Hi! My name is Jun (they/them). I'm always a work in progress.

Come as you are. Patience and persistency will get you where you’re supposed to be. Time will tell if we’re meant to cross paths!

Safer space for being human; that means acknowledging feelings, honoring differences, making mistakes, holding talks if it comes up. Capitalism is dehumanizing, let's not have it in my place of practice (as much as we can, acknowledging that to create discourse/shift in power we must work within the systems already put in place).

I tend to hold my practice as a comforting, healing, calm environment.

I’m also super easy-going so don’t be scared, lol.


FAQ

1) Where are you located?

I'm mostly in Portland, OR at Constellation Tattoo. This is where I have most availability. Second is Oakland, CA.

I have no availability in Minneapolis for new clients at this time.
I am not traveling anywhere else at this time.
 

2) What is your pricing/rates?

Pricing/rate is variant on location because of different shop rates/travel cost.

Portland - 175/hr or 1000-1200 day rate (6-8hrs)

Oakland - 200/hr or 1200-1500 day rate (6-8hrs)

Minneapolis - 175/hr or 1000-1200 day rate (6-8hrs)

Flash pieces are generally cheaper because they are already pre-designed, around 100-150/hr.

If you are financially privileged, please pay me my full rate (this way I can offer flexibility to others).
If you want to work within a budget, that is totally possible! I'm happy to offer budgeting to folks who are poc/trans/disabled/chronically-ill/caretakers.
Since Flash pieces are cheaper, you can also check out my available designs (send email). Custom work takes more time/research/energy which is why it is more expensive.

3) What is your current booking status?

Currently I am booked up until the end of 2018 and will be accepting proposals for Jan-Apr (Portland) at the beginning of the New Year! Send your inquiries after Jan 1st.

June-July 2019 will be booked in May 2019.

Sept-Dec 2019 will be booked in August 2019

For Oakland, I will be open for custom design in June 2019, for appointments in August 2019.

I am currently not taking new clients in Minneapolis, sorry! Maybe 2020?
I am not traveling anywhere else at this time.

4) Are you open for flash pieces?

If I have cancellations, I will post flash openings on IG (@ajunkysock)

Starting 2019, I will be posting flash openings on IG at the beginning of every month. They will be first come first served and require a 50$ deposit via Paypal or Cash App.

5) How do I book an appointment with you?

PLEASE READ THE BOOKING STATUS ABOVE (Q3)! I won’t respond to your inquiry unless I am open for bookings! Next one ins Jan 1st for Portland!

~Primarily looking for creative openness, freehand, or flash designs. Open to subjects and concepts.

~I enjoy custom/freehand projects that have a lot of meaning and symbology. Imagery I enjoy working with is animals and plants combined, animals interacting with other animals/objects or taking action/doing something, dreamy and surreal, can be dark. I don't mind doing custom/freehand on a walk-in basis too (schedule a date, then discuss design at the beginning of your appt)

~Open to doing comic/manga art styles and translating and/or collaborating other artist’s work (with permission).

~I cannot not respond to all emails in any expected timely manner, sorry. It’s just impossible, I'm a one-person business.

~Don’t take it personally if you don’t hear back, feel free to keep trying!
I usually do not respond to emails/requests until I am scheduling appointments. I read emails and keep them in mind but may not respond unless I have dates available to present to you. Some emails also get lost in the shuffle.
