how long will this tattoo take?

i'm gonna get a tattoo on my upper back of a japanese style dragon & tiger stretching from shoulder to shoulder. my artist said it should take only 3-4 hours.. but that seems a little too quick for a bigger back piece to believe. what do you think?

  • Yep....sounds about right. Im cover in tats. But it depends on the detail of the piece, how many colors and the experience of the artist. If you're trying to factor costs...always add a extra hour in case AND tell your artist your cash limit. Good luck!

  • that sounds right... it also depends on how experienced the tat artist is... i got a little tribal design on my side and it took like 10-15 min....
