Let me start this page the way most customers do, with comparison shopping. You are not buying a pair of shoes or a watch. Tattoos are not the same at every shop. Just because they have the same picture does not mean the end result is the same. If you are “shopping” for a tattoo based on price you are probably going to make a permanent mistake. The best price does not always mean the best deal and the highest price does not always mean the best tattoo. I’ve seen lots of beginning artist charging the same price as experienced artist because they think that’s what they should charge as a tattoo artist. Any way what I am saying is the price is the last thing you should look at (I mean this only a lifelong purchase).
Start with the shop itself such as is it clean. Look at the artist portfolios. In the portfolios you should be judging the work not looking for tattoo designs. Look for clean consistent lines, solid colors and nice smooth fades. Any artist will say “sure I can do that” but look at the portfolios and decide for yourself if you think they can do that then ask how much it will cost. Now to the questions.
