Japanese Tattoo Prices
Japanese Tattoo Prices. This Japanese sleeve project finished recently, showcasing Blue Koi Fish and Lotus Flowers in three stages of life. I really enjoyed working on this project and happy to see it finished, especially because we all know how hard it is.
A lot of people asking how much time work like this could take, so I decided to answer this question here.
Full Sleeve can take +/-30 hours, depending on many things, like, actual design, size of your arm, healing process and skin condition. And if we can see ready design and more or less estimate we still can’t be 100% sure on healing process etc.
Right now my hourly rate is $200 for big projects on clean skin and $250/300 for small projects, cover ups and incorporation with old tattoo projects. All these things will be discussed on consultation.
Usually I work 4 hours per session (even though we can do less or sometimes more, just need to discuss it in advance). Break between the sessions can be 1-2 weeks, its an average comfortable minimum, though again, it can be more.
So all together work like this takes few months to finish. Sometimes in exceptional cases people would like to get a sleeve in several days. Its possible, but will definitely be really hard for both of us and will effect healing process. So I wouldnt recommend it. Remember it’s a process we all have to enjoy!
Schedule an Appointment
Bookings are now open for December-January. But consultations can be done within next few days.
If you’d like to have this kind of tattoo in your life, and like my style of tattooing, please feel free to contact me and then we will discuss your custom tattoo. But before that:
1. Please check up portfolio ones more, just to be sure that the style of work is compatible to your tattoo idea, I wouldn’t be able to help if it’s not.
2. Collect reference pictures to clearly illustrate your tattoo idea in the best way. Please note: I work by custom only. Photos of someone else’s tattoos can only be used as an example of desired tattoo style. Absolutely NO copying of other peoples tattoos or parts of that tattoos!
3. I only take consultation bookings via e-mail, please send detailed conceptual description of your tattoo idea, including approximate expecting size, body part, left or right side etc. Please attach all images you have collected. The more useful information you can provide, the quicker your actual consultation can be scheduled.
I work only in Japanese Style and absolutely serious about results of my work, that’s why I’m always really selective on what to do on skin. Please, set up your consultation appointment only if you strongly believe that I can do what exactly you want.
