These are my most frequently asked questions and answers.  If you have any additional questions please contact me here.

I charge $150/hour for larger tattoos such as sleeves and back pieces, etc. For small tattoos I’d be happy to price by the piece.  Cash only please.

All appointments require a nonrefundable $150 deposit to hold your date and time.  This is deducted from the price of your last session, and can be paid digitally using Venmo(Doug-Nedzesky), or Zelle. If you need to reschedule I ask that you notify me within 48 hours of your appointment, or your deposit will be forfeited.  

To book an appointment please fill out the booking form.  I take appointments four times a year: December 1st, March 1st, June 1st, and September 1st.  On those dates, I process the inquiries, and contact you.  At that point I will request a deposit, and I can provide you with some possible dates. About a week before your appointment, I will email you to confirm your date and time, and begin preparing your design.  I’ve been getting a massive amount of inquiries recently, so unfortunately I will not be able to take on all projects presented.  I do not provide designs in advance, and will only tattoo clients ages 18+.   

I tattoo out of a private studio called Salvare Tattoo in Aliquippa, PA.   It is located at 921 State Route 18  Aliquippa, PA 15001.  We tattoo by appointment only. 

An ID will be required on the day of your appointment.  I recommend that you do not come in on an empty stomach.  Feel free to bring snacks and a drink, a refrigerator will be available.  

I’m currently interested in custom black and gray designs that contain darker/aggressive elements.  I appreciate open minded clients who allow creative freedom in the design and application process.  


Unfortunately, I have a back injury limiting me from tattooing certain parts of the body such as the ribs, neck, stomach, and parts of the chest.

For larger pieces I’m happy to work up to 6 hours in a day.
