Don’t Bargain With A Tattoo Artist

This is probably one of the most important things to know and never to do when it comes to getting a tattoo. You absolutely do not want to try and bargain with your tattoo artist. First of all they will more than likely take great offence to this and it will also make them a little angry. You just have to face the facts tattoos are going to be expensive and there is no way of getting around that. The only time you should even consider asking for some sort of discount is if you know them very well or you are very close friends with them.

Keep in mind a tattoo artist doesn’t get to keep the full amount of money that you are spending for the tattoo. They only get to keep a percentage of that. Plus just like the old saying goes you get what you pay for. So if you try to bargain with an artist he may or may not do his best work because you offended him.  If you want a good quality tattoo be sure to never and I mean never try to haggle the price with them. After all if you were ate at a restaurant and you didn’t like how much your bill was you wouldn’t sit there and try to bargain with the waiter or manager just to get your bill lower. So the same principle applies to a tattoo. Just come to terms with the fact that you are going to have to spend a pretty penny to get a good quality tattoo.  If you can’t afford to get one than get out of the tattoo studio or get something that is fairly small and doesn’t have much detail in it.
