Your tattoo shop questions, answered

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Fash.

How much do tattoos cost?

The average cost for a tattoo is $50 to $250 for a small or simple image like a heart or cross, or $150 to $450 for a medium-sized tattoo like a portrait or tribal design. For a complex design or large tattoo, like a half or full sleeve or full back, prices start and $500 and can reach $4,000.

Tiny tattoos under 2 inches typically cost $30 to $100 or the tattoo parlor's minimum fee.

Tattoo artists charge $120 to $150 per hour, depending on their experience and reputation and the design complexity.

How much should you tip a tattoo artist?

Tip a tattoo artist 20% if you're happy with their work or up to 25% for intricate custom designs or if the artist exceeded your expectations.

Do tattoo shops do piercings?

Many tattoo places also do piercings for ears, noses, tongues, belly buttons, and more. However, not all shops offer this service. Contact local tattoo parlors to confirm whether piercing is offered.

What should I expect when getting a tattoo done at a shop?

After finding a tattoo artist who specializes in the style you want, book an initial consultation to discuss your design placement, size, colors, and features. Most consultations are free and last 30 to 60 minutes. After confirming the design, the artist will schedule your appointment.

During your appointment, you'll be seated in a tattoo chair, usually in an open area. If you prefer a private area, be sure to request it in advance.

The artist will prep your skin, then apply a stencil or draw the design on your skin so you can review it and make any final changes. Then, the artist will tattoo the design with needles inserted into the skin. Though the process will hurt, most artists agree the first minute is the worst.

How long does a tattoo take to heal?

A tattoo takes up to 6 months to fully heal, though your skin will go through several stages of healing during that time.

  • At week 2, the tattoo may begin to itch as it flakes and scabs.
  • In weeks 3 and 4, a layer of dry skin will form over the tattoo before exfoliating itself, and the itchiness will fade. Redness and itching at this stage may be an early sign of an infected tattoo.
  • After the first month, all itchiness and redness should be gone, but the skin below your tattoo may continue repairing itself for up to six months.

How do I choose the best tattoo shop near me?

Follow these tips to select the right tattoo artist for you:

  • Decide what style of tattoo you want. Look for artists who specialize in that style.
  • Ask for recommendations from friends and family.
  • Read reviews on Fash and Google.
  • Browse tattoo artists' portfolios of designs similar to yours.
  • Look for licensed, certified tattoo artists.
  • Choose the tattoo placement.
  • Meet with the artist for an initial consultation to discuss your ideas and vision for the design.
  • Confirm the shop is clean and sanitary and the staff is professional.

What questions should I ask tattoo parlors?

Ask the tattoo artist these questions before deciding who to hire:

  • How long have you been tattooing?
  • Are you licensed and certified?
  • Which styles do you specialize in?
  • Can I see your portfolio?
  • Which placement would you recommend for this design, and why?
  • How do you sanitize your equipment?
  • What aftercare routine do you recommend?
  • What deposit do you require?
  • Do you guarantee your work? What happens if you make a mistake in my design?
