Yes, it does take some time to get in, but we believe anything that is precious, requires time and thought.” :)

At Studio Palermo, we do custom tattoo designs, so each one requires our evaluation from start to finish. This means that we do not offer walk-in service.

If you want to set up an appointment for a consultation, please send your idea in by post; and then we will call you after we review it.


Contact details: telephone number, name, address, email address.
Size: What is the size of the tattoo (i.e. the height in cm)?
Placement: Indicate where you want the tattoo placed (i.e. Upper arm? Wrist? Ankle?).
Description: Provide us a clear description of your tattoo design.
References: Include pictures, inspiration, and theme.
Style: Indicate the style you prefer (i.e. lines, shading, realistic, geometric, combination of different styles, etc.).
TIP: check out Sven’s portfolio online and tell us which style you find appealing. ︎
For portrait tattoos: include high quality copy of the photograph (please do not send the original pictures!) and preferably several of different photos for us to choose the best from!

During the other times, we are happily engaged with our customers who are getting their tattoos done.

2→We open your letter and review your idea.

4Consultation day! We finally meet you in person. Together we work through the concept, develop and refine your idea, figure out composition, proportion, and measurements. Please come prepared for an in-dept conversation. Bring your pictures (if you didn’t send them allready) and your sources of inspiration. Let us know if anything has changed since you sent in your package.
