Booking

Normally, I book 3 months in advance. But booking updates can vary. See latest booking update HERE.

If you want to book an appointment with me, you will need to register to the Waitlist.

Absolutely! Up until 48 hours before your appointment, you can move or cancel it. You just call the shop at +4722201313. But remember to do so, because if you forget to move or cancel the appointment, I will send you an invoice.

No. Should you not show up for a tattoo session, I will send you an invoice. I will charge you 1000,- per hour. Full price if you booked a Portrait.

I accept Norwegian Debet Cards, which is preferred. Otherwise I can also accept Vipps or Cash.

A tattoo consultation is a talk in the studio with a tattoo artist, planning the next tattoo.

There are several ways to prepare for a tattoo session. I have written a blog post about it HERE.

Pregnancy, Breastfeeding, Stretchmarks

There is no clear documented answer to whether it is completely safe or not, but I explain all the risks in this BLOG POST and in this VIDEO.

Travels & Events

I haven’t been traveling anything lately because of my own health and family. But I love the States, and hope I will be able to travel there again in the future.

Becoming a Tattoo Artist

Long story short, first of all, you need to work on having a solid portfolio that shows that you have a talent for drawing. Dont think too much on what is expected, consentrate on drawing what you love to draw. Like in any business, niches are totally fine. So dont try to be «Tattoo artist apprentice material», just be you. My saying is «You cant tattoo what you cant draw». When you have a portfolio that you are proud of, you can start contacting the studio you want to work at. Do some research on studios in your area, check them out and follow your heart and gut. I made a VIDEO.

      Hi Katelyn. That is a very good, and frequently asked question. Long story short, first of all, you need to work on having a solid portfolio that shows that you have a talent for drawing.

When you have a portfolio that you are proud of, you can start contacting the studio you want to work at. Do some research on studios in your area, check them out and follow your heart and gut. I made a video on how to become a tattoo artist, but I might do a new one soon, a bit more explained.

    Hey, so I have started watching your YouTube videos and looking at your artwork and I was just wondering if you ever travel to conventions, specifically travel to the United States?

      Thanks for the question, Courteney. I haven’t been traveling anything lately because of health and family. But I love the States, and hope I will be able to travel there again in the future.

    How do u know if u have went to deep giving a tattoo? My bf Is heavy handed and let’s just say it’s murder lol. But he don’t have much feelings in his fingers and hands. So I’m try I g to figure it a good way for him to do the tatts with out so much pain given brides the norm. I haven’t even told him he is yet.

    • electriclinda

      If the tattoo heals slower than normal, and get a scar tissue, so that you can feel the shape of tattoo with your fingers, like bumps, it is often because of tattooing too deep. Every tattoo artist needs to know this. Tell him how you feel, I would 🙂

    Is numbing cream safe to put on neck/throat if so which one would be the best one to use?

    After emailing an artist about setting up an appointment and they haven’t responded in awhile, when’s a good time frame to bump the email

    • electriclinda

      Good question. Tattoo Artists are often typical creative artists, and maybe not the most professional in administration. I would say, if you havnt got a reply after 3-4 days, or even a week, bump the email. Or, contact the studio they work in. At our shop ALL bookings go through the shop website, so the artists can focus on tattooing. Good luck!

    Hi, I recently started looking into artist in my area for a Photo realism piece. I’m finding amazing artistic talent, but poor personality behind the artist.
    My main issue is I am disabled and have a service dog to assist me with daily things such as retrieving dropped items when my arms go numb, alerting to heart rate changes, and emergemcy medicine retrievals.
    As soon as i mention that is have to bring her I get short rude responses and have even been cussed out and hung up on by one shop. At this point I’ve nearly given up finding a artist that can work with me, I can’t leave her home without risking a medical incident.

      That is horrible! They shouldn´t treat you that way! I know that most tattoo shops won´t allow dogs, or any animals inside. We are also very strict on the subject. BUT that is no reason to treat you badly. Could you maybe ask a friend or family member help you instead of the dog for just that time you are getting tattooed? If so, it could help you a lot. If not, just keep asking around. I truly hope you will find your tattoo artist! Good luck!

    Is it rude to ask an artist to see photo(s) of their work that’s not freshly done, but a couple of years old? Or is there another way to find out how tattoos done by a certain artist age? I haven’t had my first tattoo yet (currently doing research – and I’m taking it very seriously lol) and I don’t plan on having many of them, so I really want to make sure that I’ll choose an artist whose work will look awesome even after 10 or 20 years. I’m aware aging depends on different factors and I’m taking them into consideration, but I just don’t want to pay a lot of money and have my tattoo completely faded after 2 years because it wasn’t done well enough :/

    • electriclinda

      To see healed photos from tattoo artists is very rare, and there are many reasons for that. First of all, it is extremely rare that a client comes back several years later to show a healed tattoo. Secondly, many tattoo artists havn´t been artists for more than a few years, so they don´t actually know how their work will look like after 20 years. I don´t think it´s rude to ask to see photos. It´s just that they probobaly don´t have any. Another thing to consider is that even if you were to see a couple of “old” tattoos from an artist, they could have healed completely different. The skin and health of the client, the first aftercare, and the total aftercare several years later. They all make differences, and all tattoos fade a bit over time. AND remember that tattoo artists learn new things every day. So if you find someone who wears an old tattoo from your favorite artist, and it looks bad, remember that the artist had less experience back then. I hope I answered your question. Good luck!

  8. Hi Linda, Thanks for your great content.

    I have the following question and I think you could give some useful advise…

    I have 6 tattoos in total, both forearms, both ribs, spine and finger. All are as they should be.

    Im getting a chest piece next week. There, I have a keloid scar (over 3 years old) about the size of a bean. According to my research, it shouldn’t be a problem to go over.
    My question is, is there a chance my whole chest will become a keloid because of the tattoo process. I read that the chest is a place that is susceptible to keloids. This is worrying me because I got my current scar from picking an ingrown hair slightly too much, wont the tattoo process even more harsh than that? I guess there is no real way of knowing, but your opinion would help.

    Thanks in advance 🙂
