But really?! So my hamster tattoo was the shop "minimum" I love the shop, they have done the 2 good tattoos I have (Hammy and paper airplane) and was $80 each. Thats the shop's minimum.
 
Well I go in, and all I want is a outline of a puzzle piece the size of a quarter or a nickel..
And its still $80.
 
I know the $80 is the minimum, but I figured they would be nice since I been a good customer for almost 5 years but they say they cant.
 
I am sorry, but I feel like a simple black line the size of a quarter isn't fair to charge nearly $100 for.
 
I really don't want to go to another shop because everytime I do, the person messes up, no matter how good thier profolio is.
 
:/
 
 
If I got a dollar for every time I repented the sin then committed the same crime, I'd be standing on top of the world today...

If they are good. Stay with them. You trust them.

Quality is everything. 80 dollars is alot for an outline but 5 yrs is alot of trust.

Lol, actually the artist who did my paper airplane called me and said he would do it for the "Normal" minimum of $50.
Its still a lot.
 
How much woud I tip for that? When he did my airplane I gave him %25 which ended up being $100.
 
I always tip my piecer there at least 20%
 
But
1. This calls for no real creative talent or artistry
2. If I tip 25% it comes to 62.50 which is a wierd tip of $12.50

if i asked my tattoo guy for that, he would not charge me, just sayin.

80 is a fuckin lot for a minimum.
minimum went out the door for me and my tattoo guy when we got close. i think after five years they would give you a bit of a deal there :S maybe get your money worth and get a couple small things? haha

Well I am close with the piercer and the assistant, but I wouldn't say one tattoo artist, since I have only gotton 2 done from thier.

also, being as its such a simple tattoo, i would find a shop that might charge you less. i wouldnt pay anywhere near 80$ for the tat you described.
