I want a tattoo.


Answer by  John (9008)

It varies tremendously, depending upon the location of the tattoo, the detail involved, the size of the tattoo, and the artist. A very small, simple tattoo (like a dot or simple shape) would be as little as $20. A large, detailed tattoo by a talented artist can cost thousands and take several tattooing sessions to complete.

Price varies by shop and the quality of the tattoo artists. An important thing to know is that they should never charge you more for color since all tattoo inks cost the same price. There are two different forms of payment, per design, for smaller works, or by the hour, for larger or more detailed works.

Price depends on size, detail, complexity and location. You won't be able to get a tattoo cheaper than $50 (unless you want to catch Hep). Large, detailed tattoos cost hundreds of dollars, much like large pieces of art. Your price includes the cost of equipment, which must be sterilized and high quality, as well as the artist's time.

Well every tattoo artist charges there own rates. So one could charge you a couple hundred dollars more than a shop right next to it. If you want an accurate estimate contact an artist and give him a picture and some info about what size it will be and they will give an idea of what it will cost.

It all depends on the size and amount of color, but a decent sized tattoo with one or two colors will cost you around a hundred dollars.
