    I generally tip $20 for every $100 of the tattoo.

    that sounds about right, or like 50 for every 3 hours is still pretty generous. its good to tip esp if your in the middle of the peace and have to come back.

    If I like the artist and go to them often I tip more. For my half sleeve I sat three sessions and tipped between 40-60% each session (in the 60% case, he undercharged me a bit so I tipped more).
