Price is going to depend on who you go to. You can get it done for $25 or $250 just depends but you definitely get what you pay for. Go to a local shop and ask, if you already have the pic and all they have to do is trace you can probably get a pretty good estimate.

this.

it's going to vary by artist and geographic location. the prices charged in Huntsville, Alabama are probably not the same as those charged in New York City. i also can't imagine an artist throwing a quote over the internet without seeing a picture to know the detail...black outline, black and grey shading, color?

hit all your local shops and look at previous work of the artist and then worry about price

btw, there is no way in hell that i'd get a $25 tattoo

I would recommend search for an artist you like. Visit tattoo forums for recommendations of good artists that specialize in the type of ink you want (tranditional, realistic, b/w, color, etc). Once you find out WHO you want to mark your skin that will be on you for the rest of your life, talk to them about quotes.

As mentioned, you get what you pay for, and a tattoo is not something you should skimp on.

As a very rough estimate, for the size you want, and I assume you want decent detail, I would get ready to pay around 750.

Agreed! For good work, in that size it'll defenitely be $500 to $1K. At the back door of Jimmy's Chicken Shack....a few $100.
