I'm tattooing at Moth and Dagger Tattoo Studio
610 Bush St.
San Francisco, Ca
(415) 834-5127

Moth and Dagger's hourly rate is $180 per hour. My current minimum charge is $180. I do not charge for anything other than time spent tattooing. There is no charge for consultations or time spent on designs.

Cash is the only form of payment I can take on tattoo day. PayPal can be used over email as a convenience for appointment deposits. But PayPal fee percentages for amounts any higher than deposits are too costly. Cash only please.


I cannot supply sketches for pre-approval at any time before the day of your tattoo. Priority is always placed on designs for each day's upcoming appointments. Because of this, I never have time to sit with your design until it's turn in line presents itself. Usually a day or two before the appointment date. The initial consultation appointment before booking is used to discuss subject matter, sizing, placement, basic layout/composition and any specific details that can be contributed to your tattoo idea. Your file is then placed in line behind impending designs. My goal in each consultation is to communicate as much as possible before a deposit is taken and a tattoo appointment is booked. This helps to assure my understanding of what's important for you in regards to your requests; keeping design changes on appointment day infrequent, but if requested, usually quick and minimal.

Please remember to bring a valid I.D. that includes both your picture and birth date. Examples of a valid I.D. are a driver's license, state issued I.D. card, military I.D., or passport. A student I.D. card, and temporary driver's license are not valid forms of I.D. California law prohibits the tattooing of any person under 18. Parental consent is not an option.

A 180 dollar deposit is required for all tattoo appointments. Your deposit is deducted off the cost of your finished tattoo, but is otherwise non refundable. I need 48 hours notice for all rescheduling. Rescheduling within less than 48 hours of your appointment, or not showing for tattoo appointment forfeits your deposit.
