Tattoo Pricing

How much will a tattoo cost?

 we get asked this question several times every day, and it is a bit of a tricky question to answer, as there are so many factors to consider, such as size, color, intricacy and so on.


When receiving this question by message, we will often give a ball park figure, but prefer to see you in person to size up where you want to get it, how big it is, and the amount of detail involved. Just looking at a picture on the screen, and seeing the physical reality are very different. That is why we always encourage you to come in and talk to us.



Factors that determine tattoo prices:

The Artist


The cost of a tattoo will depend on the skill of the artist. As with any art form, there are levels of professionalism. Tyas has been tattooing for over 25 years, and this shows in his work. Remember, you are getting a work of art on your body, for life. It is worth getting it from a professional. 



The Colour




The amount of color used will affect the price, if there is only one color, it will be less expensive compared to a more colored one. This is because a colored tattoo requires more detail and the more detailed it is the more time it will take.



The Design



There are a variety of designs to choose from, and some are very simple, whereas others are more intricate. The more detail there is, the more it will cost.



The Size

The larger the tattoo, obviously, the higher the price and the smaller the tattoo, the cheaper it is. A larger tattoo is more detailed and takes more time. The size plays a HUGE factor in tattoo prices.

The cost is not the only factor, also consider the quality

As I said above, this is a work of art, that you are putting on your body. Of course you want to have an idea of how much it is going to cost, but that should not be your main motivation. You are going to have to live with this on your body for the rest of your life, therefore quality is the key. You also need to feel comfortable with the artist, as this is a very personal experience. Often our customers become lifelong friends, and put their complete trust in us.
