Tips To Perform And Be Able To Quote A Tattoo Correctly

If you have in mind to get a tattoo, and you have no idea how to start, here are some important points to take into account. In addition to a small guide on how to quote correctly so that the information received by both parties (client-tattoo artist) is the most assertive.

Points to take into account when choosing your artist

The first thing we have to point out is that in something as important as a tattoo, the last thing you should worry about should be its price since if the quality of the work justifies it, it makes it something valuable and not expensive.

The second thing we should ask ourselves is; What style of tattoo is the one with which I most identify or like, the following would be to analyze important points such as:

  • The asepsis of the study
  • The professional treatment
  • The assertive information about the tattoo style I am looking for (pros and cons)
  • That the place complies with the measures stipulated by health entities (bio-infectious waste, autoclave sterilization rooms, ultrasonic)
  • The quality of the materials (needles, inks, etc.) That everything is properly sterilized,
  • That the workstation is tidy and properly assembled to avoid cross-contamination (use of plastic, sterile fields, ink cups, clip covers, all disposable)
  • All of these standards are met only in professional tattoo shops in Rome.

Clearly many of these things we will not be able to see from a cell phone or computer, so the recommendation is always to visit the place to be able to take into account all these factors when quoting.

When choosing our artist with a style to our liking, the ideal would always be to review his portfolio, both from recent works (where we can see the treatment of the skin) to completely healthy works (where we can see his technical application and longevity Of the same)

Photographs have the facility to be affected by editing or other similar things, visualizing through video gives you more feedback since it cannot be edited like photography, if what they show you are photographs, the idea is to zoom in to the details to review the line treats the skin, even if you are not an expert you will be able to notice it.

Taking all this into account, we can now quote our new tattoo.

How to price a tattoo correctly?

The ideal, as we said before, is always to visit the store, where you will have the opportunity to talk with an artist who will tell you what is functional and what is not, will present you with size options, and you will be able to team up with him to shape your design. . In Stattoos previous visits have no cost, nor any type of commitment, our mission is to provide help with the necessary information that we have acquired over more than 25 years.

In modern times and adding the current world situation, it is much more common for people to contact through social networks.

This is a double-edged sword because through social networks people cannot visualize everything regarding the quality of the place, so they are guided only based on the price of the work, which is an error as we mentioned at the beginning.

To be able to quote through social networks, several things are necessary, such as:

  • A Reference Image of the tattoo style you would like.
  • Area of ​​the body to perform the work
  • Size in centimeters you would like to cover
  • Changes, doubts, also note if the work is about a scar or a cover-up

The value that is provided by social networks will always be approximate, while if you visit the store you will have a more accurate price.

Works such as sleeves, backs, cover-ups, in general, large-format projects, ideally you should visit the store, to be able to see the composition of the design, analyze its anatomy and based on that work on a personalized design. Generally, this type of work is done by means of payment by hours or sessions.


Working on a personalized design is always going to be better, at Stattoos we always work on your designs based on the references you send us, which guarantees that the work fits exactly to your anatomy.

There are also artist flashes, they are unique piece designs that you can acquire and the artist can attach them to your body, generally, these designs already have an established value and an approximate size to be made

Normally the client is asked for a deposit, which is deductible from the final session, this to create a direct commitment between the client and the artist. This guarantees that the client will have previews of the design, and comment on changes always under the tutelage of the artist who will explain what is functional.

Tattoos tend to spread the ink a bit over time, so if we place a lot of detail together in very small spaces it will not be a job that ages well, minimalist linear works and small details require an impeccable line technique, not everyone can work them well.

There are certain areas of the body that are a bit more complicated for fine lines since the skin is different, and not all needles are for all areas, always listen to the recommendations of the artists in this type of thing since they know how your skin will age worked.

Choosing your Artist is your responsibility as well as supporting people who do not comply with the security measures to be able to serve clients, both in piercing and tattooing.

Always look for the best for your skin, experience and quality are more than price.
