I have been tattooing since 1995 thanks to a rudimentary introduction to the important stuff (sterilization, safety, cross contamination) and the technical stuff (nickel, dime, liner, shader) by Scott Melchi.
I have been a shop owner (the OUCH! gallery, Muncie, IN), a flash monkey, and now a "custom tattooist" (whatever that means).
Check out my hours and availability in the FIND ME section.
Standard rates are $150/hour for custom work. Large work (sleeves etc...) require a $100 drawing down payment that is applied to the final hour of tattooing.
I enjoy almost all types of tattooing, I don't do portraits, and tribal is $175/hour
