How Much Does A Tattoo Cost?

Unfortunately, there is no easy way to determine how much one tattoo will cost in regards to another. There are several different factors that are taken into account in coming up with a tattoos price. While it is often first impulse to try and find the cheapest tattoo artist possible, it is highly recommended that you do not do that. A tattoo is definitely something that you want to skimp out on in terms for quality, that’s for sure!

One of the factors that are factored into how much a tattoo will cost is where you decide to have the tattoo. Some areas cost more than others while some are much easier to tattoo and thus, cost less. The design is another thing to take into account to come upon a price. Determining the intricacy of what you’re getting inked will directly determine how much it’s going to cost. Getting your initials would obviously cost less than getting several dragons wrapped around a totem pole. It’s all common sense really.

Whether or not there are colors in the tattoo will also affect the price since colored ink costs more for the tattoo artist. Also, the size is a big factor in determining the price since that directly relates to the area or part of the body you’re having it done on.  Lastly the time spent creating the tattoo and applying will also affect the price of your tattoo. If you have come up with an original design that requires the tattoo artist to draw a stencil on by hand, you can expect to be charged a bit more. Also, if everything factors together to create an incredibly lengthy tattoo to apply than you can expect that to cost more as well.

You shouldn’t really worry about price too much when you’re getting a tattoo. Obviously you don’t want to go broke but unless you were unaware that tattoos are pretty expensive, you knew that you needed a nice chunk of change heading into the whole ordeal. Don’t miss out on a tattoo you really, really wanted just because you found out it would have cost more. If that ends up being the case than just delay the application of the tattoo for a little longer so you’ll have more time to come up with the extra money. In the end, you don’t want to be asking yourself how much the tattoo is. You want to ask yourself how much the tattoo will mean to you!
