During these tough economic times and with people getting laid off everywhere, that tattoo industry has seen a bit of a slow down. Mainly, because people do not have that extra spending money that they once had. However, there are a few ways you can get around that high tattoo cost and still get a pretty descent tattoo. For starters, you should be aware that you get what you pay for when it comes to a tattoo.

The first step that you can take to get an affordable tattoo is, by simply getting an initial tattooed somewhere on your body in black ink. Remember that black ink tattoos tend to be cheaper than the color ink tattoos. The second, suggestion for an affordable but good tattoo would to get a four leaf clover or shamrock somewhere, or a little star. Remember the smaller the tattoo and the less detail that is involved the cheaper the tattoo will be. By getting a tattoo of any of the following should not jeopardize the quality of your tattoo, mainly because they are small. Another really good idea for an affordable tattoo would be a number or specific date.
Just remember you can get around paying close to $100 for a tattoo if you pick your tattoo design wisely. Also please note that some of these suggestions may still cost around $50, but that is considered cheap in the tattoo industry. So if you are a tattoo lover and want to add a tattoo to your growing collection or are a first time tattooer, keep these suggestions in mind to help from breaking the bank when getting inked.
