The best way to schedule is by email.  Let me know what service you are interested in.

EMAIL: or Text: 704-845-1533.                               

I want the appointment process to be easy. But, I do stay busy so they are necessary. The best way to make one is to text me (704) 845-1533 or email  and let me know your needs.  I will get back to you within the day. 

Permanent make up & microneedling services are generally 1 hour appointments per procedure.  Whereas tattoos can take multiple sessions to completion. So, I do need to know what the tattoo is prior to booking for an accurate time estimate, as well as time to create artwork necessary to do the tattoo with. 

Consultations can be arranged in person. But often working through email or a phone call can work fine. 

  Thanks in advance, Nikki


Payment denotes acceptance of this agreement.

Policy for Retainer/Deposit

Thank you so much for your interest in booking with me! 

I regret the need for a retainer fee, especially for my long-term clients, but I cannot afford or absorb days with multiple reschedules or cancelations. I am prioritizing & holding this time just for you. PLEASE prioritize this time yourself. My time is in demand and if you miss your appointment or want to reschedule your appointment , it is unlikely I can see you again for a minimum of 8 weeks. That is just how far I stay booked out. 

A deposit/retainer fee is required in consideration of the amount of time I am holding for you. And often have spent hours of my time creating artwork for you. The longer the spot has been held, the larger the impact. As the time has probably been requested by others numerous times but can never be filled within a few days, so please be mindful of this- I really  want to see you! I do not want to keep your deposit ever.

The policy is as follows:

  • All deposits are non- refundable period. 
  • One reschedule is allowed within 1 week (7 days)  of your appointment. Otherwise, another deposit will be necessary to book again, or in some cases, a missed appointment fee may be requested.
  • For tattoos that are more than one session a $500 retainer is held until the last session. If you don’t finish the project with me. That is lost.
  • Please do not be more than 15 min late.
  • Please do not use numbing agents as that can greatly impact the application of the tattoo. I will use a topical anesthetic here for cosmetic services.
  • Please do not bring minors to your appointment.
  • Please do bring a valid US ID.

Your consideration of my time is so greatly appreciated, I want to see you, period!

I so appreciate your business, but respectfully ask that you leave anyone under 18 at home. This includes, infants, toddlers, small children and teens.  I do my best work when I can concentrate and also want to be considerate to clients who didn’t bring their children and are trying to stay calm & comfortable during their appointment. 

I am sorry but if you bring them, you could forfeit your appointment since I can't work on you at that time.
Also, In NC it's illegal to tattoo anyone under 18. (NC is not a permission sign state-not legal here). So, parents you should really question the place that's willing to do so...It's simply not legal.
