How Much Do Tattoos Typically Cost?

Tattoo

As a person who is inked quite extensively, I have a certain affinity for body art. When you find the right tattoo artist, they will be able to turn your body into a canvas that tells a story. When you look at my body, you can see a story of how I have progressed over time in knowledge and how I view myself. The thing is to make sure that you find a good fit with the artist that will do your work.

If you have never gotten a tattoo before, you are probably wondering how much this will cost. Just as with almost anything else you can purchase around the world, the cost will vary based on a number of different factors, including size, the amount of color, the expertise of the artist, the popularity of the artist, and the quality of the work — for starters.

If I were asked to give a general price range, I would say that tattoos will generally cost between $100 and $300; however, that can increase drastically if you want something that is highly intricate in design. It is also worth noting that there are some tattoo artists who charge by the hour, and these charges can range anywhere from $50 to $300 dollars per hour. I tend to stay away from artists who charge hourly rates. The primary reason I don’t do hourly rates is that tattoo artists are almost inherently loquacious for some reason, and the more they talk, the slower they work. I don’t mind the talk, I just don’t want to pay for it.

When I go in to get artwork, I ask for a direct quote for what I am looking to have done. Artists know what it will take to get a particular job done, and most of them can easily quote you a price. If you are new to the game, it may not be easy to determine to know if the price that you are being quoted is reasonable. Trust me, they will notice if you walk in with no art on your body and there are some who will take advantage of your lack of knowledge.

What I suggest is that you conduct a considerable amount of research before going in to get your tattoo. While doing research will help you in negotiating a price, it is also beneficial in gaining an understanding of the risks involved with getting a tattoo. There are a lot of laws and regulations that govern safety and health precautions in tattoo shops, but not all artists abide by them. When you conduct your research, make sure you familiarize yourself with the laws and regulations that govern safety. If you encounter an artist who does not practice proper safety protocol, keep it moving.

As you conduct your research, you will find that the number one factor that influences the cost of a tattoo will be the artist. Some artist has developed a reputation and this reputation has increased their popularity and value in the market. You will definitely pay more for these top-notch artists. What you want to do is find the artist that has the best reputation for your budget.

The amount of color that a tattoo has in it will also impact the price. The more color, the higher the price. The placement of the tattoo will also play a role in determining the price. There are different places on the body where nerves are exposed and sensitivity is greater, this impacts the ability of the artist to get the work done. Different parts of the body also make better canvases that others. Keep this in mind when deciding where you want your tattoo.

Where the tattoo parlor is located is important too. If the shop is located in vacationing spot or resort area, the cost will be significantly higher. Regular neighborhood locations are much more affordable.

Of course, the size of the tattoo will have a massive impact on the price of the tattoo that you receive. In essence, know what you want before you go in. Do your research to find out how much similar tattoos are going for and use that knowledge to negotiate. If you find the right artist, at the right time, you can negotiate a lower price if the business is slow. There is always someone in your budget, but be selective about who you use.
