Those vague questions do not give us the information required to give a proper price. You can compare it to asking, ‘How much is a car?’. It depends on the model, what features if used and so on. If you looking to get some good ink, be sure to have a clear plan in mind when a comes to your design. Try to figure out roughly how large or big you want the tattoo to be and bring in visual examples or references of what you’re looking for if possible.
Your references can be also pictures, that will give your artist more information about your taste and the style you want your tattoo since there are so many tattoo styles and ideas. Since every work is different and something is done by the hour, half day, full day or even by a flat price for the piece.
That will make it easier to give you an accurate price quote.
