Because no gift is as permanent as ink.
So you forgot to get a gift and now you have to come up with something at the last minute. It happens to the best of us.
Unfortunately, you don't know too much about the receiver of the gift other than the fact that they really like tattoos. You're in luck then, because we're here to bail you out and find you some of the best presents in any price range that you can buy for that special ink lover in your life.
Here are five presents that the tattooed folk in your life will appreciate way more than that Visa gift card you were about to get them.
Tattoo Gift Cards
Although some ingrates might say that gift certificates and cards aren't really gifts, they are when they're for an awesome tattoo. Many top-notch tattooers and shops offer discounts and deals on gift certificates leading up to the holidays, so you can often even get some extra money on one. Considering the price of a quality tattoo, anyone would appreciate a little assistance paying for their next session (even if it only covers an hour's worth of work).
If you're really feeling like going above and beyond, feel free to go as far as scheduling them an appointment (that they'll actually able to make) and/or putting down a deposit as part of the gift. It's a lot more work, but that extra thought and time spent on the gift will make it look like you didn't just think of it at the last minute. Of course, it's helpful to find out which tattoo artist/shop the certificate's recipient prefers, but most collectors wouldn't turn down a free session at a reputable shop even if it wasn't their favorite one.
