. Venmo is accepted occasionally once we've gotten to know one another. 

Can I see a draft before booking?

  • I do NOT send out drafts or sketches for clients who just want an "idea" of what I could do for them. That is what my online portfolio and social media accounts are for. If you like what I do, then you will have to trust that I can do what you want.

  • I require a deposit and a firm appointment date before I do any drawing and even then I won't start designing until your appointment comes close as I work on projects in the order they appear on the calendar. 

  • I then DO send a draft the day before our appointment so you can take a look. 

  • If you want MINOR changes or adjustments, I can do that. If you want MAJOR changes once you've seen the design, a reschedule might be in order. 

Are there refunds?

  • While I have never had someone ask for a refund on their tattoo (thank goodness!), there are no refunds on Deposits. 

  • Deposits hold the date, are an agreement that you show up and that I have the drawing done on time. They are also for the artist to have some insurance in case clients no-show. 

What if I have to cancel or reschedule?

  • I understand that life happens and things can change in a moment with schedules and finances. If you have to reschedule, PLEASE send a message or email as soon as you know you can't make it. 

  • The deposit will not be forfeit if you are able to let me know ahead of time, rather than no-call or no-showing on me. 

  • Sometimes I have to reschedule on YOU. I hate to do this but with two young kids that go to daycare, it can be hard to guarantee every day will go as planned. I always send messages and warnings as soon as I can so you aren't too caught off guard and I plan for those days so we can get you back on the schedule as soon as possible.
