Maïka Zayagata / The process

The process Because all creation follows its own process.


is to create the best tattoo project possible for everyone. To help me with this task TAKE TIME to read carefully this page as well as the application form. Thanks.

The process



You need to fill the online application form to submit your project.

If your project is selected you will be contacted to set up your first appointment.

Please be patient, as going through all the requests take some time.

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


The deposit

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

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 and you'll need to give another deposit for the next appointment.


Your design/concept

There is no consultation. We'll gather all the info we need from your application and we'll contact you if we need more input.

You will see your design/concept on the day of your tattoo appointment and we'll finalize and validate the last elements together before starting the tattoo session. 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.


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 something to drink. 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 tiring and I like to know I have all the time necessary to complete the session. 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. This is the best 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. But it's worth it.

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 may apply after that.
