Default Tattoo artists following me on instagram

I have an instagram account just to follow some tattoo artists i like. I got no photo's, no video's, nothing on it. But for some reason a tattoo artist and a tattoo studio are following me.. Why? Am I just being too paranoid and should take a chill pill?

Yes, you are being paranoid and should take a chill pill.

They are just trying to get you to follow them. They saw that you liked some tattoo related pics, or that you follow other tattoo artists, so they followed you in hopes that you would look at their account (I bet it worked) and then maybe give them a follow.

They use it as a way for you to notice them, check their work and then follow them and then they unfollow you, probably how he got several of those 13.5k lol. Don't be surprised if they unfollow you shortly.

Yeah definitely just a way to get you to notice them. I get artists following me all the time, I always check out their work and if it's good i'll usually give them a follow back. Unless it's a style i'm not too fond of.
Most of the people I follow on Instagram are Tattoo Artists so I assume they just see that i'm following so and so or that I liked a post and followed me. It's no biggy.

It's just marketing. You can chill.
