Recession Isn’t Hurting The Tattoo Business

With the horrible shape the economy is in right now people are having to cut back spending on a lot of things they normally wouldn’t think twice about. One would think that a tattoo would fall in this category. But despite the declining economy the tattoo business does not seem to be affected. Some tattoo parlors are actually reporting an increase in business. 

One tattoo parlor in particular in Seattle has seen an increase in business compared to the numbers they were pushing out last year at this time. The only explanation that the workers there have is the their clientele is geared more towards younger, blue collar workers, who haven’t necessarilybeen effected by foreclosures and the lack there of stock market. They also explain that to their clients they feel a tattoo is a worthy investment and it can never be taken away from you no matter how far behind you fall on your bills.

Another explanation that has been given is that a good tattoo cost a good junk of change so this requires an individual to save up for their desired tattoo. Which not only gives them time to think about their design to make sure it is something they want and can live with for the rest of their life but it also keeps the doors to the tattoo parlors open.

In conclusion one may think spending $200 on some body art is a waste of money but its not different than a woman buying a $800 handbag or someone buying a $2,000 mint condition toy that will never be played with. Everyone has a different perspective on what is important to them.
