Everyone has that one person in their family (and hopefully it’s just one person) that is simply impossible to buy a gift for no matter how far “in the sticks” you might go to find them something cool & unique. Now, if you happen to know that this person was big on body art and modification, would a tattoo gift card be the right gift for them? On the surface, it seems like a no-brainer because it’s a little money towards something they really like. Then again, does this person relish the personal nature & connection they have to their body art because they paid for it all themselves? |
All in all, it’s an odd situation, but it has begun to present itself enough so that the top tattoo studios in the country have started offering gift cards for purchase. There’s already a stigma towards the person who always gives gift cards as being too impersonal, but a gift card that could be used for a tattoo or piercing seems about as personal as it gets, right? So, is it a good gift option? Well, here’s a little food for thought:
Funds Needed — Most tattoo lovers will tell you that they’d have more tattoos if they had more money. Sometimes a distinctive design or working with a particular artist can be a little pricey, but having a gift card to help float the cost is pretty dope.
Recipient Is All About Body Art — A tattoo gift card for a straight-laced kind of guy? Bad gift. However, if your recipient is a fan and even has some art already, a gift card in that vein is cool.
Hints Abound — Does someone you know keep wishing they could get a tattoo? Do they tell you often, such as every possible moment? If so, it’s time to let them know you’ve heard the hints loud and clear & made note of the elbow nudges.
Helps Pay for Return Visit — Does your gift card recipient frequent a particular studio & artist? Why not help help keep it going for them?
Get Feedback from Tattoo Studio — Go right to the source and ask the tattoo studio whether it’s the right kind of gift for someone. Sure, they’re trying to sell you stuff, but they are also in the customer service industry. They want to be sure you feel comfortable asking questions and get you the help you need. They might be the best source for info as they could help you prepay certain aspects of upcoming body art such as aftercare products. It’s the little expenses that most folks forget to factor in to the total price.
A tattoo gift card is a very different gift, but it can be just the right gift for the right person. Sure, would it be funny to see your grandmother have a stocking stuffer gift card for a nose piercing on Christmas morning? You betcha. But move away from the gag gift factor and see a tattoo gift card as a legitimate way of telling someone that even if you’re not able to get beyond an inoculation needle, you support the art they love.
