Chair rental. commission or both?

Recommended Posts

Hey guys-

Doing some research into the tattoo industry and one topic which is quite hard to find information on is how artists are generally reimbursed.  So I have a few questions; any information you can provide will be very useful :).

  1. Do you know any situations where tattoo artists are employed by the studio, rather than being contractors?
  2. If they are employed, do they have a minimum wage + commision on top? Like a salon.
  3. If renting a chair, do artists also give a percentage of their income?
  4. Do different artists in the same studio have different deals?
  5. What kind of contract do artists normally sign? If at all?


Thanks a lot in advance for any answers you can provide
