Studio Policies

Touch-Ups are not included in the initial cost and will be a separate fee that ranges depending on how long after the initial appointment they are booked.

A perfecting session must be booked no sooner than 6 weeks after your initial appointment. Your skin must be allowed the appropriate time to heal before any additional work can be done and I withhold the right to not work on clients who have yet to properly heal. Premature booking may result in the cancellation of your appointment and the forfeit of your deposit.

Perfecting sessions must be scheduled between 6-12 weeks after your initial appointment. After the 12-week mark, they will no longer be priced at the perfecting session price and will be priced as an annual refresh.

Annual Refresh sessions should be booked once the combined effects of your initial & perfecting session are 60-70% faded. This is to avoid over saturation, unnecessary skin trauma, and it allows us to maintain the most natural & hyper-realistic effect. While the timing of booking an annual refresh varies, most clients book within 12-18 months after their perfecting session or last annual refresh. 

After the 18-month mark, they will no longer be priced at the refresh session price and will be priced as an initial session.


If you have previously had cosmetic or restorative tattooing done by another artist it will automatically result in an up charge for corrective work. Clear photos must be emailed to and you must receive written booking pre-approval before booking an appointment.

A virtual or in-person consultation may be required to ensure I have a workable canvas. In some cases where the previous work is too dark/dense, discolored, or large, saline removal will be required before I begin the cover-up. Failure to provide photos of pre-existing work in order to receive booking pre-approval will result in the cancellation of your appointment and the forfeit of your deposit.


A "No-Show" is a client who does not show up for their scheduled appointment and does not send a written request for rescheduling or notice of cancellation via text or email within 48 hours of their appointment time. Failure to show up for a scheduled appointment without notice will be recorded as a "No-Show" in your client profile, and you will be blocked from booking with Inked by Denisse in the future.

In order to be respectful of the needs of other clients and my time as an artist I ask that if you need to cancel or reschedule your appointment you give a minimum of 48 hours notice. All notices must be emailed to or texted to (424) 209-9222. Clients who cancel a scheduled appointment will forfeit their non-refundable deposit and must pay a new deposit in order to book a new appointment. 

If you need to reschedule, a minimum of 48 hours notice is required to avoid forfeiting your deposit. If you are sick within the 48-hour period, please reschedule and provide a doctor’s note so that I can transfer your deposit. Clients are allowed up to two opportunities to reschedule with proper notice. Inked by Denisse reserves the right to refuse service if there are further cancellations or rescheduling.

Cancellations, No-Shows and tardiness in excess of 15 minutes will automatically result in a forfeit of your deposit, no exceptions.

No-Shows, cancellations & rescheduling

Clients must take full responsibility for researching their desired service, including its contraindications and pre- and post-care requirements. They should ensure they are booking the appropriate service for their desired results and lifestyle.

To secure your appointment at Inked by Denisse, a non-refundable booking deposit is required. The booking deposit not only indicates your commitment to your scheduled appointment but also guarantees your reserved time slot. The following guidelines apply depending on your chosen payment method:

* Payment Plan Option: If you opt to use one of the payment plan options, your first payment installment will be considered and treated as your booking deposit.
* Other Payment Methods: For clients not utilizing a payment plan, a booking deposit of 30% of the service's value will be collected at the time of booking. This deposit will be deducted from the total service cost, with the remaining balance due on the day of the appointment.

All payments, including booking deposits and payment plan installments, are non-transferable and non-refundable. Once a payment is made, it cannot be refunded under any circumstances.


Inked by Denisse does NOT issue refunds. ALL payments, including payment plan installments, booking deposits and tips, are non-refundable under any circumstances.


At Inked by Denisse, I strive to make the payment process convenient and transparent for all my valued clients. I accept the following payment methods for all booking deposits, remaining balance payments, and payments in full: Cash, Zelle, Venmo, CashApp, ApplePay, Debit, and Credit Cards. However, please note that for any remaining balance payments made with a debit or credit card, a 3% processing fee will be applied.

To further enhance accessibility, Inked by Denisse now offers convenient payment plan options for all services priced at $350 or more, made possible through our trusted third-party partners: Affirm, AfterPay, Cherry and Klarna. To book your appointment using a payment plan using one of our trusted partners please see instructions on the payment plans page here.

Please note that eligibility for these payment plans is determined solely by Affirm, AfterPay, Cherry and Klarna, respectively, as independent companies with their own criteria and guidelines. Inked by Denisse has no authority to approve or deny eligibility for these payment plans. My role is solely to provide the option to utilize these services as a convenience to my clients. For any inquiries or concerns regarding eligibility or approval status for these payment plans, please direct them directly to Affirm, AfterPay, Cherry and Klarna.

Accepted Payment Methods & Payment Plans

All clients must be respectful to any and all persons within the Inked by Denisse studio, common outdoor area and shared parking lot.

The following behaviors are strictly prohibited: physical violence, verbal abuse, harassment of any kind, intimidation tactics, making threats, malicious or harmful statements towards others, public disclosure of private information, possession of dangerous or unauthorized materials, solicitation, or distribution of illegal substances.

Code of Conduct

While I strive to provide optimal results for every client, it's important to note that final results may vary. Different skin types react differently to procedures, and individual lifestyle factors can also affect the outcome. Results are heavily influenced by how each individual heals and their adherence to the recommended aftercare.

A minimum of TWO sessions (initial & perfecting session) are required to achieve the best results. However, the number of sessions required may vary depending on your desired look.

Please note that all services provided are non-refundable. Before booking a service, please thoroughly read the technique and ideal candidate descriptions to ensure it's the right choice for you.


At Inked by Denisse, good vibes and gorgeous results are always plentiful! The Studio Policies are in place to ensure that everyone is aware of the rules and code of conduct. It's important to carefully read and understand this page, as the policies are strictly enforced. By booking an appointment, you certify that you have read and agree to all of our Studio Policies.
