360 of finished calf piece, maybe it’s time to start thinking about your next big tattoo!
Summer may seem like the go to season for tattoos as we wear less clothing and show more skin....but fall and winter are a convenient time for your ink to heal without missing out on a beach trip or having too much sun exposure while doing yard work.
Many may not realize, but tattoo artists experience somewhat of a slow season. Without people eager to get ink that they know can be shown off immediately, some shops may feel a little more dead than usual.
The Holidays can also impact a shops traffic flow as many people feel like they are spending too much money elsewhere to be getting ink. What most forget is that your favorite artist or shop probably have merch/gift cards that make for really unique gifts to put on the wishlist or to extend out to a friend who may need that extra push to get that tattoo they’ve always been talking about.
Saving booking your appointment for this time of year also gives you and friends something to do as sometimes our hobbies or weekend plans can feel limited during rainy and snowy weather.
Think about everyone’s reaction when you reveal a collection of new ink you’ve been secretly building up during the colder months.
