- BOOKING IN -
How do I go about booking with you?
Send through a booking enquiry on the next page or through any of her social media accounts.
We will provide a quote and you will be offered available dates for your preferred month.
Please respect Bex works closely with her guides and needs to feel the energy of your tattoo, so if for any reason you receive a reply saying it isnt something Bex feels she can do for you, please know it is coming from a loving place.
Can we have a face to face consult to discuss my idea once I am booked?
Yes most definitely , this can be done at the studio in Stawell or alternatively we can do a consult via text if you can not travel.
Can you tattoo a design you have already done?
All tattoos are custom designed for each client and replication is not possible, she can however use a prior tattoo as inspiration.
Can you tattoo a design I drew or my friend drew?
Yes, she will not directly replicate a design but can use it as inspiration.
When Do I get to see the draw up?
Bec does draw ups on a weekly basis, so expect to receive it 1 to 2 days prior to your appointment .
More info on the drawup process below.
Do you do cover ups or reworks of old tattoos?
On occasion Bex will do a cover up/rework , this is a specialized skill and not every tattoo will be able to be reworked or covered. Feel free to send through images of what you are thinking of covering and she can assess what’s possible.
Is there anything you don't tattoo?

What payment do you accept on the day of my booking?
Cash or Eftpos (Card transactions attract a 2% surcharge)

You will still pay the full fee as per quote as Bec has booked your session in for that allocated time.
If you have a low pain tolerance or know you can’t get tattooed for extended periods of time we recommend you mention that in your initial enquiry so we can book you accordingly.
What happens if Bec needs to reschedule or cancel our appointment?
