The First Question That Arises Once We Have Decided To Get A Tattoo Is: How Much Will It Cost Me?
Next, We Will Tell You The Main Factors That Influence The Final Price Of Your Tattoo
1. The Size And Design Detail
The size is an essential factor to consider, the larger the design, the longer it will take to make it and the time it takes to design it and translate it into your skin will define its value.
The design is one of the main factors that affect the price of the tattoo. The more detailed the design, the more laborious it will be, for example, a face will be more detailed than a text, and a text is less detailed than a triangle. Each one has its different challenges, but the detail
If your design is basic, the cost will be lower because the tattoo artist can use digital tools. If you want a custom design it can also be done, this takes more hours of work because you have to create a design from scratch, but this is what artists generally prefer to be able to better express their art. It is part of your idea and a unique design is created in the style of the tattoo artist.
2. Color Or Black
When choosing whether you prefer to get a tattoo in colors or in black, you should consider that the more colors you use, the more expensive it will be, this is due to the extra work involved in using different colors or mixtures of colors and that sometimes it is more difficult to work with colored inks than the black for its components. For example: yellow or white ink has to be injected several times more than normal so that it penetrates well into your dermis and does not fade later.
3. Area Of The Body Where The Tattoo Will Go
Each part of the body has different sensitivity and there are some areas more difficult to tattoo than others. This is mainly due to the position that the client and tattoo artist must-have during the procedure, due to the sensitivity (discomfort) of the body area and the hardness/thickness of the skin in that area.
There are tricky places where the tattoo artist must be extremely careful when doing it, this generally includes the genitals, face, neck, palm of the hand, and soles of the feet. The dermis of the palm of the hand and the sole of the foot is one of the most constantly renewed, which causes the tattoo to wear out and have to be retouched eventually.
On the other hand, the places with more muscle are less sensitive, so getting a tattoo on your arms, legs or shoulders will be easier and therefore cheaper.
4. Tattoo Artist Hourly Rate
The experience of the tattooist is one of the main factors that affect the price, as well as the style. The more years of experience they have tattooed, the higher the hourly rate they will charge, AND whether their style is very detailed or simple will affect the price. How much do realistic tattoo shops in Rome? A portrait the size of a hand, costs between 450 and 650 euros. Some more expensive or established artists even go as high as 1000 euros. There are tattoo artists or studios that prefer to charge per session, where each session is approximately 4-5 hours.
5. Get Tattooed In Studio Or “Private Studio”
The place where we are going to go to get the tattoo is very important. The studio must have all the hygiene measures that are required by law and more so now in times of pandemic it must be a safe space for you and for the people who work in it. An established and professional studio will have all the required permits to tattoo, these include tattoo artist licenses, CafePress operating notice, and delegation permits.
All their staff will be trained in first aid, hygiene, and asepsis courses, that is why if your tattoo artist invites you to get tattooed in a “private studio” (or in other words: the tattoo artist’s house) he does not assure you that they comply with all the necessary measures and you could be endangering your skin, life and the result of the tattoo.
