My husband is an artist. We have owned a tattoo parlor in the past. I have noticed through the years that people want tattoos when they have no other money. For instance .. "I only have $$ for this tattoo." Yes I get budgets, but you can tell these people literally have x amount of money for tattoos. I was reminded of this because I have a distant cousin on my Facebook and she does bootleg tattoos..(yuck) anyway, someone posted on her page that she wants her baby's daddy's name done and how much would she charge. $10 is the charge. The girl says "ok on my way is it ok if I pay you $9 now and $1 on Friday?" If you only have $9 ... Can't even come up with ONE MORE DOLLAR.. then why are you spending it on a tattoo??
Going anon but some may know who I am.
