You can’t price match the experience
Tattooing has been around as long as there have been people, and for much of that history hand-poked tattoos were the only way to put ink in the skin. The history and culture of the craft runs deep, and studying moved to practice following the kind words and direction from several long time artists in Europe.
In a modern revival of the old ways, we tattoo with single use needles attached to chopsticks. We use stencils and freehand designs, staying mainly within simple clean lines and sacred geometry. If you have specific questions about time frame, pain tolerance, or other differences; we would be more than happy to answer your questions in person.
