Finding the right gift for somebody you care about can be a challenging endeavor as you feel pressure to get it just right. If you know somebody who loves tattoos, then an ink-related gift may be the solution you’re looking for. Here are six excellent gift options for people who love tattoos.
Buy a Session
If you know a tattoo enthusiast who is always looking for their next piece of ink, then gifting them a session with their favorite tattoo artist is an excellent gift option. You can pay for a specific piece of work you know they’ve wanted, or book out a set period of time and allow them to decide what they want to get done in the session. They’ll love the opportunity to get tattooed for free.
Get a Gift Card
If you’re unsure of what type of work your friend or loved one is looking to get done it can be hard to book a session as you don’t know how long they will need. Instead, you can purchase them a gift card from their favorite tattoo parlor. This allows them to apply it partially to a big piece of work, or split it over two or more smaller ones, should they prefer to do so.
Commission Some Art
Not everything you’re considering for the tattoo lover in your life has to be about getting the new work done. Another excellent option is to get them some tattoo artwork. This can be a piece of art in one of the classic tattoo styles or an art commission from a tattoo artist they use or wish they could afford to patronize.
Buy a Novelty Gift
Not every gift needs to be a big-ticket item. You can pick up a novelty item for your tattoo loving friend, like a ceramic mug styled after traditional tattoo skull designs, or a baby onesie with fake tattoo sleeves to the baby look like mom or dad. There are many tattoo-related small gift items, so you can find something that combines their love of tattoos with another personal interest.
Get Inked Yourself
If your loved one is a tattoo enthusiast but you’ve never had one, then getting a tattoo yourself can be a great surprise gift. When you unveil your new ink and show the emotional tie it has for your relationship they’ll know how much they mean to you and cherish the importance of such a big statement.
Pay for a Removal
Even a tattoo gotten with the best of intentions can go awry. Whether it’s a matter of failed artwork or a change in lifestyle meaning the design no longer resonates with its wearer when this occurs the need for removal arises. If your friend or loved one has a design you know they’ve been looking to remove or cover-up, buying them laser removal sessions can start them on the way to the look they desire just as much as a session for a new design.
When you buy a gift for a tattoo-lover that lets them enhance their enjoyment of body art, you help encourage them to follow their passions. Get the tattoo enthusiast in your life a gift they’ll cherish. They’ll be glad you did.
