How to Complain About Your Tattoo Artist Properly

Scrap That Work…What Happens When You Hate Your Tattoo?


It happens. You opt for a new tattoo and end up being unhappy with the finished piece.


It’s one thing to go home and complain about it and quite another to voice your opinion and not allow your artist to fix it. Then there are those happy (yet unhappy) customers, and they are really the best to work with.


Here’s how to complain properly…and why.

How did you become a tattoo artist?


I learned from a biker who was also a tattooist. He did freehand work that just looked amazing, I was taken aback by how real tattoos could look. So I started working at a shop and learned the old school way. It wasn’t a traditional apprenticeship like we see now.
