    i know you are supposed to tip the tattoo artist when you get some ink done but are you supposed to tip the piercer if you get something pierced?

    just wondering, cause i'm gonna get an industrial done some time thursday and want to know if tipping them is normal?

    thanks,

    J

    I always tip like 10-20. I get all mine done from friends. Always tip the piercer.

    What is the point? Aren't they sole proprietors (or the equivalent within a shop)?

    Basically, employees who can set their own price should not be tipped.

    I didn't tip the artist who did my tattoo and he didn't say anything. We negotiated a price and that's it.

    It doesn't always work like that. I wasn't allowed to set my own prices at my shop. My boss (the owner) did and I got a percentage of that. Tips help out and are much appreciated.

    Not tipping is pretty stingy. If you dig the work done, then by all means tip.

    I didn't when I was younger...because I couldn't but now yes. I haven't had anything pierced in at least 10 years but I've gone into a local place a few times for help stretching and I did tip.
