How Much will a Tattoo Cost-Guide to Tattoo Pricing

When someone is new to the whole tattoo thing you want to know how much will a tattoo cost. That is not always an easy question to answer. There are a lot of things to take into consideration when you think about how much money you should be spending on a tattoo. You could get one tattoo at this shop and go to another tattoo shop and get the same exact tattoo and the price will be totally different. Here is a guide so that you can judge how much will a tattoo cost.

1. Each tattoo shop has their own way of pricing tattoos, and the tattoo artists also have their own pricing ways. The more popular the tattoo shop and tattoo artist are the more you can expect to pay. If the shop or the artist are have a busy schedule then they will probably charge you more money also.

2. The tattoo design that you want to get plays a huge part in how much will a tattoo cost. If the tattoo design that you want to get is really big, has a lot of detail, and is in color you should expect to spend quite a bit of money to get it done. There is also a difference in if you want the tattoo artist to draw out a special design or if you bring in a tattoo flash design.

3. How much time the tattoo will take also answers the question of "how much will a tattoo cost". If your tattoo design is big and will take lots of hours and many visits you will spend lots of money to get it done. Most tattoo artist will charge by the hour. So they can look at the design and tell you how much time they think it will take them to get the tattoo done. Then they will give you a quote based on this.

The most important thing to remember when you want to know how much will a tattoo cost is that you won't always want to go to the cheapest artist. There might be a reason they are so cheap. The quality of work could reflect the low price that they are charging you to do the tattoo.

Here is kind of what you can expect to pay for certain tattoos, but this is not set in stone. Remember the things we talked about.

Smaller tattoo designs that are on spots like your ankle, wrist, or foot are between 50 and 150 Medium tattoos on spots like your forearm, lower or upper back, leg are between 150 and 500 Larger tattoos on spots like a sleeve, a full back piece, full leg are between 500 and 2,000

With this information you should feel more comfortable when it come time to decide if you are getting ripped off by your tattoo artist. And if this is your first tattoo you know what you should be spending to make your dream tattoo a reality.
