I am committed to creating a safer space for people who may be nervous about getting tattooed at a tattoo studio. I have a ZERO tolerance policy for any racist, homophobic, transphobic, fatphobic, ableist, or otherwise hateful speech or behavior.
I have no reservations about tattooing people with dark skin. I am also happy to provide examples of previous work I have done on people with dark skin. I am also always happy to do provide ink tests on clients who are curious how a particular color(s) might heal on their skin.
Valentines offers a 25% optional discount for PoC. This discount is part of a greater effort we are continuing to make to address appropriation, colorism, and anti-blackness in the tattoo community. It is constructed with ongoing feedback from BIPoC in our community. This discount is completely optional and available upon request. Please let me know if you would like to use it. Thank you!
