  • It depends on the shop you work at. You have to pay for your supplies, and if you work in a shop then you have to pay a portion of your earnings to the owner of said shop. It also greatly depends on how big of a client base you build up, and whether or not that client base is full of good tippers.

    Once established as a good artist, you'll undoubtedly make more than you would just starting out. Because you'll have loyal clients bringing you new clients, and you'll eventually build up the talent enough to hopefully not have to work in someone else's shop and commission them a portion of your pay.

  • Yes, in South Korea for example they are because it's illegal there and only doctors are allowed to tattoo people - and those aren't good at it of course...

  • depends on how good they are and where they work. plus, what kind of work they do. those with a bunch of experience who've been in larger tatto magazines tend to get a decent amount of popularity and people will seek them out for bigger, more complicated pieces

  • Depends on the number of clients per day and how well in business they are. Experience, and creativity is also important.

  • Like any other career involving the arts, the more skillful you are at it the better the pay.
