Tattoo Etiquette: The Do’s and Don’ts
In case any of you are curious of what to do and what not to do at your next visit to the tattoo studio, here are a few reminders. And always remember: Good tattoos aren’t cheap and cheap tattoos aren’t good!
-DO go to the studio with an idea for a tattoo in mind. Impulsive decisions aren’t the best in a permanent situation.
-DO tip your tattoo artist. This is their profession and they only make a percentage of what you pay for your tattoo so your tip is also their salary. 10% minimum, 15-20% is normal and anything more shows a lot of love.
-DO NOT try to negotiate the tattoo price. They are marking you for life. You get what you get and you don’t get upset.
-DO NOT test the tattoo artist to see if they can draw something and never get a tattoo. Do not be that guy!
-DO NOT bring a support team with you or children. If it is a must always ask the artist for permission.
