Graphic Design pricing is calculated in a fixed base plus hourly rate quote plus rights fee. That is, all graphic designs have a base cost, then I calculate how many hours I think a design will take, and then we multiply that number by the hourly rate that accords with the amount of input you would like in the process and finally add in the appropriate rights fee, explained here

This process can have a variety of input levels from you (the client) and me (the artist), so please have a look through my FAQ to help decide how involved in the process you would like to be. 

You give me as much information and references as you like ; I go ahead and design the tattoo based on this information ; You receive the unwatermarked piece upon completion of payment.

If you have a rough idea of what you'd like and don't care about the details, you can go with the FACC option.

Example:

You give me as much information and references as you like ; I go ahead and sketch out a few options for you to choose between ; You select which sketch we redefine into details ; I redefine the sketch into a clean concept for final approval ; You point out any final changes/fixes and approve for completion ; I complete the piece (and at this point will only revise anything that was my mistake) ; You receive the unwatermarked piece upon completion of payment.


If you have a rough idea of what you'd like and want to see some options to decide what details you'd like, you can go with the HCC option.

Example:

 

You give me as much information and references as you can, all of the information, overload me ; I go ahead and sketch out a few options for you to choose between ; You select which sketch we redefine into details ; I redefine the sketch into a clean concept ; You let me know of any fixes/changes ; I complete those fixes/changes and progress forward with the design ; We rinse and repeat the two previous steps until we are both satisfied ; I complete the piece ; You receive the unwatermarked piece upon completion of payment.

If you have an exact idea of what you'd like and want to make sure the tattoo comes out perfect, you can go with the FCCC option. 

Example:

Total Graphic Design Cost = base price + [ (appropriate hourly rate) x quoted hours ]  + appropriate rights fee

This pay structure means that you can always inquire about your ideas and get an exact price for the project, allowing you to plan out and potentially save up for your next design. So please, always inquire and get a quote for your project so you can decide whether it is within your budget.


Fill out the form below to send me a graphic design inquiry

Filling out the form below is simply an inquiry and holds no obligation to purchase until such time that we agree to go through with the project.

Once we agree to go through with the project and I confirm that I have time to take your order, I will send you a Paypal request for half* of the agreed upon total payment (which is the initial deposit*) to the email you provide in the form. As soon as the initial deposit comes through I will be able to get to work!
Once the final watermarked version is approved I will send a Paypal request for the rest of the payment. Only upon completion of payment in full, I will send you the unwatermarked, higher-resolution version. 
*Initial deposit and payment plans may be negotiated for projects larger than $100, on a case-by-case basis.
**Initial deposits are non-refundable.

By commissioning me, you agree to my terms of service listed above and within my FAQ.
