MY NAME IS
ELENA ESPERANZA
AND I WANT TO
TATTOO YOU

Thank you so much for visiting my website to check out my work and for your interest in potentially working with me.  I have been an artist my entire life, and a professional tattoo artist for about five years.

Below is a list of commonly asked questions that should help you with information regarding the process of receiving a tattoo. 


HOW DO I BOOK AN APPOINTMENT?

The best way to contact me for an appointment is to fill out the information needed in the "Contact" tab. There it asks for a "Message" and you may provide me with a detailed description of what you would like done. 

WHAT HAPPENS NEXT?

I schedule tattoo appointments based on submissions. This means that when I am able to accept new projects, I will review the tattoo requests and the "Message" details provided. Most projects will require an in person consultation to verify such things as size, detail, color, etc. Due to the amount of requests I receive, and ongoing projects I am currently working on, I may not be able to respond to every request promptly. Also, this means I cannot always take on every project that is sent my way.  Creating custom designs are very important to me.  I'm looking for projects that will help me grow as an individual artist and expand my portfolio. 

HOW MUCH DO YOU CHARGE?

This is the most commonly asked question!  

It is totally understandable when budgeting comes into play when investing in something, but it's important to remember that tattooing is a permanent investment for you.  If you have a budget, it is definitely something I'm willing to work with and we can discuss it before your tattoo session. 

I have accounted for the average pricing in this area and have come up with a rate that is both fair and competitive, while not undervaluing the integrity of my work.

My rates are as follows:

  • Shop Minimum $100

  • $120/hr

  • Half Day: $440

  • Full Day: $800

  • If your piece is going to be less than a half day session, I may flat rate price it at our consultation.

Some pieces I schedule cannot be finished in one session.  If this is the case, I ask that you book a half day with me once a month.  If you fail to make two of your monthly appointments, your deposit will be forfeited and a new deposit will be required to schedule.  Appointments that are booked after a lapse of several months may be subjected to an increased rate. 

HOW MUCH IS A DEPOSIT?

Deposits will vary depending on the project and sessions, but every tattoo requires a deposit to book. Deposits are due within 48 hours of scheduling either via Venmo or cash/card in person.  Smaller pieces typically are a $100 deposit and larger scale pieces (sleeves, chests, backs, etc.) are $150. All deposits are NON-REFUNDABLE and are deducted at the time of the final tattoo session. 

HOURS AND LOCATION

I am based in the Inland Empire. 

I am available to schedule appointments or consultations Tuesday thru Saturday.
I am located at:
912 North Central Ave.
Upland, CA 91786

I currently tattoo Tuesday thru Saturday by appointment 12-8pm. However, may take walk ins due to any late cancellations or reschedules. Hours are subject to change during holiday seasons as well. 

DRAWING INFO

Customized drawings, painting, and other projects are priced according to size, detail, color, detail & urgency. 

If you would like to purchase artwork, check out the "Shop" tab (coming soon!) or we have a selection of paintings & prints available at the shop. 

Tattoo drawings for clients with appointments are typically done the day of our appointment, or sometimes 1-2 days in advance.  I do not do fully rendered color drawings.  If there is a draft of your drawing available sometimes I will post photos on Instagram, otherwise drawings are not usually available for viewing before your scheduled appointment date. 


Again, thank you so much to everyone for all your love and support! 
I am beyond grateful for you guys!
