How much will my tattoo cost?
Each of my tattoos is a unique, individual piece of artwork that reflects the interests and desires of my clients. This means it’s often difficult to provide a price with any certainty until we have fully discussed your ideas. Once we’ve had a discussion about your needs and settled on a design we will provide a final price range for your tattoo.
Of course, I do realise that many clients will want to have an idea of price before coming into the studio, and because of this I provide a very rough guide to my pricing below.
To book your tattoo appointment you will need to pay a booking fee that is equivalent to one hour's tattoo time (£80). This booking fee comes off the last hour of your tattoo and ensures that your appointment slot is reserved for you and is refundable should you choose to cancel giving me 48 hours notice. I will not begin any design work beyond the initial free consultation without a booking fee being paid.
Tattoos that take less than 3 hours:
Any tattoo that takes less than 3 hours will be charged within a set price range, quoted specifically for that exact piece. The minimum charge for any tattoo is £80, which covers any small tattoo on a limb of up to an hours tattoo time, this charge covers the set up costs and design time. I do not charge extra to design your tattoo.
Tattoos that take more than 3 hours:
Tattoos that take longer than 3 hours are charged at an hourly rate of £80 per hour. The length of time it takes to complete a tattoo (and therefore the price) varies with size, style, design complexity and the area of the body to be tattooed. Flat, stable areas such as forearms, thighs and calves are usually relatively quick to tattoo compared to trickier areas such as the ribs, sternum, abdomen and neck which take longer to tattoo and are therefore usually more expensive.
