How much will my tattoo design idea cost?

Please fill out the form below so I can provide you with a time & cost quote for the tattoo you'd like to have. 

Below are examples of tattoos & a description of how long they took. This should give you an idea of the time entailed therefore a rough idea of cost for the tattoo you would like to get.

If you fill out the above form, I will be able to provide you with a more accurate time & price quote for the tattoo you'd like to get. 

I will be able to respond to you anywhere between 1 day & 1 week depending on my work load at the time. 


Large scale tattoo work

Is almost impossible to put an exact time on large scale tattooing. The photos on the top row are tattoos I've designed & tattooed. These have been completed in a day.

My sleeve done by the incredible Curly Moore is the photo on the bottom row. This took roughly 40+ hours to complete over a 2 year period.

Heavy coverage tattooing requires patience & some level of perseverance. A good quality large scale tattoo can't be done in one session.  Usually regular sessions booked a minimum of a month apart, to allow for healing, is recommended.

Trying to put an exact time quote on Large Scale tattooing is like asking how long a piece of string is.

Full day sessions are charged at £400 & last between 5-7 hours.

Three hour tattoo sessions

Are a great first session for on-going large scale work. It allows us both to see where your threshold is, then subsequent sessions can be extended or reduced.

It is possible to get tattoos completed in a three hour session.

The top row of photos are tattoos completed in a three hour session. The bottom row are tattoos completed in x2 three hour sessions. 

£80 an hour for session work - £240

One - Two hour Tattoos

Like every tattoo, isn't about to size. The time it takes usually depends on the level of detail in it.

£80 an hour for session work.

For one off piece pricing £80-£180

Minimum Charge Tattoos

Are for tattoos that take 45mins or under. 

After 5 years in a walk-in tattoo studio where I did a lot of minimum charge pieces. But after 3 years at a custom only studio based near London, now nearly 1 year in Exeter, I very much enjoy tattooing in a Custom tattoo studio. Therefore I don't do nearly as many minimum charge pieces, but please do enquire. £50.
