Smile Advice needed re:guests in studio

Hi, my husband and i are about to open a tattoo studio and have a few artists looking to guest at some point, can anyone provide feedback on the courtesy regarding guesting, what is expected of us and visa versa?

I would be really grateful of any advice/support.

Thank you

When we have guest artists, we would provide kitchen roll, razors,green soap etc and day to day disposables. They'll be using your sharps bins and stuff also so it's usually fair to ask for a rental charge for the chair. Anything like equipment should be brought by the artist though

thank you, what about accomodation etc? do they sort that out for themselves, and would your guests normally expect to be advertised and booked up for their time with you?

Yeah advertise the hell out of them! If they're coming from quite a distance away, they likely won't be bringing anyone to tattoo so they'll need some clients to work with srtaight away who can be booked in, in advance. As for accomodation, just ask. In the past, we've had a couple even stay with us at home(if you know them well enough and comforatble with that) Otherwise, try and give a list of reasonable b&bs in easy distance unless they prefer to find their own
