Please Note: My diary is currently closed.

Thank you to everyone who has applied for an appointment between Sep-Dec at my new studio in Berlin. If we haven’t yet, we will get back to your booking request as soon as possible.

How can I book an appointment?

You can only apply for an appointment when my diary is open. Each time I open my diary I will share a private link (via newsletter & instagram) which will take you to my online tattoo booking request form. I open my diary every few months and I only book appointments 2-3 months in advance maximum. My diary is only open for a limited time every time so if you don’t want to miss out on openings you can sign up to my newsletter or follow me on instagram (and turn on post notification).

I've sent my request, what's next?

When I close my bookings I will go through all the requests and my assistant Charlie will reply to everyone as soon as possible; please note this can sometimes take several weeks. Once he contacts you it’s important that you reply to him quickly because appointments are limited. You will be able to discuss your idea further and ask any questions you may have, and he will also give you a quote for your tattoo.

Where is Rachael tattooing?

From September 2018 I will be tattooing at my new studio, La Graine in Berlin, Prenzlauer Berg. Make sure to sign-up to my newsletter if you’d like to be notified when I open my diary.

What do you need to create my tattoo?

I like to tattoo unique custom designs in my style, drawn especially for you and tattooed once only. I’ll need some reference pictures explaining what you like and what you don’t like, a photo of the area and some details about your idea. You can send any reference pictures you wish (from my work or other artists) but please note I will never copy a design. Once I have all the details I need, I will draw your tattoo at home and show you the design on the day of your appointment.

Do you have available flash designs?

All of my available flash / wanna-do designs are available on my story highlight on my instagram. Flash designs get priority over custom requests and I often reserve spontaneous openings for them too.

If you would like to book in for a flash design please email me with the subject “flash design” and include the following information: full name, date of birth, place of residence, tattoo placement & size and your preferred dates.

How much will my tattoo cost?

I like to take my time when I’m tattooing so my prices are calculated by piece rather than by hour. I do not charge for the drawing time, even if it takes several hours. The cost of your tattoo will mainly depend on size, placement and level of intricacy; these factors can sometimes be altered to suit a specific budget. Due to the amount of tattoo requests I receive I can only give you a quote if you are successful in getting an appointment.

What do I do before and after my tattoo?

If you are successful in getting an appointment I will send you all the information you need to know to prepare for your appointment and care for your new tattoo afterwards.
