This link will open on 19th March!
submit a custom tattoo lu loram-Martin, tattoo artist and illustrator, specialising in blackwork flower designs, based in toronto, canada

 If you’ve landed on this page hopefully you are thinking of getting some work by me!

To save us both some time and effort I've put together a boatland of information about my booking process...


(my original booking process is explained further below)

 Due to the amount of requests I have for illustration and mural projects I will be booking tattoo projects only one month in advance.

If you are interested in any illustration or interior mural work for early 2023 let me know I can schedule you in now!
I will be booking tattoo appointments in 3 stages…
1.  Priority booking.
I will be keeping a priority booking list. This will be clients with ongoing projects. They will be able to book in advance at the end of every month for the following month (if you think you should be on this list contact me).
2. Flash booking
I will open up specific days for flash pieces. These appointments will be first come first serve via my newsletter
3. New custom bookings
I will be keeping a WAITLIST for custom tattoo projects for April-June. 
You can submit your project through the link at the top of this page. 
I will work through the waitlist at the end of every month.
Keep an eye on your inbox!
*Submissions do not guarantee appointments*
All tattoos must be in my style, no colour, no hands, necks, faces or coverups without prior approval (contact me)
To simplify things there will be three set prices…
  • Flash pieces - $350 (+taxes)
  • Half-day custom tattoo - $500 (+taxes) - up to hand size piece 
  • Full-day custom tattoo - $1000 (+taxes) - up to standard 'letter' size piece (8.5 x11")
Any larger projects will be done on multiple sittings, and you will be added to the priority list until your project is complete. 
A $200 deposit will be required on all bookings!

So the good news is I take new tattoo booking requests every two or three months for the following two or three months, so I’m never booked miles out.... 

But the catch is I only take requests on ONE day every three months. That date is at the top of this page (you may want to add it to your calendar). 

I take all new tattoo booking requests via the link at the top of this page. This form will only be available on the day I‘m taking requests, from 10am to 10pm. I do not take booking requests on a first come first served basis, so it doesn't matter how quickly you submit your request. Take your time, it's much easier if you give me all the information needed in one go.

I have a newsletter where I send out flash and one-off designs. I also use it to fill any cancellation and guest spot appointments. It's also a handy reminder for when my books open.

You can sign up here....

I usually get a huge number of requests when my books open, so I often cannot accommodate everyone. Please don’t be offended if I’m not able to offer you an appointment, I’m only one person and I do my best. You can, of course, submit your request on future booking days.


  • I only book one custom client per day
  • Minimum charge: $600+taxes for custom tattoos
  • I charge per piece, for an estimate send me an email containing all the information listed at the bottom of this page.
  • Flash tattoos are priced per piece and sent out via my newsletter
  • Large projects that require more than one sitting are $1200+taxes // day
  • I tattoo between 12pm to 6pm


 I cannot guarantee the final price, time, or session amount needed to complete any tattoo. I can only give estimates.

A non-refundable deposit of $200 is required for all tattoo appointments at the time of booking. You can pay via credit, debit or Paypal. You are able to transfer your deposit to another appointment up to two times, provided 72 hours notice is given.

If you change your tattoo design idea before your appointment it will be considered a ‘new submission’ and will still need to be accepted. If you change your design idea with less than 7 days notice, or after I have begun any design work or research, your deposit will be forfeited. 

If you are travelling to get tattooed by me I recommend that you take out travel insurance to protect yourself. If any unforeseen emergencies occur and we need to rearrange your appointment I cannot reimburse the cost of flights/hotels etc.

If you didn’t find the information you needed here, check my FAQ page!

If you want to get your request ready ahead of time this is the information I will be asking for :





*18+only, ID will be required on the day


Contact number:

*This will only be used if essential




Have you been tattooed by me before?

*If yes, what was it?


If you are from out of town, where will you be traveling from?


Description of what you would like to get tattooed:

*Please be as specific and concise as possible...'floral design’ can be a little vague, and essays are stressful when I have looooads of requests to get through!



*Please include a photo of the area and specify if it is your right or
left side. If you have any scarring or skin conditions in the area let
me know! Are you 100% set on the placement or flexible if the design
works better somewhere else?


Do you have any existing tattoos in that area?

*You must add a photo if so!



*In inches - not ‘medium/large/etc - this can be a rough estimate, but
it is important to include. I need it to gauge how long an appointment
will be needed. Placement is unfortunately not enough....all humans
are different sizes :)



What is your budget for this piece?

*This makes sure we are on the same page with pricing

If you would like to share any meaning behind your tattoo feel free:

*Not required

And that’s about it!
