I know you have questions. Here are some that I get a lot … along with the answers. If you have other questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.

What's the best way to get in touch?

When do your books open?

Every 6 to 9 months, an announcement will be made on Facebook and Instagram (@mistylockettattoo) and a mass automated text/email will be sent to all pre-existing clients letting them know the date in which books will officially be open!
I close my books in-between cycles to keep the schedule manageable.
When the books are closed, there will be posts/stories/messages letting everyone know booking is done until the next cycle.

Who books your appointments?

I do all my own bookings, so please send all inquiries to me via text or email.

Is there a wait list?

Yes! Please fill out the NEW TATTOO INQUIRY FORM and say YES to being on the wait list.

How long after I send an inquiry should I expect to hear from Misty Locket?

Please be patient as responses may take several days as there are a LOT of text messages to respond to when I am not tattooing clients.

What type of tattoos does Misty Locket make?

Color and/or black and gray realism ONLY that are ideally 6 hours or more. Occasionally, I will do some smaller tattoos if they are realistic.

What is realism/photorealism?

Realism means flowers, faces, animals, skulls, nature, architecture, statues, etc.
Should your tattoo idea be outside of my wheelhouse I will be happy to recommend someone to you!

How much does Misty Locket charge per hour?

For all new clients that I haven’t tattooed or consulted with, my rate is $200 per hour of tattooing, that is time you are in the shop getting work done.

Every appointment requires a $200 non-refundable deposit at the time of the in-person consultation.

What type of payment do you take?

Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Cash. 💰

What are Misty's tattoo priorities?

1. Continuing tattoos that I already started.
2. Clients I’ve already consulted with in-person.
3. New tattoo ideas!

Will I see the tattoo design before my appointment?

The consultations are pretty thorough and should either of us have any additional questions prior to the tattoo date, we can communicate before then, usually via text.

I try to schedule only one large tattoo a day so that we have time for resizing, placing, and any minor changes on Photoshop or to the drawing that need to be made.

Should there be too many tattoo appointments for that day, we will either defer to your next tattoo appointment or reschedule for the near future.

Do you tattoo minors?

All clientele must be over the age of 18, no exceptions.
