James is Appointment only .


Shop minimum is $100 , hourly rate is $150 an hour for multisession pieces. Single session pieces are usually quoted by the piece.


A 100 dollar non-refundable deposit must be made for all appointments or to get on the wait list. The money will go towards the last session. If your tattoo is only one session then it will go towards that appointment. If its 9 sessions it will go towards the 9th. Your deposit will only be forfeited if one or more of the following occur.

– More than 6 months pass with out an appointment or communication

– Rescheduling an appointment more than twice

– Failure to appear for a scheduled appointment, without 48 hour notice.

This policy is meant to insure you are as dedicated to your tattoo as we are. If circumstances arise that are out of your control, please be call, text AND email to let me know whats going on.

No drawing will be done with out a deposit. Please be sure you know what you want. If I labor over a design based on our discussion and then you decide, instead of a pin up girl you want a tribal arm band, another deposit will need to be made. (please don’t ask for a tribal arm band).

My only rule is that it will look good in the years to come.  A lot of tattooers are  more interest in a a quick buck. That won’t happen at Monocle. I will choose not to make the money over giving you a tattoo that will look bad in a couple years.
