UPDATE As of May 11, 2021. I’m currently FULLY BOOKED through the end of Aug 2021 and NOT taking appointments at this time. I do not keep a wait list. Please check back for updates or follow me on Instagram (@alexstrangler)
• Where are you located?
I am located in Las Vegas, Nevada. My licensed private studio is about 20 minutes South East of the Strip. I am available to tattoo by appointment only.
• Do you do custom work?
Usually yes! As of right now I am taking a little break from customs and will only booking flash but keep an eye out on my IG or here for updates! When I start taking customs again I am happy to draw any custom design for you if your concept fits within my interests and the type of work that I do. I do not deviate from the style of work that you see on my Instagram and website. Please note: I’m currently not accepting large scale/multiple session projects.
•How far out do you book?
I typically book out anywhere from 2-4 months. If you’d like an appointment further out than 4 months please don’t submit a tattoo request until I announce books opening for the month you are interested in. I do not keep a wait list for last minute openings. I post last minute availability to my IG so keep an eye out!
• How do I book an appointment?
Fill out the tattoo request form for an appointment. If you are an already established client, no need to fill out the form just make sure you send all required info. As of right now I’m focusing on flash pieces only. For custom work I usually pick tattoo ideas that I feel are within my ability/interest. I require full artistic freedom when designing custom work. Colors can be discussed at the time of your appointment but if you have something specific in mind please let me know! Take a look at my tattoo portfolio to get an idea of the type of work I prefer to do. I prefer to do bright/colorful work with bold line work. Please be prepared to pay a $100-$200 deposit to book an appointment. Appointments are not guaranteed without a deposit and will not be held without it.
• What if I don’t hear back from you?
You may send a follow up e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org if it’s been over 2 weeks and you haven’t heard back. I handle my own scheduling so sometimes there can be a delay.
• What are your rates?
Most of my pricing is based on the design size, placement, and time. In order to give you a price quote on a design, please make sure you are descriptive as possible with your tattoo request (especially size/placement) and include reference photos if you have something specific in mind. Most of my work falls around $200-$600. I have a $500 minimum for any custom work. If you have a budget please make sure you let me know!
• How much is your deposit and what are your deposit/cancellation policies?
A NON-REFUNDABLE deposit of $100-$200 is required to book an appointment. Deposits can be submitted via PayPal/Venmo or I can invoice if you prefer to pay with a card. I will send you payment links for your convenience. The deposit goes toward the final cost of your tattoo. Deposits need to be sent within 24 hours when date/time is agreed upon to secure your appointment. Otherwise, you risk losing your spot. Deposits are non-transferable.
IMPORTANT! During the months of Oct-Dec reschedules will not be permitted regardless of notice. Please understand these spots are difficult to fill during the holidays. You will be required to submit a new deposit if you are rescheduling during Oct-Dec.
Your deposit will be forfeited if:
•You do not show up to your appointment.
•You cancel your appointment or reschedule without giving at least 5 days notice.
•You reschedule during Oct-Dec regardless of notice.
•You arrive more than 20 minutes late to you appointment.
•You reschedule a second time, regardless of notice. You may reschedule a second time but will need to submit a new deposit.
•You arrive to your appointment without government-issued identification.
•You change your design from what was previously discussed.
•Deposits are valid for 6 months. If not redeemed within 6 months a new deposit is required.
*Upon paying a deposit I agree to all policies and acknowledge that I have communicated my tattoo design idea to the artist to my satisfaction, and have reviewed the artist’s prior works to decide that the artist can implement my idea to my satisfaction. I understand that creating a tattoo design based on a client’s concept is subjective, and that variations may exist between my concept and the finished design. If the finished design is not to my liking, minor changes can be made at the artist’s discretion. However, I understand that substantial changes to the design or the request of an entirely new drawing or draft will require a new deposit, and the original deposit will be forfeited as payment for the artist’s drawing time.
•Can I bring a guest with me to my appointment?
Yes, you may bring ONE guest. If you are getting tattooed with a friend/family member/etc NO additional guests will be permitted. No one under the age of 18 is permitted into the studio.
• Can I see my custom tattoo design before my appointment?
I understand that you want to be involved in every step of the process in designing your tattoo, and that you may want to see a full drawing or sketch before your appointment for approval. However, designs will not be ready to view/make changes to until the day of your appointment. Please review my portfolio prior to submitting a tattoo request, trust in your artist is very important. If you have a specific vision for your tattoo please make sure you communicate with me and send reference photos.
• Can I get your artwork tattooed by someone else? Do you offer tattoo tickets?
I do not currently offer Tattoo Tickets or allow other artists to tattoo any of my designs. Please do not use any of my designs without permission.
• Can you fix a tattoo by another artist?
I occasionally make exceptions if I feel like it’s something fairly easy to work with. Please send a photo of your tattoo(s) if inquiring about any cover-ups, fix-ups, or re-do’s.
• Are there any areas you wont tattoo?
I do not tattoo hands, fingers, neck, face. I’m also currently not tattooing ribs/stomach unless it’s a smaller piece.
