NYC books open for NOVEMBER-JANUARY.
pamela day is a filipina-american tattoo artist born and raised in nyc.
call me pam! i started tattooing in the beginning of january, 2022.not too long ago i overcame major existential depression, where i contemplated daily- "what was the point of everything?"neil degrasse tyson, an astrophysicist, said that he brings meaning to life by making someone else's a little better, even if it's just by greeting them with a smile. being able to make people happy with tattoos that i do- that means the world to me, and brings meaning to my life. :)prior to tattooing, i was a graphic design/graphic communication student at baruch college. i was a growth marketing design intern at hbo max, then an in-theatre marketing intern at paramount pictures. i dropped out of design and corporate for more creative freedom. i have a solid background in the performing arts, playing up to five different instruments. my fave anime is JJBA, i have a corgi named costco and an orange cat named mushy!
upcoming guest spots:seattle (wasabi tattoo) - february
books open in january.
my minimum is $200, no exceptions. my rates are $350/hr. i charge by the hour on bigger pieces and/or custom designs. flashes are determined by piece (such as amount of linework, black, color, and shading). prices are non-negotiable.
flashes are non-repeatable and are first come, first serve. custom designs will be chosen based on your ideas!
i do not do neck/hand/joint tattoos.there will be a deposit of $200-300. deposits are non-refundable, so please make sure you are 100% positive that you will book a tattoo with me. this deposit will go towards the final price of your tattoo. if you decide to reschedule, this deposit will go towards the future date.
if you are selected, i will email you and discuss with you the price range for your ideas/flash chosen. we will then proceed to the next steps in the booking process if you decide to move forward. deposits are made only after you are selected.please wait for up to 1-3 weeks for an email if you are selected. if you do not receive a response past 4 weeks, unfortunately you have not been selected for this booking period!for custom requests, i typically show clients their design the day before or the day of the tattoo. i do NOT show designs in advance. please do not ask for this. if there are any major drastic changes to the design the day of our appointment, i may ask to reschedule with you.if you're curious about my pricing, manga panels usually range from $500-1200 depending on the amount of detail. a full day session with me would be around $1500. flashes are generally cheaper than custom designs.
