Default A Question for Tattoo Artists

Just curious...Generally speaking, what percentage of the cost of a tattoo goes to the artist and what percentage goes to the house? I know it probably differs from artist to artist and from shop to shop but I'm just wondering...ballpark, what the percentages are? Or is it even done as a percentage? I guess the bigger question is How are you guys paid...and how is the shop paid?

Thanks,
Mope

I sure didn't mean to sound like I was prying. Not a big deal, just idle curiosity about how the pay structure works. Most businesses are hourly or salary but I assume that tattoo shops don't operate that way...I don't really see how they could. Anyway, apologies if necessary.

LOL Too late! I read your response! J/K... seriously, it's no big deal. I didn't mean to get into anybody's personal business. Just forget I asked.
