$50/hr is something you need to avoid at all costs. The standard going rate is $160/hr and goes up to like $220/hr. Some artists at the end of the session will just say give me *enter amount here* and it could end up being a discount but will not drop to $50/hr. Might drop like by $20-$30/hr. So with that said, you can do the math. At $50 that's 1/3 the cost.

Regardless, cost is one thing you shouldn't even think about. Don't settle for an artist just because it's cheap. A tattoo is forever and more often than not you do pay for what you get. Do not rush any decision you make. Be open to checking out a few artists and don't just decide on one just because somebody said they are good.

Yeah I already have 1 but that just sounded off $50/hr I've always went with good tattoos ain't cheap and cheap tattoos ain't good. $50/hr sounds so sketch lol I'd never do that

So i'm heading down to Mountain View Cali in late August for Rock The Bells. I wanna check out the local tattoo scene and maybe get a small piece done. Any recommendations for artists in the area?

Check out Adam Sky, he's one of Vancouver's better artists, working in San Fran now

Normally more of a custom work guy, but if he's just starting out maybe he has time for a small piece you're looking for

My favorite realistic pieces by Robert Pho.





I finally booked my appointment with Robert for January and just found out I'll be there during AVN Expo!

Probably my favorite tattoo artist at the moment. Check out his Asian work.

Want to know what makes a timeless tattoo? And why those "animals with tophats" and "mustache on your finger" tattoos will look completely stupid in 10 years?

Hey guys, I've decided I want to get my first tattoo and I figured this would be the best place to ask my questions. I've looked through a few threads and I really like the work James Acrow and Steve Moore do, but I'm guessing the wait list for these guys is pretty long. Can someone confirm this?

I want to get a half sleeve done before I leave for school in september, do you guys think it's possible to get a tattoo of these artists skill finished before that time? I'm pretty set on a B&G piece, but maybe with a little bit of color like the second last one in this gallery http://www.acrow.ca/tattoo.html . Thanks in advance!

You won't get an appointment with those guys by September.. unless you mean 2013

There are other good artists in town, those guys are just the best of the best, world famous types. What style are you thinking of?

Haha yeah I didn't think that'd be possible. I read your FAQ and I really like Jame's Acrow's realistic style, probably something on my forearm. Would it be correct to call it a forearm sleeve? :P
