Poor people and tattoos

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.

Tattooing is addictive to some people.

Eeek a ten dollar tattoo? This is where that saying comes in "you get what you pay for".
But I totally understand what you are saying. If you're that broke, that 10 dollars (or what have you) could definitely go somewhere more important.

I save forever in order to get my tattoos. All birthday money gets saved for that purpose. If there is more important things, then I make sure to prioritize.

A dollar, Haha. That's silly.

*yawn* shit happens. I don't pay very much for mine, but I always make sure I have enough for the tat and the tip!
