CAPTAIN SHADE TATTOOS
By Taylor Shade
Riot Ink | Powell, Ohio
I'm a fine line, micro realism tattoo artist located at Riot Ink Powell in Columbus, OH.
Thank you for your interest in my work! Please read below for information on how to book with me, and the FAQ for additional information.
Due to my limited availability and high volume of requests, I have a quarterly wait list that I use to book my appointments. I book my appointments a month to two months out by email. Please follow my Instagram page @captainshade.tt for updates on when my waitlist opens up.
My rate is $175 per hour with a minimum of $250. (Ex. if your tattoo takes under an hour, it will be $250, but if it takes 2 hours, it's $350). I charge $20 to be placed on the waitlist, and another fee (depending on the design) for a booking fee. Each fee will be deducted from the final cost of the tattoo and each are non-refundable.
To make a request:
My waitlist remains closed other than a few times a year, which I will post information and dates on IG. When my waitlist opens once a quarter, you will visit Riot Ink's website to make an official request when my waitlist opens up. Once selected, you will be prompted to make a payment. You will be added to the waitlist as soon as you have made a payment. You can follow my Instagram @captainshade.tt for last minute cancelations.
What will remain open:
I will continue to accept my available flash, which will be located in highlights on IG.
Additionally, I will accept 1-hour font-only appointments, you can drop requests here.
To book an appointment:
Once you have made it onto the waitlist, I will contact you via email to book an appointment a month or two out depending on the design. I try to accommodate your availability. I will email you a link and an estimated amount of time for you to book your appointment with Square Appointments. This will allow me to email multiple people, so appointments will be first come. If I have a cancelation, I will reach out to my waitlist first depending on length of appointment needing to be filled. I will only open up "walk-in" appointments to the public via IG for last minute cancelations and no-shows.
Reschedule and Cancelations:
If you need to reschedule, you may do so with at least 72 hours notice. You may reschedule once, otherwise you will need to pay an additional booking fee. For cancelations, you will just forfeit your waitlist and booking fees.
For COVID related cancelations, if you reschedule with less than 72 hour notice, you must provide a positive PCR test in order to keep your deposit and reschedule for a future appointment.
On the day of your appointment:
Our doors will open at 1pm. Please bring a valid government or state issues ID. If you have not shown within 20 minutes, you will be considered a no-show. All designs are shown on the day of your appointment. I have a policy where I do not send designs ahead of time. Please provide me with sufficient sample images through the booking website. I will ask for additional information or images if necessary. Please provide me with high quality images. For tattoos of your pet, please provide a minimum of 15 high quality photos for best results. Upon request, we can open a Dropbox shared folder for lots of photos. Any changes to your design must be submitted and approved by me at least a week before your appointment.
Please be well rested and have eaten a meal before your appointment.
