WHAT’S THE MINIMUM? QUOTE? CASH ONLY? WHAT’S THE PROCESS?
Asking, "How much does a tattoo cost?" is similar to asking, "How much does a bag of groceries cost?" That varies hugely based on what is in it, how big the bag is, and where you're buying it. Many factors go into the price of a tattoo, including design, placement, and size. When determining whether to get a tattoo at one shop or another, price should be the lowest consideration. This is a life-long investment.
Our shop minimum is $80. We charge by the hour and the shop hourly rate starts at $150. The tattoo artist you work with will determine your price quote and the final cost. In order to get an accurate quote, the tattoo artist you want to work with needs to see you in person. Your price quote is also given based on the assumption you sit still during the tattoo. If it takes longer, the cost can be higher. Large scale projects can be quoted by session. More detailed info on pricing can be found on our home page.
We accept cash, debit and credit cards, and we sell and accept gift cards and eGift cards which can be purchased here. Please DO NOT try to barter with your tattoo artist.
Payments are always made the same day you get a tattoo, at the end of your appointment. Even if it’s multiple sessions and the tattoo isn’t totally complete, you pay for that specific session. Before you start getting tattooed, make sure you have a quote for that session and have enough money (cash or card) to cover the cost if it ends up being more. You can tell your tattoo artists if you have a budget and they can pay attention to the time (hourly rate).
If you are a walk-in the tattoo artist you are working with will give you a quote for what you are asking for. Depending on how well you sit still during the tattoo or any changes along the way, the final cost might be more or less. Be sure you have cash or card to cover it. You can tell your tattoo artists if you have a budget and they can pay attention to the time (hourly rate).
If you want to set up an appointment(s), you will leave a deposit (that goes toward the final cost of the tattoo) and can get a quote of what the expected price of the whole tattoo will be (this may not be the case with large pieces). Depending on how well you sit still during the tattoo or any changes along the way, the final cost might be more or less. Be sure you have cash or card to cover it. You can tell your tattoo artists if you have a budget and they can pay attention to the time (hourly rate).
If you are looking for a deal or want to get a “break”, please take in to consideration that this is what our tattoo artists do to make a living. The tattoo artists we have at our tattoo shop are passionate about their art work and love tattooing, please don’t take advantage of that. As an artist, any artist, it is hard to set prices or tell a client a quote when the product is your own skills and effort. Our tattoo artists are worth it, worth the cost, worth the time, worth the wait.
