Default Anyone have a ballpark estimate / knowledge of Tristen Zhang current rate?

Kinda what it says in the title, i'm thinking about something along the lines of this:

but struggling to find a going hourly rate for Tristen, all I know was that it's pretty high

Weighing up if I could go for it depending on his rate / how long his arm pieces take

Here's what I received from Chronic Ink regarding Tristen in the summer of 2015 (these are Canadian dollar amounts, tax is additional 13%):

"Tristen charges $300/hour and does about 3-4 hours a session, you'll just pay based on the number of hours done that day, plus tax. He usually needs about 24-30 hours for a full sleeve roughly but it also depends on detail and if it's color or black & grey. The most we can book in a row is three days in a row.

A deposit of $350 + HST is required to book an appointment, which comes off the price of the final session. The deposit can be paid over the phone using a credit card which secures the date. "

Thanks for the reply! So i'd probably be looking at a minimum of £4500, damn
His work speaks for itself so I can't really fault him on price.
Maybe in a couple years time lol!

7200 for a sleeve, you’d hope he works fast.

Anytime someone mentions Canada I just zone out and start thinking about all the cool wrestlers...

It's about $5500 which isn't too bad for a sleeve honestly. I'm paying similar for my left arm and probably going to end up spending a bit more on my right.
