Being Offered a free or low-cost touch-up doesn’t mean you shouldn’t t take care of your new ink. It also doesn’t mean you’ll definitely need a touch-up. Most Professionals artists will offer a free or low-cost touch-up for your new tattoo. That’s because human skin is a living canvas and its natural reaction to being tattooed can be most of the time unpredictable.
However, being offered a free touch-up doesn’t mean that shouldn’t take care of your new tattoo.
“For me, tattoo touch-ups are complimentary as long as my client has taken care of their new tattoo properly. If went to the beach, pool, hot tub, long day at the gym with lots of sweating or use unclean methods. The day after getting a tattoo and it wrecked the tattoo, that does not count. But if the client does follow the directions, then that does fall into the free touch-up category.
Similar, just because you’re offered a free or low-cost touch-up doesn’t mean your new tattoo will necessarily need it. sometimes even unnecessary touch-ups can interfere with or delaying the normal and natural healing process. Touch-up is only needed in case any part of the tattoo heals differently than expected.
But not all tattoos need a touch-up, so make sure to let your artist take a look always after your work is healed and allow him as a professional to see it and decide if is need it. If you are happy with your tattoo once is healed, then it does not need to be touched up.
Many artists find it extremely rude if you try to haggle the price of a tattoo or even a touch-up section since some large scale work may take different times, a can be sometimes insulting to your artist. Though negotiating the price of some goods and services is normal, haggling with your artist over the cost of a touch-up or a tattoo is typically seen as unacceptable and insulting. “You could not go into a clothing store and suggest that they lower the price of the jeans you want. So do not go into a tattoo studio and ask ur artist to lower the price of the tattoo. This may be insulting to your artist and it can result in your artist refusing to tattoo you.
Many tattoo artists are independent contractors and must pay out-of-pocket for things like health insurance. tattooing supplies and some cases even traveling expenses. The prices they quote to you aren’t arbitrary, they reflect their experience level and also they business cost.
