If you’re a tattoo artist, you’ve correctly chosen the absolute best social media platform for promoting your business. Instagram is a purely visual tool, and its users are all about exploring new aesthetics. 

Instagram can definitely help you promote your business and reach more clients. Here are some tips for doing it right:

Use only clean, sharp images.

You run a tattoo business – you know the importance of cleanliness and precision! Don’t give your potential clients the wrong impression. Make sure your images have a clean or soft-focus background, bright lighting, and sharp focus. And remember, just because you’re working in a tattoo studio doesn’t mean your photos all have to be taken in the chair! Check out some ideas for a fresh take on tattoo photography.

Add a discreet watermark.

This way, if your image gets reposted you’ll give people even more ways to find you. 

Tag smartly.

Add between 15 and 25 strong, relevant hashtags on your posts so that people browsing Instagram can find you. Emphasis on relevant! If you start adding dozens of random tags like “amazing”, you’ll start to look spammy and desperate. Check Tags for Likesto find popular keywords in the tattoo or art industry.

Show off your process.

If people are digging your tattoos, they’ll also love seeing how you work. Throw up some works in progress!

And don’t be afraid to post some shots from your life, your inspiration and your workplace, these can all help shape your image and brand. As long as it keeps your wall clean!


Give a shoutout!

Unless you can get your clients to come back in for a photoshoot, most of your images are going to be of raw, red skin.


Re-post your client’s instagrams of their new tattoos in action! This is a great way to show them your appreciation, and they’ll be happy to get the exposure.

If you work with other artists like photographers, illustrators or videographers, make sure to give them shoutouts too. Artists got to have each other’s back… and they might do you a favor by giving you a shoutout back.
