Just so, how much do you tip a tattoo artist for a $200 tattoo?
Tattooers don’t necessarily expect to be tipped, but they definitely always appreciate it. As with tipping waitstaff, 15-20 percent is a good standard. So, if you pay $200 for a tattoo, you‘re looking at a $30-50 tip.
Is 200 an hour too much for a tattoo?
It all depends on the artist. $150/hr is average shop rate here, but locally I go to an artist who charges $200/hr and she is worth it. My side-piece from her was about 24 hours.

You won’t be able to get two tattoos if the placement of the second tattoo interferes with the first. Remember, you will have just received a fresh ink job, and it will experience after-session pain, swelling (within reason) and bleeding.
The best rule of thumb you can follow is to tip at least 20 percent of the total cost of your service, and tip even more for custom, intricate designs. It’s the human thing to do.
It is generally recommended to avoid getting a tattoo if you don’t have the money to tip the artist. If you play a fool and go to get a tattoo, but don’t tip afterward, then you’re just being rude. In such a case, you best avoid that tattoo shop in the future if you decide to get another tattoo.
