The Ink Gallery Tattoo

FAQ

WHERE ARE YOU LOCATED?

 

OUR STUDIO IS A PRIVATE SPACE LOCATED IN DOWNTOWN BORDEAUX, IN THE SOUTH WEST OF FRANCE. IN ORDER TO KEEP PRIVACY FOR INDIVIDUAL CLIENTS, OUR LOCATION AS WELL AS ALL SPECIFIC INFORMATION WILL ONLY BE GIVEN ONCE THE BOOKING PROCESS IS COMPLETED.

 

 

 

HOW IS PRICING DONE AND HOW CAN I GET A QUOTE IF I KNOW WHAT I WANT?

 

PRICING IS CHARGED BY THE PIECE, NOT THE HOUR, AND BECAUSE EVERY TATTOO IS UNIQUE AND DIFFERENT, PRICING VARIES UPON THE DENSITY OF EACH PIECE. LIL B’S DAILY RATE IS 3,000€ (EURO). SOME PIECES CAN BE DONE IN ONE DAY BUT BIGGER SCALE PROJECTS REQUIRE SEVERAL SESSIONS TO BE COMPLETED. HOWEVER, WHEN A CLIENT COMMITS IN SECURING AN APPOINTMENT, A QUOTE CAN BE STATED ACCORDING TO THAT CLIENT’S SPECIFIC PROJECT.

NOTE THAT LILB DOES NOT GIVE QUOTES VIA EMAIL. A PHONE OR SKYPE CONSULTATION WITH LILB IS REQUIRED PRIOR ANY TATTOO SESSION IN ORDER FOR YOU TO GET AN ACCURATE ESTIMATE OF THE FINAL COST OF WORK. A 500€ DEPOSIT IS REQUIRED IN ORDER TO SECURE YOUR CONSULTATION WITH LIL B.

 

 

 

WHY DO I HAVE TO SEND A DEPOSIT TO GET A CONSULTATION AND IS MY DEPOSIT REFUNDABLE?

 

A DEPOSIT IS NEEDED PRIOR TO THE PHONE CONSULTATION AS A PROOF OF SERIOUSNESS. ALL DEPOSITS ARE FINAL, AND MAY BE REFUNDED SHOULD BOTH PARTIES END UP POST CONSULTATION DECIDING THE DESIRED PIECE/PROJECT IS NOT A GOOD FIT FOR LILB. HOWEVER IF BOTH PARTIES AGREE UPON A PROJECT THE DEPOSIT WILL THEN GO TOWARDS THE FINAL COST OF WORK.

 

 

 

HOW CAN I BOOK LILB IN AN OTHER CONTRY AND HOW CAN I KNOW ABOUT HIS TOURING SCHEDULE?

 

LILB AND HIS TEAM “THE SHOW” VISIT VARIOUS PARTS OF THE WORLD AND SPEND APPROXIMATELY HALF OF THE YEAR TOURING. THESE VISITS ARE ORGANIZED TO WORK PRIVATELY FOR CLIENTS. TO FIND OUT ABOUT DETAILS CHECK OUT THE “TOUR DATES” SECTION OF THE WEBSITE.  TO BOOK LIL B DURING ONE OF HIS TOURS FOLLOW THE REGULAR BOOKING PROCESS AND MENTION THE COUNTRY WHERE YOU WOULD LIKE TO BOOK HIM. TOURING SESSIONS ARE VERY LIMITED AND DUE TO THE HIGH VOLUME OF SUBMISSIONS, ONLY A FEW PROJECTS ARE SELECTED PER STOPS. 

 

 

 

I HAVE THE IDEAS AND I KNOW WHAT I WANT IT TO MEAN BUT I CAN’T VISUALIZE A DESIGN TO REPRESENT IT, CAN YOU HELP ME?

 

YES.  AS LONG AS YOU HAVE THE IDEAS IN TERMS OF MEANING, LILB WILL CREATE THE IMAGERY AROUND IT. THE MORE CLARITY YOU HAVE ABOUT THE IDEAS AND THE PURPOSE OF YOUR PROJECT THE EASIER AND THE MORE NATURAL THE DESIGN/LAYOUT OF YOUR ART WILL COME ALONG. COLLABORATING IS ONE OF THE CORE ELEMENTS OF BUILDING A SOLID AND COHESIVE PROJECT. LILB WILL BE AS EXCITED TO HEAR YOUR IDEAS AS YOU WILL BE TO DISCOVER WHAT HE COMES UP WITH.

 

 

 

HOW LONG IS A REGULAR TATTOO SESSION?

 

A REGULAR TATTOO SESSION STARTS AT 9AM AND USUALY FINISHES AROUND 6-7PM. DURING THIS TIME FRAME YOU WILL BE ABLE TO TAKE SEVERAL BREAKS, MEALS AND ADDITIONAL PAUSES. NOTE THAT LILB DOES NOT FOCUS ON THE QUANTITY BUT ON THE QUALITY OF THE WORK PRODUCED DURING THE SESSION.
