Feel like my tattoo artist is ripping me off? (Time wise)

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, let me start off by saying I don't know much about tattoos..I started a half sleeve..portrait of a roman goddess that is fairly realistic and detailed. My artist got the leg and part of the statue done in about 5 hours. I thought he took his time a bit (I am being charged for the hour) but I didn't question it too much. Just wondering what your thoughts were. Does the progress on my sleeve look like it took about 5 hours? Thanks!

Well, the work isnt bad, but I'm confused to why he didnt at least grayline the majority of the tattoo. I charge $150 an hour, which is standard around my parts. Doesnt seem like a lot of work for 5 hours. At best thats about $300 worth of a tattoo...but different regions, different prices.

 

Where are you?

Do you have a photo of the design image? I'd like to see where he's going with this. It's an unusual chunk of the image to do for the first session. And like adm said, why wouldn't he plan out a complete image before detailing a foot?  I am by no means a fast tattooer; and that would be about two hours...with the rest of the figure graylined.

Like the others said need to see the rest of the design 

how long did he spend designing it for you?
