I know it’s hard for clients to guess how much something will cost. I’ve made this page with some tattoos I have made with the rough number of hours something of this size could take (give or take, everything is situational and dependent on content).

As a general estimate full sleeves/ back jobs/ full torsos can take 30 hours or more to complete. Upper arm pieces usually take 6 – 9 hours. One side of a forearm can be a full day 6 hours. The more intricate, detailed, and coloured the tattoo, the longer it will take.

Black cockatoos take a bit longer owing to the amount of black and their larger size & detail in the feathers. They can take 6 – 8 hours for something like this.
Roughly 3 hours. Hand tattoos take longer than other areas as the skin on the hand is harder to work with.
