Every tattoo situation is going to be different.
If you would like a consultation, it is free, and with no strings attached.
A consultation is merely a studio visit. It is also easier to give you an accurate estimate after having met you and discussed with you what you really want. Please feel free to bring any imagery or reference materials you like, with you to your consultation.
Consultations and tattooing are at:
Hoboken Body Art
107 10th Street
Hoboken, NJ 07030
Follow H.B.A's guidelines as to leaving a deposit. I can give you a price, either flat-rate or by the hour, once we have met, and once I know what kind of tattoo you want and where.
After consulting with me, then if you do not wish to get tattooed or make an appointment, THAT IS FINE. This is what I mean by “No Strings Attached.” I don’t want to engage with you unless you’re “All-In”!
Tattoo time is $175.00 per hour. A two hour minimum session for larger pieces is strongly encouraged,
Time is counted when the tattoo machine is running.
I do not charge for time spent drawing on your skin or placing stencils.
If your tattoo requires a custom line drawing, the cost for the drawing itself will vary depending on size and complexity. It is yours to keep, and your drawing will not be repeated, ever, at least not by me.
Freehand tattoos- those drawn on the skin with a marker and then tattooed- do not incur a cost for the time spent drawing on your skin.
Every situation is different. Sometimes freehand is best, sometimes having a pre-drawn pattern is best.
If you have a notion of what you were looking to spend on your tattoo, please do mention it when you have your consultation. I can design something nice for you that doesn’t have to break your bank!
I ONLY TATTOO THOSE WHO ARE 18 YEARS OF AGE AND OLDER. BE SURE AND BRING YOUR DRIVER'S LICENSE OR PASSPORT WITH YOU.
