Price will always vary from shop to shop. For a small tattoo with little or no color other than an outline you would expect to pay anywhere from 50 to 125 just depending on the detail, shading, colors, etc...(that's Nebraska though).
Do your research to find a reputable artist. Check out other people's experiences online. Before you get the tattoo...check out the shop. Ask to see the portfolio of the artist who will be doing the tattoo. Most shop's have all their artists books sitting somewhere that clients can sit down and look through them. The Alliance of Professional Tattooists has a website that you can check out artists and shops that are members of their organization (a google search should bring them up).
Good Luck with your tattoo! Could you tell us what you had in mind for your design? You'll have to post pics when you get it done
