    I'm going to be getting my first tattoo most likely this weekend (friday or saturday) and was wondering how much of a tip I'm "supposed" to give? Is there a certain percantage that I should give? or is it totally up to me? I'm not sure how much the tattoo will cost as I need to go to the tattoo place tomorrow and get a price estimate... Any Tips/Suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.

    I would say atleast $25 for ever $100 charged. If not over $100, $25 is still a good tip.

    I tipped 100% for my two i payed for. My guy does fast work, gives me just what i want and will put me before random people.

    Found out the tat I'm getting will be around $300-$325... so a tip of like $75-$100 would be good?
     
  6. I always tip at least 50% to my guy... which may be why I am broke all the time... It gets pricey when I'm doing 4 and 5 hour sittings.

    The best tip I ever received was 250 bucks for a 250 dollar tattoo, I love my job:big grin:
    But a twenty dollar tip, is great, if the artist does a great job, if He's an asshole, no tip.
