Frequently asked questions

How do I book an appointment?

We are so happy you would like to book with us ! Sweet Appalachia Tattoo is a private, appointment only studio. Jacki opens her books every 3 months. When our booking goes live, there is a consult form we have available on our website. 

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.

Before your appointment 

It is always best to be well rested and clean. Make sure that you eat before your appointment, feel free to bring a snack and a drink, we keep bottled water available for clients.

Make sure you wear something comforable and easy to access the area you want tattooed. New clothing is not advised as tattoo pigment can ruin clothing and cannot be washed out. 

Pricing and Payment

Tattoo pricing depends on the subject matter, how large, and where the design is going on the body. Jacki is always open to working with budgets if you have one. your budget will be asked in the consultation form.

we do have 100 dollar minimum, and roughly charge between $150- $175 per hour. 

Tattoo designs

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 your appointment, however she budgets in time if the artwork needs to be adjusted. 

Jacki does specialize in several styles of tattooing. blackwork illustrations, botanical designs, pet portraits, bold color work and anime these types of designs will be given preference in the booking process.
