    $225 for the top third.

    Edit, probably $175 actually, lots of black up there.
    Go with a good artist for black and white and you will get your detail for the same cost.

    You are gonna get the best price if you make an appointment and give them it before hand. They tend to overprice walk-ins a lot. But i think it will be less then 500 if i had to guess. Awesome choice by the way.

    Most shops are charing by the hour for a large piece. For some of the best shops around me are $125 an hour.

    Remember you can always do it in stages. Get it drawn in first, then shade it in later. Ink costs money. If you do have it done in steps try to get the same artist to do it, and make sure he is good. Don't go for the cheapest artist, you can do a search on google to find out what happens when you do.

    .
    There is a lot of small detail work that may not be possible to reproduce with a tattoo, it's also a style of work that isn't done by every artist. A lot of the more prominent artist have websites now, if I were you, I would spend time researching artists online to try to find someone who's style suits what you want. At the same token, depending on how big you want that piece, it will not be cheap. That is high end tat work, and, IF it can be done, it will have to be big to get as much detail as possible and it could run well over a grand.
