We added this to our website in March of 2012. Doing our best!
We receive more email than we can possibly answer. All email is handled by tattoo artists: no services, assistants or middle men. Tattoo artists are best at tattooing and taking care of just so many people. There is no possible way to answer all inquiries. We’ve tried. Conan built a career as the internet was taking off and has tried every variation of managing inquires from hand-answering each to personal assistants...to drafting this explanation. Voluta loves you but we cannot keep up.
We will try, though. Each of us handles our own hours, schedules, clientele and...if there is anything left...email. We will do our best to answer new inquiries after our current clients and former clients. We wont guarantee a reply time, or even that you’ll get one. But we will try.
Each of us maintains a waiting list that is lovingly tended (except for Michele, as she has just begun her career). They vary in length from artist to artists, month to month. We never hurry, never feel pressured, never really upset anybody whom we tattoo (and those are the only folks we can worry about, if you think about it).
We know this doesn’t answer the question of when we will answer emails or how long waiting lists are. It is just our way of letting you know that we are doing our best at what we are best at: people and tattoos.
Thanks for your understanding.
