Small Tattoo Cost

    I've never had any experience of getting a tattoo but would really like to have "Illegitimi non carborundum" tattoo'd on my upper arm.

    I only want plain black and about 3 inches tall two inches wide.

    Any guide to how much this would cost would be brilliant

    Hi! I have a few tattoos myself and hope I can help.

    From your description, I'm guessing about £50. I had a words tattoo done myself, it was a bit bigger than what you've described for yours and that was £65 so I'll estimate about £50.

    Some places vary in cost drastically though, so it depends greatly on where you go.

    I'd say around £40 - £50.

    Yea £50 is probably about right, I've got a small giraffe on my forearm that cost me £60 and a larger, colour bird on my back that was £35! But that was one from their portfolio. Custom tattoos will always be a bit more expensive.

    It depends on the artist and where you go, I guess. My custom 0.5inx0.5in >__> was £15, but it depends how complex it's going to be and how much time it'll take.

    Thanks for all the responses, much appreciated

    It would be cheaper to write in on yourself each morning with a sharpie :P That way, when it sinks in that tattoos are revolting things, you no longer have to look at it

    That's tiny! What was the tattoo?
