How can I get a tattoo from Wayne?
How do I get tattooed by Wayne?
To start the process you must first go to Wayne's Email (w.lessard43@gmail), and submit your idea. Please be very thorough when describing your ideas, body placement, size and as much reference as you have. Wayne makes all of his own appointments and you will be directly contacted by him.
What happens next?
Wayne will then review the requests that he receives and determine based on your email which projects he is interested in taking on. Due to the overwhelming amount of requests that Wayne receives, there is no way for him to respond to every request nor to take on every project that is presented to him. In order to continue the growth and evolution of his art, he is looking for projects that spark immediate interest and inspiration.
Is there a way to increase my chances of being tattooed by Wayne?
Yes. Wayne normally takes on a project with fewer restrictions on design and body placement before he chooses something that has very set in stone parameters. Bringing him a great idea will get you noticed quicker than things that must be done a certain way in the tattoo. Larger themed projects and tattoos on clean skin normally receive scheduling priority. Lastly, Wayne is looking for clients that are dedicated enough to put forth the time and financial investment that is necessary for them to receive the best possible tattoo.
What if Wayne chooses not to take on my project?
BODYTECH has some amazing artists that may be better suited to take on your project. You can view the portfolios of his coworkers at bodytechtattoo.com. If Wayne thinks the project is better suited for someone he knows, he may respond to your email with a referral of an artist that would better be suited for the project requested.
How much does Wayne charge?
Pricing varies depending on the project. The majority of projects that he takes on are tattoos that cannot be finished in one session. To schedule a project, you must be able to come to Gainesville and have a full day appointment. If you fail to book monthly, your deposit will forfeited and a new deposit would be required to schedule the next session. Appointments booked after a lapse in monthly visits may also result in a raise in daily rate. Exemptions may apply in times of serious illness or pregnancy.
How much of a deposit does Wayne require?
Deposits vary depending on the tattoo. Deposits are nonrefundable and will be deducted from the last session of your tattoo.
Are there any styles of tattoo that Wayne won’t do?
Please review Wayne's portfolio before submitting a request for a tattoo. Wayne takes on projects for Color and Black and Grey illustrative tattoos. He does not add lettering to designs.
Wayne does not do drawings for clients that will not be getting tattooed by him. If you admire his work, please be respectful enough to ask him to tattoo you instead of asking for him to do a drawing for you to take elsewhere.
All drawings will be done for the day of appointment or drawn directly on the skin and will be available for viewing before your scheduled appointment date as long as you have left a deposit.
