Appointment Inquiry & Request with Awen

Dear potential client,

Thank you for your interest in my work! I know you may have a quick question, or are wondering about pricing and availability –  I will be able to provide you more accurate and complete information when you fill in the form below. I understand it takes time to complete this form, and it requires time to answer your questions and create your tattoo, so it is worth the effort for all of us.

Please be aware that I live in Ely, MN, in the Northwoods, within Superior National Forest.

I select pieces based on 3 factors that energize Creativity:
  • Concepts that peak my Creative Interest
  • The Positive Energy of the Client
  • An openness to the Creative Process.

I only tattoo my own artwork and creations. I welcome inspiration and ideas, without copying the works of others.

I handle communication personally; due to the number of inquiries received, I’m unable to respond to all requests. If you don’t hear back from me it may be that while your piece indeed peaks my creative interest, devoting the time needed for each tattoo limits the number of new pieces I’m able to commit to each year. Submitting an inquiry does not hold a place on a wait list; if you don’t hear back from me please continue your search for the right artist. Inquiries are kept on file and I reach out to book new pieces as I complete current pieces in progress.

I work primarily from my private home studio in Ely, MN – a beautiful and easy four hour drive north of the Twin Cities in Superior National Forest. The view from the tattoo chair includes pine, birch and aspen forest, the call of ravens, visiting hummingbirds, snowshoe hare, deer and other wildlife that cohabitate with us on this land we steward. I travel to offer a limited number of appointments at our Minneapolis studio. The timeframe for an appointment with me in Minneapolis is 12 – 18 months while bookings in Ely are generally available within 3-6 months. Again, thank you for your interest in my work.
