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.
1) Where are you located?
I'm mostly in Portland, OR at Constellation Tattoo Collective.
I have no availability in Minneapolis or Oakland for new clients/projects at this time.
I will be traveling to Seattle and Vancouver BC in April and will be only taking Flash appts!
2) What is your pricing/rates?
Pricing/rate is variant on location because of different shop rates/travel cost. I have a general Size/Pricing Guide.
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 125-150/hr.
If You Are Financially Privileged, Please Pay Me My Full Rate So 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 offered at a lower rate than custom, you can also check out my available designs (under “FLASH” tab). Custom work takes more time/research/energy which is why it is more costly.
3) What is your current booking status?
Currently I am booked up for custom work until May 2019 and will be accepting proposals for June-Sept (Portland) at the beginning of the New Year! Send your inquiries May 1st-5th.
June-Aug 2019 will be booked in May 1st-5th.
Oct-Dec 2019 will be booked in Sept 1st-5th
For Oakland, I will be open for custom designs in June 2019, for appointments in September 2019.
I am currently not taking new clients in Minneapolis, sorry! Maybe 2020? I grew up here so I have a lot of friends and returning clients to tattoooooo <3
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 is May 1st-5th for Portland!
1)Description/Background of design
2)List of elements/things you want to include in design + reference images
3)Size (approximate size in inches/cm), are you open to size?
4)Placement (if you are undecided, discuss! You can also give me a list of open areas and give you suggestions)
+ A photo with the area you want tattooed circled
5)Budget (ranges or limits)
6)Dates if specific
~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.
~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 will not read new inquiries until during booking periods. Some emails also get lost in the shuffle.
Email inquiries to firstname.lastname@example.org
