Kevin Harper graduated from the Ontario College of Art and Design and Sheridan College and has been tattooing for over ten years now. He works in a variety of artistic styles to develop custom tattoos, including traditional, black and grey, japanese and low brow art.

Kevin charges by the hour for large custom work and prices smaller pieces individually. His hourly rate is $140 with a minimum charge of $80.

Developing your custom tattoo

To develop custom tattoos, Kevin starts with a consultation. During the consultation, he would look at any reference materials you might have and discuss the idea for the tattoo with you. The more information you can give him the better he'll understand what you're looking to get. The consultation also provides an opportunity to discuss size, location and more importantly approximate cost.

Please don't give a reference of some other person's tattoo and say you want the exact same tattoo. Kevin is an artist and respects other tattooists' work, plus it defeats the purpose of getting a custom tattoo. After the consultation, a sketch is prepared and you are given the opportunity to make any changes before your appointment.

Booking your appointment

At the end of your consultation, we would book your appointment. A $80 cash deposit is required at this time. If you contact Kevin through email or phone, you can make a deposit with PayPal. This deposit is non-refundable, non-transferrable, but will be put toward the total cost of your tattoo.

Please note that deposits will be forfeit if you are more than 15 mins late without notice or if your appointment is cancelled with less than 24 hours notice. Please understand that missed appointments mean a loss of income. A lot of work goes into preparing for an appointment and Kevin doesn't like to work for free.
