My name's Damon Holleis, I am 23 years old and have been tattooing for nearly 4 years.
I live in Sydney, Australia with my fiancé and work in the private studio ATLNTS located in the Sutherland Shire.
My website is run by my assistant Ness, she does all of my bookings and organising for me.
Please be specific when making enquiries as it's not me who you'll be initially speaking with!
He is usually booked out between 3 and 6 months at any given time, at the moment his books are closed and full until November 2018.
Damon's books open periodically, when his books are open it will be advertised on his social media and you will be able to make a booking, at the moment his books are closed, due to re open at the start of April 2018 through the "Book in" section of this website, to get an email notification and priority booking you can add yourself to the mailing list at the bottom of this page.
Damon's day rate is $1300 for approximately 8 hours, anything from the 6 hour mark and under will be charged a half day rate which is $1000.
Damon works in a private studio called ATLNTS which is located in the Sutherland Shire, Sydney. Address will be provided upon payment of a deposit.
A deposit is $200 paid via bank transfer only, this must be paid within 24 hours of appointment offer being sent otherwise your appointment will be cancelled, it is non refundable or date transferrable but comes off the total price of the tattoo on the day.
You can make a booking by filling out the form on the "book in" page while the books are open.
Yes, there are some themes and elements Damon won't take on anymore which include but are not limited to American Indian, Chicano,, Family Portraits, Clocks and Religious.
He only takes on realistic tattoos also.
We strongly suggest that you come alone to your appointment only because it is a private studio and it is quite small but if you feel uncomfortable with that it is completely fine to bring one support person along with you.
Damon will usually design your tattoo between a week and the day before your appointment, you will receive it via email or text message before your appointment.
Yes, please write exactly what you are planning on having done whenever making an enquiry. Damon is booked out for quite some time so the better the description you give me the easier it will be for Damon to design your tattoo coming up to your appointment as he can read over your enquiry to refresh him memory before designing your piece.
Please note "Finishing my sleeve" is not a good description when making an enquiry.
Change of mind is usually up to Damon's discretion, there are a lot of themes and elements (including but not limited to above) that Damon will no longer take on, for this reason he can be quite particular about what he initially books in, as you are approved for the idea you send through with your initial enquiry. As long as the piece you change your mind to is something Damon would have said yes to taking on when making your initial booking that is fine.
