Orange you glad you bought a piece of art from Adam Hays?

By day, I'm a tattoo artist and the owner of Red Rocket Tattoo in New York City.

When I'm not working on people, my primary medium is ink, watercolor, and liquid acrylic on paper. I consider my tattoo and painting styles to be "illustrative traditional," and I am inspired by comic book art and other dork stuff (mainly Star Wars), Western art (I grew up in West Texas), Native American culture, art nouveau, and Japanese tattooing, among other things. I'm also obsessed with the color orange.

I started an Etsy shop to sell prints of my paintings, as well as some originals. Two years ago, I started doing screenprints as well. I was printing in my living room but recently moved into a workshop space outside my apartment, which should mean considerably less dog hair stuck to the finished product. You're welcome.

Returns and exchanges
Generally speaking, I do not accept returns or offer refunds unless I am at fault in some way. If you feel I have made an error (you received the wrong item, or something like that), please let me know and I will do my best to make it right.
I accept Paypal, credit cards (Direct Checkout), and Etsy Gift Cards.
For both domestic and international orders I ship via USPS. Small merchandise (pins, stickers, greeting cards) are sent without tracking.

Within the United States, delivery times are usually 3-7 days from when the order is sent out, depending on where in the country you are. For international orders, delivery can take up to a month, though it's usually much faster. This depends entirely on customs and is outside of my control.

Delivery does occasionally take longer than expected. I am unable to send out replacements unless it has been longer than 30 days (domestic) or 45 days (international).

If you are interested in expedited shipping or any other non-standard shipping option please message me before placing an order.

The buyer is responsible for any customs or import taxes that may be imposed on international orders.

I don't take responsibility for customers improper addressing, so please make sure your address is correct including apartment or house number.
