It all depends on the artist, size, color and detail. I would shop around to find a really good artist first, check out his or her work. I had a bait and switch happen to me at a shop in Boston with two artists and i will never go back and tell my friends or anyone asking not to go there. It is deceptive and dishonest. Make sure the tattoo is exactly what you want and dont let anyone talk you out or into something else.
