Appointments with James Kern

Hello everyone!

I am currently taking new projects!

In order to maximize time devoted to creating art and serving my clients I am switching to a new system for new projects. I hope this will streamline the process and make sure that nobody gets left behind or lost in the process. I will be taking new project requests every 2-3 months on specific dates, and only those dates. I can only tattoo so many projects, so I will be limiting the number of new projects to 15-20 each time I take on new requests.

I understand that some of you may have emailed before, and I would like to ask that you submit again on the date mentioned. That way I will know that you are still interested in getting tattooed! I am trying to streamline, so going through old emails would be inefficient.

I am excited for all types of projects, and if I feel that I am not right for your project I will try to point you in the direction of someone who is. I want everyone to get the best art that they can!

I do not keep a waitlist, so please be ready with your ideas and be mentally (and financially) ready to start the project when you submit. I work primarily weekday afternoons (roughly noon-6pm) and one weekend day per week. I charge by the hour and have a 3 hour session minimum. If you are only available evenings or on weekends, it may not be possible to do your project. Please keep that in mind before submitting your request.

I am excited to create an amazing piece of art with you!
