Please Note: My diary is currently closed.

Thank you to everyone who has applied for an appointment for my guest spots in Berlin & London this August, we will get back to your booking request as soon as possible.

I will be announcing further guest spots in the coming weeks, make sure to sign-up to my newsletter if you’d like to be notified when my diary opens next.

How can I book an appointment?

You can only apply for an appointment when my diary is open. Once I open my diary, I will share a link to a tattoo request form which you will need to fill in. I usually 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 you can sign up to my newsletter. I also always announce openings and guest spots on Instagram too.

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?

I am currently on a Summer break in the Berlin countryside but I will be working some guest spots in various European cities over the next few months. Make sure to check my Instagram regularly and sign-up to my newsletter for updates if you don’t want to miss out on openings.

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.

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.
