The pricing of every tattoo is different because there are so many different factors involved. The studio minimum for a tattoo at Pigment is $150. A good rule of thumb for single session tattoos is roughly $35 per square inch. Multiple session tattoos, such as sleeves, or back pieces, are generally priced on an hourly basis at a rate of $200-$250 per hour. The size and complexity of your tattoo both have an impact on how much your tattoo will ultimately cost. Tattoo prices are also impacted by the artist performing the work. At Pigment, our resident artists’ hourly rates vary based on experience.
