heres an artist i have contacted. 

This is his instagram T O B Y • J A M E S 💔 (@tobyjamez) • Instagram photos and videos

here are a few tattoos hes done that sort of match the style i was looking for.

the tattoo i want to get is roughly 3 inches high and 2 and a quarter inches wide. 
I sent him a message asking if i could afford the tattoo i wanted from him for $400 dollars. 

he said for a tattoo that size his price would be around $400 dollars

 

i have 2 questions 

 

01. Do you think his work matches my tattoo needs? i thought hed be a good choice since he does a lot of video game and cartoon type tattoos. But im not sure if there are details that i am overlooking about the quality. 

 

02. does the price seem like its fair?

His work looks OK to me. Price? That's up to you to decide. The thing is that a lot of the work of a tattoo is setup and clean up and that's the same whether you are tattooing for 10 minutes or 10 hours.

what about compared to this artists work? here is his instagram Sawooli (@tattoosbysawooli) • Instagram photos and videos

one thing i should maybe say is most of this artists work is not in this style. also ive gotten a small name tattoo from him before and it came out satisfactory.

I don’t think this work is as good. Get your tattoo from the person that is fluent in the style, not from the “I can do anything” Tattooer.

$400 seems like a LOT for an idea this simple and small. it's usually by the hour i thought, like $150/hr seems to be around the standard. 

i kind of thought it was a lot too. the shop that the artist works at charges 200$ per hour but im not sure if his price was based on an hourly fee or if it was the cost he was giving for a single tattoo. 

 

im trying to find out what it would cost from the second artist i posted but i havnt gotten a response yet.

guys im not sure what to do, i asked people on reddit if they thought i was being over charged and about 14 people responded saying that they thought it was overpriced. 

 

  

LOL  sorry, but you asked reddit ? LOL  if it's a tattoo that you want and you like this tattooer, then pay the money, 

 

remember one thing.

You're putting something permanent on your body. Not the time to worry about price. Simple tattoos can be harder than complex tattoos because you'll see every minor flaw. There's no place to hide.

Let's put it this way - It's still cheaper than laser removal and a cover up.
