How do deposits work?

All bookings require a minimum deposit in advance of at least 50% of the total quote; which serves both a formal statement of commitment to the booking and enters them into the queue for appt time slot eligibility. Without exception, this deposit applies to bookings for all seminars, workshops, event registrations, performances, body modifications, body suspensions, body piercings, etc. Everything within my scope of practice will require a deposit in order to secure yourself a spot in my booking schedule.

Deposits are non-refundable; but open-ended and transferable. In other words: once your deposit is received, it is a commitment to the booking and becomes credit toward my work. The monetary value of your deposit is locked at the rate of the assigned modification when the deposit is received. Your booking will be entered into my schedule queue at the exact date and time your deposit is received; dictating your place in line when it comes to choice in booking time slots. 

Please note that I am a very understanding and compassionate cyborg. I understand that life happens and sometimes this can conflict with your booking. Maybe your work schedule throws you a curveball which doesn’t cooperate with your booking. Maybe financial hardship hits you between the date of booking and waiting for your booking date. Maybe you’ve fallen ill near your booking date. Maybe you’ve had a change of heart about your modification choice and would prefer to apply your deposit to something else instead. Maybe another reason not listed occurred. In any of these cases, you must notify me as soon as possible to advise me of the details of your situation so I can assess the best possible route forward with the best interests of all parties involved in mind. If you fully change your mind and decide not to follow through with a deposited booking, you can let me know and sell it to someone else at my discretion.

So far in my whole career I have yet to forfeit anyone’s deposit for any reason. Appts that no-call, no-show cost me money and valuable time, as well as take away other people’s opportunities to have work done. Please give a minimum of 48 hours notice before your booking date/time to make any changes.

Deposits are absolutely necessary because:

  • They are used to ensure all the necessary equipment and supplies needed for your booking are stocked in advance and ready for your appt.
  • Travel costs, gas, flights during tours and work trips need coverage.
  • They ensure your commitment to your booking and ensure that you will show up for your appt.
  • My time is valuable and limited.

If you would like to deposit and make a booking with me, contact me first to sort out the details and be sure I’m comfortable committing to your request prior to accepting your deposit. All bookings must forego initial screening and assessment before I’ll commit. This is necessary and done for your safety.
