What does that have to do with tipping a tattooist?If they do a good job I like to tip.They appreciate it and it goes towards developing a relationship with the artist especially if you plan on getting more
thats the key. you find someone that does good work and that you can trust

So the dude I use charges 100 per hour.  He usually does 4 hour sessions at I time and I would give him an extra 100 as a tip.  Thats 25%.  It's quite a bit, but if you are happy with the work, and want to get more done that's not too much.  Mine took like 13 hours, so I wanted dude to be happy lol.  Anyhow if its something small that costs you like 75 bucks 25% tip on that is ok as well.  As long as you like the work.

basically yeah in the sense that...if you don't wanna tip the guy that is currently tattooing you...then don't go to him again.

but if you like them and want their work again, tip 'em.

Yeah, a tip's a good look, shit I felt terrible after I found out you should. So after that, I thought I ain't goin' back there. It's embarrassing, LOL. But I mean, if it's somethang small, do you really, if it don't require personal artistry?

I don't own a digital camera, so I lose.


But I'm mainly talking about lettering, writing. I mean you giving him the text font and words, and all they doin' is puttin' it to the skin and tracing and coloring, basically.

So how you tip that?

Mines mainly costs around $60. That's the hourly rate.

Doesn't take any longer than 25 minutes.

But if your gettin' artwork and portraits, etc., thangs that put personal touch and effort too or anythang costin' madd hours, I could understand the tip.

You understand where I'm coming from word? Propz back course too.

Various writing, words, on my arms, neck, torso. Put it on your torso, it means it's 'always on your side.' Put it around the collar bone cuz it's a 'pain in the neck'. LMAO.


Nahhh, haha..but a 25 dollar tip? What was that for? Writing too?

See I only had a 20 dollar bill and I didn't know if that was too much to give dude when I got my neck done, cuz it's small, took approximately like 6 or 7 minutes.
