When it comes to getting inked, it can get pretty expensive — especially when you have something large and highly stylized. Sometimes we want to get something simple and sweet, but most shops have a minimum price they charge for their time on a small piece. Sometimes we don't even know what we want at all; just that we want some new ink!
