Inside: The coolest record player tattoos for music lovers.
Do you love music? Actually, that is a silly question; of course you do! Anyone who doesn’t like music cannot be trusted. Music has always been a large part of my life. I tend to listen to at least 30 minutes a day!
It helps me celebrate during the good times and cry during the sad times, and it gives me something to relate to during the times that I feel all alone.
Music is very special to me. And I am guessing if you are thinking about getting a record player tattoo that it must be to you as well. Huzzah!
Today, I have decided to compile some of the most Rockin’ record player tattoos that I could find on the internet. Along with these ideas, I also go over the price and pain of a record player tattoo. So stick with me, and you will learn all you need to.
Will a record player tattoo hurt?
I figured I would jump right into the question most important to the tattoo newbies. I remember the scariest party for me before getting my new tattoo was how badly it was going to hurt. This is a natural fear, so don’t feel bad about it.
Honestly, I went in terrified, but as soon as I started being tattooed, I realized it was actually quite manageable and not terrible at all. Some people(myself included) actually find it therapeutic. You know that feeling you get after a run with all of those endorphins going? Yeah…that’s the feeling you get after a tattoo.
You can get some numbing cream if you want to limit your pain(and cease your worrying before your appointment). This is used by lots of tattoo shops all over, so your artist might even have some for you.
How much will it cost?
A record player tattoo will cost anywhere from $75-$1000 depending on the size, the detail, and the color. The price also varies between artists, so I would be sure to set up a consultation before you go in to get a good idea of your price estimation.
I always try and remind people new to the tattooing community that it is customary to tip your artists. 20% is a good baseline to work with. I know this can be expensive with a larger tattoo, but try and work it into your overall price while you are saving up!
Most tattoo artists have to rent their space in a tattoo studio, so they have to give a cut of their earnings to the shop. Giving them a tip not only helps their livelihood but its a good way to show your appreciation for the work they have done for you. So do it!

I am not hesitating. How can I with tattoos as cool as these? I urge you to do the same if you feel this call as I am!
