[for my boss] I need advice on tattoo price ranges.

One of my bosses is getting her first tattoo, and as the official "young person" in the office I am the confidant and advisor. She's getting it done in Vegas, not
on the strip (in about a month). She's getting essentially a rose with the autism ribbon
around it. Tattoo artist is drawing it. This'll be on the back of her shoulder.
She was asked by her artist what her price range is. As I got all of mine drawn by friends, I'm not sure how to go about valuing it. She's willing to spend $400 without too much hassle, and if it's super-fantastic up to $500, but isn't sure if that's way too high for the piece in question or not.
Any advice, both on total-cost-of tattoo and how to discuss ranges properly?
