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.

Minimum charge

Our minimum charge is £60.

Let’s say you want a small tattoo on your wrist, ankle, fingers or thumbs.
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.

Deposit Policy

In order to book an appointment, we require £60 deposit or £100, depending on design.
