FAQ

  • Where are you located?
    I am located in Chai Wan, Hong Kong. I will send you the address of my studio when I provide you with a date and time for your appointment.
  • How old do I have to be to get a tattoo from you?
    You must be 18 years and over.
  • What is your minimum fee?
    $2,500 HKD plus tax for script and $4,500 HKD plus tax for simple line work. Anything more detailed will cost upwards of $4,500.
  • Do you charge by the hour?
    No, I do not charge by hour because I work very quickly. The price of the tattoo is dependent on how detailed it is, its size, and where it is located on your body.
  • Do I need to put down a deposit to book an appointment?
    Yes, a $500 HKD deposit is required to book an appointment. No deposit, no appointment. I will only ask for a deposit if your appointment request is accepted. Do not send me a deposit if I haven't accepted your appointment request. If you receive a request for a deposit via Instagram, please make sure the account messaging you is actually my account @mrkootattoo because the request might be coming from a fake account. If it is, please report the account. I will only ever ask you to make your deposit using the secure Deposit page on my website.
  • What happens if I cancel, need to reschedule, or don't come to my appointment?
    Your deposit is NON-REFUNDABLE if you cancel or don’t come to your appointment. If you need to reschedule, your deposit will carry over, but you will have to wait until the next booking period to get an appointment. If you intend to cancel or reschedule, please provide at least 3 days notice prior to the appointment date.
  • How much will my tattoo(s) cost?
    The final price will be the price I quote you when I accept your appointment request, plus tax, minus your deposit. Tip is not included in the quoted price.
  • What methods of payment do you accept?
    With the exception of the deposit, I take CASH ONLY. I do not accept e-transfers due to bad experiences with people sending me payments and then cancelling them afterwards :(
  • How do I book an appointment?
    If my books are open, head over to the Book page on my website and fill out the appointment request form. If you don't have a Google account, you will need to create one to fill out the form. If you need a touch-up, make sure to fill out the touch-up request form instead. If my books are closed, sign up for my mailing list to be the first to know next time I open my books.
  • How do I make a Google account?
    Just follow Google's instructions. It's really easy to do, and you don't need a Gmail address to do it!
  • Can I book an appointment for more than one person?
    Yes, but each of you will have to fill out an appointment request form. In the section of the form that asks for your unavailability, you can mention that you want to book an appointment with other people and provide their emails. Even if you are coming to the same appointment, each person will have to give a deposit.
  • Can I book a consultation before my appointment?
    No. I don't provide consultations. I will create a design for your tattoo(s) shortly ahead of your appointment based on the information you provided in the appointment request form. When you come to your appointment, I will show you the design and we can make adjustments or small changes to it if necessary.
  • How long before I hear back from you after submitting an appointment request form?
    You can expect to receive an email response from mrkootattoo@gmail.com within a week. Once you submit an appointment request form or a touch-up request form, you will receive a copy of your response by email. If I do not contact you AFTER A WEEK, please email me the copy of your response with with "No Response - Appointment Request Form" or "No Response - Touch-Up Request Form" as the subject line, and I will get back to you ASAP. Please, DO NOT submit a new appointment request form.
  • Can I request a specific day and time for my appointment?
    Generally, no. Due to a high volume of clients, A DATE AND TIME FOR YOUR APPOINTMENT WILL BE PROVIDED TO YOU. I cannot guarantee a specific date or time. When you fill out the appointment request form, it will only ask for the days you are UNAVAILABLE. However, if you live outside the GTA and will only be in Toronto for a few days, please specify what those days are. I will do my best to accommodate you. I work Monday to Friday from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. If that doesn't work for you, and you want to request an appointment on one of my days off, you can, but please note that I will charge you a day rate of $3,000.00 plus the cost of the tattoo.
  • How do I pick a design for my tattoo(s)?
    If you are not sure exactly what kind of piece or design you would like, in the appointment request form, you can tell me elements or items that you would like to see included in your tattoo and I will create a design that incorporates them. Please keep in mind, I only tattoo in my style. See my style guide or my Instagram @mrkootattoo for reference.
  • Do I get to see the drawing of the the tattoo(s) before the appointment?
    I only draw/provide a drawing of the tattoo(s) DURING the appointment. No drawings will be provided ahead of time.
  • What if I want to change the design of my tattoo(s) after you've booked me in for my appointment?
    If you want to change your design, please email me as early as possible ahead of your appointment so that I can adjust the price and/or duration of your appointment as needed. This might mean that I have to reschedule your appointment to my next booking period.
  • Is there anything I need to do before I come to my appointment?
    Yes: Fill out a waiver form! Eat food, be hydrated No blood-thinning medication or painkillers Shave the tattoo area(s) if possible (I’m trying to save the environment from one-time use razors!). Be on time! If you are more than 15 minutes late to your appointment, it will be cancelled. My appointments are all back-to-back and I need to be respectful of my other clients’ time.
  • Can I bring a friend with me to my appointment?
    Feel free to bring a friend with you if you like! There will be beverages and snacks available too!
  • What style of tattoos do you do?
    I specialize in fine line micro realism tattoos with a geometric touch. I also do script and micro portrait work. I only tattoo in my style. See my style guide or my Instagram @mrkootattoo for reference.
  • Do you do colour tattoos?
    I only use black, white and grey ink. No colour tattoos.
  • Is the ink you use vegan?
    Yes, vegan and biodegradable! :)
  • What areas of the body do you tattoo?
    I only tattoo limbs, the sternum area, the upper back, the face and the neck. No ribs or stomach pieces.
  • How do I take care of my tattoo while it's healing?
    Please see the Aftercare page on my website for instructions on how to care for your new tattoo.
  • Do you offer touch-ups?
    I will do a touch-up if the tattoo is too light for your liking or parts of it are missing once it has fully healed. Each tattoo comes with one FREE touch-up within a year of getting it. However, areas prone to quick fading such as hands, feet, the neck, and areas with wrinkles do not come with a free touch-up. If you need a touch-up, please fill out the touch-up request form on my Book page.
