Thank you all for your comments and time my friends. AE, it all depends. When it comes to tattoos, you usually pay for quality. In this day and age, there are a lot of people that give tattoos, licensed or not. Those that are not, they may be great and charge $50-$100 for a decent sized panther. If you go to a professional, you may pay a few hundred more for the same tattoo. But, many don't want to take the chance. They would rather pay a few hundred more for a professional tattoo. It all depends on the size and how long it takes as well. The arm tattoo (last picture) is a beautiful and good sized tattoo. It probably cost $300-$500.
