Those of us in the tattoo industry pride ourselves in being different. We go against the grain and consistently work on pushing ourselves to become stronger, more diversified tattooers. Our commitment to our own craft sets up apart from traditional society. Contrary to what some may think, tattooing isn’t always glamorous and for many tattoo artists, we don’t exactly rake in significant cash everyday despite our professional experience. This is why, for those of us that celebrate, we appreciate receiving tattoo-related gifts during the holidays! While our personalities obviously aren’t all the same – we do share an affinity for high-quality tattoo products. Navigating the tattoo world might make it difficult for loved ones that want to purchase a thoughtful yet useful present during the holidays. This is why we’ve created this handy tattoo artist gift guide for any celebration from Christmas to Hanukkah to Kwanzaa to birthdays.
