What exactly do you tip? A percent of the total tattoo? I know it mind be unheard of to some pople but I've heard it's a standard custom....I'm looking to get a piece soon that I was quoted $250. What would an appropriate tip be for that?
I never know what to tip. I've been tipping $10 for every hour of work
Yeah I had no idea you were suppose to tip lol
Mine solely depends on who's doing it. The girl who usually does mine, I tip her 25-30% of the total price, but she has always been fairly reasonable with pricing so I don't mind nearly as much.
One of my mom's last tattoos was around $250 and I believe she tipped $40-$50.
My tattoo took about 5 minutes and it was 40$ so i didn't tip... But, if it was going to take multiple hours i would tip a good amount..Sitting that long in one position has to kill their backs and wrist.
For $250... around $40. I'm doing 3-4 hour sessions (45 hours total), but the sessions are about $400 a pop, and I'm tipping around $30. The tip doesn't sound like much, but it'll add up.
I tip 20% for tattoos and piercings.
I do 10% plus if I think they deserve more for their work. One time, the guy did an amazing job and the piece was really large but he only charged me $150, so I gave him a $50 tip. I had one session that was $250, I only tipped her $25
I tipped mine 40 bucks for Zoe's tattoo which was only 100, but he gave us a good deal. I always tip REALLY well though. If they know you'll tip well, they'll usually charge you better prices. After shop fees, the tips are where they get decent money.
