Describe your tattoo idea in full detail, and the location on your body where you would like the tattoo.
Email the images that you would like to use for reference. These images are important because they will allow Dmitry to properly visualize and design the tattoo.
Please also send a photo of the location on your body where you would like the tattoo done.
Note that we will not use or accept images of other tattoos as a reference image as Vytautas will not copy other artists designs.
It is important to make sure that the project is a good match for Vytautas before we can discuss available appointment dates and accept deposits.
At the beginning of consultation, we will discuss and finalize idea of your tattoo design. Vytautas will design a first draft with your direct input – we can brainstorm together and see if anything needs to be improved or added. This process usually takes around one hour.
For larger or more complex projects, we may need to spend 3 – 4 hours working on the ideas and tattoo placement.
Tattoo rate depends on location. Please enquire for the rate with the choosen location.
Vytautas average session is usually around 4-5 hours.
Larger projects such as full sleeves and back pieces may take 8 to 12 sessions, leg sleeves take even longer – 15-20 sessions, depending on variables such as skin type, the size and detail of the tattoo, and other factors not listed here. As this is an artistic project, there is no way to guarantee the exact amount of sessions a tattoo will take upfront – every project and person is unique.
Payments are due immediately at the end of each session.
Fleur Noire private studio in NYC accept cash only for guest artists. Cash is only payment method for NYC. For other locations please inquire.

The deposit serves to reserve all your booking dates and will be applied to the final tattoo session if the project requires multiple sessions. If it is a single session, it will be applied to that instead.
Once we agreed on all the details regarding your tattoo project we will send you the instructions on how to pay your deposit.
If you need to change the date of your appointment due to unforeseen circumstances, you must let us know at least 7 days prior to the session so we can rearrange our schedules. A new deposit will be required to continue working together if you cancel or reschedule with less than 7 days’ notice. You can reschedule your appointment only once without losing your deposit.
