This time of year, we love that clients come in and purchase things for our studio to give to a loved one in hopes of getting them tattooed. There's nothing better than a permanent gift.
We also receive a lot of calls around Christmas from people wanting to get their kids tattooed. Though we appreciate wanting to trust us with a permanent work of art, we do not tattoo under 18 for any reason. What can we recommend for your 17 year old? Get them a gift card, which never expires, and have them start planning a beautiful work of art, then set an appointment for their 18th birthday. You can show your support, and also ensure that they will receive a beautiful and professionally done piece. It also allows plenty of time for a solid tattoo idea to be made, and gives something to look forward to.
What ever gifts you choose to give, we hope you have a safe and happy holiday season!
