Default Question for Tattoo Artists! Please help

Hello, I have a quick question for Tattoo Artists or Artists running a studio. So....

The 'owner' of the studio is classed as a 'boss' and the artists that work for the owner (who give a percentage) are self employed right?
So if one of the artists (who is self employed) ...says for example, catches a bad flu (legit) and needs to take 2 days of work to get better, so they re-book their clients successfully, they never take the mickey with days off and they work hard all the time...

Is it acceptable for the owner to then say 'you better owe me those days back' (meaning you need to make up for those two ill days- on your days off work and come in)

I'm just wondering how other tattoo studios work, do other studios do this? Or does the artist (being self employed) have the right to have two days of work to recover from the flu. (without having to make up for them doing over time)

Thank you

Technically the studio has lost two days money (as has the artist) However, any studio/boss that can't afford to lose those and treats you this way is not someone I'd be happy to work for.
