Believe it or not tattoo artist have the right to say no when it comes to tattooing someone. However, this usually doesn’t happen too often but certain tattoo artist do refuse to tattoo certain tattoos, mainly racial tattoos, hate tattoos or gang tattoos. Tattoo artist also have the right to not tattoo a certain part of your body. If an artist says no, than you have to respect that and come up with an alternate plan or find an artist that will tattoo the body part you want tattooed.
Strangely enough some tattoo artists feel so strongly about not tattooing a certain body part that they will indeed turn down the business. So one may wonder what’s the big deal. Some tattoo artist feel that having a facial tattoo or tattoo on your hands or neck is a big responsibility and they don’t to be held responsible for their client not being able to get a job down the road or the ridicule they will have to deal with from society so some artist just refuse to do it. Also some artist don’t like tattooing feet and hands because its a quality issue. Hand and feet tattoos don’t hold up as well as other tattoos because they are constantly going through physical “abuse” because those are the two ares of your body that are under the greatest amount of physical “abuse” as a result of normal everyday life. So some artist feel its a waste of their work, they are also aware of those tattoos needing to be touched up more often than a tattoo on your ankle, back, leg or arm.
So if you run into this problem with your tattoo artist don’t get mind just try to understand they are passionate about their work.
