    Dude does nice work. ...if you can deal with his hippy dippy "I'm an artist who's like totally into artistry and it's all about the art and the artist's artistic endeavor for the love of art" way about him for long enough to get it done.

    Damn really look at that $875 tattoo though... I would have been disappointed. Look at those lines and look at those gear teeth... There all uneven and different... Dunning Kruger effect allowed this tattoo to cost that much.

    $875 for 6 hours is actually not expensive at all...there are local artists near me with 300-400$ hourly minimums. Could have done better research.

    Tbh given the sizes of these tattoos it doesn’t feel like the price is changing that much. The $400 tattoo was easily 4x as big as the $100 one

  • GamerGirl X
    GamerGirl X 12 days ago

    My tattoo artist charges $150 per hour. I only get big pieces so $800+ is norm then I always tip generously because she pours a lot of thought and effort into the piece. To this day, 9 pieces later, I am still in love with every single piece. If it's going to be on your body forever, you need to find a good artist and be willing to invest in it. (The longest session I've had is 13 hours with 2 10 minutes break in between)

    The artist who did the $80 tattoo, would probably give you the best $800 piece you have ever seen. But, the dude from speakeasy tattoo actually puts a lot of thought into it. And I like how the consultation works. Pausing the video however, and studying his work, I believe that even though the 80 dollar tattoo was the most simple, it was also executed the best. $80 FTW

    Personally I think the $400 piece didn’t flow well at all with the rest of the 1/2 sleeve. The stars were perfect & the final piece was a masterpiece!! $875 was worth it!!

  • comandosespeciales

    I feel like the last guy is a really good artist, but his tattooing skills are not on par with his drawing or painting skills. His designs and the paintings in his studio are amazing, but the lines in that tattoo were kind of wobbly. I think it'd be better if he designed the tattoos and had someone else transfer them into the skin until his tattooing is more confident.

  • David perez
    David perez Month ago +17

    I've been tattooing for 12 years...that speakeasy tattoo was totally not worth $875...why? Because #1. The tattoo does not look anywhere near technically sound...the lines look shakey...the eye does not look realistic at all and #2 any shop could've created a a totally custom piece like that...theres no reason at all that u should go to a guy that "supposedly" has a year long waiting list (but was able to conveniently fit u in within 24 hours...classic tattoo artist gimmick) if I was doing that tattoo I could've created a better looking idea...a better looking "original" drawing and over all a better looking tattoo and the price range would've been $450
