Please read thoroughly, before submitting requests for tattoo work from buddy.beans

All booking requires agreement to my terms & conditions.

 please be as specific as possible about design, size, and placement. Include any photo references you have, as consultations are held online only, not in person. Tattoos are booked based upon the design itself, not by artist’s availability, if the design is approved, available dates will be discussed during your online consultation. 

           Custom illustrative blackwork is the specific style buddy.beans specializes in, meaning they work in black ink onlyNothing above collar bones, or below ankles or wrists (including fingers, top of hands, feet, and no behind the ear.) Tattoos must be at least palm sized, and lettering must be of adequate scale to ensure proper healing and longevity.    
   NO SINGLE NEEDLE TATTOOS, arm bands, no direct copies of other artist’s work, no touch up/reworking of other tattooer's work, and no cover ups.

Please refer to their portfolio on instagram @_buddy.beans_ for examples of shading, sizing, line weights and subject matter before requesting an online consultation. 

Be aware buddy.beans books out months in advance, by appointment only, no walk-ins, no exceptions.

this is a safe space and we have the right to refuse service to anyone. If you are racist, homophobic, transphobic, body negative, or any variety of asshole, you are simply not welcome.

Do not hire a third party to design or draw your tattoo for you.

Numbing creams are not an option, please do not attempt to dull the pain by any means yourself…tattoos hurt, that’s part of the experience. Group tattoos are typically priced on how long the first one takes regardless the number of said party.

Absolutely no guests will be permitted through the door, with any client, inside the studio, at any time. If there is a group of you only one will be permitted at a time, while the others can enjoy the lovely local surrounding businesses wicker park has to offer.

A $50 nonrefundable booking fee is required for everyone, which may only be submitted through Venmo @buddy_beans

Again, booking fees are nonrefundable, nontransferable, and mandatory.
