Before you reach out...

It's important to carefully read the information below. This way, you'll know exactly what to expect, and we can serve you better.

The appointment.

  • Describe your tattoo idea clearly and indicate where on your body you want to have the tattoo.
  • Attach images that you want to use as a reference. These images are important because they enable Remco to visualize and design the tattoo properly.
  • Also, include a photo of the area on your body where you want the tattoo.
  • Please note that we do not accept images of other tattoos as references because Remco will not copy designs from other artists.
  • It is important to ensure that the project is a good fit for Remco before we can discuss available appointment dates and accept deposits.

The design.

  • At the beginning of your first appointment, we will discuss and finalize your tattoo design. Designs are not prepared in advance of the session. I will create an initial design with your direct input. We can brainstorm together and see if anything needs to be improved or added. This process typically takes one to two hours and is part of the session time. The same rates as for tattooing apply to designing.

Session & Cost.

  • A session usually lasts six to eight hours. If your tattoo is not finished by then, we will schedule follow-up sessions immediately to complete your tattoo as soon as possible.
  • The daily rate is currently €950.
  • For smaller tattoos, a rate of €150 per hour is charged.
  • Please note that we usually raise prices once a year.
  • Since all tattoo projects are different, they require different amounts of time and effort to complete. Please send us all the information and photos by email, and we will get back to you with estimated costs.

Tattoo styles

  • Remco has limited availability and therefore prioritizes projects that fall within his area of interest. He only tattoos in a realistic style, both in black and white and in color. Portraits, animals, film and TV show themes, religious statues, and cultural tattoos are his favorite designs.


  • To promote the best healing of your tattoo, we recommend moisturizing the skin on the planned tattoo area twice a day with a hydrating body lotion for three weeks prior to the session.
  • Please refrain from drinking alcohol a few days before your session – this can lead to excessive bleeding during the session and cause problems with the healing process.
  • Make sure you are well-rested before coming to the appointment and eat a meal beforehand to prevent low blood sugar issues.
  • Ensure that your body is well-rested by avoiding exercise two days before the appointment.
  • Bring healthy food and drinks with you so that you have enough energy throughout the day.

Cancel or Reschedule

  • To secure your appointment, we require a deposit of 400 euros.
  • If you wish to cancel or reschedule your appointment, you must do so at least 7 days in advance. Otherwise, your deposit expires.
