Tipping and your Tattoo Artist
We agree that tattoos aren’t cheap, but not tipping your artist for a job well done is a big no-no. Depending on how much your tattoo costs, the minimum amount is 10%. Giving 15% means you loved the work, and 20% says that you’re highly impressed by their work.

What Does the Infinity Symbol Mean
Because of its simplicity, infinity tattoos look good on both men and women. Plus, with ‘limitless’ design possibilities, it’s no wonder the symbol is gaining huge popularity in the world of tattoos. But what does this symbol truly mean? Apart from the obvious explanation―an idea of something with no limits or an end―the symbol of infinity can hold specific meanings for the mass. Let’s look into some general, more agreeable infinity tattoo meanings.
1. As the circles of the lemniscate (eight-shaped curve) sit next to one another, an infinite symbol most commonly represents equality or balance between two opposite forces. Also, the sign can stand for wholeness, completion, permanence, and eternity. Basically, the symbol gives light to the idea of life’s endless, unlimited, and ongoing processes.
2. This symbol is also used to create several Celtic knots that have no beginning or an end. While incorporating the symbol with these knots, you too can create a design that can represent the message―an everlasting circle (of life).
3. A double infinity sign usually represents the concept of long-lasting balance in life to love and relationships.
4. With all these talks about ‘endlessness’, everyone may not agree to the concept. Which is why, some people choose to get a broken infinity symbol as their tattoo. This concept can represent that not everything in this world is continuously flowing or eternal; there are moments or things in life that do actually cease to exist.
Of course, there are many, many more ways to incorporate elements with the symbol. Basically, you should give yourself ample time to think about the concept for the tattoo, and then make a decision. As you already know, a tattoo is permanent; and choosing a design is a lifetime commitment that can come to haunt the best of us.
