Hey fam! The last three weeks have been a crazy whirlwind! 🌪 🤪
So much has happened. Mostly good things (married the man of my dreams), some pretty harsh things (exhausted myself to the point of collapsing and got injured).
But I’ll be back to my regularly scheduled piercing program @skinstoriestattoo this Wednesday, October 10th. 😎
♥️As a thank you for your love, support, and patience... I’m giving y’all a wedding gift! 🎁
. ••⭐️⭐️$5 off all piercings Wednesday thru Saturday when you mention this post!⭐️⭐️••
😉So come see me as a brand new wife and get pierced for a bit of fun in life!
Tonight at @skinstoriestattoo I’m doing a mystery special on piercings! .
🌟Everyone’s a winner!🌟
Not everyone knows this, but that’s why I’m here to spread the knowledge! While it is definitely your choice, and you will get great service either way, you should know...
🔹It is customary to tip your body piercer! This also goes for tattoo artists, but I’m a piercer, so I’m focusing on that right now.
▪️Piercing artists are independent contractors. We do not get paid an hourly wage. All of our income is earned by piercing. .
▪️We work on commission for a percentage. We DO NOT keep the money you spend on a piercing. We get a percentage of that money, and the rest goes to the shop we work in.
For many piercers, that percentage is half, or less than half of the cost of your piercing. .
▪️We do not make extra money by selling jewelry or aftercare products. If I urge you to purchase a product, it’s because I believe in that product, and I know it works. I don’t get brownie points or a kickback from those sales. 🔹A customary tip is about 20% of your total price. If your piercer goes above and beyond for you, feel free to tip a little extra.
We might do special things like:
••Taking extra time to have a really in-depth consultation with you or help you pick out the perfect jewelry. ••Doing little things to help calm you down if you’re super nervous. ••Answering LOADS of questions online and/or in the shop. ••Teaching you breathing techniques or other ways to help make the piercing process as comfortable as possible for you. ••If you’re a heavy bleeder, and we take extra time and care to clean up a lot of your blood.
Just to name a few.
Not tipping your body artist is the same as not tipping your server if you had a good experience at a restaurant. Or not tipping your stylist after a great hairstyle. Bad form. .
And now you know. So, go forth and make it rain on the people who provide a service to beautify your body! ♥️😊🧚🏻♀️
