Pricing a tattoo is difficult. There is no standard pricing. Don’t be frustrated if you find that most places won’t give a quote online or on the phone. Custom tattoo quotes depend on several factors which include the size and intricacy of the design as well as its placement on the body. Therefore, the only way to get an accurate quote is to come into the studio and visit with an artist directly. Different artists use varying techniques and often take different amounts of time to perform these methods; because of this, no two artists will typically give the same quote for a tattoo.
For creating your artwork, it helps to bring as much source material as possible from pictures, books, magazines, and the internet. Have a good idea of where you want your tattoo, what size you want it, and how much detail you would like it to have. The more prepared you are, the more accurate your quote will be, and the happier you’ll ultimately be with your new tattoo!
