Default How much is too much to pay for an hourly rate

I don't mind paying high hourly rates to collect from top artists but man I just found out an artist just raised his rate from 250 usd to 300usd(275euros) I think I reached my limit I have such a hard time paying for someone who charges that much for a tattoo.
Especially if the artist who raised his rate just tattooed u for 250usd per hr.

How about u guys when do u stop and say this is just too much money?

I would make an exception for prob nikko hurtado

Like anything, it's only worth what you are willing to pay.If you can't afford it or think they're out of order for charging so much, don't pay it. I work in retail, and I'm often perplexed when people want to buy reduced items but they need to know how much it was before. Does it matter? Whether it was 10 or 5, it'll cost you 3, all you need to ask yourself is 'is this worth 3?'

If you can afford it and you think their work is worth it, go for it. But only you can really decide. Who is it, by the way?

its jose perez jr.my step dad wanted sth from him seeing that i just got tattooed by him a few months ago , i enquired for him. i find it strange that although i paid 250an hr less than two months ago my step dad would have to pay 300 an hr.

true i know its only worth it if u really want it, i was curious to c where everyones ceiling was at.

Wow I wouldn't pay 300 for Jose. He is a great artist but there are tons of artists on his caliber or higher that are cheaper. Unless he is as fast as Duffy or Grace. I told myself I would never pay more than 300 per hour, but that quickly went out the window with Shige and Robert Hernandez

My max is about half that. There's too many good artists out there charging around 1k for a day that I just don't see the value in going higher.

I've always said the most I'd pay is 800 a day. Jak Connolly is coming dangerously close to that but I imagine I'll pay more some day! Hoping to get a couple of big appointments sorted next year!

I felt the same way, phil Garcia, carlos Rojas, Timothy boor,ad pancho, domantas,, fernie Andrade, haha the list could go on and on who r not charging 300 an hr. So that's what kind of made me want to post this.

Oh haha true! I forgot about that with nikko, the time I got tattooed by rojas when I left nikko was still going and it was already like 930 or 10 stars night. He seemed nowhere near done 😂

Grace and Duffy charge 300an hr??
