There is usually a minimum cost, ranging between $50-70, even if your tattoo is tiny. I'm on my phone so my guess on size is likely wrong, but I would assume you're looking at around $100-150 plus a tip.
As far as pain, your back shouldn't hurt that bad. Anything over bone with little fat [shoulder blade, spine] will hurt more. I only have one tattoo on the inside of my wrist, didn't hurt at all. I have a friend with tattoos everywhere [arms, legs, chest, neck, hands, shoulders, back] and he said what hurt the most was the inside of his upper arm.
Just remember to get a GOOD artist! Look at their portfolio, make sure you like what they've done, and avoid the cheapest one. You don't want an obviously cheap tattoo your whole life.
Just a warning, tattoos are addicting. =]
