It does not always have to be an entire studio for every tattoo artist: a popular model that has long been standard in the United States is the so -called chair rental.

  • Let us assume that 2 pots of black tattoo paint from the salon's range were consumed. In this case, the tattoo artist simply weighs the filling weight of his color heads with water (1 milliliter of water = 1 milligrams) and compensates for it proportionately from the purchase price. With 10 consumed ML from a bottle with 100 ml tattoo paint, 10 % of the purchase price must be billed.
