Question Price for a small 4 letter name

Before Xmas, I had the name Jess on my forearm. The letters are only a cm in height and the name is an inch long. It was done by an apprentice and the shop owner charged my 5. Two weeks ago I went back and had the name Dean at the exact same size. This time, the owner charged 25 even though this too was done by an apprentice. I'm very quiet and shy so didn't like to question them over it but do you think I've been ripped off? By the way, this studio charges by the design and not hour.

Any tattoo that was 25 was not a rip off. It probably cost him that much in set up and supplies to do your tattoo. You paid a really low rate both times because the apprentice needs experience. 25 is how much your aftercare products are supposed to cost, not your tattoo.

Are you happy with how it came out? If you got a tattoo you like for 25 you should be happy.
