With 20 years in the tattoo industry, The Wedding Tattooer will deliver a top-notch professional experience your guests will cherish forever.
After spending years dedicating my career becoming fluent in all styles of tattoo, I decided to share this timeless tradition with couples and their closest loved ones, thus The Wedding Tattooer was born! As an artist I like to have a wide palette of styles to pull inspiration from, allowing me to create wedding tattoo keepsakes to suit all tastes, and it's here I find beauty in simple elegance. I feel tattoos symbolize a moment in time, and I strive to capture just that on the day you choose LOVE!
When planning your wedding tattoo experience, you'll start by clicking the Booking Inquiries button, You'll enter a few bits of information about your occasion so I can get an idea of how you're looking to celebrate and also check my availability. We'll go over your ideas and once your date is secure with a 50% retainer deposit, I'll create a tattoo menu consisting of 6 designs for your guests to choose from, incorporating your theme, flowers or any other elements, blending seamlessly the love you two share.. Be sure to check out my Tattoo Menu gallery, you'll be able to get a feel for what a menu looks like and what I can offer to guests. I offer a variety of flexible packages ranging from $200.00 to $3,000.00, it just depends on how long you want to rock out! As always, I extend the same cutting edge industry standards from my studio to your event, making sure to deliver a clean and sterile procedure for every guest, while also making the tattoo a fun and memorable experience for everyone!
Every event is unique as the families joining together on your special day, and I would be honored to share it with you. Your occasion can be classic, eclectic, or anything in between, our experience and attention to the smallest of details will ensure your guests will fondly remember the day you said "I do". At the heart of every great occasion is a warm, positive vibe felt by everyone involved, where guests feel comfortable to relax, be themselves, and get to know each other. When you reveal to your guests they'll be able to receive a tattoo at your wedding reception, bachelor/bachelorette party or any other special occasion, it will create a buzz unlike any other and join everyone in celebration. A happily married man myself, I'm no stranger to the hectic pace of "The Big Day", so relax! You and your guests are in good hands! We've got you covered!
Frequently Asked Questions
Q. I love what you do, and I must have the Wedding Tattooer as entertainment for my big event. How do I book your amazing services?
A. A 50% retainer deposit using your debit/credit card through our secure Paypal account gets your occasion locked into our books. The remaining 50% is payable in smaller monthly increments to be paid in full 30 days prior to your date. Real easy peasy stuff!
Q. I see you can travel anywhere in the world. How do I get you to my event?
A. Whether I’m traveling by plane or hittin’ the road, I can efficiently and safely transport everything I need to provide a 100% professional and sterile experience for you and your guests. If I’m flying to your event, I handle the flight arrangements myself and I send you the invoice to cover it. Don't worry, I fly as inexpensive as possible! I come in the day before, wake up and rock out your event, and fly home the following day. A tip for keeping the airfare expense to a minimum is to ask your friends and family for anyone hanging onto frequent flier miles or discount coupons. When driving to your event, travel expenses include gas and tolls. In addition, I will need a place to stay. I’m flexible about this and don’t require much.
*Please note the following states I drive to: PA, NJ, NY, MD, DE, CT, MA, ME, VT, VA, DC, WV, RI. All other states I fly out of Philadelphia International Airport.
Q. What do you exactly tattoo on my guests?
A. I will create a custom Tattoo Menu with 4-6 selections for your guests to choose from, based off of the concepts we come up with together. Send me as much reference as you can find (Pinterest, Google, scribbles, etc.), then we’ll chat on the phone about the top 4-6 designs and polish them up into perfect tattoo wedding keepsakes. I like to provide choices and styles on our menu that will appeal to all tastes, ensuring there’s a little somethin’ for everyone!
Q. We want to exchange larger, more involved tattoos as wedding gifts to each other. Can we book you for tattoo sessions like this?
A. Absolutely! I’d love to give you both longer sessions for tattoo wedding gifts to each other, in any style you choose! I like to incorporate elements special to the both of you, in any style of tattooing your personal tastes go for! One element I like using is the flowers from your bouquet and boutonnière. I can use your floral arrangements and colors in your tattoo concepts, keeping your wedding day memories as fresh as the day you said I Do! I can either tattoo you both the day before your event, or the day after in a more relaxed, casual atmosphere. That way we can spend more time on your larger tattoo keepsakes, chill, and have fun! If you’re already married and wish to commemorate your nuptials with a one-of-a-kind Wedding Tattooer piece, I can be there for you too! If you like to travel, you can book me at my studio and receive the ultimate “sticker on your suitcase”!
Q. My guests will be partying, it is a wedding after all. Will they be able to be tattooed?
A. We ask any guests wishing to participate, do so in a responsible manner. If you appear visibly intoxicated, I will not tattoo you. I extend the same policy I have at the studio to Wedding Tattooer events, which is “Don’t be a horse’s ass”. Party responsibly and be respectful.
Q. Do you offer discounts?
A. Sure do! Any couple who is currently serving or previously served in any branch of military, fire persons, and police officers. You’re the real heroes and I help you out as much as I can.
Q. Are you insured?
A. Always! We provide our insurance binder for any venue that requests it. Every guest who participates also fills out a waiver of liability in the same way you would in my professional tattoo studio.
Q. I would like to book you for an event other than a wedding reception. What other types of events are you available for?
A. Any event I can set my mobile Tattoo Bar up indoors with a modern electric source! The Wedding Tattooer is good clean fun for themed events (Think Star Wars, Alice In Wonderland, themes like that!), office parties, bachelorette parties, or any other gathering of cool, likeminded folk who want to get down! Send me your ideas, I’m sure I’ll be into it!
Q. Are guests going to be running around my reception with open tattoos bleeding all over the place?
A. Nooooooooo, every tattoo will be bandaged properly, and guests will be given healing instructions with lotion. I understand many guests who participate might not be super familiar with the proper healing of a tattoo, and I especially make sure those guests are informed of the proper do’s and don’ts. I also pay strict attention to cross contamination precautions and my formula ensures every guest leaves your event with a good clean tattoo keepsake.
