ARE YOU THINKING ABOUT GETTING A TATTOO IN LONDON?


If you’re looking for a London tattoo, you can find that the prices vary wildly depending on which London tattoo shop you’re checking out. It will also vary depending on the type and size of the tattoo you want to have inked. Every tattoo is different and unique, so the price will depend on several different factors.

It’s hard to precisely quote what the cost of your chosen tattoo will be without meeting you and going over the details in person. However, it’s possible to get an estimate solely based on the size and style of the tattoo you want, bearing in mind that other elements including the amount of detail, the skill level of the artist and your chosen placement will also have an impact on the tattoo’s final cost.

There are a few things to keep in mind about London tattoo prices, so read on to learn more. 

Quality Needn’t Be Expensive

Some people worry that if they go to a high-quality, professional tattoo artist they’ll have to pay very high prices so instead, they go to a cheaper shop where the artists aren’t as highly trained or skilled. If you take that option, you could end up with a poor quality tattoo. Also, since an unskilled tattooist may take longer to complete your chosen design, you could end up paying even more than you would for a talented and experienced body artist. 

If you hate the result your cheaper tattooist produced, you’ll end up having to pay a lot more in the long-run for a cover-up or removal, so it’s always a good idea to go to a professional in the first place.

How Does Size Impact On Tattoo Prices?

The size of a tattoo matters when it comes to price, but it isn’t the only thing that gets taken into account. It doesn’t however, give you a reasonably good idea of how much the tattoo will cost, although you’ll need to remember that the complexity of the design and the colours you choose will add to the cost.

In the UK, the average price of a tattoo comes in at about £130, but there’s a lot of variation within that figure. A small tattoo on the wrist or ankle will usually cost around £60 - £80. A larger tattoo around the size of a credit card will come in at around £100 to £150 while a palm-sized tattoo could go up to around £250. 

A design that covers a forearm could be around £500 for a detailed design, with a reasonably detailed half-sleeve costing around £500. If you’re going for a full sleeve, you can expect the price to begin at £1500, increasing depending on your chosen design, how big your arms are, and the colours you choose.
