Understanding the Cost of Tattoos

Exploring Pricing Factors at Skins and Needles Tattoo Studio

Our Prices:

At Skins and Needles Tattoo Studio, we believe that every tattoo is a unique work of art, crafted with precision and creativity.

As you embark on your tattoo journey, it’s essential to understand the factors that contribute to the cost of your desired design. We will delve into the pricing structure at our studio, which typically starts at a minimum charge of £40 and can vary based on factors such as time, size, coverage, colour, and detail.

Hourly Rate and Time Considerations:

One of the primary factors influencing the cost of a tattoo at Skins and Needles is the hourly rate. Our skilled tattoo artists dedicate their time and expertise to creating stunning and personalised designs. The usual cost ranges between £80 and £100 per hour. The time required for each tattoo depends on various factors, including the size, complexity, and intricacy of the design.

Size, Coverage, and Placement:

The size of a tattoo plays a significant role in determining its cost. Larger tattoos generally require more time and effort to complete, resulting in a higher price. Additionally, the amount of skin coverage required for the design can influence the overall cost. Whether you opt for a small, discreet piece or a full sleeve, our artists will ensure that the price accurately reflects the time and effort invested in bringing your vision to life.

Colour and Detail:

The use of colour in a tattoo can enhance its visual impact and complexity. Vibrant hues and intricate shading techniques often require additional time and skill, contributing to the overall cost. Similarly, highly detailed designs with intricate line work or fine details demand meticulous attention from our artists, which may affect the pricing.

Pricing by the Piece:

While our usual pricing structure is based on an hourly rate, we also consider pricing by the piece for certain projects. This approach allows us to account for the specific requirements of each design, ensuring fairness and transparency in our pricing. Our experienced artists will assess the complexity, size, and other factors to determine a fair price for your tattoo.
