How much would you tip an artist?

Recommended Posts

So what do people think is an acceptable tip, both from a client's and an artist's point of view.

Also, would you tip after each session for a big tattoo which would take numerous sessions, would that influence the size of the tip, etc.

It's been mentioned by the mods to not mention tips here

oh well, I guess that's the end of this thread then.

Best advice I can give you is tip what you feel is best.

Also remeber in general the tipping culture is different country to country reglardless of the service being provided

    • I guess I was just a bit worried as I don't remember any of my other Tattoos healed this way. Feeling the bumpiness especially after all the peeling got me concerned I guess. I am dry healing it now. Perhaps it was me over moisturizing it but I didn't expect for it to become raised and itchy like it did.   
    • To me this is the most fun part of the process: It sounds like your artist knows what they're doing and has skills.    You sound like you've got some ideas on what direction to take things, but nothing super specific yet. What I do (the fun part) is come up with a list of wants:  "It needs to have a woman, and I want it to be a portrait or full body or whatever",  "I want her to be sitting/standing/holding something".  And then things I don't want: "I don't want her to appear angry/happy/smiling", "I don't want her to be in a forest" Usually you can draw a lot of inspiration by looking up other tattoos, and including the things you like/dislike about them into your own ideas.  Trim the lists down to something reasonable for your artist, and then let them implement it in a way they think is best. It's usually a total surprise until you get to the studio, but if you did a good job defining what you want, the artist should encompass a good portion of it in their own style in a way that they know will work.  Showing up day of and seeing what they've come up with is the best part.
    • You got me wrong actually. He didn't mean that he doesn't want to tattoo what do I want. As long as I said "Woman portrait" he joked about the one with the head dress but I never wanted it LOL. It was a mistake by me writing down that sentence in that way, I apologize for that (my english is not good so yeah, here we go.).  Thank you about the 10 posts.
