I had a very intricate tattoo done on my calf that was paid in full.About 3 hours into it my leg...
was raw and jumping uncontrollably.We ended the session and the tattoo is half done.When I went to make my follow up appointment to finish the tattoo they told me it was another 60 dollars for a "set up fee".Is this proper protocol?Does the artist have anything to do with the prices(she is awesome btw)?
some artist can control prices, but in some cases the shop will control base fees.
When a shop talks about a "set-up fee" that means what it costs them in equipment (machines, needles, ink, sterilization) to do a tattoo.
Shops often do set a base price, to cover material expenses and then the artist sets their art/work fee on top of that.
The main question is should there be a "set-up" fee for the second go round?

Okay, so I wanna get permanent eye brows. Mine are so light you cannot see them. I have to draw them on. Know anyone who has ever had permanent eyebrows and the results? I would think they would fade, much like tattoos.
