Prices & FAQ's
How much a tattoo costs?
We understand that the price of a tattoo is important, but we would always advise to choose a tattooist based on how good the artist is and how much you admire their work.
There are a lot of factors to consider when pricing up a design, because every situation, tattoo and person are different. We work out the prices of tattoos based on size, placement, detail and complexity of the design, although it’s impossible to give an exact tattoo price, please send us a detailed email, explaining what you would like to get.
If a design involves small and intricate details and the placement of the tattoo is more difficult to tattoo, like an armpit for example, it will take a lot longer overall and the cost will therefore increase.
Our minimum charge is £60.
Let’s say you want a small tattoo on your wrist, ankle, fingers or thumbs.
Hourly and daily rates
Our hourly rate is £100 and a day session costs £600.
If you have the design already drawn up and the tattoo artist has a good idea of how long the piece will take, we may charge an upfront price.
We charge hourly for sittings longer than 3 hours.
In order to book an appointment, we require £60 deposit or £100, depending on design.
A tattoo deposit is paid, an artist to begin work on a design idea and to hold a tattoo appointment. The amount of the deposit equals to our minimum charge rate.
The deposit for full-day session is £100.
For multi-session tattoos, the deposit will be held as payment towards the last session of the tattoo.
A deposit will also be forfeited in full in the case you:
- do not appear for a tattoo appointment;
- cancel or reschedule an appointment without giving at least 48 hours notice;
- arrive more than 15 minutes late to your appointment
