Smaller, less intricate designs will usually range from $50 to $100 while larger, more detailed pieces may be anywhere from $150 – $400 or more.

How painful is a jalapeno tattoo?

Getting a jalapeno tattoo is relatively painful, as it involves the insertion of ink into the dermis—the second layer of skin. Many people report feeling a sensation similar to an elastic band being snapped against their skin. The level of pain you may experience can change depending on your individual pain threshold and where on the body you plan to get the tattoo. Areas like the arms, legs, and chest tend to be less painful than areas around the feet, hands, or ribcage. Additionally, if you are particularly sensitive to pain, there are numbing creams available to help reduce discomfort during your session.
