      I agree! I don't mind tipping people like waitresses or the dudes that take my luggage. But I get so sick of tipping people like my hair lady or tattoo artists that probably make more than I do on salary alone lol

        yes! i would tip if you feel they do a really good job and especially if it is someone you will go back to. i would say 15% is prob good.

        (i didn't read what anyone else wrote b/c i didn't want to get influenced LOL)

          I tipped my guy like $20 for each time- i guess only if you're happy with the work though.

              I've always tipped. I don't know anyone that doesn't tip for ink.

                I tipped. They even had a sign that said "tipping is not a place in China" but before I went I called a friend who's dh is a tattoo artist and he said it's customary to tip.

                  I would give him $10 bucks. I have tipped with my tattoos buut they were always a good deal from a friend of a friend so I just thought it was nice to do.

                    I have always tipped on my tattoos. Yes they may be getting what seems like a lot of money, but you have to consider a lot of that pays for ink, machines, autoclave use for sterile needles, and various supplies (paper towels, ointment etc) That stuff adds up quick... plus I think of my tattoos as pieces of fine art, call the tip a delivery charge on art
