Default Any idea how long this tattoo would take?

Hi

I really want to get a sugar skull tattooed on the top of my thigh. I want it about 5-6 inches in height. I was just wondering if any of you knew how long this might take?

Every artist works at a different speed. I could see that taking anywhere from 4-9 hours. Also, I think the one in the picture is bigger than 5-6 inches.

And it's not that well done either.

That looks a lot bigger than that to me, too.

Also, this isn't a very good tattoo.

Oh, I really like it I was hoping I could have a scaled down version. I'm only 5ft 2, and I just want it at the top of my thigh, so that when I wear shorts, you can kind of see some of it. I don't ant it to take up the whole of my thigh.

2 tattoo shops have told me I'm probably looking at about 2-3 hours, but that is just the skull, not the flowers. Another has said including the flowers, I'm probably looking at 7 hours, and I would need it to be bigger than 4-5 inches to be able to capture the details.

Yep, if you want all that in some better version you are looking bigger than 5-6 inches. The skull itself should at least be 5-6in. And go to a good shop and listen to the artist rather than saying you want exactly like on the picture because as everybody else already said, that is not a well executed tattoo. No matter if you like it or not, doesn’t make the quality of the tattoo any better.

If you want a 5-6 inch tattoo that's fine but you need a different design so it will actually work
