Tattoo Booking for Los Angeles + Tokyo
Your preferred sketch will be used as the base for your tattoo design, it is fully customizable with your input.
You are free to pick any hair style, outfit, accessories, text overlay or add scenery to this design. You may also choose to erase parts from the sketch if, for example, you only wanted to keep the face and make it a smaller piece.
Soto might request an inspiration moodboard from you in order to execute your vision in the best possible way, keep in mind this is a collaborative process and to take Soto's opinions into account when it comes to best composition or placement decisions ;)
The final design will be tattooed by Soto, size and placement of your choosing~

The deposit is automatically VOID if upon rescheduling, the new/second date needs to be rescheduled again or is canceled by you, the client. Or if we are notified less than 72 hours prior (working days) to the original appointment date.
