  1. Um, well not everyone’s rich and they can’t estimate tattoo pricing so I don’t see the issue of seeing what can be done for cheaper & a question regarding the time duration of the tattoo is just normal :/

  2. Tattoos take time and the artist needs time to put everything together I’ve spent about 4K on just one sleeve and to me the cheaper the tattoo the worse the design good artist never compromise on they’re talent.

  3. Dear precious one, please repeat after me with your whole heart, "Father God, I'm a sinner and I ask for Your forgiveness. I believe Jesus Christ is Your Son. I believe in the Good News that Jesus died on the cross for my sins and that You resurrected Him from the dead in order to restore my relationship with You. Through my belief and faith in Jesus death, burial and resurrection, I am saved.

    I want to trust Jesus as my Savior and follow Him as my Lord from this day forward. Please guide my life and help me do Your will, Your way through the Holy Spirit. This I pray in the powerful, loving and glorious name of Your Son, Jesus Christ my Lord and Savior. Amen!" 🙏

    Dear friend, may Father God our Creator, through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior bless you, lead you, guide you and keep you in His abundantly loving care now and for all eternity! Amen! ❤️🙏❤️

  4. “Can i get a bonus?”
    Honestly tattooing is a service and not a good. Respect the artist’s time and schedule and investment in getting to the level they’re at

  5. Kinda common since not to ask for cheaper prices or asking when it’s done, the artist come up with their prices based on the size of the tattoo, time it’ll take to tattoo and over the quality work.

  6. I can’t lie when I got in the chair I started sweating and I told the tattooist I was sweating in case they got a bad idea thinking of it now I really did mess up🤣

  7. Maybe you shouldn't stick a microphone in a tattoo artist face while they're working on somebody because that person is paying for their time… Just putting that out there.

  8. I would say that something you should never say is after they already put the ink In your body I probably say you messed up that line it's crooked

  9. My first tattoo was one of Sailor Jerry's last tattoos. I remember flinching and he asked "what's the matter?" I said 'Man that hurt's". He replied " Well if it stops hurting, let me know and we'll stop and start over." Late '72, Hotel Street, Honolulu, HI. Good times.

  10. “What can i get for cheaper” is not bad when it’s phrased politely. Some clients really have a budget in mind, so when they come in for consult that’s when they can ask about price. But yeah, asking after the tattoo is done is douchey

    Zechariah 4:6
    "Not by MIGHT nor by POWER, but by MY SPIRIT,’ says the LORD of Armies (Me 😎 to 😡)!"

    Philippians 4:13
    “I can do ALL things through Christ which STRENGTHENETH me!”

    John 1
    "Every branch in me that beareth NOT Fruit he taketh away: and every branch that beareth Fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring forth more Fruit."

    "ABIDE  IN ME, and I in you. As the branch CANNOT bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me."

    "I AM  THE VINE, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth MUCH Fruit: for without me ye can do nothing."

    "If a man abide NOT in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them INTO THE FIRE, AND THEY ARE BURNED!"

    "If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and IT SHALL BE BE DONE unto you!"

    "Herein is my Father GLORIFIED, that ye bear MUCH FRUIT; so shall ye be MY DISCIPLES!"

    "As the Father hath loved me, so have I loved you… Continue ye in my love."

    "These things have I spoken unto you, that my JOY might remain in you, and that your JOY might be FULL."

    "This is MY COMMANDMENT, That ye love one another, as I have loved you."


    "Henceforth I call you NOT SERVANTS; for the servant knoweth not what his LORD doeth: but I have called you FRIENDS; for ALL THINGS that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you."

    "Ye have not chosen me, but I have CHOSEN YOU, and ORDAINED YOU, that ye should go and bring forth Fruit, and that your Fruit should REMAIN: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you."

    "If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you."

    "If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have CHOSEN YOU out of the world, therefore the world hateth you."

    "Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is NOT greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also."

    "But all these things will they do unto you for my name's sake, because they know not him that sent me."

    "But when the COMFORTER (The Holy Ghost) is come, whom I will SEND UNTO YOU from the Father, even the Spirit of Truth, which proceedeth from the Father, HE SHALL TESTIFY OF ME!"
