The salary of a tattoo artist varies from area to area. An artist will charge anywhere between $80-$150 on average, with some charging up to $285 an hour. This seems like a lot, but the expenses for doing the art, getting your name out, shop cut, and so much more, we average about 50 an hour. This also has to play on weather, name and popularity of the shop, season, and so many things. It is really hard to determine how much a tattoo artist makes, but it's safe to bet that we as artists are not having to take on a second job if we are any good...

Tattoo that will cost 3000 how much do I tip the artist at each sitting?

An example, If you pay 1000$ for your tattoo, then the tattoo artist will only get 300$. Next, the tattoo artists will have to buy the tattoo equipment on their own. Needles, inks, machines cost money. And they have to fill the taxes as well. Paying around 20% to 30% is a generous and fair tip for the tattoo. Always think about how much time the tattoo artist spent on making the best masterpiece on your skin. Make sure it is reflected in the gratuity.
