I work as a piercist in the same shop as my tattoo artist boyfriend, giiiirrrl. You seem to have been doing this for a while, any tips on how to overcome jealousy? I've been dating a tattoo artist for several months now,and we are happy. There's times it drives me crazy but fact of the matter is I love him so ill stand beside him thru and thru.. It is hard but at the end of the day it's so worth it The one I had, from what I found out later on cheated in everyone he was ever with.
Got him a youngen' within just a few weeks. We were together 2 years. I figure she was in the picture before our split. And falling for "him" tattoo artist gradually.. I'm falling in love with my tattoo artist. I absolutely love this! I have been with my tattoo artist for 7 years now, and I couldn't agree more with what you said. Unlike most women, I don't struggle with the typical jealousy issues. I actually understand the industry, and know that every artist is different. On the flip side, I also know that I was once his customer, and that the possibility exists that it might happen again.
That's life, but that's life in every relationship. I think it would definitely bother me more if he decided to give free work to a woman for advertisement. I've actually never heard of such a thing, and I've been around many artists. I've heard of "this for that", but never "hey let me sleeve you out for free so people can see my work.
I can say that the main struggle in my relationship was definitely the time, but with age has come much wisdom and we finally got that hashed out. If I could give any advice to the woman of an artist it would be to get to know the man you're with before jumping to conclusions. All men are different, and all artists do not have the same work ethic. If you have a true artist on your hands, you will know. Also know that the same way you stress about the long nights alone and lack of communication due to their working schedule; they also stress about their woman getting tired of being alone and spending time elsewhere.
When I began my relationship, he had been tattooing for only 5 years and had nothing. I was 22, he was Now we have a very successful and beautiful shop and live close to it. It took a lot of growing up on both ends and we will both admit that we are where we are at now because of my diligence in working things out.
Being with a tattoo artist and business owner is not for the weak or those who lack confidence, and I say this with all honesty and compassion. If you're not willing to put in work or make some personal sacrifices in order to be the "supportive woman", than its best to move on. With regards to tattooing for free, I sincerely hope that artists understand that time is money and any time away from your family is definitely worth some money!!
If a woman ever told me she was sleeping with my man , my first question would be "did she pay for her tattoos? I do not condone cheating, but I refuse to consume time stressing about it when there are kids to feed and bills to pay. Can I get an Amen? I wish you all the best and I hope to read more interesting stories. It's nice to have a community of "tattoo wives" to go to, because the reality is not many others understand the struggle! It has been over two years since I commented here.
I am now married to my guy and life just gets better everyday.
Questions & Answers
I have faced a lot of problems in my relationship especially when it came to trust and it was certainly not easy. I had to realize that my love for my guy triumphed over my trust issues. I was tired of getting myself upset over these little tattoo groupies and pushing him further away. It came to a point where I said to him I will trust you till you give me a reason not to. As for the loneliness I now kinda enjoy doing things on my own now when him and I get together the time is that much better and we have a lot more to talk about.
It gets better ladies! Just hang in there!!!! It's a private group so everything in it will stay within the group. My man won't allow it either. To them going to someone else is about the equivalent of cheating.
Hope im not too late! I am also a wife of a tattoo artist. I as well enjoyed the article. I really can't relate my issues to my girlfriends or family because there really not in the same possesion as we all may be. I love my husband to the fullest, I am blessed that he is in a career that he is happy in. But there are many times I think to myself, "wow, why did I ever give my consent? I too whish there was a way we can communicate as wives with our many issues. I believe it take a special person to be in a relationship with a tattoo artists.
There is a lot of give and take. I have ro remember that these customers are paying our bills and that is all. I to at times feel like I cant take anymore. But what is love without a little struggle? Ive been married to him for almost 10 years. Sometime I wonder if im suffocating myself and need to allow myself to live a little.

We have now been married 2 months. My only concern is now we have so much less one together and I feel so alone! Sorry, phone cut off the rest. Yes dating an artist has its challenges, everything you can imagine is tested. Trust, jealousy, communication everything. The thing is, they meet new clients every day, some tats take longer to do and they get to know each other or whatever.

After reading all of this I know I'm not crazy. I've been dating an artist for bout 5 years and I will say they all cheat, I've seen it all. I am a wife of a tattoo artist. We have been married 11 years and together longer. We have 2 kids, and a Business This is a lovely article, and yes I agree that we need a FB group to communicate and support each other.
I know, I live it But, I am okay with it too I just found out a couple weeks ago that my H has cheated I got a random FB message to my personal account saying 'Your husband was tattooing me a few years back and whoops he tripped and fell into my vagina!! I had always wondered if he cheated on me with girls from the shop He confessed, He has cheated He penetrated this Chick He said he has done other things too, But not penetrated them What a Fricken Mess this is I am not sure how this will all play out But, I can say that if you think something is going on IT most likely is If anyone is interested in starting a group for tattoo artists girlfriends let me know.
I think it could be of use to all of us - lol. I think there should be a group for girlfriends of tattoo artists on Facebook or something. That was we have a way to communicate and bounce thoughts off each other whenever. Very special idea indeed! But I'm caught by the tattoos. Most of these are so wonderful that I have to move on these ;. Thanks for an exclusive view.
