The Jade Mermaid is a quaint, solo studio. Most tattooing is done by appointment, and most appointments require a consultation and non-refundable deposit.  Email is by far the best way to reach me and to schedule time to discuss your ideas.  For larger projects, my calendar is usually booked 6 to 8 weeks out; for smaller pieces, I can usually find time within a couple of weeks.  My hourly rates and availability vary by project.  I tattoo 6-10 appointments a week, I am in the middle of dozens of large projects at any time, and I travel frequently.  That said, please be patient when contacting me--my workload can get pretty hectic.  However, I am as excited to tattoo as you are to be tattooed, so you will get a reply to all inquiries as soon as possible.  My wife, Jenna, helps with running the studio and with communication.  She will probably be your first contact and she will put you in touch with me, as necessary.  Clients that are traveling from outside of the Portland area can make arrangements through Jenna to schedule and consult via email or skype--remember to provide some lead time with your travel for me to plan and design your work.  When I am at the studio, I am usually tattooing or planning a new project.   But, when time permits, I am happy to cater to walk-in requests, or to just hangout for a game of pinball.  If you are in the neighborhood and the blinds are open, come on in.  If you want to be sure to catch me, it's best to call before dropping by:
