Maïka Zayagata / The process

The process Because all creation follows its own process.


is to create the best tattoo project possible for every one of my clients. To help me with this task I ask you to read carefully this page below as well as the application form.

Once you know my way to work, take the time to complete the application form.

I am the keeper of the time

A tattoo session lasts between 5 to 7 hours.

Full session allows the realization of the true potential of your project.

I choose the moments of pause to ensure the project's progress.

Your appointment will end only when I decide the tattoo is fully realized.

The process



If your project is selected you will be contacted to set up your first appointment. Please be patient, as going through each request can take some time.

You'll need to make a deposit to secure your first session.

If your project requires more then one appointment, after the first session you will have priority for your next sessions.


Your design/concept

You will see your design/concept only on the day of your tattoo appointment. That goes for any project.

As an artist in constant evolution, I keep my inspiration flow till the very end of the process. I work in a very intuitive manner, keeping my mind free for any new insight along the way.

No design/concept will be sent by mail or by any other means.


The deposit and taking an appointment

The deposit is non-refundable and will be deducted at the end of your project.

If you do not show up for your appointment, or if you cancel less than 72h prior, your deposit will be lost.

You will then be asked to give another deposit for the next appointment.


How to prepare for your appointment

A full session can last between 5 to 7 hours depending on each project. Some projects can be shorter. Make sure you have eaten and slept well before your appointment.

Bring snacks and water. A blanket can sometimes be useful, your body temperature can lower as the session moves along. I strongly suggest to not make any other plans after your long tattoo session. It can be quite tiring and I like to know I have all the time necessary to finish, which is sometimes hard to estimate. The best thing for you after your session will be to go home and rest.

I do not compromise on the time spent on a project. I found that this is the only way for the work to progress constantly and effectively. I will not make shorter sessions, unless you have a medical condition that requires it.

Each project is demanding. Patience and courage are needed.

Note: This type of style and work needs lots of focus and precision with the stencil and sometimes live drawing of the skin. The first hour of stencil is free of charge. Fees apply after that.


Eat well and sleep well before your appointment.


Go directly home to give some rest to your body.


Bring snacks, your bottle of Water and a blanket.
