By Appointment Only:
Founded in 2013, Forecastle Tattoo has been quietly carving out a space in the Greater Bangor community with a reputation for quality work coupled with a great experience.
We know that Bangor is home to many gifted tattoo artists and that means you can afford to be choosy when it comes to putting ink on your body. Allow us to show you what makes Forecastle different from so many other studios, and you'll see why our clients become friends (and repeat clients!).
Sam is currently focusing his work primarily on black and grey illustrative style, realism and surrealism, neo-traditional, and cover-ups. He particularly enjoys pin ups, pulp art, low-brow, machinery, art deco, art nouveau, streamline moderne and anything with a motor, hot rod, motorcycle, airplane or rocket ship related. He loves to create fantasy art, weird creatures, the fae, mermaids, fantastic beasts, and anything with tentacles.
While he will tattoo nearly anything and everything, these particular subjects are sure to get his attention and enthusiastic reply.
Please read the following information before submitting your request. Failure to read this fully may result in a denial for services.
Sam's rate is $180/hr. unless you are working on a larger, multi-session piece (such as a sleeve or back piece), in which case he may size it by the piece.
A non-refundable deposit is required to reserve your appointment.
The required deposit is $50 for a small tattoo appointment and $100 to reserve a longer appointment (we'll let you know at time of booking if your appointment is small or large.) A 48 hour notice is required to reschedule. If you do not reschedule with at least 48 hours notice you forfeit your deposit.
Everything is designed custom for you. Please be thorough in your description, you will likely not see a design prior to your appointment, so the more information you can provide the better.
Submitting this request does not guarantee you an appointment. Every tattoo idea is important to us regardless of whether or not it is accepted. If it is not, we will try to direct you to the artist that is best at the style you are looking to do. Not being accepted doesn’t make your idea any less significant, it just means it does not fit Sam's style.
We will notify you within 3-4 weeks if your tattoo has been chosen for an appointment.
You will be contacted to set up a consultation if required. Consultations can be done in person or over Zoom meeting if preferable or necessary.
