Default price of shop tatts

guy walks in asks price of a tattoo....tribal piece...our price was 150 quid....the guy rolls up his sleeve, half his arm covered in a very poorly done tribal wth shakey lines.

THIS ONLY COST ME 50 QUID AT A HOUSE PARTY.?

sometimes i just laugh....but this guy actually believed his tattoo was a good piece of work.?

some folks are just happy with ink...good or bad....but as long as its cheap...?

my answer....YEAH WE KNOW WHAT OUR WORK IS WORTH.!

Im 15 hours (100/hour) in to my first tattoo, its a 3/4 sleeve by a well known artist whose work I love. When it comes to my weekly shop I'm keen to save as much money as I can and love bargains as much as the next person.

Having said that, when I engage someone to mark my skin forever, I want to ensure that the work is carried out to the highest standard I can possibly afford. If I cannot afford it then it's time to start saving.

Like yourself I honestly find it hard to understand why someone would want to skimp and save on such work.

Would much prefer to pay more for a good piece, but saying that i've seen some terrible artists charge way too much for the quality of work that you get as well
