Default What are the day rates of these artists?

Wondering if anyone knows?

Dean Taylor
Edgar Ivanov
Little Nick

And any other top portrait artists other than Ryan Evans?

Cheers

There has been a bit of a shift and many charge above the 500 - 600 it was a couple of years ago. Some are asking 1,000 a day. A lot of artists charge by the hour and don't have a day rate. I know for new clients Meehow is 150 an hour, Phatt German 120. Not everyone has upped their prices though. Pete the Thief is 90 an hour and has been for years and Dris Donnelly asks 400 for a day.

Dean Taylor, John Anderton, Aimee Cornwell were all 600. I know that's what Aimee still charges.

Thomas Pollard is also in my opinion up there as one of the best portrait artists in the UK. He did a portrait of my Dad for me and I'm still blown away by it. Search through my posts and you'll see..

Thomas Pollard is very talented and i have been following him for years.

Don't forget Meehow.

His work is awesome but think he charges £1,000 a day now also. Maybe even more.

Meehow costing 1,000 a day is something that he's happy to talk to clients about. He will tell you it's not true. He says he charges 150 an hour and willl usually tattoo for about six hours, so 900. I've been up there twice and I'm not sure how much he charges to be honest. You pay a big deposit, 400. I did 7 hours and on the next visit about 6 hours. The money he asked for wasn't really consistent, but it was nowhere near 1,000. I think he probably charges per piece and considers other factors, like how he's feeling that day, or if he likes you. I think Meehow is great and I can't recommend him highly enough.

E-mail from them (see below)

Hi Mark,

It sounds like nice idea.
Where you would like to placed this design?

First available slots we have in August.
Meehow charge £150 per hr / £1000 for portrait tattoo.

To secure tattoo appointment/s £400 deposit is required and it will be taken of your last session as a part of the total cost.


Please let me know if I can help with anything else or if you wanna book free consultation with Meehow.


Meehow does his consultations Mon-Sat from 9:00-11:00 if you’re interested.
If yes, just let me know please, when would be the most convenient day for you to pop in and I’ll try to find a free space.


Thanx
Ola
