how to book.

-To book an appointment, email SHAWN@UNDERTHESURFACETATTOOS.COM

-PLEASE ALLOW ME TIME TO RESPOND. Replying to your email is priority, but I may be very busy. I ask please be patient with me when waiting on a reply. My wife, Ashley, assists me to ensure faster communication times. 

-Off days are Sundays & Mondays. If you have a Sunday or Monday request for an appt, there will be an additional convenience fee of $100, If Shawn approves that day. The $100 is due with your deposit. 

-Deposits are 100% NON-REFUNDABLE. Every appointment requires a deposit. This will be deducted from the price of your tattoo at the end. If you are doing multiple sessions, the deposit will come off the last appointment.

-Cancellations/Reschedules- Please let me know at least 48 hours in advance if you need to do either. If there is no contact and/or a no show, your deposit will be forfeited. Any appts rescheduled more than twice, your deposit will be forfeited and another may be required to book that future appt. I understand things happen last minute sometimes, but please be mindful that my time is money and rescheduling and such is a lose of both.

-Be on time.
