Tattoo Pricing

Our Rough Guide to Tattoo pricing.

Unless you talk to the artist and get a quote, you can’t know for sure how much you’ll end up paying, It is not rude to ask. and you should absolutely have a ballpark idea of the cost before you book an appointment. There’s nothing wrong with asking what the hourly rate is, and for a rough estimate of how long the tattoo will take. Wildcat’s usual hourly rate is €100 per hour, but this is just an indication as the tattoo artists generally price by the piece. The cost of your session is completely at the Artist’s discretion, and you will discuss and agree on it with him/her before your appointment. There is a chance this may fluctuate if you are continuing session work for example. 

The following is a guide to what we charge for tattoos, along with some sample images to illustrate.

Pretty much all of those tattoos that are just a square inch or two, single needle, single colour, on arms or legs. We’re talking about love hearts, stars, simple geometric shapes, small words or initials, simple symbols, etc.

This is the price range for those tattoos that seem simple, but they usually require more substantial filling/colouring in, are more intricate, are placed on a trickier body part, have more than one colour, longer or more than one word, etc, etc

The range starts getting wider and so does the ambiguity! Tattoos in this range will definitely have a few colours and/or shading, different line weights, more detail and are roughly around 3 or 4 square inches. Or they can be simple design but bigger size. Or maybe a lot of detail but small in size.

Things start getting interesting at this range. There might be hints of realism here and there, or elaborate watercolour, damn good shading and decent sizes. ​ It’s safe to say from here on these are the tattoos that will make it to the tattoo artists portfolio.

We’re approaching full day territory now. A lot of colour, a lot of realism, a lot of intricacy, crazy designs, beautiful portraits, experimental placement, who knows how many needles, lunch breaks, smoke breaks, etc

All of those tattoos that we wish we could do for you in one sitting but there are just not enough hours in the day. Sleeves, back pieces, chest pieces and the such. What dreams are made of, where real friendships begin.
