David's common questions

DO I NEED TO PAY A DEPOSIT?
A non-refundable deposit holds your tattoo appointment. If multiple sessions are needed, the deposit rolls to and is applied to the final cost. Two reschedule requests per deposit can be made at least 48 hours prior to your appointment.

Deposits are voided for last minute reschedules, cancellations, no-shows, later arrivals after 30 minutes, if significant unapproved concept changes are made at your artist's discretion, or if you do not read and follow the COVID-19 ProtocolMoon's Questions page, and this Questions section.
WHEN CAN I SEE THE DRAWING FOR MY TATTOO?
We'll review the custom artwork together during your tattoo appointment. I'm able to make small changes at that time. Significant changes that were not discussed during the submission could result in the loss of your deposit.

My available flash designs are tattooed as is, unless we have agreed on changes before I accepted the appointment request. Minor changes can be made on the day of, but a heads-up is preferred.

About
David closes his eyes and sees black-sand beaches, grey oceans, grey skies, the sound of wind twisting through trees and rocks and deep-green grasses scattered with mossy bones. Strange stone houses rise from the grassy fields that lead up to the white-tipped mountains in the distance. Howling is often heard in dark and far-away places long after the bonfires have died.

When he opens them again, he is in an armless leather chair in a bright-white tattoo studio, his machine humming in his hand. He relaxes his shoulders and takes a deep breath before he begins His Work. He has been doing this since 2012.

David draws. With black ink and hundreds of lines he shapes the natural world: bones, snakes, plants, antlers, and horns. He loves all types of animals, most insects, and always loves drawing the human figure. His Work blends people and nature bringing out a unique magick. He has been a student of art since 2000.

It’s said that he once rolled a twenty-sided-die, a critical success, and now lives with his partner: Tina Poe and their maybe-a-cat/ maybe-a-monster child-pet Mojito Poe. He has worked at her Tattoo Studio in Austin, Texas, called Moon Tattoo, since it opened in 2016. His house is filled with plants and bones and the firepit in the yard is always full of wood.
