How do I book an appointment?

Jacki then emails the clients she is able to take on for that period. Due to high demand she is unable to work with all clients.

Tattoo designing process

Jacki offers custom tattoos, she prefers to draw all tattoos as original designs. She does ask for reference to get an idea of what you want to base your idea on. During your consult she will go over the details of placement, and style. She does not send out artwork before appointments, however she budgets in time if the artwork needs to be adjusted. 

Jacki specialize in several styles of tattooing.

  • blackwork illustrations

  • botanical designs

  • pet portraits

  • bold color work

  • anime

these types of designs will be given preference in the booking process.
