I recently saw a local shop that provides financing and thought "that's weird" because I've never even considered it an option. When I got my first sleeve it costs me about $4,800 and even though I had the money I would have rather paid in monthly installments, even if I had to pay abit of interest, just to free up some cash in the mean time. I understand why most artists don't do it, as they want money upfront to pay for overhead/supplies and so on, but if you had the option would you? What if their was an interest charge? I think it would allow some to go to more expensive artists and get better work which would be cool, or to allow them continue their ink addiction (If I had the money I'd have a second sleeve right now). Let me know what you think, I'm curious!
