What are tiny tattoos & how can I earn a great living with it?

Tiny tattoos, also known as micro tattoos, are subtle, delicate and often minimalist artwork that are impactful using fine lines. The tattooist uses fine needles to create images, letters, words, script writing, numbers, mandalas, geometrics or anything you can imagine.

This trend is in popular demand and is an exceptional opportunity to market a new service to potential clients. It is well suited for those who want their first tattoo, as they are subtle, refined and fairly inexpensive. Likewise, those individuals who do not feel comfortable in a tattoo studio setting will feel more at ease in the clean and comfortable environment of a medispa. Tiny tattoos are a fantastic addition to any salon, spa or medispa.

Tiny tattoos typically measure one to two inches in size. The tattooing process should take approximately one hour with setup, applying the stencil and completing the tattoo. This is where charging $75 to $100 or more for the hour can be highly lucrative. Consultation and unique designs are an additional hourly fee, as well as upsells to larger or more complex tattoo designs.

While they can be applied anywhere, the most popular placements for tiny tattoos include behind the ears, on the wrists or on ankles. These are sensitive areas, so it is important to be well trained to handle them with a delicate touch.
