WHAT IS THE BEST WAY TO GET AN ACCURATE QUOTE?
When giving quotes, the following is taken into consideration:
- Size of the tattoo
- Placement on the body
- Colour use
- Detail of the tattoo
You could either book a consultation with the artist to discuss the above mentioned or include it in your appointment request. It is impossible for us to give you a quote over the phone, all quotes given are estimates. We have a shop minimum of R600 and we charge R1000 – R1200 per hour on big pieces. Hourly rates only apply to big projects.
