Q. How can I be a part of this?
A. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll send you everything you need to know.
Q. What happens in the session?
A. Dru will read your astrology chart for half an hour. Following your reading, Jessika offers you the opportunity to draw an oracle card to add another dimension to your session. The cards are very healing and offer gentle, compassionate guidance. Jessika explains the symbolism of your personal drawing that she has created intuitively, based on the issues you’re working through and what came up in your astrology reading. You decide where on your body you would like it placed.
Q. Can my friend / partner come while I have the astro~tattoo?
A. If your friend/partner is not participating in the astro~tattoo session, we ask that they do not join you. Considering the nature of the work and how personal it is, having someone present who is not involved changes the dynamic quite considerably.
Q. Do you offer sliding scale options?
A. The cost of the session is derived from the current industry standard of an individual tattoo and an individual reading. In each city we visit, we offer a certain number of spots specifically for queer-trans BIPOC folks at a sliding scale rate. Please ask about this when booking if it applies to you.
Q. Do you offer group sessions?
A. Yes! Group numbers are limited due to the amount of time each astro~tattoo takes. Not everyone in the group is required to get both a reading and a tattoo, but the group must consist of people who are all participating (getting either a reading or tattoo, or both).
Q. I’m straight/heterosexual. Can I participate?
Yes, you can. It’s important that you understand that we are both queer, very queer. Being queer is not just a status of sexuality or gender – it defines our politics, ethics, understanding of intersectionality and privilege, and where we direct our energy. If any of this conflicts with your life values, or if any of it is new to you, please take the time to research any of the above topics and decide from there if this is for you.
Q. Can I have a reading without getting a tattoo?
Q. Can I get a tattoo without having an astrology reading?
A. Absolutely. Contact Jessika to arrange your appointment.
Q. Who decides where the tattoo goes?
A. Your body. Your choice.
Q. What will the tattoo look like?
A. No one knows yet! Jessika listens in on your reading and draws intuitively, based on what comes up. The tattoo is personal to you and your process. No astro-tattoo will have culturally appropriative, racist or hateful imagery contained within it.
Q. Are stick and poke / handpoke tattoo’s safe?
A. Yes. Jessika uses high quality ink and needles, with a meticulous approach to sanitation. This article answers questions and address’s many misconceptions.
Q. Can I purchase the Visions Crystal Oracle Deck?
A. Absolutely. You can either order through Jessika’s website or pay cash/e-transfer in person at your session.

Q. Where are you located? I don’t think I’m in the same city.
A. Right now we’re on the road with this project across Nth America. We will be stopping in places based on requests from people wanting to be a part of this, so if you are interested let us know where you are and we just might swing by.
