Junior Artist

  • Hourly $165

All estimates are indicative only and can vary based on the final design and placement at the discretion of the tattooist.

Tattoos are charged per hour from the moment the tattoo machine touches the skin. However, in the event stencils need to be resized, replaced and taken longer than normal it is at the desertion of the tattoo artist to charge for this time.
