To start the process you must first READ THIS PAGE IN IT'S ENTIRETY, and submit your idea via the Booking with Halo submission form on the next page. Please be thorough when describing your ideas. Note, Halo's books are currently closed so you are not able to submit an idea at this time.
Halo will then review the requests that he receives and determine based on your email which projects he is interested in taking on. Due to the overwhelming amount of requests that Halo receives, there is no way for him to be able respond to every request nor to take on every project that is presented to him. In order to continue the growth and evolution of his art, he is looking for projects that spark immediate interest and inspiration. If your idea triggers his interest, we will call you to gather more information about your idea.
Yes. Halo normally takes on a project with fewer restrictions on design and body placement before he chooses something that has very set in stone parameters. Bringing him a great idea will get you noticed quicker than things that must be done a certain way in the tattoo. Larger themed projects and tattoos on clean skin normally receive scheduling priority. Lastly, Halo is looking for clients that are dedicated enough to put forth the time and financial investment that is necessary for them to receive the best possible tattoo.
Pricing may vary depending on the project. The majority of projects that he takes on are tattoos that cannot be finished in one session.

PLEASE NOTE: As much as Halo would love to tattoo each and every person, with the number of submissions received, and current works in progress he is unable to tattoo everyone. Filling out a tattoo request submission form does NOT guarantee you will be tattooed by Halo. He has hand selected a team of the highest quality tattoo artists to assist in the wide range of tattoo styles he may not be able to accommodate.
