Can you not go in and give a rough idea of the size you want and then they can give you a rough quote on that. They can't expect you to slap down a deposit without knowing the full cost. Go in and speak to someone, should take 5 mins.
The guy I have talked to on the phone was really strict on the deposit thing for any meetings with the artists. I think I might just do what you suggest and go in to talk to them, maybe they wont be so intense in person. Thanks.
So I get that pricing tattoos has a ton of variables but like holy shit can I just get a ballpark estimation? Am I saving up $100, $500, $1000?!?! I literally have no idea how much this piece is going to cost.
The place that I REALLY want to get mine done at requires a $50 deposit for a consultation, and yeah that’s fine if I end up getting it there but if he draws it up and tells me its going to be like $1000 I’ll have to wait. I don’t have that kind of cash and I don’t want to waste anyone’s time or $50.
